Alright, so you’re jaunting off to Paris on your spring break abroad. Problem is, if you’re flying on a plane you only get 100 mL of liquid. I’m going to share some of my tips for looking cute (if you’re into that sort of thing) with limited space to store everything. readysetgo:
That’s not a lot of space for your liquids. So, to combat this we are going to multitask with some 2-in-1 products. But first, the essentials. You really can’t get by without lotion for your face and toothpaste, but there are other ways to cut the corners.
Introducing Olay All Day Complete Moisutrizer….WITH SPF 15! This is a cult favorite, so chances are you have heard about it before. This works as a great moisturizer to make sure your face doesn’t dry out and it also acts as a sunscreen. I’m kind of obsessed with making sure my skin is protected with SPF and I think this does a pretty great job. You can also use it at night for a little extra moisture as well. It’s only$5.99, definitely affordable. Find it here. (A little goes a long way so a travel size would get the job done)
Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream. So a BB cream is kind of like an all in one product. I use it to cover up some uneven parts of my skin and it also conceals blemishes pretty well. I apply it all over my face, and I think it gives me a nice glow. Make sure to get the right shade for your skin tone! Another bonus, it also has SPF. 🙂 Find it over here. It ranges in price from $12-$14 depending on where you go. Unfortunately it does not come in a travel size, but it’s a liberty you’ll have to take.
Nars “The Multiple” So this actually isn’t a liquid, what a bonus. The Multiple is another cult favorite. It acts as a cream blush, you can use it on your lips for a little color and it just adds glow in general. You can also use it as eyeshadow! There are tons of shades available so if peachy pink shimmer isn’t your jam, then that’s just fine. It also blends SUPER well and is fairly lightweight so when you are gallivanting across foreign countries it will hold up. It’s a bit more expensive at $39, but again, I wouldn’t include it on this list if I didn’t think it was worth it. Find it here.
Organix Argan Oil. I use this right after I shower on my hair to add a little bit of texture, and I also use it on second day hair to tame flyaways. I have curls and I don’t brush them, so I find dry shampoo kind of hard to work with. It’s also just kind of weird. I like it a lot, and apparently oil on your hair can only do good things. They definitely have travel size quantities, so look for that. It’s about $5-$8 depending on where you go. Find it online here.
Benefit “They’re Real!” Mini Mascara. This is a fan favorite as well. It volumizes your lashes, thickens them, and it has many other benefits. (Get it). This is a mini size for only $10! I try not to mess a lot with my eye makeup while traveling so I would usually use mascara, and just line my eyes with a pencil. Easy as pie. Find it over here.
Other tips for saving space include travel size EVERYTHING. Get that mini toothpaste and empty travel bottles. Also, don’t forget deodorant. 🙂
