Packing light: makeup & skincare

Packing light: makeup & skincare

“You don’t need magic to disappear, all you need is a destination.” ✈️

I’ve gotten pretty good at packing and traveling light because we always carry-on our bags. Makeup and beauty products can take up a lot of space when you travel so I thought I’d share what my “travel-light” makeup bag looks like.

This tiny bag is full of everything I need for a week away and everything is #saferbeauty.

  • Volumizing mascara

    • My go-to Beautycounter mascara, lightweight and easy to wear

  • Toms deodorant

    • I have been on the hunt for a natural deodorant for years. I had tried Toms before and always thought I hated it. Turns out, it was becuase I wasn’t letting myself through the detox process (it’s real!) and I would still steal some of my husbands deodorant now and then before working out. Doing that, was messing up my entire process of switching to a safer alternative of deodorant. Once I went cold-turkey and stopped borrowing his, eventually, my body detoxed and I started to love Toms. Whatever brand you use, make sure you give your body time to detox. More on that here.

  • Cream eye shadow

  • Cleansing balm (the tiniest container of cleansing balm is what I use to wash my face all week)

    • Beautycounter magic product: mask, cleanser, moisturizer, eye makeup remover

    • I love it for travel becuase it can do so many things and now it’s available in an even smaller size!

  • Dew skin tinted moisturizer

    • I always travel with this becuase I love the SPF and the way it gives me a glow

  • No.2 Plumping Oil (for before bed if I need a little extra moisture)

    • Lightweight and silky smooth, this proprietary blend of seven natural oils moisturizes, nourishes, and helps firm skin. Fragrant jasmine oil replenishes moisture, while omega-rich argan oil helps minimize the appearance of fine lines. Perfect for all skin types, especially those concerned with dry skin, loss of elasticity, and fine lines.

  • Sunscreen skin stick (everyone needs this, so great for running - the small size fits in any purse or fannypack)

    • Always carry this around to quickly swipe on my face or to cover a tattoo to protect from the sun. #MUSTHAVE

  • Lip gloss

    • The mini’s are so perfect for travel!

  • Lip sheer

  • Touch up Skin Concealer Pen

  • Overnight resurfacing peel (I took 2 pumps with me in a tiny sample container)

    • The peel is magical and I can’t say enough good things about it! Goodnight, dullness. Good morning, glow. A proprietary blend of over 15 acids in this AHA/BHA peel clears away dull surface cells and improves skin texture – without irritation or over-drying.

  • Mini scrunchie (my friend got me hooked on these, they are easier on your hair)

What are some of your travel beauty hacks?
