In between catching a couple of in-flight movies, getting some shuteye, and reading a book, we say, don’t forget to make your beauty routine a part of your in-flight routine too. But with carry-on luggage restrictions, streamlining your beauty pouch for travel can be a tedious task. Ahead, we share our top tips and picks on how you can effectively trim down your beauty pouch for travel without compromising on your skincare and makeup needs.

Pile on the sun protection
