Travel Makeup: Itty Bitty BABE Faves


July 10, 2013

With summer in full swing, vacation season is underway! Every BABE knows that travel can be a hassle when dealing with baggage-size requirements and lost luggage. Not to fear! We’ve rounded up some of our favorite travel makeup  mini-me’s that pack a lot of power in itty bitty sizes:

For your face:

  • Urban Decay’s Travel Size Naked Skin Beauty Balm ($14) – BB cream is a MUST when traveling! And this one from Urban Decay’s Naked line tops them all–it perfects, protects, treats, primes and hydrates in UrbanDecay_NakedBBone application. Apply this as your concealer, moisturizer, sunscreen and foundation all in one.
  • Benefit Cosmetic’s Gettin’ Cheeky Trio Travel Set ($17) – This trio of Benefit’s famous lip and cheek stains are all the color you’ll need to brighten up your face! And because it’s a stain, it’s smudge-proof, so no need to worry about makeup meltdown while you’re busy exploring a new place.
  • Sephora Collection Skinny Brush Wrap ($36) – This basic brush collection has all the essentials you need for travel, without the risk of losing your valuable at-home brush set. Plus, the shiny compact case protects the integrity of the bristles and makes sure midday touch-ups are easy and quick.

For your eyes:

  • Dior Best in Show – Mini Mascara Duo ($20) – The cult-favorite now comes in travel-size! This mascara duo features DiorShow Mascara and DiorShow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum and Primer.
  • LORAC ‘Ooh La Lace’ Shimmer and Matte Eyeshadow Palette ($36) – If there is one eyeshadow palette you need to take on vacation, it is this one by LORAC. Achieve big, beautiful eyes with the six smoldering colors in this palette. Then grab your travel-size eyeliner brush and chose one of the colors to create a sexy, smoky eye!

To pack it all up:

  • Kate Spade ‘le pavillion – medium heddy’ Cosmetics Bag ($70) – We are OBSESSED with the purple version of this adorable bag! This travel bag is the perfect size for the products above and has a wipe-clean KateSpade-Travelliner for any messy spills. It’s too perfect!
