School is finally back and fall is almost upon us! As an almost two year college graduate, I love reminiscing about my days in school. I loved having my own apartment to spread out and decorate the way I wanted. Even if it was only during the week. Like most college students, I moved away from home to a university. Home was about an hour and a half away and, of course, a lot of traveling back and forth was involved. So college fashionistas and beauty lovers, I feel your pain.
I’ve pulled together a few of my favorite travel tips and products for all of the traveling college students, working women, and vacationing girls who are dedicated to maintaining their beauty routine even on-the-go!
Hydropeptide On-the-Go Travel Kit
First up is the Hydropeptide On-the-Go Glow Anti-Wrinkle Travel Set. Travel can make your skin feel dehydrated and look aged. The four-part travel set from Hydropeptide highlights their best anti-wrinkle products in easily portable sizes. Each product targets specific skin problems and works to not only remedy them, but to prevent them from happening any longer. All four products come wrapped in a cute and portable cosmetic bag, perfect for slipping into your suitcase when you’re hitting the road.
Start with the Pre-Treatment Toner. Toner works to shrink the appearance of the pores on your face and to cleanse your skin of the day’s collected dirt. Apply a small amount all over your face and neck using a cotton pad.
The Purifying Mask is your new favorite clay mask. Masks are the latest trend in the beauty industry to cleanse the skin of the dirt and excess oil it sees throughout the day. Hydropeptide’s clay mask works to not only cleanse, but to lift, firm, and hydrate your skin. Bonus points for posting a mask pick wearing yours!
Next, we have the Face Lift. After cleansing your beautiful skin, apply a small amount of this moisturizer to your face and neck for an extra shot of hydration. Peptides (amino acids) work to restore your skin’s original firmness and to fade any age spots.
And finally we come to my favorite product in the Hydropeptide On-the-Go set: the Eye Authority. Under eye bags and dark circles have been my constant companion recently. Maybe it’s the late nights or maybe it’s my addiction to my phone and laptop. Who knows? All I know is that I needed to get rid of the ASAP. The Eye Authority has helped reduce the darkness beneath my eyes and lift the bags by reducing the fine lines that have formed. You can bet the full-sized product will be sitting on my bathroom counter at home pretty soon.

Multi-use & compact brushes
When you pack as many clothes and beauty products as I do when you travel, you understand the importance of multi-use products. Especially when it comes to the dozens of tools I use for applying makeup. After my trip to Washington DC earlier this year, I made it my mission to find a few tools that will make packing a little bit simpler. Some of my favorite brushes come from EcoTools, which can be found in any Walmart, Target, or CVS. Check out their retractable kabuki brush for foundation and the double-ended eye precision duo for your eye looks.
Much like the makeup brushes, multi-use palettes definitely help saving room in your toiletry bag. When looking at your face makeup routine, one palette that covers at least two aspects of your routine will travel much better than multiple bottles, tubes, and compacts. The Tarte Tarteist Contour Palette provides both blush and bronzer in a small palette.
Choose an eyeshadow palette that allows you to create both day and night looks. For me, that palette is the Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani collab palette (on sale!!). It’s the perfect mix of neutral and foil eyeshadows that match most of my outfits.
Once you’ve picked up your perfect travel beauty pieces, you need something to transport them in, right? Both of these train cases from Nordstrom and Ulta come in a variety of colors and prints to keep you looking fashionable even on-the-go!
