Whether it’s for business or pleasure, traveling can be an exciting experience. However, as it takes you away from your beloved vanity set, packing a beauty kit that caters to all your needs can be a daunting task. Not only do you have to worry about whether you’ve brought all the items you’ll need, but you have to consider shape, size, and weight to ensure that it’s compact and comprehensive.
With an estimated 32 million single women traveling at least once in the last year, and a third of that more than five times, according to the Travel Industry Association, packing right is becoming vital and as women, beauty products are a big part of that. So how do we build the perfect travel beauty kit? Try following these three steps so you don’t forget anything on your next trip.
Start With The Perfect Travel Beauty Bag
Packing your products in the right bag is the best for you to ensure you include as many items as possible, as well as ensuring your own convenience. There’s nothing worse than having to leave behind that one product because there was no space, or rummaging through your bag and making a mess just to find an item. Try picking a bag that accommodates for traveling — it should be a good size and include various pockets and sections to make it easy for you to find products.
Whether it’s because of the plane trip, excessive movement or dry heat, traveling makes your skin more susceptible to dryness. Try including body moisturizer, face lotion, hand cream and lip balm in your kit to make sure your skin is always healthy, and try and make sure they’re natural like the G&H collection by Amway, as this will be lighter on the skin.
- BB cream
BB cream is great for traveling as it combines three essentials — moisturizer, sunscreen, and foundation. What a great way to save space in your luggage.
- Face Wash
With the change in environment from traveling, your skin can suffer. Fight against impurities and stay refreshed with a trusty daily face wash.
This is a must in your travel kit, as you never know where your day will lead when traveling. G&H by Amway have a great roll-on deodorant that will fit perfectly in your travel kit and protects against impurities, wetness, and odors.

- Tweezers and Nail Kit
Commonly forgotten, tweezers and a nail kit are a must for any women, especially if you’re traveling for business. You can take care of your eyebrows, face, fingers, and toes by packing these two essentials.
- Essential Makeup Item
Everyone has one or two makeup items that they can’t live without. Depending on your style and complexion, this could be eyeliner, mascara, concealer or anything else so don’t forget it for your trip.
Add a Couple Non-Essentials
- Non-Essential Make-Up Items
You already have your foundation or BB cream and the one or two makeup items as your essentials for everyday use. If you have space, add those couple of extra things like eyeshadow, blush or even nude lipstick if you feel like you may use it on a special night out.
With long days working or exploring a new place, smelling good is important for anyone. Make sure the perfume is in travel size bottles and only pack it in your carry on to avoid getting it thrown out at security.
Ensuring you pack all your beauty needs can be a difficult task when traveling. Follow this guide to building your essential beauty kit and never forget something on a trip again.
