travel makeup bag must-haves for tropical beaches

travel makeup bag must-haves for a beachy destination: shine control pressed powder, bronzer, lip & cheek in hibiscus highway, and cream highlighter in espresso martini

in a beach setting – such as orlando, maui, and bora bora – you’ll want a sun-kissed look with lots of bronzer and gold accents. the subtl beauty bronzer is extremely versatile and can be used as a bronzer, warm contour, eyeshadow, and face powder, making it the perfect multi-use bff. we also recommend packing our cream highlighter in espresso martini for an added glow. 

when it comes to a tropical vacation, the weather can be hit-or-miss with lots of humidity. this means that your makeup could oxidize or go toe-to-toe with sweat in the battle to stay put. with the subtl shine control pressed powder, your makeup with last regardless of the weather. to finish up, add some color in your travel makeup bag with the lip & cheek in hibiscus highway

travel makeup bag must-haves for arctic adventures

travel makeup bag must-haves for an arctic destination: eyeshadow duo in layover, powder highlighter in champagne, lip balm in mediterranean mint, and powder blush in blossom bound

when visiting arctic destinations (such as reykjavik, tromsø, and anchorage), you'll want travel makeup that complements icy landscapes and chilly atmospheres like our eyeshadow duo in layover. it features a cool lilac shimmer and soft lilac matte that pairs beautifully with our powder highlighter in champagne, leaving your skin as radiant as your frosty destination. 

if you’ve never traveled to an icy locale, make sure to pack lip balm as they have low humidity, dry air, wind, and damaging uv rays (you need spf 24/7). the subtl lip balm in mediterranean mint provides intense hydration with a nourishing blend of shea butter, coconut oil, and vitamin e, but don’t forget to add the cherry on top with our buildable powder blush in blossom bound.

travel makeup bag must-haves for desert escapes

travel makeup bag must-haves for a desert destination: eyeshadow duo in dune, bronzer, lip & cheek in raspberry room service, and cream concealer

if you’ve never been on a desert escape to places like dubai, vegas, and cairo – you’re missing out. to complement the warm undertones of the dry, arid environment, try going for muted browns and tans. our eyeshadow duo in dune paired with the subtl bronzer is the perfect duo to add depth and richness to your look by reflecting the hues of the serene desert landscape.

another travel makeup bag must-have for the desert is a hydrating lip product, which is essential due to the dry air, intense sun, wind, and dehydration. not only gorgeous on the lips, but our lip & cheek in raspberry room service is ultra-hydrating with the help of jojoba oil and shea butter. finish up with our cream concealer that’s also filled with nourishing ingredients.

travel makeup bag must-haves for mountain retreats

travel makeup bag must-haves for a mountain destination: eyeshadow duo in bon voyage, powder blush in pink in a pinch, lip & cheek in terracotta tour guide, and cream highlighter in rosé

mountain retreats, like aspen, banff, and queenstown, are becoming more and more popular with tourists for their lush greenery and rocky terrains. with subtl’s eyeshadow duo in bon voyage having a light brown matte shade and a dark taupe, you’ll be able to create an eye look reminiscent of weathered stone. for some shine, add a dash of cream highlighter in rosé.

to mimic the rosy glow you get from spending time outdoors in the crisp mountain air, try using our powder blush in pink in a pinch on the apples of your cheeks, blending until you’re happy with the shade. lastly, take our creamy lip & cheek in terracotta tour guide and apply it to your pout for a flawless finish that’ll complement your travel locale’s picturesque scenery.

travel makeup bag must-haves for urban exploration

travel makeup bag must-haves for an urban destination: cream highlighter in champagne, powder blush in daytrip at dawn, eyeshadow duo in cruise, and lip & cheek in elderberry escapade

in an urban setting – such as new york city, london, and paris – the landscape is diverse and vibrant, offering you a wide range of complementary makeup hues to choose from. for example, muted pastels, like the lavender shade in our eyeshadow duo in cruise, convey an elegance suited for urban settings. neutral tones and a classic mauve lip are other great options.

@subtlbeauty Cruise is BACK & i for one am loving how this looks! #makeupstack #stackablemakeup #travelfriendlymakeup ♬ original sound - Subtl Beauty

furthermore, we always recommend throwing on a cream highlighter while visiting an urban destination because of the effects of air pollution and air conditioning. cream highlighters offer added hydration to your skin, helping you maintain a healthy, glowing complexion all day. to finish up your urban look, add a pop of color to your cheeks for warmth and dimension.
