Top 5 beauty travel hacks: whether on the road or in the skies

Travelling and packing can be stressful at the best of times. Perhaps you’re trying to take up less room in the car, or maybe trying to make the luggage weight limit. Lugging around all the beauty products seems a little impractical and just cumbersome. 

So, how do you cut back on some of the volume and start to pack compact (but still keep your looks fresh)?

Eyelash and eyebrow tint

Leave the brow kit and even the mascara at home, you won’t need it! A quick visit to your local lash technician to get an eyelash and eyebrow tint will mean that you don’t even need the basics. The tint will leave your brows and lashes looking on point all day and into the night, even if you take a dip in the ocean or pool — winning!

Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo doesn’t take the place of regular shampoo, but it does mean you only have to bring your travel sized bottle. And, it’s not only a space-saver, it’s a timesaver. Who wants to spend time washing, drying and styling your hair when you could be out there exploring! Spritz your hair and be on your way, fabulous self and all.

Tinted moisturiser with SPF

How to combine foundation, moisturiser and face sunscreen? Tinted moisturiser, of course! Not to be a total substitute for sunscreen, remember to always slip, slop, slap with that SPF50+. But, keep fresh and save room with tinted moisturiser.


You don’t want to bring a big perfume with you, nor a big hand cream. Pop into your local Myers, DJs, or even the airport duty-free. Get your hand creams, your perfumes, some moisturiser even. Take those little sachets of love and you won’t need to squeeze them in, they pop perfectly in your purse.

Bring one lipstick

Need a day to night time look in a flash? You don’t need all the bells and whistles of a smokey eye. A bright lip colour can make any look fabulous and will save the room of taking your whole eyekit with you.
