8 TSA-Friendly Beauty Products to Pack in Your Carry On
You’ve booked your getaway. Now pack like a pro and look fab despite the heat with these warm-weather, travel-size picks.
Don't worry about funneling your go-to beauty products into TSA-friendly containers. Grab a few of these travel guru-approved minis and use the extra space in your suitcase to pack that cute new outfit instead. Hitha Palepu, author of How to Pack: Travel Smart for Any Trip, shares her best advice for looking great on the go.
First things first: Plan ahead. Assess your kit one week before your trip, Hitha says. That gives you time to restock staples and pick up any summer-friendly additions. When you're ready to pack, protect clothes in your suitcase from leaks by separating liquids in a zippered plastic bag (try H&M's transparent makeup bag, for $9.99). Stow solids in a different pouch. “You can also pack single servings of products in a clean contact lens case,” Hitha says.
1. Mattifying Primer
If the thought of leaving your trusty foundation at home gives you pause, consider a hardworking primer. This translucent cream formula masks pores and shine.
2. Multipurpose Hydrator
3. Stay-Put Liner
An ultra-thin felt tip and quick dry time set you up for application success. It's also water-and smudge-proof (translation: it'll handle the humidity).
4. Frizz Control for Any Style
Good hair days can happen on vacation, especially with one of these easy travel-friendly hairstyles. Ensure every strand stays in place with a firm-yet-flexible spritz of this aerosol hairspray.
5. Downsized Deodorant
Between lounging by the pool, sightseeing, and exploring shops and restaurants, opportunities to pop up to the hotel room and freshen up can be few and far between. This discrete, portable deodorant can tag along in a purse or swim bag for on-the-go application.

7. Two-in-One Lip and Cheek Color
Give your powder blush and signature lipstick a vacation and grab this plumping, hydrating glow stick for your face and lips instead. The creamy, buildable formula will create a sunkissed look, with no rays required.
8. Versatile Eye Palette
Each credit-card-size package includes six flattering shades that can be mixed and matched from day to night. A hint of shimmer means these colors will dazzle in the summer sun.
