College students are constantly on the go — whether it’s to your next class or to the latest music festival. But if you’re trying to do your makeup routine on the go or packing all of your favorite cosmetics to take with you on a trip, it can become near impossible to lug all of your favorite full-sized beauty items with you. That’s where tiny, travel-sized makeup essentials come in. Not only are these tiny cosmetics great for commuting and traveling, but they’re also great for touching up your makeup throughout the day or even testing out products before you invest in the full-sized product. Here are a few tiny, travel-sized makeup products that are totally worth your money.
