Miniature Makeup Must Haves

By Kerri Winick and Andrea Krivelow

Dry lips. A broken nail. Fading eyeshadow. Have you been the victim of a beauty emergency? We all have those "problem solvers" we just can't live without when we walk out the door. But let's be serious. It's not always easy (or practical) to stuff your pockets silly with deluxe sizes of your favorite products.

Beauty minis are a great way to solve life's pretty problems and still have space to spare for the necessities…like your ID and keys! They're also perfect for traveling (most are airplane approved) and a great way to sample something new without overspending. Here are some of our favorite miniature-must-haves:
