It’s a Makeup Wars Monday! This time I’m sharing my cruelty free Favorite Travel Beauty Products. I usually feel like I pack too many beauty products, but it’s because it’s so hard for me to narrow things down! I don’t want to forget something that I’ll need.
Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette
I still think this is one of the best palettes you can get. It’s so useful. You can dress it up with bright or sparkly shades or use it for simple looks. 6 shades – 1 demi-matte and 5 matte . It’s a steal for the price!
Urban Decay Build Your Own Palette
I have the 6 pan Build Your Own, as well as a few 4 pans and I love these for travel. I typically take Cobra (black with gold iridescence, vegan), Pistol (greyish brown), Half-Baked (golden bronze, vegan), Vanilla (iridescent white gold) Verve (light grey pearl), and Haight (mermaid blue, vegan). Sometimes Aura (iridescent pink and iridescent blue) from the Oz palette makes an appearance.
Sugarpill Acidberry, Darling and Magentric
I need brights to come with me, so I typically bring these Sugarpill shades. Acidberry is lime green, Darling is a gorgeous bright teal blue, and Magentric is a deep magenta. Vegan.
Cover FX Anti-Age Smoothing Eye Primer
This stuff is awesome. It’s a white-based eyeshadow primer that lasts all day. It gives you true to color results with eyeshadow. Vegan.
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
This is my all time favorite mascara. It’s gotta be by my side. See my review.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Mini-Duo Angled Spooly 7 Brush
I actually own 2 of these because I forgot one on my trip to Chicago and could not live without it. It makes it easy to fill in my brows and groom them. Vegan.
What foundation and primer I take depends upon how my skin is acting at the time.
Too Faced Primed & Poreless Skin Smoothing Face Primer
This is a great primer from Too Faced. Right now I’ve got normal to dry skin on the cheeks and under the eyes, and I feel like my pores look huge, so I want something that will minimize the appearance of pores and help my foundation stay in place, rather than slide around. This does a great job. Vegan.
Cover FX CC Cream Time Release Tinted Treatment SPF 30
I adore this CC Cream and it does well with my finicky skin. Check out the neat shade finder at Cover FX’s website to find your perfect match. See my review. Vegan.
Silk Naturals Flattery Illuminating Powder
I really love this powder. It does a great job helping to lock in my foundation and give me a good glow. Vegan.
NARS Adult Content Cheek Palette
This palette is PERFECT for travel! You can use each shade individually or mix them for your perfect shade. It gives you cool, neutral, or warm blush options. LE, hard to find now.
It Cosmetics Vitality Face Disc
Since the NARS is hard to find, I wanted to recommend an alternative cheek product for you. This Face Disk is nice. It’s got a matte bronzer to contour, a highlighter and a gorgeous blush shade.
Lips are going to change with the season and my mood, but here’s what I’d pack to take with me right now.
Bite Beauty Cashmere Lip Cream
I just purchased Moscato (bright pink) and Napa (deep cotton candy pink), as both are really flattering on my skintone. They’re comfortable to wear and very pretty. Napa is perfect for a demure lip, while Moscato is great for a bold.
Supergoop! SPF 30+ UVA/UVB MintFusion Lip Balm
This really is my favorite lip balm and I use it multiple times a day. I love the fact that it has spf and shea butter. I use it at night too, when I travel.
Paula’s Choice Moisture Boost Cream
I just started using this under my eyes during the day. It gives my skin the extra moisture that it craves. I also use it as an eye cream at night and to add additional moisture to my face at night. Vegan.
Paula’s Choice RESIST Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator
I prefer this night cream – without the retinol – because I can’t use retinol all the time. It still has great anti-aging benefits. Vegan.
I typically decant the following products and take them in travel size containers with me.
Phyrra’s Pretty Little Elixir Vegan Hair Masque
Since I wash my hair once a week, I usually use a masque instead of a conditioner. Of course I’m going to use my Pretty Little Elixir. It’s cruelty free, gluten free, sulfate free, paraben free and vegan.
