As much as fashion insiders like to talk about, well, fashion, they very often have an affinity for all things beauty as well. Yes, just as quickly as they’ll tell you about the latest trends they’re adopting in their closets, I’m betting that they would be ready to spill just which life-changing mask they’re using or the concealer that never leaves their bag or the must-try Hollywood-approved spray tan if you asked them. So naturally, I did just that. Specifically, I wanted to find out the beauty products that are so good that they always land in fashion insiders’ travel bags. To me, a beauty product someone can’t travel without just has to be worth trying.
So what are the best beauty products according to fashion insiders? Ahead, I’m breaking down the items they’ll never leave the country without. Go on to shop their tried-and-tested favorites to add to your medicine cabinet.

"Usually, I go straight to work after being on a plane, so I always bring the Capture Youth oil-serum and mix it with my foundation for a touch up before I leave the plane. I also apply it before the flight so my skin feels moisturized."
"I always bring my foundation, not that I apply on my entire face on the plane, but I just feel fresher when I dap it under my eyes and around the nose and cheeks."

"Normally I don't wear makeup on a flight, but my pores still feel clogged and dirty. To prevent breakouts from traveling, I carry makeup removing pads and do a little cleanse routine mid-flight. Your skin will thank you, and you can enjoy your vacation, zit-free."
"Planes and traveling in general can take a toll on your skin and leave it feeling completely dehydrated. I always carry this spray with me and spray some on my face during my flight and once I land. It makes you feel refreshed and hydrates your skin."
