Got an exciting trip coming up? Are you a makeup enthusiastic who has to bring their makeup everywhere?
You may be worried about how to pack makeup. Not only are items fragile, but also expensive. You can ruin hundreds of dollars of makeup in one fell swoop if you’re not careful!
But you don’t need to worry about your upcoming vacation. You deserve to relax, after all. Here, we give you some tips on how to pack makeup so everything will be intact, wherever you go.
Get the Right-Sized Makeup Bag
The size makeup bag you purchase depends on how much makeup you’re planning on bringing.
Bigger isn’t always better. If you’re only bringing an eyeliner and a palette of eyeshadow, but use a huge makeup bag, it’s a disaster waiting to happen. They’ll rattle around and bump against one another, which can break apart your eyeshadow.
Instead, make a tentative list of what you’re planning on bringing and shop around that. Make sure you get a makeup bag that lets everything sit inside securely and snuggly.
Buy Travel-Sized Containers
Do you have a foundation you to bring everywhere, but is in a large tube? Get some travel-sized containers! That way, you can portion it out into travel sizes and bring only what you need.
This will save you tons of space in your luggage, plus make it easier to bring more items in your makeup bag. Putting it in a container instead of a tube also lessens the chances of it leaking due to pressure changes.
Ditch Lipstick for Lip Gloss
If you’re traveling to a hot country, you’ll want to leave your lipstick at home. This is because it can melt while you’re traveling, and you’ll end up with a mess.
By swapping your lipstick for lip gloss, you’ll still get some color on your lips. But without the melting!
Wrap Up Your Makeup Bag
When you’re done putting everything in, consider wrapping your makeup bag in. You can do this by either dropping it into a plastic bag or plastic wrapping it.
This safeguards everything you have in your suitcase. Should any of your products leak, it’ll all be contained within the bag or plastic wrap, instead of all over your clothes.
Cushion Your Makeup Bag
While you’re packing, put your makeup bag in the middle of everything. Bonus points if you have tons of soft clothing or socks surrounding it.
By surrounding your makeup bag in soft items, it’ll get extra protection in case the suitcase gets tossed around.
How to Pack Makeup Securely
Now that you know how to pack makeup securely, you can rest easy knowing your trip won’t be ruined by damaged makeup. With your brushes, powders, and lipsticks all intact, you’ll be able to look fierce whenever you want.
