Every girl likes to primp a little, then why should you not look your best when travelling? You do not have to abandon your beauty routine, just downsize it.👌 Hence, a small makeup bag is a must for every girl who loves to travel. In this post we discuss 10 items that I feel should be a part of every woman’s makeup bag!
Here’s my list of my make-up must haves, when I am travelling:
1. Face Wash
You need to start with a neat and clean canvas before you apply any makeup, so face wash is a must have. I use the Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Cleanser which helps remove dead cells for fresher, healthier-looking skin. Suitable for normal-to-oily skin, it also comes in a small travel size package.

It is very important to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays, which can lead to early skin ageing! Regardless of your destination or month of travel – this beauty product must not be skipped at any cost. My go-to essential to beat the sun is Lakmé Sun Expert Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30. Non sticky, light weight and with 12 hour protection, this sunscreen is perfect for hot Indian weather. Suitable for all skin types.
3. CC Cream
This is the most helpful beauty product, when you’re cutting down the essentials you’ll take on vacation. The best of both worlds, Lakmé 9 to 5 CC Cream combines the goodness of your daily skin cream with just the right touch of make-up to give you that perfect look in a few minutes. With a dewy finish, this gets absorbed nicely into the skin and it has an SPF of 30 PA++. Available in two shades: Beige and Bronze.
It is a must have product for any trip, as it helps the makeup stay longer. I have been using Lakme Perfect Radiance Compact for years now. It comes with SPF 23 UVA & UVB protection, goodness of multi-minerals and Vitamin B3. It is oil free, light weight and adds a pearly glow to your skin. Available in 6 different shades.
To instantly add glamour & definition to your eyes – Kajal is a must have. I swear by the Maybelline Colossal Kajal, which stays up to 24 hours without smudging. Can be safely used on the upper lash line as well as waterline. You can also double this up as a brow pencil to keep those brows defined. It is sleek, travel-friendly and doesn’t need to be sharpened.
I think this is a must have, though some people tend to skip it. If you have small eyes like me, this small item can make your really eyes stand out! It’s an absolute must. I love the Lash Sensational Mascara – Waterproof by Maybelline with its exclusive care serum formula that nourishes lashes. And the revolutionary eye catcher brush that captures lashes corner to corner for a burst of full-bloom lashes.
7. Lip Gloss
Swap your lipstick with a lip-gloss that provides nourishment and adds a flush of colour to your lips! Buttery soft and silky smooth, the Nyx Butter Gloss is my latest crush. Currently using the shade named Cupcake, the range has 12 more sumptuous shades. Each glossy colour delivers sheer to medium coverage that melts onto your lips and is non sticky, leaving your lips soft, supple and kissable.
8. Hair Serum
Do not forget your hair care while travelling! Hair Serum is essential to make sure your hair looks stunning while travelling. No other hair serum suits me except Streax Hair Serum – with Walnut Oil. Just a tiny bit has the ability to transform dry, frizzy, unruly hair into shiny, satin smooth hair, that stays manageable all day. Not only that, it also forms a protective layer on your hair against heat, dust and pollution.
My go to fragrance is Zara Tuberose Eau De Toilette, I use this everyday. With its Floral – Fruity – Spicy scent its a must have on your vacation! It is the kind of fragrance that reminds me of spring season. It stays bright and fresh for 2-3 hours and then lingers on your clothes for the rest of the day. Feminine and Delicious.
10. Facial Wipes
Facial wipes mean zero spillage, they are just perfect for vacations! My favourite Kara Make-Up Removal Facial Wipes are made of 100% viscose that is gentle on your skin and cleans off every trace of makeup and dirt. While lavender and seaweed help nourish and moisturise the skin. Also as they’re biodegradable, you don’t have to worry about waste. At ₹ 170 for 30 pulls, there’s no better deal on the market.
