The holidays cause lots of traveling to see family, friends, lovers and loved ones. While us ladies strive to pack light, we somehow always manage to squeeze in all of our beauty essentials, no matter how heavy the load. If you’re a beauty junkie, you’re probably packing your entire makeup collection—fearing that one shade of red for the few days you’re home just won’t suffice. We get it. We just want to make sure you have the official essentials you’ll need to stay fresh faced. Here are our top picks!
