With the minimalist trend that has recently taken over the fashion world, it appears that bags keep getting smaller by the day. Whether they hold one AirPod—looking at you, Mini Chiquito—or two, the age of carry-alls is over, bringing the need for travel-size makeup that does it all, whether you are going on vacation or not. If you happen to live in New York, shoebox-sized apartments without any storage space have also taught you that less really is more (well, maybe).
That being said, regardless of where you live, consuming responsibly is better not only for the environment but for your wallet as well. But while you might have an idea how to KonMari your clothes and books, when it comes to beauty, the array of products at our disposal can make it hard to narrow it down to what's essential. This can especially become a problem around the holidays: carry-on limits tiny party clutches limit what from your arsenal you can take, limiting you to travel-size makeup just as you need to look your best. Luckily, we've found a few multi-purpose, must-have beauty products that you might want to add to your wishlist. And with this eco-conscious initiative of yours, how could Santa not think that you’ve been good this year? Read up for a list of the best multi-purpose beauty products you need in your makeup bag, and get ready to look festive in fewer steps.
