The sun is shining, the breeze is blowing. Yes, Memorial Day has passed and summer travel is beckoning. Heed the call via airplane, jitney, luxury liner or car…but whatever you do, be sure to arrive prepared. Pick up Touch of Ivy‘s beautiful silk makeup bag (lined in practical plastic) at Bluemercury uptown and tuck these wee beauty picks inside. You’ll be on your way to easy, portable glam on the go – no suitcase required.

Start with the base – pun intended – of any makeup routine, foundation. Prescriptives new-ish AnyWear Multi-Purpose Makeup Stick with SPF 15 is packaged in a convenient set of two small tubes – one for home and one for your purse or desk drawer. The medium to full coverage formula applies easily with fingers, is available in 24 shades and does double duty as a concealer (much appreciated when you’re packing light!) Available at Bergdorf Goodman and www.prescriptives.com.

Too Faced knows that good things come in small packages. And now, volumizing and lengthening mascaras do too. Grab the brand’s Mini Lash Injection and the 3D formula will leave your lashes looking flirtatiously sexy all day long – salt water and sun be damned. Visit www.toofaced.com to purchase.

It’s impossible to feel polished without great brows. Urban Decay’s new Brow Box is tiny – just just 2.25″ x 1.75″ x 1″ – but includes an acceptable pair of mini-tweezers, a mini angled brush, two brow powders (mix for the perfect shade, if necessary) and a stay-put brow wax. Get it at www.urbandecay.com.

The French apparently love tiny things. How do we know? Bourjois has an entire line of minis that really pack a lovely punch. Tuck a few of the 28 available shades of miniature eye shadows and a Mini Effect 3D Mobile Lipgloss or two and you’re ready for anything beauty wise. Visit www.asos.com to purchase.

Last but not least, the key to a beautiful look is having the right tools on hand. Sephora’s limited edition Summer Safari Pocket Brush Set tucks nicely into a 4.75 x 0.5 x 2.5″ rectangle but includes five, count ’em, FIVE must-have brushes. Visit Sephora stores or www.sephora.com to purchase.
