Your Must-Have Makeup Essentials for Travel

Traveling is a fantastic way to explore new places, create beautiful memories, and take a break from your daily routine, especially when summer is around the corner. Whether you’re heading to the beach, exploring a new city, or going on a hiking adventure, you’ll still want to look and feel your best. But carrying your entire makeup collection can be a hassle. So, here are some easy-to-carry and versatile makeup picks that will keep you looking fabulous on your travels. 


  • BB Cream or Tinted Moisturizer

When you’re on the go, a heavy foundation can be too much. Instead, opt for a BB cream or tinted moisturizer. These lightweight options provide coverage while also hydrating your skin. Plus, they usually come in travel-friendly tubes, making them easy to pack and apply.


bareMinerals Cimplexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream $59

Totally effortless and perfectly portable, this award-winning skin tint is your new go-to for a dewy, healthy-looking glow.


Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser Oil Free $67

Achieve long lasting oil-free hydration with a lightweight sheer coverage. This formula provides a comfortable wear on the skin and gives a blurred demi-matte finish, plus it has been infused with vitamin E for protection against environmental aggressors.


  • Concealer

Concealer is your best friend when you need to cover up blemishes, dark circles, or redness. A small tube or pot of concealer is a must-have for any traveler. It’s compact and can save the day when you need a quick touch-up.


Too Faced Born This Way Mini $26

Available now as a mini, this photo-friendly concealer will add coverage, cover redness and conceal dark circles with a crease-free, undetectable finish.

Kosas Revealer Super Creamy + Brightening Concealer $48

This medium coverage vegan concealer works to visibly brighten and hydrates the under eyes and calms blemishes around the face, but still leaves your skin looking like skin.


  • Multipurpose Cheek and Lip Tint

To save space in your makeup bag, go for a cheek and lip tint. These products can add a natural flush of color to your cheeks and lips, eliminating the need for separate blush and lipstick. Plus, they often come in small, portable containers.

Milk Lip and Cheek Tint $39

A multi-use cream blush and lip color with a nourishing formula that builds and blends effortlessly for a natural flush.


Morphe Perk Up Cheek & Lip $18

Add a natural flush of colour over your lips and cheeks with this creamy 2-in-1 cheek and lip colour. It’s buildable and blends seamlessly into the skin coating you with just the right amount of natural colour.


  • Travel-Sized Eyeshadow Palette

A compact eyeshadow palette with versatile shades is perfect for creating various eye looks during your trip. Look for one with neutral tones that can be used for both day and night looks.

Mecca Max Mini Mix Eyeshadow Palette $20

These buttery-soft, highly pigmented eyeshadow palettes are designed to be swatched, smudged and swapped wherever you go.

Tarte Tartelette Fresh Picked $41

Spice up your everyday look with this fresh and flirty pocket-sized palette that’s packed with everyday neutral shades that are anything but basic.


  • Waterproof Mascara

Whether you’re splashing in the ocean or exploring a humid city, a waterproof mascara will keep your lashes looking long and defined. It’s a travel essential, especially if you plan to visit places with unpredictable weather.

Maybelline Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara Waterproof $12,99


Rimmel 100% Waterproof Mascara $6,97


  • Eyebrow Pencil or Gel

Well-groomed brows can instantly elevate your look. Opt for an eyebrow pencil or gel that’s easy to use and doesn’t require sharpening.

  • Setting Powder or Spray

To keep your makeup in place throughout the day, use a setting powder or setting spray. This will help control shine and ensure your makeup lasts, even in hot and humid conditions.

Mecca Max Life Proof Setting Spray $18


  • Sunscreen

While not technically makeup, sunscreen is essential for protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. Opt for a travel-sized sunscreen that can easily fit in your bag.
