SUMMER 2017
By Wendy Rose Gould for Modern Muse

Heading for a long weekend out of town or a much-needed extended getaway? Bon voyage, but don't forget your beauty regimen while lapping up beachside margaritas, window shopping or sightseeing. You don't even have to overpack to bring everything you need for a healthy vacation glow: These tote-able, travel-friendly, multitasking products will keep you looking bright, moisturized and pretty!

Tarte Tarteguard

Not only does Tarte's Tarteguard 30 Sunscreen Lotion ward of UV Rays and keep your face protected from the sun, it moisturizes and fights signs of aging, too! This sunscreen is loaded up with a buffet of skin nourishing ingredients, including maracuja oil to firm and brighten, red algae to hydrate and revitalize, apple and honeysuckle extract to reduce signs of aging, and hyaluronic acid to plump and refresh your skin. It's especially totable because the glass bottle has a rubberized cover to protect it from breaking while on the go, and it comes in two travel-friendly sizes, available at Sephora: 1.7-oz. for $32, and .4-oz. for $12.

Marvis Toothpaste

Who knew a tube of toothpaste could be so glam? Marvis is the king of fabulously packaged oral health products, and their fun-flavored toothpastes come in a TSA-approved 1.3-oz. size for $6 as well. They're not just pretty to look at, though. There are seven flavors to choose from, including Whitening Mint, Jasmin Mint, Classic Strong Mint, Aquatic Mint, Amarelli Licorice, Cinnamon Mint and Ginger Mint. You can find them at Sephora.

Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil

Are you more of an oil-lover than a cream person? Or do you like to layer up on moisturizers? In either case, Sunday Riley's Luna Sleeping Night Oil is a must-pack. Loaded with trans-retinoic acid ester (retinol) complex, blue tansy and German chamomile essential oils, this is a heavy duty nighttime moisturizing oil that doubles as an anti-aging product and will leave you looking refreshed in the morning. Jet lag, begone! For traveling, try the smaller, .5 oz. version, which is available at Sephora for $55.

TrèStiQue Matte Color & Shiny Balm Lip Crayon

Now you can have your matte finish and your lip gloss, too. TrèStiQue's two-in-one lip crayons feature a matte lip color on one end, and a lip gloss on the other. Because it has a magnetic closure feature, the cap is sure to stay on tight even while you're sprinting between flights on a short layover, and the built-in versatility means you can carry one less product in your bag! They cost $28 each, come in seven super wearable colors and can be purchased at Sephora.

It Cosmetics Je Ne Sais Quoi Complexion Perfection

This quad palette is a true multitasker unlike most you'll find, and you can pick it up at either Sephora or Ulta for $42. Je Ne Sais Quoi contains a matte bronzer, luminizer, blush and pressed finishing powder — everything you need to complete your look. Throw on a bit of lip color or gloss, and you're looking at a beauty routine that fits in your pockets and leaves you looking and feeling flawless.

Pinch Provisions Minimergency Kit for Her

You don't have to be the person with the 20-pound bag full of "what if I need it?" necessities. Instead, be the person with the three-ounce, palm-sized pouch! Despite its size, this TSA-compliant zipper bag still contains everything you could possibly need during your upcoming trips, including a lip balm with over 100 uses, a breath freshener with 120 drops, hair spray, clear nail polish, dental floss, clear elastics, a sewing kit, medicine and more. Nab one of these handy bags at Sephora for $16.
