No one wants to lug all their full-size products in a separate bag. Talk about aggravation. Sometimes less is more and there are so many ways to pack your favorite redhead beauty products for your upcoming adventure.

1. Use multi-tasking products

This will eliminate space and have you getting ready faster than ever. Try a company like Busy Beauty that enables you to shampoo, condition, wash and shave all in under 5 minutes without water. Their body wipes, dry shave gel and shampoo/conditioner are all TSA-approved.

In terms of makeup, try a blush and lip product in one. ILIA Multi-Stick (Shade: Cheek To Cheek or All Of Me) and RMS Beauty Lip2Cheek (Shade: Smile and Demure) are our two ‘redhead friendly’ favorites.

2. Check to see if your favorite beauty items come in travel size

You can purchase travel-size hair straighteners, blow dryers, water bottles (have to stay hydrated!) and even protein packs to make your bag light and easy to carry. If you’re into skin and body devices, look to see if your favorite brand carries a travel size version, like the FOREO mini 2.

3. Get your hands on some travel kits 

There are so many travel kits out there! Similar to step #2, look to see if your favorite ‘redhead friendly’ brand carries travel size kits. Some of our favorites: Devacurl Super Curly Curls On The Go, Briogeo Farewell Frizz Frizz Control Travel Kit and Clinique Acne Solutions Fix It Kit.

4. Go the DIY route 

You can go DIY by purchasing TSA-approved travel plastic containers to fill your must-have shampoo, conditioners and styling products. Stackable pots are great for body lotion, face cream, eye cream and sunscreen. Just label them so you know what is what when traveling. You don’t want to reach for your styling gel thinking it’s shampoo!

5. Don’t stress if you forgot something 

Did you forget your toothbrush, toothpaste or hair brush? Depending on what your trip entails and where you are jetting off to, you can always go to a local drugstore or ask your hotel for these missed items.

6. Carry your essentials with you 

This includes your medication, glasses/contacts, eye solution (if you wear contacts) and any other important essentials you need in case your bag checked bag gets lost. If you’re flying, bring with you a sheet mask, lip balm and hand cream to make sure you’re staying moisturized while in the air.
