1. Fenty Beauty By Rihanna Match Stix Trio

Pop star Rihanna changed the makeup game in 2017 when she introduced her Fenty Beauty line with 40 diverse foundation shades to flatter all skin tones. If you haven’t tried any of her products, check out the Match Stix Trio. The pre-bundled set consists of long-wear concealer, contour, and highlight sticks that click together via a magnet, making it easy for travel. They’re also foolproof for blending and building layers, so you can have a fresh or filled-in face with just a few swipes.

2. Milk Makeup Cooling Water

Puffy eyes are part of the travel experience, thanks to dry airplane air, a lack of sleep, and a steady diet of restaurant food. That’s where Milk Makeup Cooling Water comes in. Made with caffeine and natural sea minerals, the portable gel stick is designed for easy swiping under the eyes. Expect an instant decrease in puffiness, inflammation, and redness. It can also be used to cool down pulse points and as a primer under concealer. It’s like a cool night’s sleep in a bottle.

Lipstick that stays put, provides a vibrant matte color, and moisturizes with vitamin E? We’ll take two, please. And that’s exactly what you get with NARS Velvet Matte Lipstick Pencil Duo, two incredible mini-lipsticks for less than the price of one. There are three color combinations to choose from. Throw one lipstick in your carry-on bag and the other in your purse, so you’re never without a pop of color.

The compact hairdryer has a powerful 1,000 watts and includes a miniature airflow concentrator and diffuser.

Sunscreen is a necessity for travel, but liquid and powder products can be messy to pack.
