Not only does this portable, preservative-free pencil swipe away errant eyeliner, eye shadow and mascara, it does it all without uncomfortably tugging on skin, thanks to jojoba seed oil, and also conditions skin with chamomile flower extract. (While we'd never recommend sleeping with your makeup on, we'll also admit it's perfect for eliminating any post-sexy-sleepover raccoon eyes.)

And, its uses go beyond eye makeup: This nifty little pen can help refresh your foundation and concealer if it gets splotchy or creased.

The Luxe Makeup Remover That's Perfect for Travel
Givenchy Mister Perfect Instant Makeup Eraser High Definition, $31

Some people prefer to fly sans makeup -- seeing as how I refuse to go to the gym without a bit of mascara on, I clearly don't fall into this category.

That's why this luxe little guy is a lifesaver, and always finds its way into my carry-on. Made with skin-soothing fig extract and a cleanser derived from coconut, it brushes away any smudges, creases or smears that may occur while you were snoozing.

It conveniently comes with three spare tips, should you be especially prone to makeup mistakes (or spontaneous naps).
