Here are my top tips for how to pack your sacred beauty items for when you travel to keep them in tact.
Protecting your makeup powders:
To protect my powder blushes, highlighters and bronzers when I travel I use cotton pads inside the product to protect the powder when below in the hold of the plane!
Protecting your liquid makeup:
I like to add cello-tape to products like foundation and bb cream lids to prevent spillages into your suitcase. Something I like to do is decant some of my liquid makeup into a smaller container so I don’t have a big bottle of bb cream or foundation that I don’t need.
Replace your mascara for a waterproof one:
Perfect for if you like wearing makeup for the day but have fears of sweating it off! When I need a good waterproof mascara I always go back to Too Faced’s Better than Sex Mascara- it gives you big fluttery lashes without the need for eyelash extensions.
Minimise it into palettes:
I like to take palettes when I travel as they are space saving and can give you options to cover your day and night look. I love palettes that contain blush, highlight and contour/bronzer.
I love to use the contour/bronzer colour for my eyeshadow when I’m travelling or on holiday as I don’t like too much on my eyes when I’m away!
Get a good makeup bag:
Investing in a good makeup bag for when you travel is important as you can use it over again for other trips. I would recommend getting a plastic interior as it is easier to clean if anything spills.
Multi- purpose products
Multi-purpose products are great for minimising your makeup bag for travel. I particularly like lip and cheek sticks as they are perfect and leave your skin matching with your lips!
