Want more travel beauty? Lauren, our travel beauty expert, is already whipping up her next concoction post!

Nowadays with my busy mom/work/travel schedule, I’m drawn to anything that does double duty or works in a flash. Bonus points if it makes me look like I’ve had more than four hours of sleep. Below I've chosen a few of my favorite {read: cult status!} timeless beauty products for TS, which have flown the test of time for me and many other industry insiders. Don’t forget to pack them!

1/ Smith’s Rosebud Salve This multitasking balm---held in the cutest vintage-looking tin---smells like fresh rose petals. In addition to healing and softening dry, chapped lips {as well as cuticles, elbows and rough patches}, it creates the prettiest sheen. Gorgeous worn alone for a natural look or applied on top of a lip color to add shine.

2/ Nars Blush in Orgasm There's a reason almost e-v-e-r-y makeup artist carries this blush in their kit and e-v-e-r-y beauty editor swears by it: it has a shimmery, peachy-pink perfection that suits all skin tones {and brightens the face after a multi-hour flight}.

3/ Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream A tube of this potion is sold every 30 seconds! It has over 10 different uses, like smoothing brows, calming sunburns, and soothing skin post-wax to name a few. However, my favorite way is to use it is apply a tiny dab pre-flight to keep my skin hydrated, allowing me to deplane glowing.

4/ Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey A classic since its debut in 1971, Black Honey is a natural-looking, sheer berry tint that is not quite lipstick and not quite gloss. It was all the rage in the '90s and is still a top seller today. Beautiful worn alone or layered over lip color.
