How to Choose the Best Items for Your Makeup Pouch

Have you ever reached into your purse to find your favorite lip gloss, only to pull out something entirely different and a hand covered in powder? Yeah, we’ve all been there. That's why we’ve created a list of everyday makeup must-haves to help you separate essentials from non-essentials and only pack beauty products that are simple and effective.

We’re taking a look at five key items to keep in your makeup pouch wherever you wander.


1. Even things out with foundation

Even if you apply a long-wearing foundation in the morning, there are times when you’re going to need a touch-up. As such, you’ll want to include your foundation of choice in the makeup travel bag you keep in your purse.

What type of foundation you keep with you will depend on your skin type and needs. For example, oily skin types may opt for a buildable powder foundation like Wanderlust to balance your complexion and give you a matte finish. Those needing to brighten the under-eye area or target blemishes will favor the Dualist Matte and Illuminating Concealer, while someone going to the gym – who will need to redo their makeup entirely – may take along their favorite liquid foundation.

Choosing a formula enriched with hyaluronate and niacinamide, such as Nude Illusion Liquid Foundation, will give you a flawless complexion. It nourishes and hydrates your skin while you're wearing it – improving the appearance and elasticity of your skin over time. That's what we call a win-win!


2. Stay protected with SPF

Like your cleanser and moisturizer, sunscreen is not technically a makeup product, and you're unlikely to keep these with you on a regular day (unless you're going to the gym or planning a night away from home). However, sunscreen is a must as part of your travel makeup kit.

Experts recommend reapplying sunscreen on average every two hours, regardless of the season or whether you're indoors or outdoors. A lightweight mineral sunscreen such as Pack Up & Glow Priming Mineral SPF 40 is the ideal product to keep you gorgeous on the go. The sleek tube is travel-friendly, and the skin-perfecting formula provides a luminous, healthy glow while priming and protecting your skin. Designed by experts, this non-greasy formula is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.


3. Revitalize your look with a slick of eye makeup

A little mascara and a touch of color are all you need to revive tired eyes. The best mascaras for traveling are those that don't flake or smudge. A classic black formula will add volume and length to your lashes. Fortunately, mascara is already space-efficient, but if you're all about maximizing space, a travel-sized version such as Mini Unlashed Volume and Curl Mascara will do the trick.

To take your look from day to night or to freshen and brighten your face, be sure to keep an eyeshadow palette on hand. When on the go, there's no need to cart your 35-shade palette with you. A simple duo formula like Double Date Eyeshadow Duo will suffice. With a variety of duo shades to choose from, you’ll have everything you need (mirror included!) in an ultra-handy compact.

However, if you're looking for a do-it-all formula, the Getaway Eye & Face Palette is the answer to your makeup dreams. With four shadows, a highlighter, blush, and bronzer, you can create a variety of looks from the palm of your hand.


4. Boost your radiance with cheek color

Cream blushes are one of the best travel hacks, as they can be used on your cheeks, lips, eyes, and body. On-the-Glow Blush and Illuminator helps you streamline your beauty routine with a cream color on the one end and a buildable highlighter on the other. Available in five different shades, all you need to do is swipe the product across your cheeks (or lips or eyes), and blend with your fingertips. It’s the fastest, easiest way to bring life back to your face!

If you're pressed for space, the Mini Trip to Tahiti or Mini Trip to Costa Rei will deliver a natural, sun-kissed look in a single swipe. Enriched with sea buckthorn oil, lotus flower extract, and mango seed butter to rejuvenate, hydrate, and brighten the skin, these mini bronzers take efficiency to the next level. Just remember to also pack your Round Trip Dual Blush and Bronzer Brush.


5. Complete your look with lip color

Lip color completes any look, and keeping your lips soft and moisturized is just as essential. If you're after the buildable coverage of a lipstick with the comfort of a balm, look no further. Double Booked Lip Cream & Conditioner provides a creamy lip color on the one end, and a hydrating and nourishing balm on the other, making it the ideal lip-loving companion for all your adventures. Formulated with shea butter and vitamin E, you’re guaranteed luxuriously luscious lips wherever you wander.
