You want to look good at any time, but it's not always possible due to conditions and circumstances. So applying makeup on the road seems like a rather difficult task.

However, makeup artists say that if you pack a travel cosmetics kit correctly, you will not overload your bag and will always have the necessary makeup products at hand. OBOZ.UA has studied the tips of professionals.

What to put in a makeup bag for makeup on the road

The main rule is that all products should be compact, easy to use, and versatile. It is also recommended to buy a special travel makeup tool kit. It should include at least eyeshadow and blush brushes, a makeup sponge, and a small folding mirror.

Here's what professionals recommend putting in your makeup kit when you go on a trip:

  • moisturizer;
  • long-lasting foundation;
  • concealer;
  • a universal lip and cheek coloring product;
  • neutral eyeshadow palette;
  • long-lasting mascara;
  • eyeliner;
  • setting powder.

It's also a good idea to have some blotting paper, a few cotton swabs, and a makeup setting spray on hand. They will be especially useful if you are traveling to hot countries.

How to choose colors for a travel makeup bag

The first tip for those who are packing a makeup bag for a trip is to choose the most versatile and neutral colors of products. It's unlikely that you'll need your favorite red lipstick if you're going outdoors, but you should have a moisturizer on hand in such conditions.

Another product that can help you out in the tropics is a green concealer. It will quickly hide any redness on the skin, be it mosquito bites or sunburn. An orange product will help fight dark circles around the eyes if you plan to lead a busy nightlife and attend parties.

If you want to have products for creating day and evening looks, take two lipsticks with you. A nude lipstick will come in handy during the day, and a universal red lipstick will be useful in the evening. As for the eyeshadow, choose a palette where the colors are duplicated in matte and shimmering products. Neutral matte shades are easy to use for daytime makeup, and if you replace or supplement them with shimmer, you will get a party makeup.

What products will be the most durable

Be sure to consider the climate you are traveling to. This determines the choice of products for your travel makeup bag. For example, if you find yourself in a hot and humid environment, you can't do without waterproof mascara and dry powder that will absorb excess moisture. But in the dry desert air, you will need a setting spray with a moisturizing effect.
