If you’re a traveling co-ed, you know that having a comfy outfit for the plane is incredibly important, and so is packing light. But what about your makeup? Motives Cosmetics’ savvy Lauren Maker dishes to College Lifestyles the best makeup bring on your travels.
Is your carry-on the best place to stash your makeup?
“Yes,” Maker said. “If you check your luggage, you don’t know how it’s being treated.” Suitcases can get tossed around as they make their way through the check line, causing makeup to break. Once on the plane the environment can damage your makeup, liquid kinds in particular. So put it in your carry-on and travel worry-free.
What is the easiest way to get your makeup to fit TSA regulation sizes?
Most lip glosses and liquid foundations are under 3 oz. and “shouldn’t be difficult to fit in a little bag,” Maker said. Always make sure to double check. Some drug stores sell kits that allow you to measure products out into 3 oz. containers.
Should you wear makeup on longer flights?
“You can unless you have itchy eyes or touch your face a lot,” Maker said. She highly encourages washing your face after the flight as the environment could dry out your skin.
Since packing light is super economic, what are some makeup items we can leave at home? What are makeup items we should definitely bring?
“Depends on what type of trip it is,” Maker said. Traveling for business? Leave the eyeliner at home. Heading to the beach? Ditch the liquid foundation and grab the powder instead. But always bring Maker’s favorite beauty tool: mascara.
Is it OK to buy makeup abroad?
“Most makeup manufactures ship oversees,” said Maker, which means you should be able to find your product in a foreign country. However, Maker warned, “Check for allergies.”
