Deciding which makeup to bring along for a trip is arguably one of the hardest things to do. A lipstick-hoarding, eyeshadow-collecting, highlighter-obsessed beauty fanatic like myself treats narrowing down makeup like a science project; It's really that serious. Solving a major beauty conundrum, mini makeup palettes perfect for traveling help streamline your vacation routine and keep your packing light.
Figuring out which of your beauty must-haves will make the cut is like trying to pick a favorite child; It's just not possible! Shoving your entire stash into your luggage isn't really an option either (been there, done that!), especially when you're working with limited storage. If you're a true beauty fanatic, chances are you'll never master the art of packing makeup for traveling when everything you own feels like an essential. It may sting a little, but sacrificing a few favorites for travel-sized beauty products is your best bet at keeping your sanity.
Sure, mini palettes can't truly replace your go-tos, but they can ease packing woes. Compact and often as real deal as their big sister palettes, makeup minis come equipped with versatile shades that'll last all vacation long. Whether you're prepping for a getaway or simply a makeup-on-the-go kind of gal, these 17 travel-friendly palettes will help you nail beautiful looks.
