Makeup has become an important part of our daily routine. Whether it is just going to a cafe with our friends or going to work every day, we have our favourite looks that we try to recreate to look the best. Although traveling with makeup is not very hard, there are still a few things that you need to keep in mind when packing your bags.
In this post, we are going to talk about how to pack makeup for your coming holidays, which products you should keep in handy, the best containers that you can use, and much more.
The first step is to keep your makeup in a plastic bag just in case things happen. No one wants their clothes or toiletries ruined because of their makeup, so invest in a good leak-proof bag before your trip. A leak-proof bag for your makeup is essential when traveling with your cosmetics, no matter whether you prefer liquid or powdered.
If you are packing makeup in a carry-on, make sure that all liquids are packed in 3.4oz or smaller containers. Top tips for packing makeup for a trip include:
– Keeping liquids 3.4 ounces or less.
– Packing all bottles into one-quart bags.
– Keeping makeup choices to a minimum.
– Keeping the items that you have in one purse consolidated.
Having a one-size-fits-all makeup kit makes packing easier, and you will have less stuff to think about while packing. You can just put your travel makeup essentials into your little bag containing the basic items, and you’ll be ready to go on a short trip.
Put your makeup in your carry-on bag if it is a separate item; otherwise, place it in the checked bag. Use the clear carry-on pouch to hold your liquids, and throw any remaining dried cosmetics into a flowery purse.
If you are using an acrylic makeup organizer or another clear bag, it is easier to see what is inside each bag and find the exact piece of makeup you are looking for in no time. Rummaging through your bags of more than just makeup and searching for that one perfect lip shade or eyeliner can become a major headache. The last thing you want is to be digging through your purse or carry-on bag to ensure that you find all of your makeup and liquids while in the busy security line.
On top of all of your other travel accessories, your carry-on may not have room in it to fit in tons of tools and cosmetics that you have. Whether you are traveling light in your carry-on bag or going all-out with a suitcase, you are going to want to make sure that your makeup arrives just as safely as you did. Remember, you will have to lug everything you want to bring, including your travel-sized beauty products, around, so simplify where possible.
If possible, try and pack a smaller, compact makeup brush kit with you when you go on holiday. It is also a good idea to pack minimal makeup as much as possible and to split larger products into smaller bottles. Think about whether you will need to take your foundation and concealer with you and seek out beauty products that also offer skincare benefits.
With the right information and a good makeup bag, you will be able to keep your healthy skincare routine intact and bring all of your makeup products with you wherever you go. While you do not need to carry cream-based makeup products, using them in place of powders means that you will not need to pack tools, you will be able to use just your fingertips. Cream-based makeup products are less prone to breaking down than compact powders, making them a better choice for travellers.
As far as the types of makeup go, less is often better, and you can be quite creative with just a couple of staple pieces. If you are going for a natural makeup look, you can definitely ditch that electric blue eyeliner. To get more creative with your choices, you can also carry some colored eye contacts with you to look more stylish. The color contact lenses might become a game changer for you, especially when going for a no-makeup look, as they can enhance your beauty, which in turn, would boost your confidence.
For your urban trips, you can take a travel palette with you that includes not just eyeshadows but also blushes and highlighters in order to minimize the amount of makeup that you would have to carry. Pack the easiest, travel-friendly, long-lasting makeup to make sure that you can always look the best.
In a nutshell, try to pack all your makeup essentials and keep the items limited. On holidays, you wouldn’t get a lot of time to continue with your entire skincare routine or spend hours recreating the picture-perfect look. The less is more approach will help you to look more beautiful and give you more time to spend with your family and friends.
