Beauty Hacks For Looking Gorgeous While Traveling

All-in-one shampoo and a bar of hand soap certainly don’t qualify as a travel beauty arsenal. But the idea of toting along every single product and tool this holiday is (literally) a drag. Don’t worry! We’ve got the 6 essentials you need to pack that’ll ensure you stay flawless, wherever you are.

Beauty Hacks For Holiday Travel

All-In-One Makeup Palette

A full-service palette, with blush, eye shadow, lipstick and applicators, is a time and space saver.

Eye Makeup Remover Swabs

Leave your liquid eye makeup remover at home and swap in preloaded swabs. These cotton correctors also come in handy for touch-ups when you're getting ready in a place with insufficient lighting.

Travel-Size Dry Shampoo

Extend the life of your pre-trip blowout with a dry shampoo. Pack a mini bottle and add a spritz into your scalp at the roots.

TSA-Approved Containers

Does your hair act up when you deviate from your favorite shampoo and conditioner? Keep just enough on hand in travel size containers.

Mini Curling Iron

The key to effortless '70s waves on the go? A travel-size curling iron. Allow your hair to air dry, then add strategic curls around your face and top layers of your hair. Focus on small sections and aim the iron away from your face, holding the barrel straight up.

Updo Hair Accessories

Bring barrettes and embellished bobby pins to create a sleek updo in a pinch. When in doubt, pull your hair into a topknot and secure with a few of these.
