Eyeshadow palette

Choose an eyeshadow palette with a few different shades that you usually wear. This can be anything from mattes, nudes or shimmers, which can be worn alone or blended together to create a few different looks.

Mini makeup brushes

Who wants the hassle of carrying full-size makeup brushes on their trip abroad? Instead, carry a mini-sized foundation, contour and blush brush (which are usually half the size of your standard brush). They fit into any makeup kit and won’t hog too much room, either!

Foundation (tinted moisturiser) with sunscreen

You might want to bring one to two foundations on your trip, but make sure they are packed with sunscreen. Not only will it protect your skin during the day, but it can also be applied anywhere else on the body for additional coverage. Packing a slighter darker shade is a good idea if your tan is too dark for your foundation.

Blotting papers

If you’re going on a summer holiday, blotting papers are a must-have in lieu of a translucent powder. Even if your skin isn’t on the oily side, they help to remove shine on the chin, t-zone and forehead.

Cover any existing pimples or imperfections with the help of a creamy cleanser. Use one with a dofer applicator which is quick and easy to use if you’re constantly on-the-go.

Cheek and lip tint

Don’t waste space in your makeup kit by carrying both a blush and lip products. Where possible, try to double it up and carry a 2-in-1 to save yourself time and space.
