The top 10 makeup essentials to travel with NOW:

When I travel, it’s always a goal to travel light. A huge goal is to never have to travel abroad with 2+ suitcases. (So far, so good!) The biggest things I prefer to leave behind are multiple pairs of space hogging shoes, hair products (minus leave-in conditioner because that is a necessity people), and most of all, makeup.

**Spoiler alert: I almost NEVER apply makeup abroad.** I find myself almost more comfortable bare faced than at home aka work (Because work is 40 hours a week). On that one occasion where it is needed, (Like when I went on a date with a stranger in Australia…Oops) I make sure I have the essentials just incase.

Besides those one-off dates that spontaneously happen, I mostly limit the makeup because you would be surprised how much of one thing you can use for multiple areas of the face! The best part about these products you might wonder? They didn’t break the bank and can all fit in one small bag.
