Despite having an arsenal of beauty products, I tend to pack really lightly when I travel. I choose carefully which ones I want to bring with me and tend to ask myself: does this serve at least two functions, will it last an entire day with one application, can I achieve two different looks with this palette, is it compact, etc. What I choose to pack always, is: my set of Sigma brushes, this long-lasting liquid liner from Ardency Inn, and some reliable Fatboy putty hair paste from Urban Outfitters.

My favorite of the Sigma brushes is their 3DHD kabuki brush. Normally kabuki brushes are associated with all-over face application, and while I do use it to apply face powder, I've found that this brush, angled a certain way, can also be used as an effective contour brush. And if you angle the brush more carefully, you might even have a third use for it and utilize it for highlighting. On short trips where I spend 1-2 nights away, I'll first use the brush for face powder (MakeUpForEver's is long-lasting and light), and then apply highlighter (here: Hourglass 'Ambient' lighting palette) on one side of the angled brush, and then bronzer (love Urban Decay's Naked Flush in 'Strip') on the other side.

I'm also in love with Ardency Inn's Modster Easy Ride Supercharged Liquid eyeliner - it really does stay on all day and probably has the best tip for smoothly applying a mean cat-eye. It's perfect for long-flights, festivals, and an on-the-go lifestyle in general. Another one of my favorite products is this Fatboy putty - a little bit of this goop will tousle up the hair for that undone look, and leave it with a matte finish. What I love most about it though, is that I can also use it to dab over my eyebrows and lock the brows and brow powder in place. At home, I use Eyeko's tinted eyebrow gel to keep it in place but when I travel, I take Fatboy's to save on space with its dual function.

Love that I can get most of my versatile beauty products for travel all from Urban Outfitters. Shop below for some of my other multi-use favorites:
