Luckily, most liquid foundations come in 30 ml bottles. Praise God! However, if your foundation bottle is more than 100 ml, regardless of how much actual liquid is inside, they will ask you to chuck it. But remember that you must fit all your liquids into ONE plastic bag, so you need all the space. So I would advise you to get an empty small container and pour some foundation in there. Boots do travel sized products or you can even get them from eBay.
Travel sized Products
There are a few travel sized beauty products available so even if they are a little expensive based on the quantity of product that you are getting for the cost, it is actually better to bring them along. I love the Smashbox Photofinish Primer because the travel-sized version lasts for a long time. I got mine early 2015 and I am still using it. It is also great for taking abroad especially if you are going to a hot country because it is oil-free.
The Simple Kind To Skin Moisturising Facial Wash 50 ml is also a great product to take. If you are like me with sensitive skin, you cannot be using any soap or facial wash on your face, in case you break out. This is a great product to take along.
Don’t forget your suncream ladies! If you are going to a hot country, please do not be tempted to skip the sunscreen. Sun exposure causes premature aging and wrinkles. Yes! Black can crack! I always carry this Nivea Sun Pocket Size SPF30 50ml, to use on my body and very lightly on my face.
I love the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams, because they are small (8ml), I can take a different colours and switch things up. Admittedly they are not long lasting on your lips, especially if you are eating or drinking, but they are highly pigmented and do not dry out your lips, so reapplying is quick and easy. For my dark skin ladies, my favourite colours so far are Prague, Copenhagen, and Transylvania. There are so many colours available. I need to try more colours actually.
