When John Ray said, “Beauty is power and a smile is its sword” he was probably referring to the beauty which is visible to the world because a beautiful person can get half of the things sorted out without any effort. While you can’t do without every product, you can’t carry everything either. The weight of the beauty product also matters when you are traveling, so it’s always better to carry small bottles or sample size products.

Listed below are 5 make-up products that are must-have in your bag while traveling:
