Spring and Summer are the seasons during which I most heavily rely on my favorite makeup palettes. This is my favorite time of year to travel, and when packing products, I turn to some jam-packed compacts to cut down on makeup bag bulk.
This year's crop of kits is especially appealing: there are stunning face sets for contouring, highlighting, or adding a sexy flush. (I typically pack five to six different blushes and bronzers for a long weekend, so I'm excited for these new items!) Multifunctional petite lip palettes add a kiss of color to your pout and your cheeks. And, of course, there are plenty of gorgeous shadow compacts to choose from.
Read on to shop some of my top picks, but don't blame me if you end up bringing them all on vacation — they're so pretty, it's worth paying extra to check your luggage!
