When I pack, it's so easy for me to go way overboard, real quick. With my makeup, it's so easy to feel like I need everything. Just like most things, it's quality over quantity -- and size matters too! It's much easier to get ready or touch up your look when your make up is compact and easily accessible. Here are some of my favorite travel-sized cosmetics.

Sephora 8hr Wear Mattifying Compact Foundation

This powder not only comes with a sponge to set, but the case is sturdy and will survive a few accidental collisions with the bathroom floor.

MAC Electric Cool Eyeshadow

This highly pigmented, shimmering shade in Switch To Blue demands attention. Feel free to leave the rest of your look low-key with this bold eye.

NewYorkColor Sky Rise Lengthening Mascara

I'm a big fan of this particular formula and brush. The price is great and this brand is found in many drugstores, so don't panic if you've forgotten this essential.

NARS Radiant Cream Concealer

My favorite concealer comes in a super sleek leak-proof tube and is amazing to apply on the go. I said its my favorite, right?

Tom Ford Lip Color Matte

Scarlet Rouge is sexy and alluring, but not your average red lipstick. Hashtag date night.

Elizabeth and James Eau De Parfum Rollerball

Nirvana White is a blend of feminine peony and mysterious musk, yet light enough for your daily excursions.

NYX Butter Gloss

A nude lip is minimal, yet classic. As much as I love matte, sometimes I need a bit more moisture, especially after a dehydrating plane ride. The solution is this velvety tinted gloss. My go - to shade: Ginger Snap.

NARS Kabuki Ita Brush

This goat hair brush creates a presice contour and blends to an airbrush-like finish. It's lit and SO worth the price.

Prestige Brow Enhancer Clear Gel

I have way too many tools to get my brows fleeky. But when I travel, I usually opt for a more natural appearance.

Gallany Velvet Shadow/Liner Quad

A small eyeshadow palette with muted day and evening hues is so necessary to transition your look when traveling.
