I’m that annoying friend who brings three pouches worth of skincare and makeup products wherever I go. No matter how heavy my handbag gets, I always carry my trusty beauty products with me because you never know when you’ll need them, amirite? However, over the years, I’ve realised (mostly because of my shoulder pain from carrying heavy bags) that I don’t have to stop carrying my beloved products. *Fun-sized beauty products have entered the chat*. The trick is not to cut down on the beauty products that you carry, but to just carry smaller versions of them. Here are some fun-sized beauty products you can easily carry with you everywhere you go:
1. Pixi Hydrating Milky Mist
If you’re looking for a fun-size product that’ll instantly refresh and hydrate your skin, then you’ll love this face mist from Pixi. It contains ingredients like hyaluronic acid, vitamin B and black oat extract. Spritzing some of this comforting mist on your face will instantly hydrate and refresh your skin. It makes your skin the perfect base for the application of serums or makeup.
2. Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer
Girls with an oily skin type, meet your new BFF! This oil-controlling and pore minimizing primer will make sure that your makeup stays put for 8 hours. It’s suitable for people with oily and combination skin types. Carrying this fun-sized beauty product will definitely come in handy.
3. Sugar Foundation Stick
As much as I love my liquid foundations, they’re a pain to carry and use when you’re on the go. Lucky for us, foundation sticks like these exist just to make our life easier and make our skin look clear. Plus if you carry a foundation stick in your bag instead of a bottle of liquid foundation, you won’t have to worry about any leaks. It’s a win-win situation!
4. The Body Shop Lip and Cheek Stain
Two is better than one and this lip and cheek stain is proof. Instead of carrying a blush palette and a lipstick, carry this lip and cheek stain. This multi-tasking fun-sized beauty product will come in handy when you want to add some colour to your face. All you have to do is dab a few drops of this tint on your cheeks and lips and you’re good to go.
5. Benefit Hoola Matte Bronzer Mini
Looking like a tanned goddess has never been easier thanks to this mini bronzer. This fun-sized beauty product comes with a mini mirror and a mini brush to make your life simpler. Adding some of this matte bronzing powder to the hollows of your cheeks and jawline will give you a healthy sun-kissed glow.
6. MAC False Lashes Extreme Black Mascara
IMHO owning a fun-sized mascara is way better than owning a full-sized one. Since you have to replace your mascara every three months, it’s better to own a mini one that you’ll get the most use out of. Having this mini mascara in your bag will come in handy when it’s time for those spontaneous date nights.
7. Kora Organics Rose Quartz Illuminator
Carrying your entire highlighter palette with you every day is not feasible. Hence, this little pot of rose quartz illuminator is perfect to slip into your handbag. This product will give you the most gorgeous and healthy glow. You can add some of this powder to the high points of your face and get an instant glow.
8. Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover
It’s super important to remove your makeup at the end of the day. So always carry a mini bottle of makeup remover like this one, so that you can remove your makeup and save yourself from breakouts.
