8 Must-Have Travel Beauty Products

Don't forget to pack these pint-sized beauty essentials for this year's summer vacation!

1. Travel Brush Set

Make space in your travel bag for a few essential makeup brushes you can use throughout your trip. Pack your usual brushes so you can create your go-to makeup looks, or opt for an entire set of mini-sized brushes for the face and eyes to cover all your bases.

2. CC Cream

Pack a tinted moisturizer with SPF in your travel bag for a fresh-faced glow if you don't have the time or energy to put on heavy foundation while on vacation. The IT Cosmetics iconic CC+ Cream delivers a lightweight face base to even out your complexion and a healthy dose of SPF 50.

3. Mini Cheek Palette

Nothing says you're on vacation like perfectly bronzed cheekbones and a peachy flush. This vacation-ready palette by Benefit comes with the best-selling Hoola bronzer plus one of their WANDERful World blushes in the most loved shades. Use Hoola to warm up your complexion or sculpt your cheekbones. Pair with the blush to create a healthy, sunkissed glow.

4. Lash & Brow Serum

Being on vacation is no excuse to let your lashes and brows go. Committing to the habit of using lash and brow serums is the best way to boost your look with longer, fuller-looking lashes and brows. Toss the Best Sellers Set in your beauty bag and use it nightly during your vacation. This duo is carry-on safe, so you don't have to worry about TSA snatching it.

6. Travel-Friendly Fragrance

Glossier You Solid is an alcohol-free, water-free vegan wax base solid fragrance that melts into the skin. You'll still get the best-selling fragrance's signature warm blend without worrying about it spilling in your carry-on or all over your makeup bag.

7. Dry Shampoo

Adventure-ready hair is possible with the Briogeo Scalp Revival Charcoal + Biotin Dry Shampoo. This powder formula is more travel-friendly because it doesn't come in an aerosol can. The soothing formula absorbs excess grease with Binchotan charcoal and tea tree oil while adding volume for the perfect vacation waves.

8. Travel-Size Sunscreen

SPF is the best way to prevent sun damage, leading to premature aging, and hyperpigmentation. If you love Supergoop (like so many of us), you'll be happy to know the PLAY Everyday Lotion now comes in a smaller size so you can still get all the SPF you need while on the go.
