Luggage weight limits would have to be one of the more annoying things you come across while travelling. Sure, it’s not ideal that the plane is far too heavy to take off, but if that’s the price they have to pay for us taking more clothes/makeup that we’ll ever need on that short trip, them’s the breaks.

Whether it be a work trip to Sydney or a trek through Nepal, here’s the necessities to keep you going (glowing)…

Simple Hydrating Light Moisturiser

Now, let’s go in order, starting with the basics. If you consider putting makeup on a dehydrated face, you better say penance to the skin gods. This is an affordable and ideal base for all skin types. Even if you aren’t a makeup girl, nothing beats that dewy, fresh-faced skin.

NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser

The lightest of lightweight foundation/moisturisers, this is perfect for the girl who doesn’t want to wear makeup but doesn’t want to NOT wear makeup. Instantly brightening, and oil-free, the formula is designed to even skin tone and reduce imperfections… while feeling like you’re wearing nothing at all.

Stila Convertible Colour

Cream products are your best friend while travelling because they give a more natural feel and look to the skin. And brushes to go with powders? Ain’t nobody got time for that. Dab a little of this two in one lip and cheek tint and look naturally flushed when you step off the plane.

Estée Lauder Little Black Primer

No more gluggy mascara and no more stabbing yourself in the eye with a formula that needs to be scraped off the eyelid. This primer is unlike others—due to it being black and replicating the look of a real mascara—yet it coats the lashes lightly without looking like you’re heading for a night out.

Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting Contour

I know what you’re thinking, why even take a contouring stick to somewhere like Nepal?!

This little baby can add the most natural swipe of bronze to the face, without looking powdery or caked. Add it around your temples or cheek bones and effortlessly melt it into your skin for an instant sun-kissed glow. You may have been wondering the wintery depths of Nepal for the past few weeks but you’ll look like you just stepped off the plane from St Tropez.
