8 Items for the Perfect Travel Makeup Kit ...

When I travel, I like to pack as compactly as possible, so that I don’t have to drag a heavy suitcase, and can also save space for any purchases made while away. Unfortunately, most of my makeup is not very portable, being in large sets. So I need a small makeup kit. In a previous post, I wrote about some great sets, but now I’m going to suggest some items if you prefer to build your own kit.

1. Laura Mercier Eye Palette

Price: $28 at shop.nordstrom.com
This is a very compact compact! It’s so slimline that it will take up no space at all in your makeup bag. There is a choice of warm and cool colours; I prefer the cool set, as I think the colours are more versatile for day and night makeup.
