The best make-up palettes for travel
The most important benefit of solid products is that they don’t leak
When traveling you might want to stay away from liquid products as much as possible so having solid beauty products is essential. There are many benefits to swapping your liquids for solid products; they’re light weighted which leaves you extra weight in your luggage and they usually come in small and compact containers or palettes (this will also give you extra luggage space). The most important benefit of solid products is that they don’t leak. Having your favorite beauty product in solid formula is already a plus let alone having them in palettes, which allows you to combine your favorites in one palette.
If you have a bunch of solid beauty products that don’t come in a palette, not to worry, there are always refillable palettes available that you can use.
Becca cosmetics are known for making the most beautiful highlighters. Their highlighters vary in different textures from powder, liquid, to solid. Luckily, they all come in the same shades too.

Carrying liquid foundations in your luggage can be tricky most of the time. Liquid foundations usually come in glass bottles so the risk of the bottle breaking is quite big. Not to mention the amount of weight it takes up in your luggage. Cream foundations can be a great alternative if you want to skip packing a liquid bottle. This cream palette by Anastasia Beverly Hills features 6 shades, which allows you to sculpt, define and highlight features of your face. It also allows you to cover up blemishes and imperfections without looking and feeling too cakey. By using a damp sponge or a foundation brush, you can easily apply the smooth texture of these creamy foundations.
Anastasia Beverly Hills, Cream Contour Kit $40
Having a large lipstick palette while traveling may not be very convenient during your trip unless you’re a professional make-up artist.

This small lip palette by MAKE UP FOR EVER comes with a brush and 5 lipstick colors of your choice, each shade can be refilled or replaced.
