For most of us make-up has become an inseparable part of our lives. Be it running a quick errand at the nearest market or dressing up for an occasion. From a basic kohl and lip-gloss for a casual look to an elaborate 2 hours makeover session for that special day. A lunch session with the gal pals or a date with the special one. Best friends bachelors party to cousins wedding day. We all love to have our make-up and beauty products around. We love to carry it with us, wherever we go.
But traveling can restrict me from carrying a lot of my favorite stuff. I may carry most of my stuff but yet miss the favorite lipstick I left behind in my dresser drawer thinking I may not use it. How do you organise your travel makeup and beauty kit? How do you prioritize?
I follow a few tips on that help me set my travel make-up kit ready.
Sort essentials –
I always sort out what is my must haves for the travel and what I can do without. For example – I have to carry my 3 step skin care, anti aging serum , hand cream, body lotion, lip balm. With regards to make-up I need my kohl, eyelash curler, mascara, travel size brushes, nude lipstick, bb cream, eye-shadow primer.
Organize as per the occasion and look I want to achieve –
Depending on what are I am dressing for and what look I want to achieve I pack my make-up. For Example – For a typical Indian day wedding I would not miss out on warm color eye shadow palette, darkest kohl I have, peachy or pink blush for the sunny effect and my sunscreen lotion. For a bachelors night out with friends I would definitely need my smokey eye palette, nude lipstick , highlighter and flush pink blush.
Carry miniatures –Makeup Travel Tips:-
To get the right look with the makeup, accessories play a pivotal part. The powder blushes need blush brushes. Eye makeup needs a set of brushes depending on how you plan to do up your eyes. Mascaras don’t perform the best without curling the eyelashes. I carry miniatures of these essentials. For example, I carry mini eyelash curler, mini travel make-up brushes and eyeshadow palettes instead of individual eye-shadows.
Refill in travel size kits –
I don’t like to skip the beauty or make-up routine because I may not get the look I would like to achieve with my skin is not feeling up to it. I ensure I carry my skin care and beauty essentials with me whenever I travel. It’s like food for the skin. I ask for sampler of the full size products that I buy and use them as my travel companions. If they are refillable I ensure I refill them. Many drug stores have these kits that have small refillable bottles that’s permissible for air travel. They could also be a good option. Else I use small used (clean) bottles to refill.
Use make-up pouches
‘ I reach my travel destination and just when I am getting ready for a beach party , I open my luggage to find that my opened eye-shadow palette and broken eyeliner have dyed my favorite peach colored sarong like a tie-n-dye dupatta’. Gosh!!! What a nightmare it could turnout. You never know how your baggage is handled during your journey. I always carry my make up in plastic/plastic coated pouches. They not only organize my makeup for easy access but also save me from any damage or pilferage and look very very cute.
