As any jet-setter knows, packing the perfect bag is an art not easily mastered. Luckily, three of Allure's editors have that art down to a science, and they’ve agreed to spill on the items that always make the cut, no matter how limited the cargo space.
Beauty Reporter Devon Abelman, Makeup Editor Sable Yong, and Deputy Director Sam Escobar each shared their favorite travel-friendly items to pack in a pinch. Whether it's the cutest avocado-shaped battery pack you've ever seen, or a pair of lightweight earbuds from Bang & Olufsen that manage to block out sound despite their tiny size, these picks have got every aspect of the journey covered. But where are the beauty products, you ask? Don't worry, these editors haven't forgotten them — they just prioritize the most important aspects of their routines: their skin. One of the simplest ways they do this is by bringing along Neutrogena's new Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes Singles, a compact wipe designed to fit into your busy life and your overstuffed baggage. They’re small enough to stash anywhere, ensuring that instant, on-the-go refreshment is only ever a swipe away, no matter how unexpected the beauty emergency you're facing.
And that’s just one of the pro tips that our editors use to travel light, so take a peek inside their baggage for all the carry-on essentials that these three staffers swear by. Follow their example, and you’ll find yourself maximizing space while still staying prepared for everything — so get ready to breeze through that security line without breaking a sweat.
