Can you believe it’s almost Memorial Day? When all stores go into crazy “on-sale” mode and everybody wants to get out of town! I usually work this holiday, but not this year! No ma’am, not me! I am heading to the beach! The past few years of me living in the desert, I had the sizzliest Memorial days EVER! Yes -> Sizzliest. You know, when you faint from the heat and you can hear your skin fry as you try to make your way into the closest Sephora.. But not this year! I live in California now, so I’m ready for my surfing lessons!!
But if you do plan to head out of town, here are just a few tips of packing your favorite beauty products. The key is to travel light and of course leave as much empty space in your luggage as you can! I’m sure you know why.. 🙂
I’ll make everything fit into one fab travel makeup bag!
It took me long days of hunting down to perfect travel bag. First have a plan of what you like in it, than you’ll know what you are actually looking for.
Size matters > Find your favorite product in a travel size edition
I actually love travel size products regardless if I travel or not! It’s awesome to grab a small tube of foundation and just throw it in my bag as I head out the door. (tip -> don’t conceal and drive!)
Shake and break proof > cream blush, powder foundation
Seriously, how many times did you buy an awesome, little pressed powder, blush or even eyeshadow and after the first time of you taking it out for a walk it ends up breaking into powder and messing up your precious shoulder bag?? Don’t you just hate that? But problems be gone! Bring a cream blush and eyeshadow instead! Apply it with your finger and leave the brush at home! Also check out this fabulous Smashbox powder! Guaranteed travel proof! Twist out as much powder through the holes as you need! It’s a travel must!
Label > fill in your favorite creams
Not every product can be found in a portable size. So break some rules, pop open your tubes and fill in some tiny sized bottles. You really don’t need the full can of products anyway. Unless you are planning to leave town for a whole year..
Break the rules > just because you have a brush kit, it doesn’t mean you can only put brushes in it!
If you travel often, have duplicate brushes, tweezers etc, so you can skip this step while you’re going through your packing list.
Keep it sweet, keep it flat!
