1. Makeup

If you’re traveling you will probably be attending dinner parties, family gatherings, and nights out with friends. There’s no better time to show off your best makeup looks than now! Make sure you fill your makeup bag with all the essentials: foundation, eyeshadows, and lipsticks. Tarte cosmetics has an array of glamorous makeup products that are cruelty-free and hypoallergenic. The Tarteist™ PRO Palette holds 20 ultra-pigmented eyeshadows that are perfect for creating multiple looks on the go. Finish off your eye look with the Lights, Camera, Lashes™ mascara that catches and coats every lash.

2. Comfy outfit options

The holiday season is always filled with lots of food and fun. When you find yourself in need of some down time you can throw on a comfy outfit and relax. These limited edition #ActuallySheCan tank tops were created in partnership with Le Motto, and they are the perfect lounge wear. Make a statement with one of these soft, breathable, slogan tanks.

3. Hand cream

Winter is right around the corner and it’s getting colder by the day. The cold, dry air can begin to take a toll on your skin, especially your hands. Being by Sanctuary Spa offers hand creams that are perfect to throw in your purse for on-the-go. Try out their Salted Caramel & Macadamia or Cloudberry & Lychee Blossom for soft hands that smell good enough to eat! 

4. Eye gel

As college students we have to make the most of our vacations. That means lots of late nights binge watching Netflix and hanging out with home town friends. When you need a quick fix for those tired eyes, this cooling gel by Alba Botanica® is a great option. It revives the eyes and helps reduce puffiness so that you can still look your best even when you’re running on 3 hours of sleep! 

5. Krazy Glue

That’s right. You never really know what’s going to happen on vacation! You may need to glue your favorite sunnies back together or fix the heel on those booties you just can’t get enough of. Krazy Glue is super-strong, fast-drying, and able to bond to just about anything! These mini tubes are perfect to carry in your travel bag for those little emergencies.
