Must-Haves for Packing a Light Makeup Bag for Travel



Do you think you could narrow your makeup bag down to 10 items or less? The fact of the matter is, packing makeup for travel can be stressful. You’re trying to throw in anything you may be in the mood to wear, products that are easy to store, all without going overboard.

Instead of trying to stuff every go-to you can think of into your travel makeup bag, being thoughtful about picking products will allow you to seriously streamline. From double duty to compact and cute, these picks— which are carry-on friendly, too— will help you pack light while still traveling with everything you need for a full face.

This foundation is great for all skin types, and offers buildable coverage to deliver on both light makeup days or for full face glam. It’s comfortable, contains SPF 20 to add sun protection, and has a fresh skin finish that’s neither matte nor dewy, but naturally radiant.

When traveling, you want to bring a concealer that can do it all. This gem of a concealer is full coverage and long lasting, and will hide undereye bags or blemishes without contest. It has a matte finish that doesn’t look dry or crease, which also makes it great for using as part of your eyeshadow routine as either a primer or to help cut you crease.

Instead of packing a brow pencil, pomade and gel, bring along a product that can help define and hold in one step. This brow gel is heavy duty— pigmented, long lasting and waterproof to boot. The angled brush helps you shape your brows while the spool brushes the product through, and as it sets you won’t have to worry about a hair out of place.

A neutral palette is always the way to go when you’re trying to pack a light travel makeup bag since it will be versatile enough for any situation. I love the 12-pan palettes from Milani. While compact, they house enough shades for a ton of different looks and include a large mirror that will help with your entire routine.

As someone who hardly ever skips tightlining, I need both a pencil and liquid liner for most of my looks. To eliminate the need to pack multiples and juggling products, this 2-in-1 takes care of all my lining needs! This double ended liner has both a liquid felt-tip for precise cat eyes, and a twist-up crayon pencil for either the waterline or smoking out on the lid.

While it’d be a stretch to say that this is a one-mascara-fits-all situation, but the Flourish by LashBlast mascara lifts, separates, volumizes and lengthens all while looking natural without clumpiness. It’s great for everyday drama: it’s not over the top, but definitely adds noticeable definition to enhance your eyes.

Packing individual compacts for your contour, blush and highlight products can get really bulky. Pack a sleek palette that will give you everything you need to finish up the face. Choose one with a neutral blush color that you can layer up for more dramatic looks, or blend out for a subtle wash of color. This palette from Maybelline comes in two versions to cover most skin tones: Light/Medium and Medium/Deep.

These have been my favorite travel lipsticks for years now. Double ended lipsticks allow you to pack a larger variety shades so that you don’t feel limited without weighing your travel makeup bag down.

‘My Fair Lady’ in Syracuse offers power and beauty, star says



Laird Mackintosh regards the part of Professor Henry Higgins in the classic Lerner & Lowe musical “My Fair Lady” as one of “the Mount Everest roles in the repertory of a singing actor.”

And yet most people familiar with the 1964 movie featuring actor Rex Harrison in the part may remember the character sort of talking his way through a big chunk of the songs.

But that’s part of the challenge and the achievement of the role, said Mackintosh, the Canadian actor who steps into Higgins shoes in a new Broadway in Syracuse presentation of “My Fair Lady” at the downtown Landmark Theatre from Dec. 10 to 13. (Details below).

The “speak-singing” role was written for Harrison, who originated it on stage but was best known as a dramatic actor at the time. He uses the technique in such songs as “Why Can’t the English?” and “I’m An Ordinary Man.”

“Because it was written in that speak-sing, it’s written in a narrow range,” Mackintosh said during a break from rehearsal at the Landmark last week. “So it really doesn’t benefit you to sing the entire thing because you can get more range in some of the speaking notes than in the singing notes.

“So I do speak-sing a lot of it and it just comes out better that way.” he said. “It was intended to be done that way. And we found there’s more life in it if it’s performed that way.”

Still, he said, Higgins’ role is not all talk. He illustrates that during an interview with a few lines from the song “I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face.”

“There are some beautiful melodies he (Higgins) gets to sing and I do sing them,” he said.

This production of “My Fair Lady” is part of a national tour from New York City’s Lincoln Center Theater, and presented locally by Famous Artists through its Broadway in Syracuse series. The production started on Broadway in 2018.

Actor Laird Mackintosh plays Professor Henry Higgin in the Broadway in Syracuse production of “My Fair Lady” at the Landmark Theatre in Syracuse Dec. 10-13, 2019.

Mackintosh made his Broadway debut playing Mr, Banks in Mary Poppins in 2011, and also performed in Broadway productions of “The Phantom of the Opera” and “Jekyll & Hyde.” The Syracuse performance is his first time in the Henry Higgins role, though he played supporting character Freddy Eynsford-Hill about 20 years ago in Canada.

He said he’s well prepared for a lead role in “My Fair Lady.”

When he was growing up in Calgary, Alberta, his father had just two musical theater recordings — one cast recording of “South Pacific” and another of “My Fair Lady,” with Harrison and Julie Andrews.

“I’ve really had the show memorized from the time I was 12 years old,” he said.

He notes that for much of the show Higgins is a pretty disagreeable character. The plot centers on a London professor who boasts (and bets) he can turn an ordinary flower girl (Eliza Doolittle) into a posh woman — in large part by teaching her to speak better English and behave like a “proper lady.”

It’s a take on the male-female relationship that could seem dated to some modern audiences.

But Mackintosh thinks the strength of the writing takes care of that. “My Fair Lady” was written by Alan Jay Lerner, with music by Frederick Lowe, and based on a 1913 play called “Pygmalion” by George Bernard Shaw. The original Broadway musical version debuted in 1956.

“The character (Higgins) does say some pretty terrible things about Eliza,” Mackintosh said. “But if you remove any of that you take out the power of the argument and the power of the show.”

Mackintosh and the cast and crew have spent more than a week in Syracuse preparing for the show, much of it in the Landmark, which says has a beauty to match that of the show’s costumes, sets and musical score..

“It’s as good as it gets to be able to rehearse in that kind of space, to do shows in a theater like that,” he said. “I’m so grateful it’s here, that the city was able to preserve that theater. It’s a dream to perform here.”


What: “My Fair Lady,” the national touring production from New York City’s Lincoln Center Theater, presented locally by Famous Artists through its Broadway in Syracuse series.

Where: Landmark Theatre, 362 S. Salina St., Syracuse.

When: 7:30 p.m. Dec. 10, 11, 12 and 13.
