Travel can be stressful, especially when you consider the fact that many of us are travelling with super spillable products that have the potential to destroy the rest of our stuff. If you’re like me, even when you try to stay neat and efficient when packing hair and makeup products, you still somehow end up with way more than you ever actually need and way less order than you ever intended.
Packing is difficult enough without having to worry about which beauty products you might need when you are away. The secret is to travel light and pack multi-tasking products which will save precious space in your suitcase.
This Thursday I’ll be in Paris for the Premiere of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, and I can’t wait, am beyond excited. So I’m needing to pack light but pack well… here are a few tips and tricks I’ve found to help me over the years…
Get A Good Makeup Bag
Space NK Travel Bag, £24, Space NK
No more plastic baggies for you. This case is the ideal size for carry-on only and comes in black, blue and yellow to suit your traveling mood. Weekends jaunts just became manageable.
Make A List
If you’re ready to step your game up but don’t want to waste space on unnecessary items, you’ve got your own back. You need to get organised and round up the must-have items—nothing more, nothing less.
Plan Around Your Outfits
You don’t need to bring it ALL – pick out makeup that matches with the few outfits that you’re taking. Less really is more.
Use Multi-Purpose Products
Think eyebrow and eyeliner pencil duo. Face wash and body wash in one. Lip tint/blusher combo. Whatever it is to make it simpler is the way to go.
Bring Facial Wipes Instead Of Facial Wash
Bioderma’s Sensibio H20 wipes, which retail at £7.10 in most UK high street stores. Why? Victoria Beckham swears by them.
Use Reusable Travel Bottles
