If you think you can globe-trot around with your supersized liquid foundation, or your entire makeup collection down to the last particle of glitter, think again. When you’re travelling, size and quantity matter. Only the essentials should be taken so they can be zipped, locked and sealed to compactly fit into your weekend bag. Thankfully, Urban Decay has a collection of travel-friendly makeup products you won’t have to leave behind. Here are the must haves.
Mascara and Eyeliner
For packing purposes, products that come in combos are a gem for your travel bag. The 24/7 Troublemaker Mascara and Eyeliner Duo includes a mascara with a spiked bristled applicator and a glide-on eyeliner in classic black. With its compact, bad-girl-glam iridescent packaging, it’ll fit comfortably in even a petite toiletry bag.
Travel makeup is better with power packs like the . These sprays eliminate the need to pack multiple primers, setting sprays and powders. The pack contains the Quick Fix Hydra-Charged Complexion Prep Priming Spray, applied before your makeup, and the All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray to hold everything in place, even in hot-climate destinations.
The popular Naked Heat Palette you’d never go anywhere without comes in a Naked Petite Heat Palette that fits neatly into your bag. This little palette is ideal for travel because of the finishes available that enable you to switch things up according to destination, the weather and your skin type. It includes shimmer, matte and demi-matte eyeshadow, along with a highlighter.
The travel-sized Naked Skin Concealer is a full coverage concealer that’s powerful enough for you to leave your foundation at home. It does the double duty of concealing discolouration and blemishes, while providing full-face coverage. Its weightlessness comes in handy when you’re on the beach or spending time in humid vacation spots.
Makeup brushes, eyelash curlers and eyebrow spoolies are delicate instruments that need special care when travelling. Leaving them randomly thrown and scattered within your makeup bag can damage their quality. That’s why there’s nothing better than the nifty bottle-shaped Urban Tool Carryall. This zipping circular bag keeps things compact when space is at a premium and will keep your tools in perfect condition from one destination to the next.
Whether you’re relaxing on a weekend away or partying all night in a new city, Urban Decay has your back. Your favourite makeup looks are still possible, and your vacation selfies will be flawless.
