If you spend a sizeable chunk of your paycheck buying Huda Beauty Faux Filter Foundation and Urban Decay Born to Run Eyeshadow Palette, you’re probably too scared to ruin them on a flight. We’re here to tell you that you can pack your makeup safely even on a 24-hours flight.
Here are some tips:
Make a list
Making a list helps you ensure that you don’t forget anything. You don’t want to reach your destination only to find out that you’ve left your favorite foundation brush at home. Start with the makeup essentials that you would need to freshen up your look on the flight. Then go to your everyday essentials, including face products, skincare, and hair care products. Write down any accessories that go with your everyday look, for instance, the pins, hair sprays, and brushes. You also need to note any additional items that you need to get ready for a special dinner or meeting—if you have one planned. After you’re done, take a thorough look at the list and think of what you can do without.
Get multi-purpose products for the trip
When you’re traveling, you need to pack smartly! Think of how you can create multiple looks by playing around with the products and making slight changes. Lipsticks are easy to carry—you can take as many as you want to.
If the blush palette is too big, you can always skip it and blend out some lipstick as a cheek stain. Your shimmery eye shadow can also work as a skin highlighter. Besides, you don’t need a primer if your moisturizer is good enough to prep up the skin. Use some cotton and extra clothing to pad up the makeup box. Pour your shampoos, lotions, and conditioners in small reusable travel boxes.
Get a nice makeup kit bag
A good makeup pouch offers sizeable storage space for all of your makeup and skincare essentials. Most of them are reusable, washable, and even leak-proof. You don’t need to worry about spilling some of that foundation all over your luggage. They’re also extremely compact, travel-friendly, and easy-to-carry. There are also a variety of designs to choose from, including some custom-designed prints. Even better, get your initials embroidered on the bag, so you don’t misplace it.
