5 Travel Makeup Tips for Jet-Setting Business Women

Does your job require lots of traveling, leaving you practically living out of your carry-on and travel makeup bag? If so – you’re in the right place. At Subtl, we believe every woman on the go deserves the best travel makeup, which is why we created our fan-favorite Starter Stak.

Check out this video of a jet-setting business woman using Subtl to see what makes us stand out in the world of travel makeup:

Before diving into why our Starter Stak is a game-changer for travel makeup and business women everywhere, here are some tips to keep you looking flawless while venturing around the globe for work:

Travel Makeup Tip #1: Invest in a Good-Quality Makeup Bag (Ours Has a See-Through Window for Easy TSA Pass-Throughs)

If you’re wondering how to properly travel with makeup as a business woman – all signs point to a travel makeup bag. Opting for a smaller, more compact travel makeup bag will help you choose the items you really need while leaving behind the ones you don't.

For those looking for a high-quality travel makeup bag, snag one of the Subtl Beauty Cosmetic Bags before everyone finds out how easy they make traveling with makeup. Did you happen to notice the clear window on the front? That’s to make rushing through TSA a breeze.

Oh – and it’s super cute, too, so you’ll be traveling and hitting up your meetings in Subtl style:

Travel Makeup Tip #2: Think About the Climate Where Your Meeting Across the Globe Will Take Place

For your next meeting abroad, will you be going to a beachy destination or a colder locale? Either way – different travel spots present unique makeup needs. For example, your makeup needs on a hot day in Italy will likely be different than if you’re in a chilly area like Iceland. 

To track the weather for your upcoming work trip, try More Cast; it even allows you to check the cities you fly through to help you choose what makeup to pack. However, no matter the weather or destination, there is one essential every business woman needs: translucent powder

The Subtl Beauty Translucent Shine Control Pressed Powder helps protect your skin from the harmful effects of blue light, eliminates shine, and locks your makeup in place. It also contains Squalane, which is an excellent hydrating ingredient, along with Ectoin for pollution protection.

Travel Makeup Tip #3: Always Go For Multi-Use Beauty Products

When it comes to travel makeup, Subtl Beauty understands that multi-use products are practically as valuable as gold or snagging the window seat on the plane. To streamline your makeup routine before takeoff (or during your flight), opt for high-quality multi-use products.

One of our absolute favorites from the Starter Stak is the Subtl Highlighter; it’s your secret weapon against any fatigue from a long flight. Don't limit it to your cheekbones, though — try applying it under your eyebrows and in the corners of your eyes for an instant pick-me-up.

Travel Makeup Tip #4: Have A Compact Mirror On-Hand

Have you ever found yourself quickly throwing on makeup mid-flight, only to find –  oops – you forgot a mirror? Since the compact in-air bathroom has a barely-there mirror, you probably resorted to applying your travel makeup blindly, without a way to see the result (cue the gasp). 

If you’re new here, we’ve solved this common mirror debacle with our Stak 2.0. In the video below, you can see that the Starter Stak (and every Stak, for that matter) comes with a built-in mirror and brush that’s ultra-functional so you can do your makeup anywhere, even on a plane.

At Subtl Beauty, we create products for badass people on the go, which is why we carefully curated the Starter Stak (a 2024 must-have for business women everywhere); it’s a time-saving game-changer that people can’t stop raving about.

Don’t believe us? Check out these 5-star reviews:

Travel Makeup Subtl Reviews: Tina says, "This is the best makeup kit I have ever experienced! It is the perfect starter kit to build on, with all the right products included. The makeup itself is silky soft, buildable, super easy to apply, and the most portable ever! I am completely in love and fully intend to continue to add to my Stack!!"

Here are the makeup necessities that the Starter Stak includes:

  • Cream Concealer (in the shade of your choice): Transformative, versatile, and long-lasting, our Cream Concealer is a lightweight formula that’ll give you great coverage without caking. Plus, it’s infused with Coffee Seed Oil to reduce puffiness. You can choose from nineteen shades and if it’s not a perfect match, we’ll replace it for free.
  • Lip and Cheek (in Terracotta Tour Guide): Versatile and multifunctional, our Lip and Cheek is a creamy 2-in-1 product that’s sure to give you a flawless finish. It comes in four stunning shades tailored to compliment your skin tone and style. With only a few finger taps, you’ll be able to add a dash of color to your look, no matter where you're working from. 
  • Bronzer (based on the Concealer you choose): With our Bronzer having an ultra-high concentration of pigment, a little goes a long way. It’s seamless to blend for a flawless finish, and it’ll give you a long-lasting radiance that’ll make heads turn at your next meeting. The Subtl Bronzer comes in five shades to enhance your natural features. 
  • Pressed-Powder Highlighter (in Champagne): We totally agree that highlighter is one of the best steps of a makeup routine, which is why we made ours easy to use and beginner-friendly. The Subtl Highlighter is versatile, amazing for highlighting and adding a shimmer to your eyeshadow look, and can be built up for a glassy, celestial glow.
  • Shine Control Pressed Powder: Our Shine Control Pressed Powder is a game-changer, especially when you’re attending work events in warmer destinations as it keeps oil at bay. Unlike a lot of other translucent powders, ours is lightweight, cake-free, sets your makeup in place, and will last nearly as long as an entire plane ride across the globe. 

The Starter Stak Travel Makeup Includes Bronzer, Concealer, Highlighter, Shine Control Pressed Powder, and a Lip & Cheek
