Exploring Global Beauty Trends with Our Game-Changing Travel Makeup Kits
At Subtl Beauty, we create game-changing travel makeup kits that we call Staks for badass people on the go. They’re built to streamline your beauty routine to make packing and going through TSA a breeze. Plus, they provide nourishing skin benefits and the convenience of applying your makeup in the most inconvenient places. Basically, our Staks are like having an entire makeup routine in the palm of your hand, making it a must-have for jetsetters everywhere.
But as a traveling beauty-lover, you probably don’t want to sacrifice the latest beauty trends, and with our travel makeup kits (AKA Subtl Staks), you don’t have to. While they’re great for minimalistic looks, our Staks can also help you achieve these four popular global beauty trends:
Achieving A French Riviera Face With Our Travel Makeup Kits | Fresh Skin With a Bold Lip
Coined by Sofia Richie (Lionel Richie’s daughter), the French Riviera-inspired makeup look includes fresh skin and a bold lip. "Start with a weightless complexion using a sheer tint or opt for just a dab of concealer where needed," says makeup artist Jason Hoffman. "Apply a liberal amount of bronzer to give the effect of a rich tan and finish with a high-impact lip.”
To get this glowing-bronzed look, we recommend grabbing the Lip & Cheek in Hibiscus Highway as it’s able to give a pop of color to both your cheeks and lips (we adore a good multi-use product here at Subtl!). It’s formulated with jojoba oil and shea butter to hydrate and nourish your skin, while also being a compact Stak component to save you space in your carry-on.
This trend can’t be achieved without a long-lasting bronzer, like the Subtl Beauty Bronzer; a little goes a long way with its high pigment concentration, which means you’ll look chiseled to perfection while traveling without using much product. If you’re not one for a bold lip and want to go more neutral, you can finish off the French Riveria look with our hydrating Lip Balm.
SUBTL BEAUTY PROTIP: Not sure how to use bronzer for the French Riviera trend? Or maybe you’re confused about the difference between contour and bronzer? No big deal! To achieve a Kim K-esque-inspired look for this trend, we recommend doing a bit of both. Here’s how:
Cloud Skin | Soft Skin and Natural Radiance: Execute this look with Subtl Beauty's Travel Makeup Kits
Characterized by a soft, flawless, and ethereal complexion – akin to the appearance of a cloud – celebs like Selena Gomez have put the cloud skin trend on the map. "Soft focus skin with natural radiance is having a moment," says makeup artist Danessa Myricks. "The key to getting cloud skin is by balancing a refined, natural finish while preserving a skin-like dimension."
As a base for cloud skin, opt for our buildable, lightweight Cream Concealer in the shade that best fits your skin tone (we have 19 skin-loving shades). Next, since hydrating products are vital to this trend, brush on our innovative Shine Control Pressed Powder; it’s lightweight, cake-free, controls oil in a pinch, and is formulated with the ingredient squalane for a boost of moisture.
To finish, grab our newly launched Cream Highlighter in Rosé for the ultimate natural glow that’s dewy and crease-free. Not only does it blend seamlessly into your skin for a luminosity that lasts all day, but it’s also ultra-versatile; doubling as a flawless cream eyeshadow, this glow-on-the-go highlighter is a must-have for cloud skin and your everyday makeup look.
SUBTL BEAUTY PROTIP: Did you know that you can use our Cream Concealer to cover, contour, and highlight? While this may sound like a lot of complex steps to add to your daily makeup routine, let one of our Subtl Beauties, Niara, show you how quick and easy it can be:
Amplifying Your Edgier Everyday Look | Grunge Glam with Subtl Beauty's Travel Makeup Kits
If you’re anything like the rest of us then you’re stoked to see 90s grunge makeup reemerge after watching shows like Wednesday. “Edgier, everyday makeup, like a more elevated version of Wednesday Addams is big,” says lead Euphoria makeup artist Donni Davy. “It’s a more fierce look that is less about being soft and pretty and more about embracing your edgier side.”
To achieve this look with one of our travel makeup kits, grab the Subtl Lip & Cheek in Passport to Plum and Auburn Adventure. These fall-loving shades are perfect for this edgy trend as they’re rich, decadent tones that can be applied to both your lips and cheeks. To round out the grunge glam look, we recommend going for a smokey eye using the Eyeshadow Duos in Dune.
SUBTL BEAUTY PROTIP: Have you ever used our easy-to-blend, crease-proof Eyeshadow Duos for a smokey eye on-the-go? Or are you new to eyeshadow and need a beginner’s guide? No prob! As usual, Subtl Beauty Niara has you covered with a tutorial for an easy-to-follow golden smokey eye that’ll have heads turning no matter where you’re venturing off to:
Unveiling Your Self-Expression with a Splash of Fun | Colorful and Vibrant Glam Enhanced by Subtl Beauty Travel Makeup Kits
Some also refer to self-expression glam as “dopamine makeup” because it’s such a blast to see on others and apply on yourself. Plus, with this trend – anything goes, especially vibrant tones. “People are craving color,” says Sir John, Beyonce’s makeup artist. “Whenever I’m working on a client and looking to make them feel confident and to set their vibrations high, I use color.”
Since the self-expression glam trend is all about letting your inner self shine through shades that speak to you, we’re just going to offer some basic recs to get you started. No makeup look will ever be complete without a little glow, which is why our easy-to-use, beginner-friendly Powder Highlighter in Champagne is a must-have; and it can be used as both a highlighter and shadow.
We love using blush as a means of self-expression, especially when it comes to our buildable Lip & Cheek in Terracotta Tour Guide. Like most things that Subtl creates, it’s versatile and can be used as both a blush and lip product. If you’re more of a powder blush girlie, you can add the Subtl Powder Blush in Pink In a Pinch to one of our customizable travel makeup kits.
SUBTL BEAUTY PROTIP: Highlighter has become all the rage as of late – and for good reason; it adds a touch of luminosity to your skin, giving you that coveted lit-from-within look. If you’re not sure how to apply highlighter to accentuate your features, check out this tutorial:
