Travel Beauty Must-Haves - The Hardworking MVP's

Traveling, in general, can oftentimes be very stressful. While you’re staying on top of things trying to figure out lodging, transportation while making sure everything’s on schedule and on time…you also have to pack your life into 1 or 2 bags.

After you’re done packing your bag(s), you then have to make sure you properly pack your in-flight essentials as well for a comfortable flight because no one likes waking up with dry, irritated skin. The recurring question always is: how do you make sure you don’t overpack and stay within the TSA weight limit?

Layer that packing stress on top of a long international flight, and you better be sure that you’re strictly packing your beauty MVP’s only. Because NOTHING is worse than carrying the weight of something you didn’t really need.

As you know, I’m the type of person that LOVES washing my face right when I get home and putting on my skincare routine when time permits (ICYMI: check out my updated Holy Grail Skincare Routine here).

When I’m traveling, I make sure to pack only my hardworking beauty essentials that I can rely on to combat the weather and travel stress. With that said, I wanted to share what my beauty heroes were that kept me looking fresh and moisturized while I was in Paris and New York all throughout fashion month.

Beauty From Within

I always carry my Goop Glow Packets with me no matter where I am and have been loving the Beauty Chef’s Inner Beauty Powder as well. These Clé De Peau Eye Masks are great for beating jet lag and helping tired travel eyes out by keeping my undereyes firm and moisturized.

GOOPGLOW Morning Superpowder

These guys are in my bag at any given time. I add a packet to my water every morning as a ritual. It’s clean, effective, and full of vitamins and COENZYMNEQ10 to support cellular energy production.

Clé de Peau Beauté Vitality-Enhancing Eye Mask

I especially love this mask when I’m traveling and right before I catch some zzz’s on the plane. It prevents my eyes from looking dull and combats the dry, airplane air to keep me moisturized.


A true believer that beauty starts within, I add this beauty powder to my teas and water. It helps me get my pre and probiotics in, along with all my vitamins and minerals.

Lately, I’ve really been into a natural, dewy look and these products have really helped me look and feel my best no matter where I am. Whenever my skin started to feel a little dry, I knew I needed an extra boost of hydration and made sure to mix this iS CLINICAL Hydra-Cool Serum into my foundation or concealer which really did the trick. Here’s what was on my face all throughout my travels:

Beauty Bag MVP’s

  • Tom Ford Glow Drops
  • iS CLINICAL Hydra-Cool Serum
  • Hourglass Veil Translucent Setting Powder
  • Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro Lip Stain
  • SUQQU Extra Rich Glow Cream Foundation
  • Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate Glow Stick
  • Hourglass Cosmetics Vanish Airbrush Concealer

Hair Heros

My hair’s super short right now and I added a little wave to it to add more bounce and volume to my normally flat hair. Here’s are the items I brought with me to make sure my hair was on point:

Viboos Hot Air Brush on Amazon, my Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray (truly the best), and my Mason Pearson Brush that I never leave behind as it gives my hair so much volume

Shop Hair Products

Also – don’t forget that traveling will very much dehydrate your skin. Make sure you remember to stay hydrated. Bringing a reusable water bottle like a self-cleaning Larq one is great because you can fill up at any fountain without having to pay for overpriced airport water. It’s also better for the environment as you can eliminate your use of single-use plastic when possible.
