Carrying a complete makeup kit doesn't have to weigh down your trip. "Companies are creating dual-purpose products that are perfect for travelers," says New York–based celebrity makeup artist Kristofer Buckle. Here, our picks for globe-trotting beauty. Moisturizer This sheer tinted Laura Mercier (2) ($42; takes the place of a day cream, sunscreen, and foundation—and covers imperfections.

Bronzer Look for a product with several distinct colors. You can wear the individual shades on your eyes and cheeks—even your lips if you put a balm or clear gloss over it. The Coral compact from Chantecaille (1) ($69; works on many different skin tones. The Lancaster (3) Sunlight Palette ($35;, with its five browns, is equally versatile.

Eyes To go from day to night with the same product, try the Paula Dorf (5) 2+1 for Eyes ($24;, which comes with a shadow, a contouring shade, and a liner.

Lips and Cheeks Your lip and cheek color can also hit a dual note. Stains provide a natural, flushed look and are ideal for hot weather, because they are sweatproof. This one from Jemma Kidd (4) ($37.50;; makes application easy with its user-friendly roller ball. If you want more color, the Benefit (6) Rush Hour crayon($20;; has a richer look and a hydrating cream base.
