The Best Carry-On Beauty Products for Your Honeymoon Destination
From jungle safaris to city trips, we've got you covered.
If you've already chosen a honeymoon destination, you've likely thought about (and maybe even shopped for!) all the pretty things you'll wear. Just because your vacation-ready ensembles take take up the most room in your suitcase, however, doesn't mean there isn't space for a great beauty bag. After all, taking good care of your skin—especially if you're traveling to a spot that's close to the equator—is paramount. And let's not even get started on what spending time in a new climate might do to your hair!
Getting your favorite beauty products ready for their carry-on debut can be easier said than done. No one enjoys squeezing lotions and potions into those travel-sized bottles. To streamline the process, we've put together a list of items that meet TSA guidelines—no squeezing necessary. And we've done so with your honeymoon destination in mind, since different locations mean packing altogether different hair, skin, and makeup products. Embarking on a safari adventure? We've filled a tribal-print pouch with sun protection for your face and hair, chic bug spray, and earthy, bronze-hued makeup that won't feel too done. Heading to the concrete jungle, instead? On the skin care front, opt for products that will protect you from free radicals; for base, choose sheer formulas that will keep you looking effortless and natural.
If you're beachin' it, you know the drill: SPF! We recommended two moisturizing, waterproof sunscreens and tanning towelettes, so you can get a glow without the burn. No matter where your honeymoon takes you, we've got you covered. Keep your face, body, and hair safe, sound, and pretty with the following powerhouse products.
Embarking on a tropical getaway? Keep things minimal with light-as-air formulations and the newest SPF-meets-makeup hybrids to punch up your newly married glow. But of course, you don't need the sun to do that. With self-tanning towelettes, fresh cream blush, and a sheer coral lip, it's easy (and safer!) to fake that Positano suntan. Just be sure to wash off makeup, sunscreen, and sweat at the end of the night with a refreshing cleanser—click on to discover our favorite.

Whether your travels take you on a safari, zip-lining through rainforests, or glamping under the stars, you'll need a beauty stash that can keep up with your wild side—but doesn't look out of place in the wilderness. The trick? Keeping the color palette earthy and natural, with teracotta-colored bronzers, coppery eye shadows, and warm pink-brown lipsticks. We also made sure that our picks are waterproof, sweatproof, insect-proof, and SPF-imbued to help you brave the elements. We didn't forget to pack a little luxury, though. If you hiked and climbed the day away, you'll love putting on a rich eye masque before bed.
