Ready, Set, Glam: 8 Travel Makeup Essentials

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

It's the holiday season, which also means it's travel season. Too often, we've had to deal with makeup exploding in our carry-on bags or our lipstick smearing from trying to apply it in an airplane bathroom mirror. The solution?

They're easy to apply, hard to spill, and will make it look like you stepped off the bus, train, or plane looking effortlessly gorgeous. (Don't worry—your secret is safe with us.)
