Travel Essentials – Makeup & Skincare Edition

I know how hard it is to pack for a trip. You are trying to not overpack but also you still need your essentials. When it comes to vacations, I try not to wear a lot of makeup. Especially if I’m going somewhere warm, minimal makeup is the way to go.

I also bring products with me that I can use and apply with my fingers because I don’t like to take a lot of brushes with me. So cream products are the best for that. They are multi-tasking and you can apply and blend with just using your fingers. They also look natural on the skin and can’t break as easy as powders.

I’m currently in Miami Beach so I figured, I’ll show you what I brought with me when it comes to makeup and skincare:

When it comes to skincare, I take as many minis as I can. I simplify my skincare routine because otherwise I would probably need a separate bag for my skincare only. Sephora point perks are a good way to stock up on minis. They also always have some promos with codes that you can use to get good size skincare products.

  • dermalogica Precleanse Balm (this is the only full size product I brought with me but it conveniently comes in a squeeze tube. The balm to oil cleanser removes all my makeup and doesn’t strip the skin but also doesn’t leave it greasy)
  • Bioderma Micellar Water (the travel sizes are amazing and don’t take a lot of space. I use this as a second step in my cleansing routine just to make sure I got everything off)
  • Tata Harper Rejuvenating Serum (an anti-aging serum that is pretty new to me so I’ll report back with how I like it)
  • Tatcha The Water Cream (I’ve mentioned this moisturizer a bunch of times on my IG. It’s one of my favorite moisturizer and great if you have normal to oily skin)
  • Charlotte Tilbury The Magic Cream (if I need the extra moisture, I reach for this luxurious cream. This also doubles as a good primer if you have normal to dry skin)
  • Drunk Elephant Virgin Marula Luxury Face Oil ( I always bring a face oil with me just in case I need extra moisture to layer over my moisturizer. This one is moisturizing but also soothes the skin)
  • Kate Somerville Goat Milk De-Puffing Eye Balm (an eye balm that is both moisturizing and cooling on the skin)
  • Tatcha Violet C-Radiance Mask (a great brightening mask that leaves my skin soft and glowy)
  • Tata Harper Clarifying Mask (just in case I need some deep cleansing. Since I’ll be using a lot of SPF, I like to use a cleansing mask to make sure my pores don’t get clogged)
  • Eve Lom Rescue Mask (it’s a clay mask that it’s also good for cleansing. I haven’t used this one yet but I found a good sample size in my stash so I figured it will come in handy on my trip)

These are all the beauty products I took with me. I do have some body products that I didn’t include in this post like my body SPF and my Bum Bum cream.

I know it looks like a lot of products but I swear to you, it’s not. Since most of my skincare are minis, they hardly take up any space. As for the makeup, I tried to stick with essentials. I only took three brushes and didn’t go crazy with the lip products which I usually do.

What are your travel essentials when it comes to beauty products? Do you take a lot or you stick with the basics?
