The Ultimate List of Essentials To Keep In Your Travel Makeup Kit

If you love to nail your every look while on a trip, one of the things that you should have is a travel makeup kit with the most essential items. Since you cannot bring your entire makeup collection, you’re gonna have to narrow it to a few products to take with you.



As you will most likely have limited space in your baggage, packing your travel makeup kit might be challenging. However, this blog will help you not to compromise your beauty regimen as it gives the ultimate list of essentials to keep in your travel makeup kit.


1. Sunscreen


Although sunscreen isn't technically a makeup product, it is very important to take this with you during travel to continuously protect your skin from the sun. The type of sunscreen will depend on where you're headed to.


If you're headed to the beach, you'll probably need a sunscreen that is water-resistant and has high SPF. But if you're headed on a trip where you aren't going to spend a lot of time outdoors, a moisturizer with SPF 30 will suffice.


2. Tinted Moisturizer


A tinted moisturizer is a good product to bring with you during travel. It is lightweight with just a hint of color that evens out your skin tone and at the same time hydrates your skin. If you want to have a natural glow without looking like you're wearing makeup, this is perfect for you!


3. Concealer


If you don't want to touch up throughout the day, pick a concealer with a long-lasting formula that has a great brightening effect on your skin. Bring one that's easy to blend even without a brush applicator.


4. Powder


A good powder is essential for it makes your look last longer and does not move around, or rub off your skin in just a light dusting layer. This is especially useful in a warm, humid climate.


5. Bronzer


Bronzer is perfect for adding warmth and color to your face. There are several types of bronzers out there that come in different shades and colors to suit various skin tones. It adds dimension to the face by sculpting the features and of course, enhancing your face shape!


6. Blush


Another product that is essential to bring during travel is a blush. In just a few swipes, it makes your complexion healthier and makes your skin more youthful. It adds a glow that bronzer and highlighter can't do. For easy application and multipurpose, you can bring cream blushes.


7. Brow Pencils/Gel


Who doesn't want to pull off beautiful, perfectly defined eyebrows on every look? A good eyebrow pencil is a must when traveling so you can quickly fill in your brows. The long-lasting or water-proof formula is recommended, so you don't have to worry about it wearing off throughout the day.


8. Eyeshadow


If you love wearing eyeshadow, it's really hard to choose one out of the multiple eyeshadow palettes in your collection. Just choose a neutral color that will blend in perfectly with the rest of your makeup. Invest in a smaller palette with the basic colors or shades you'll need to create a variety of looks.


9. Mascara


Mascara is important as it transforms any makeup look. In preparing a travel makeup kit, choosing the right product is also a must. Choose a mascara that is long-lasting and water-resistant so it doesn't smudge or flake, especially when you're planning to spend a lot of time outdoors.


10. Tinted Lip Balm


Lastly, an essential item that is also on the go and easy to apply is the tinted lip balm. It hydrates your lips, along with adding a hint of color to them. It also brightens your appearance and makes you look fresh and younger.


When it comes to choosing essential items in your travel makeup kit, everyone has their own preferences. Some prefer more skincare products than actual makeup, and some prefer the contrary. Nonetheless, knowing how to pack a travel kit in such a way that they are organized and safe during travel is essential. It might be challenging, but this shouldn't stop you from looking and feeling your best!
