Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - BEAUTY SPOTLIGHT -

When it’s time to travel, stock your cos­met­ics case with only the es­sen­tials, choos­ing low-main­te­nance op­tions, mul­ti­taskers and mi­nis. Many brands of­fer tiny por­ta­ble sizes, or take ad­van­tage of gift-with-pur­chase pro­mo­tions to source travel-size ver­sions of make-up and skin­care sta­ples.TRY: 1. El­iz­a­beth Ar­den Eight Hour Mir­a­cle Hy­drat­ing Mist, $41. Pack this 100ml-size face mist for in­flight spritz­ing. As well as botan­i­cal ex­tracts, it con­tains glyc­erin, which en­sures the mois­ture pen­e­trates rather than evap­o­rates. 2. Mini brush set, $12 from Kmart. Ideal for short stints, mean­ing you won’t have to haul full-size op­tions around. 3. L’Oréal Paris In­fal­li­ble Lip Paint Lac­quer in Gone with the Nude, $24. A bril­liant com­bi­na­tion of dense colour and hy­dra­tion with a shiny fin­ish that doesn’t re­quire pre­ci­sion ap­pli­ca­tion. 4. Palmer’s Co­coa But­ter Mois­tur­is­ing Day Cream, $4. Com­bat dry air­craft air by re-ap­ply­ing a sim­ple mois­turiser in­flight and soon af­ter you land. 5. M.A.C Sized to Go Cleanse Off Oil, $25. A gen­tle make-up re­mover de­signed to smooth over dry skin be­fore rins­ing away. 6. Jane Iredale Pure­gloss Lip Gloss in Hot Cider, $59. The soft shim­mer gives the il­lu­sion of plumper lips and the smooth tex­ture is com­fort­able to wear. 7. Garnier Orig­i­nal BB Cream, $20. BB creams mois­turise, pro­tect and cor­rect, so they’re in­dis­pens­able when trav­el­ling. This is one of the very best. 8. Weleda Tinted Lip Balm in Nude, $16. Es­sen­tial mois­ture with a hint of tint. 9. Avène Ther­mal Spring Water, $15. Care for sen­si­tive com­plex­ions when trav­el­ling with this skin-soother. Use it on sun­burn, ra­zor burn, fa­cial red­ness, itch­ing and more. 10. Cu­rio Noir Pūrotu Rose par­fum, 5ml, $40. Tiny, por­ta­ble, fine fra­grance is hard to come by. This gem is a win­ner. 11. Rose gold metal­lic eye­lash curler, $7 from Kmart. Even with­out make-up, curl­ing lashes makes you look re­freshed when you’re jet-lagged. 12. Quilted cos­met­ics bag, $6 from Kmart. Medium sized to fit eas­ily in a carry-on bag.
