3. Benefit Benetint
For the past seven years this product has been our long-running favourite. It provides the perfect glow on the apples of the cheeks and provides a cherry tint to your lips.
Benefit Benetint, $36, sephora.ca
4. Argan Oil
This honestly does everything. Honestly, we can't travel without it. Let's just think of all the ways we can use this miracle beauty oil. Moisturizer, under eye treatment, cuticle and dry skin fixer, and even a deep conditioning hair treatment or hair serum for shine. Amazing.
Josie Maran 100 Percent Pure Argan Oil, $58 for 1.7 oz, sephora.ca
Think of eyeshadow as the triple threat. Sweep a neutral brown shade on your lids and blend for instant smokiness, dip a stiff angled brush in water or changing liquid (like M.A.C.'s Liquidation) and apply at the lash line as liner, and use an eyebrow brush to fill in sparse brows.

6. BB Cream
Ease your carryon load with a BB Cream that has SPF, added moisturizer and can cancel out foundation and concealer in one.
Maybelline BB Cream, $11.99, at drugstores and maybelline,com
7. Hair Conditioner
We're definitely big promoters of carryon only. That means sticking to hotel shampoo, but we never, ever forgo our own conditioner (one to many instances where hotel conditioner left us in tangles). The multitasking aspect of bringing your own (or using the hotel's)? Instant shave cream that will leave your legs super soft and smooth.
