Beauty Essentials: Must Have In Your Travel Bag

Traveling has a special place in my heart. But packing beauty essentials just freaks me out! I just want my 300 makeup items to fit in my travel case is that too much to ask for?

Alright, I know, unless I have travel size makeup I can’t bring all my babies with me.

I am here to save you from the struggle of deciding wich beauty essentials to pack + some important travel essentials for women.

So ladies, grab your bullet journal and make that checklist right now!

First and for most, you need a travel makeup bag:

Here’s why a travel makeup bag and travel size makeup should be your number one on the list of beauty essentials: These items help you organize and store better, they’re designed to make your life easier basically.

With a convenient size, you can easily fill the tubes with your desired product ( sunscreen, BB cream, etc…)

Now going through security checks shouldn’t be a problem anymore.

Have some under eye concealer: you know why

Finding the perfect under-eye concealer is a huge challenge. But once you find it you say goodbye to dark circles. And you see the blemishes go away. Although it’s not permanent but it sure as hell helps.

So it’s only normal to have in your travel beauty kit. With travel, restless nights come. Long drives and flights. And sometimes that could take a toll on beautiful face.

Concealer is on the top of the list of travel essentials for women, because it can give the illusion that you actually slept in a comfortable hotel bed and not on the cold floor of an airport somewhere.

Now be sure that you have it in your beauty essentials bag. (this little round container sure goes unnoticed in your travel makeup bag)


According to our team of makeup experts, the top 3 concealers are:

  • Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind Concealer
  • Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Concealer
  • NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer

Lip balm is the definition of beauty essentials:

Listen up ladies!!!! I found the answer for split lips. With the change in weather your poor lips become crusty, and they start getting split open and blood oozes out of them. (not actually, but that’s how it feels like)

And it’s not a very pretty sight.

Moisturizing lip balms can help stop the dry and cold weather from cracking your lips. It also helps you when you neglect your hydration. Keeping your lips well and pretty.

Add it in your beauty essentials bag, just do it right now cause it’s easy to forget such a small item.


As we did for the concealers, I had a small chat with my fellow women and asked them about the top 3 lip balms. And they gave me a list.

  • Burt’s Bees 100% Natural Moisturizing Lip Balm
  • Vaseline Lip Therapy Lip Balm Mini, Creme Brulee
  • Maybelline Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Balm
