Crayon makeup is becoming super trendy in the beauty world. Maybe it's because they're super portable, easy to use and non-messy, or perhaps it's just it's a new way of thinking about makeup.

While crayon makeup is dominated by lip products, it has also ventured into the foundation, concealer, blush and corrector markets. This makes your travel cosmetic bag super easy and super light to pack when you go on holiday as you have everything you need in crayon form.

Flawless Faces With Crayon Makeup

You can now achieve a perfect and glowing complexion with just pencils, making it incredibly handy for on-the-go touch ups. They can be blended with your fingers or a brush depending on your preferences, which make them even better for travelling with! Here are some of our favourites...

The lovely Meg Says also features one of our crayon favourites in her May Favourites video below:

  • 1.Foundation

    4.75 Stars 4 Reviews
    This foundation comes in a great range of shades for each skin tone, which we absolutely love! As it's from Clinique, it's oil free, making it suitable for all skin types. The formula glides over the skin to leave your complexion looking flawless, radiant and even. You can either blend in with your fingers or with a buffing brush, either way gives a gorgeous finish.
  • 2.Concealer

    Pixi are a seriously cool brand, so it's no doubt they have a great selection of crayon makeup. This concealer can be used both under the eyes and to cover imperfections and blemishes to leave you with flawless skin that looks even. They have a range of other shades too, including No 1, No 2 and No 3 depending on your skin tone.
  • 3.Corrector

    If your skin is looking a little dull, sallow and in need of some serious colour correction, then Max Factor has the crayon you need. Although the blue shade might look quite shocking at first, it actually blends in to leave you with a brighter and more even complexion. They also have a nude shade, which can be used to illuminate and highlight if your skin is looking a little fatigued.
  • 4.Blush

    4.72 Stars 25 Reviews
    We might have already featured Clinique, but their Chubby Stick shades are just absolutely gorgeous and we had to include them! Amp'd Up Apple is one of our all time favourites, and even features in the lovely Meg Says May Favourites video. It blends beautifully into the skin with fingers and leaves our cheeks with a gorgeous pop of colour. Perfect for all year round!
  • 5.Lips

    5 Stars 3 Reviews
    Burt's Bees is a brand we love thanks to its gentle and natural skincare formulations, but their makeup is just as brilliant. Their lip crayons come in a selection of 6 shades are are made from 100% natural ingredients. They are enriched with Jojoba Oil to nourish the lips, while their creamy texture glides seamlessly over the lips for a hydrated and glossy finish.
  • 6.Eyeshadow

    4.8 Stars 5 Reviews
    Lancôme are a brand who know a thing or two when it comes to understanding beauty and the ever changing trends. These Eyeshadow sticks come in a range of colours that can be worn alone or blended together for a gorgeous shimmering finish. Opt for the nude Sable Enchanté for daytime wear, or for something a little more daring in the evenings, try Bleu Nuit.  
  • 7.Eyebrow

    5 Stars 2 Reviews
    Eylure have done some seriously cool collaborations, including one with Alexa Chung, so of course they're at the top of their game with crayon makeup. This super blendable Eyebrow Stick helps you to add definition and colour to your eyebrows without it looking too heavy or false. It blends beautifully into your natural hairline, and comes in a wide range of shades to match your natural colour.

You can also check out Clinique’s full version of travel-friendly makeup with their full range of Chubby Sticks.
