There are miniatures of your favorite beauty products and then there are travel essentials. Sure, there’s some overlap but it warrants differentiation; You don’t necessarily need a smaller version of everything in your makeup arsenal for your next vacation. Instead, it’s all about condensing and combining your favorite products while keeping in mind the needs of your getaway location. Here, the nine best products to do just that. Now, all you need to do is book that trip…
