I always somehow travel a few times a month, therefore, I feel confident saying that I have found the perfect carry-on friendly travel cosmetics bag! I swear by this PVC Leather-Trimmed Case from Anya Hindmarch. Forget about using a random zip-lock bag to transport your liquids through TSA screening – this is the perfect upgrade to make your carry-on travel a bit more chic!
After every trip, I take stock of what travel products I used and what needs to be replaced, so that I can easily restock the cosmetic case to be ready for the next trip. Below you can shop all my go-to travel cosmetics that I always have with me.
I have traveled with this plastic and leather cosmetic case countless times and it is the perfect place to store all my liquids and small products while I travel. The clear plastic makes the bag TSA approved for carry-on travel. I love that the bag has different zippered compartments (one for bottles and larger items) and another for flat items like contacts or wipes.
I mainly try to find mini sizes for most of my cosmetic products (it is just easier if they are already pre-packaged to be small) but when I can’t find a small size I transfer the product into my Cadence containers. The hard shell containers come in a few different sizes and can store a range of items from lotions to pills. I typically use one to store my favorite moisturizer.
I have used this simple gel face cleanser for years and it is just the best! I am so glad that I found a small size (2oz) to use when traveling.
If you wear contacts, I hope you know about Lumify. I swear by these eye drops, they are my all-around favorites. But what is also great is they help to target redness in your eyes!
The amount of times I spill…it is so embarrassing! I have learned the hard way that it is ideal to always have one of these stain removing pens from Tide on hand. (I buy them in bulk!)
I swear by these makeup remover wipes, they are the best of the best! (And yes, I have tried the drug store alternatives – these are better!)
I’ve shared about this product a lot on instagram – it is the perfect multipurpose makeup because it can be either a con clear or foundation, depending on how much you use. And the size is so small and compact, it is perfect to travel with.
(I wear shade Silk)
I bought this Glossier perfume a little bit on a whim when I was at Sephora the other day but I have been really happy with it! It is not the perfume I wear everyday when I am at home (I wear this daily). But I have found this Glossier scent to be perfect for my cosmetic bag.
For long lasting lip color – my go-to is this Chanel lipstick. It is just the best! I discovered it last year and now own it in a few colorways. It is one of the only lipproducts where the color remains pigmented on my lips after a full day of wear.
(I like the hues that are numbered in the 40s – Soft Rose, Light Rose, etc.)
There you have it, my favorite makeup products that I always have with me in my travel cosmetic bag any time I travel! You can find more travel inspiration here and links to all my favorite beauty products here.
