seasonal must-haves for your travel makeup bag

let’s talk about what’s in your travel makeup bag, subtl beauties. do you switch up your travel makeup bag’s contents, or does your beauty routine stay relatively the same all year? either way, tons of makeup artists recommend freshening up your makeup routine alongside the seasons. this helps you tailor your regimen based on the weather where you live or are traveling to. for example, dry seasons call for cream products, while humid ones pair well with powder.

because shopping for products at every turn of the season sounds time-consuming, we created comprehensive pre-made staks for your travel makeup bag. check out our stackable makeup recommendations for all four seasons (along with some non-beauty must-haves):

with spring comes blossoming flowers, rain showers, and – you guessed itthe spring stak. Have you added it to your travel makeup bag yet? If not, then here are the deets: it comes with a lip and cheek tint in runway to rose, powder blush in blossom bound, eyeshadow duo in jelly, lip balm in mediterranean mint, and a compact mirror base complete with a versatile mini brush.

each subtl beauty product featured in our spring stak was carefully chosen for the season. for example, we opted for our powder blush because powder products can help set your makeup, making it more durable and long-lasting to get you through a warm spring day. perfect for all complexions, the limited edition spring stak is a travel makeup bag must-have for everyone

how to get your travel makeup bag ready for fall

travel makeup bag must-haves for fall

though we still have a while left before fall arrives, we can’t wait for pumpkin spice, apple cider, all things scary, and the fall stak. since we’re the home of custom makeup, we – in true subtl fashion – crafted a fall stak. while it’s not time for it yet because we’re currently enjoying the delights of spring, it features three best-selling products we can’t get enough of. 

subtl's fall stak is a travel makeup bag must-have; it features lip & cheek tint, cream highlighter, and more

the fall stak comes with a lip and cheek tint in the shade auburn adventure, cream highlighter in espresso martini, and eyeshadow duo in bon voyage. each hue featured in the fall stak perfectly complements the season's tones, while the formulations protect and nourish your skin from the dry weather. if you want to grab some of the shades ahead of fall, you can get the single pans today. 

check out what makes the fall stak such a travel makeup must-have:

  • it came out in 2023, alongside three new shades.
  • subtl’s eyeshadow duos are crease-proof with all-day staying power.
  • our cream highlighter doubles as a cream eyeshadow.

travel makeup bag must-haves for winter

winter is one of the best times to grab subtl beauty’s custom makeup because they make awesome stocking stuffers. while we drop winter travel makeup bag must-haves as the season progresses, we always recommend the ready set go deluxe set; it features everything you need to get through winter (and the holiday season), like our mini travel makeup brush set.

subtl's ready set go deluxe set is a travel makeup bag must-have; it features cream concealer, lip and cheek tint, lip balm, mini travel makeup brush set, and more.

the ready set go deluxe set also features a travel makeup bag (in case you don’t have a good-quality one), cream concealer in the shade of your choice, lip and cheek tint in terracotta tour guide, shine control pressed powder, and original lip balm that’s unflavored. if you’re not sure what concealer shade to try, we recommend giving our beginner-friendly beauty quiz a go.
