Carrying big bottles of liquids is a big no-no while you’re travelling. But if you do decide to carry one, it should at least be something that’ll have you sorted for multiple things.

You could just pack a beauty blender to blend away all your cream products, but storing it in your makeup bag while it’s damp can be quite tricky. Carrying multiple brushes takes up a considerable amount of space, so that’s no an option. Nudestix’s blend and buff brush is a great alternative.

This dual-ended, compact brush works well for applying all your cream, liquid, and powder makeup products. It has a dense, fluffy brush on one end for diffused blending, and a smaller, tapered brush on the other for a more precise blend.

As the brand says, 2-in-1 is always more fun (and convenient)! Typsy Beauty’s Double Shot Eyeliner is one of their 2 in 1 product–the other being a very convenient lipstick and lip liner duo–that can take your simple eye look to the next level. The super pigmented, felt tip liner makes it very easy to create a wing eyeliner, while the creamy, waterproof kajal gives the eyes some sultry definition.

PIXI Natural Brow Duo

Even if you decide not to wear any makeup on your travels, just doing your eyebrows can frame the face and make you look put together. Instead of carrying a brow pomade, brow gel, spoolie and eyebrow brush, you can just carry Pixi’s Natural Brow Duo. It’s a convenient pencil and gel duo with a precisely angled tip on one end that defines the eyebrows, and a tinted brow gel on the other that effortlessly sets the brows in place.

e.l.f. Cosmetics Clear Brow & Lash Mascara

To achieve that clean girl aesthetic, a clear mascara and clear brow gel are a must. And this is possible in just ₹250 with the no-nonsense e.l.f cosmetics clear brown and lash mascara. It’s a lightweight, non-stick, long-lasting formula that is sure to make it through the day. The mascara end separates the lashes, giving the eyes a fluttery look, and the gel end gives a natural definition to the brows.

In our efforts to give you a convenient alternative to achieve a full face of makeup, we cannot forget the lips. And another dual ended-product that has made it to the list because of its convenient packaging and the stellar formula is the ColorStay Overtime Lipcolor by Revlon. Go in with the highly pigmented, long-wearing side first and then add a layer of the clear gloss on top. This will give you the most luscious, smudge-proof, shiny lips that’ll last you for up to 16 hours.

Moreover, the brand also promises that you’ll get colour that never feels dry, bleeds, or feathers. If you’re not yet convinced, the cult status of their Glass Shine Lipsticks is proof enough that the brand really knows their lipstick formulations.
