There are a number of things that can go wrong while bringing your trusty makeup or beauty products while on a trip: you could be spending precious hours getting spilled liquid foundation out of your bag, squeezing moisturizer into tiny travel-size containers while at airport security, or dealing with lipstick or mascara that has dried out from extreme temperatures.
Not to worry, as we’ve got you covered on travel-friendly makeup products so you won’t have to miss out on taking those scenic Instagram shots.

You’ll save lots of room in your handbag!
