What Goes in My Carry-on

As a professional makeup artist and a wannabe frequent flier, I’m often asked what are my “go to” beauty products for travel.  I’ve written a number of guest posts on this topic as well as a more in depth story last summer on organizing your wardrobe to fit into one carry-on.

In this news segment for CW33, I put together a variety of products (including a few unisex items) that I like to keep in my carry-on bag. I carry most of these things with me whether I’m on a three hour flight to Los Angeles, or a twelve hour flight to Italy.

  1. I love this, and I’m so passionate about going carryon only -it frees you up in so many ways! I’m searching for the perfect travel mascara – no clumps, no smudges, no looking like Twiggy. Does anyone have any ideas?

    • Hi Vanessa, I’ve tried most all of them. If you want to go budget, try Lash blast by Covergirl or L’Oreal Voluminous. My favorite high end mascara is Dior Show – blackout. Hope this helps Thanks for commenting.

  2. This is a great video and I always enjoy learning about good products to take on trips. I’m going to look for some of these for my upcoming visit to France. Excellent post – thanks Penny!
