Mini Makeup Products That Are Perfect For Summer Travels



After two years of little to no travel, we’re finally getting the chance to #catchflightsnotfeelings, and needless to say, the vacay vibes are palpable worldwide. Part of the excitement of jetting off for a week of sunshine (with SPF obvs) and sunsets is packing up your beauty bag AND the excuse of supplying it with travel-sized beauty products – they’re just so adorable! So, we’re rounding up some of our must-haves to inspire you.

For Day To Night Lashes: Huda Beauty Legit Lashes Dual-Ended Mascara Mini, $15


We’re so excited that our fave mascara is now available in a super cute mini size. Just like the OG, you get two full-sized mascara wands to deliver that same insane amount of volume and curl. It’s also great for travel as it can take you from a fluttery daytime lash to a full glam feel when you combine and layer.

For Juicy Lips On The Go: Fenty Beauty O.G. + Heat Mini Gloss Bomb + Gloss Bomb Heat Duo, $24

This Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb duo is next-level cute. The mini-set includes two of the award-winning Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer and the plumping Gloss Bomb Heat, both in their iconic universal rose nude shade, Fenty Glow.

For Soft, Smooth Skin: WISHFUL Get Even Rose Oil Mini, $25


If there’s one product we couldn’t live without, it’s the Get Even Rose Oil, so rest assured we always have one stashed in our travel bag. We actually refer to it as our magic oil as it plumps, evens, and nourishes our skin like nothing else, thanks to its rich combination of 15 essential oils. It’s also amazing at soothing any inflammation caused by travel or, if you ever get sunburnt, it’s the ultimate skin soother – although that doesn’t mean you should ever skip sunscreen!

To Set Your Summer Beat: Urban Decay Mini All Nighter Ultra Matte Setting Spray, $15

If you want your beat to last from morning to night, this is a no-brainer. The vegan weightless spray will lock your look in place for 16 hours with a matte finish. In fact, it’s infused with kaolin clay to reduce oil and shine, making it a no-brainer for anyone with oily skin.

For Glossy Holiday Locks: Hask Argan Oil Repairing Shine Oil, $6

Applying hair oil to your locks is the easiest way to keep your hair shiny AF when you’re on vacation. The HASK Argan Oil Repairing Shine Oil Vial, $3, is packed with argan oil, grapeseed oil, and keratin amino acids to strengthen and protect the hair follicle. It’s so tiny you can keep it in your purse to tame your hair on the go. We like to rub two to three drops between our hands, focus on the ends of our hair, then smooth any leftover oil on our palms around the mid-lengths and top of our hair.

WISHFUL Yo Glow Tropical Fruits Enzyme Scrub, $15

In case you haven’t heard, we just added a new honey-scented sister to our Yo Glow collection. Introducing WISHFUL Yo Glow Tropical Fruits Enzyme Scrub, $21, featuring a new delicious scent of tropical fruits, all wrapped up in special-edition packaging! Not only does it leave your skin with the most irresistible glow, but it’ll gently buff away dead skin cells creating the smoothest canvas for makeup application. The mini 40ml size is perfect for taking away with you without bulking up your bag.

For Eyeshadow On-The-Go: Huda Beauty Mini Matte & Metal Melted Shadows, $16


We’ll be real: as much as we love eyeshadow palettes, they’re not always ideal for travel. The easiest solution? Our Mini Matte & Metal Melted Shadows, each cute mini combo offers two rich and velvety matte shades and a blinding metallic shade. Not only are they super easy to use, but as they’re so compact, you can travel with multiple shades so you can create an array of looks. From a matte lid to a halo eye, you can have so much fun experimenting with different vacay looks that you could literally do them while on the go!

For Glowing Holiday Skin: Milk Makeup Mini Watermelon Brightening Serum, $18

Keeping our skin hydrated and glowy is our number one goal, but it requires special attention when traveling as it can get dry from flights and increased sun exposure. This serum is enriched with hydrating watermelon fruit extract, swiss garden cress sprout extract to even skin tone and visibly reduce dark spots, and matrixyl to smooth the appearance of fine lines and skin texture. We also love that the waterless formula helps avoid spillage drama.

For A Flawless Beat: Huda Beauty Easy Bake Loose Setting Powder Mini, $19


With the added heat and humidity that summer brings, setting your beat is essential. Our Easy Bake Loose Powder will lock your look in place, soften the appearance of imperfections and leave your skin looking airbrushed AF. We’re also obsessed with the mini packaging and convenient application puff – it’s SO adorable.

For Laminated Brows: Benefit Mini 24-HR Brow Setter Clear Eyebrow Gel, $14

Fluffy feathered brows are the hottest brow look this summer, and this strong-hold gel allows to fake laminated brows in seconds. The clear formula will groom and tame your brow hairs with the dual-sided wand, which coats hair from root to tip with its flake-free gel that dries quickly and never feels sticky.

The Ultimate Fragrance Combo: KAYALI VANILLA | 28 & MUSK | 12 Doublesided Travel Rollerball, $25


Did you know that carrying your fragrance in your purse or luggage can alter and impact the longevity of the scent? That’s why we created our Doublesided Travel Rollerball to keep your fragrance smelling delicious when you’re on the move. Plus, as there are two fragrances, it allows you to mix, match and layer depending on your mood. The first scent is our best-selling VANILLA | 28 with rich gourmand notes of vanilla orchid, brown sugar, and amber woods, and the second is our MUSK | 12 with creamy notes of sandalwood, freesia, and sheer jasmine. They smell divine alone or layered together, and the mini size is perfect for traveling.

To Rescure Dry Skin: Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre, $16

If your skin typically gets dry when you travel, you need this cream. The innovative formula combines mega-hydrators like shea butter, aloe vera, and squalane, which delivers an omega-rich hit of hydration to increase elasticity in the skin. It also contains beauty-boosting soy proteins, vitamin E, and fatty acids to strengthen the skin barrier to maintain the optimal pH level and prevent future moisture loss. This mini size will fit snugly in your wash bag!
