Fly First Class With These Ten Travel Beauty Kits

It's a freeing feeling when you nail down your beauty routine enough to carry only the few, specific products that you love—especially when you travel. That's why our algorithm ranked the best travel beauty kits that guarantee to keep your makeup game—and your face—fresh while on the go. Some focus on certain features, like lips, eyes, or brows, while others include staple products that lend themselves to the larger process of sprucing up after a long day, like dry shampoo and blotting papers. No matter what is housed inside the shiny compacts and cute kits, they're small enough to toss in your purse or backpack and head out the door with confidence.
