Best Multi-Use Beauty Products for Travel

Luggage space and weight are precious when traveling--I'd know this, as I had to pay about $100 in overweight fees when coming home from France last year. (Note to self: just buy a second suitcase while in France.) So when I saw this article on the Birchbox website, I knew I had to do a spin-off featuring my favorites! While I do plan on packing most of my makeup (I'll be gone for almost a year, after all), here are my favorites for shorter trips that are double--or even triple--duty.


(Oh, and special shoutout to my real-life best friend, Lydia, for basically teaching me how to do these cool graphics. Check her out at Down and Out In Sephora!)

Stainiac is a combination lip/cheek stain, so you only need this one little tube to replace your lipstick and blush!


Body sunscreen, face sunscreen, and face makeup? No thanks. I use Dr. Jart+ Black Label Detox BB Beauty Balm instead of sunscreen on my face most days. It goes on evenly, matches any and every skin type, and has SPF 25.


For your eyes, who cares about eyeshadow? It's all about the eyeliner and mascara. Get an all-in-one mascara/eyeliner duo like this Cherimoya 2 Timer Mascara & Eyeliner ($2.89) and save half the space.


Egyptian Magic is, well, magic. I use it on my face, my chapped lips, my cuticles, my hair, my eczema spots...you get the drill. Pack this and forgo the bulky lotions, hair products that tame flyaways, and easy-to-lose lip balms. (That was the link to the two-ounce version, but you can also get the four-ounce version here.


As an added bonus, all of these products are (or have versions that are) under three fluid ounces (the maximum for liquid carry-on items), so you can take them literally everywhere and anywhere in the world. And remember, travel and sample toiletries are the best when it comes to shampoo, toothpaste, and all those other fun products. ;) Bon voyage!

  2. I always go for the double duty with sunscreen. I don't bother with sunscreen for my face because I always buy moisturizer or BB cream or foundation with SPF in it already!
