Travel-Size Versions of Beauty Classics for Your Holiday GetawaySlideshow Mode
Take the #1 setting spray on Influenster with you wherever your holiday travels take you. Urban Decay's classic spray comes in a TSA-approved one-ounce spray bottle for only $15. Good news: you'll never have to worry about your makeup lasting through your mother's sweat-inducing inquisitions ever again!
Since you'll likely be spending some time catching up with family and likely lounging a lot, you'll want a natural, no-fuss makeup look. Laura Mercier's Tinted Moisturizer is a simple solution that adds just enough color to keep you looking fresh-faced and glowing, but it will take up max five minutes of your precious family time to apply. And at one ounce for $24, this is another TSA must.
Because it is getting chilly, you might want to make sure you're stocked up on some moisturizer in case borrowing your mom's thick and heavy cream that you swear has been in her vanity since you were a kid just isn't gonna cut it. A classic like Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream is a good option and it comes in a beauty bag-ready size of 0.95 ounces for $16.
If your trip will consist of days worth of eating and the occasional stressful family encounter (it happens to us all), breakouts are sure to pop up over your vacay. But keep them at bay with this travel-size version of Erno Laszlo's double cleansing kit. At $28 for both the mini bar and cleansing oil, you'll be able to pack a mini spa even if you're only allotted a carryon.
Everyone can use a little pick-me-up from time to time. And if that time just happens to be in the middle of your extended family asking too many personal questions, so be it. Caudalie's Beauty Elixir is a tried-and-true face mist and skin pleaser that comes in a totable one-ounce version of the classic that's much more affordable at $18.
Even if you plan on keeping the makeup at a minimum, a little mascara never hurt anyone. MJ gets the mini makeover with a pocket-sized version of its volumizing mascara. For only $14, you can take some luxury with you this season, because when you're sleeping in your childhood twin bed, you need all the fancy things you can get!
Another Influenster favorite gets a teeny tiny makeover. BECCA's award-winning Shimmering Skin Perfectors now come in a bitty compact that scarcely larger than a pebble. Even if you're not planning on leaving the couch for days on end, you can still keep that glow game going for only $19.
Don't plan on washing your hair much between your plans to move from the couch to the dining table? No problem. Fake that just-washed hair with bumble's tried-and-true dry shampoo. The Tres Invisible Dry Shampoo Mini is only $14 and can help keep oil and grime out of sight. Now, if only it could keep that second bag of Chex Party Mix out of sight as well...
Just because you're at home and away from your usual arsenal of goodies doesn't mean you have to give up some of your favorite indulgences. A conditioning hair treatment can be a great way to escape when family time just gets a bit too much. And it's an ideal way to feel relaxed and refreshed after indulging on all that yummy T-giving food. Briogeo's classic mask now comes in a travel-approved one-ounce size for just the occasion.
Not quite ready to give up a full routine for travel? You don't have to with Ole Henriksen's three-piece kit of the brand's skincare classics: the Truth Serum, the Sheer Transformation Perfecting Moisturizer, and the Invigorating Night Transformation Gel. At $25 for the whole kit, it's one of the better bang-for-your-buck options!
