I’m not a big fan of de-potting and decanting, but with a magnetic de-potting clutch this cute, complete with drop-down mirror, I just may have to learn to de-pot my favorite eye shadows and blushes. DollUp Case Best Makeup Organizer, $52.

With foundation and sunscreen soaked into a cushion, which lets me bypass the TSA’s 3-oz. liquid limitation, my favorite cushion compact is now even better, with brightening magnolia and licorice extracts. Sulwhasoo Perfecting Cushion Brightening, $65.

Pure argan oil in an eyeliner? You’d think it’d be one hot mess, but this not only goes on effortlessly, especially in the waterline, it lasts and lasts. Physicians Formula Argan Wear Ultra Nourishing Argan Oil Kohl Kajal Eyeliner, $9.95.

The less liquids I have to bring, the better. These swabs are infused with olive oil for easy makeup removal. DHC Olive Virgin Oil Swabs, $6.
