What do you get the traveler who has everything? You can never go wrong with beauty products because they either get used up or worn out!

This season is full of limited edition, ultra packable, travel-sized goodies so make sure to pick something up before it’s all gone!

Whether you’re shopping for a savvy traveler or need to pick up a few things for yourself, this is the perfect season to shop for a good deal. When it comes to skincare and makeup, I’m generally a drugstore shopper. This is the one time of the year where I save up to pick up some splurge-worthy deals at the department stores.


Best Beauty Gifts for Jetsetters

Written by: Josie Reim


 Travel-Sized Makeup Brush Sets


M.A.C. Enchanted Eve Basic Brush Kit


Bobbi Brown Mini Brush Set


Real Techniques Core Collection Set


This is the perfect time of the year to buy designer makeup brushes either for yourself or they also make the best beauty gifts for travelers. Although this may seem like an unnecessary splurge, there’s something about using a professional makeup brush that makes even the dullest makeup look gorgeous.

Because I’m always traveling, I don’t like bringing a cosmetics bag of full-sized brushes. My solution: pick up a limited edition brush set from one of your favorite designer makeup brands.

In addition to the compact size of the brushes, there’s also the added affordability: a single, full-sized brush could easily cost as much as a limited-edition travel bundle.

If you need to pick up a travel brush set for you or a fellow traveler, this is the perfect time of the year to get a great deal!


 Travel Toiletries


Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Set


COOLA Suncare Signature Travel Kit

Moroccanoil Hydrating Travel Kit


If you want to splurge on some designer skincare products but don’t want to pay for a whole set, travel toiletries are a great way to get a taste of each product in their line and make some of the best beauty gifts.

It’s also a great way to get travel-sized versions of your favorite products and possibly try some things that are new. They usually come with a complimentary travel bag – I can always find a way to put that extra bag to use!


Take a look at out top ten toiletry bags!


 Makeup Travel Palettes


Laura Mercier Glam to Go Cheek, Eye, & Lip Travel Set

Dior Couture Creations Palette


Smashbox Master Class Palette: Lighting Theory


My favorite way to travel is with an all-in-one makeup palette. I don’t like to spend too much time organizing different pods of makeup and then packing all those different pieces.

A small palette is all I need to feel like I’m put together when I’m on vacation: it’s easy to grab and easy to find which means I’m less likely to forget or lose an item. If you want to simplify but not eliminate your makeup travel routine, check out the above versatile palettes.


Whether you love these department store brands or just want to update your looks, the end of the year is the perfect time to try out these limited edition sets. I don’t often buy my cosmetics at the department store but when I do, I make sure I get the best bang for my buck!
