Confessions of a beauty editor: There is nothing more difficult than choosing which makeup products are worthy of traveling with you on your next weekend getaway or even on a long day of running errands. Digging through our massive piles of makeup and finding what we’ll need throughout the day usually leads to us taking a book bag filled with beauty products all deemed equally important for those just-in-case moments. But let’s be real, we don’t end up using half of those products, and more often than not, we still forget that one item that we desperately need. Enter all-in-one makeup palettes. The ultimate solution that will make packing makeup so much easier. Read on for six all-in-one makeup palettes you need in your life.
