My Travel Makeup Essentials

For makeup lovers, choosing just a few items to carry during your travel, can seem like a daunting task. To find a way around this, I try to keep my look pretty basic and minimal while I’m traveling. This is predominantly because you hardly have the time for creating a runway-ready look on a trip.

Apart from these, here are a few other essentials that come in handy while traveling:

  • Tissues
  • Facial Wipes
  • Hand Sanitizer

  • Lip balm
  • Face Wash
