Makeup Packing Tips: My Travel Essentials

It’s that time of the year again: in a few days I’ll be leaving for my summer vacation. YESSSSS! The one thing I hate about traveling is packing; every time, I find myself wishing I were Merlin the Wizard in ‘The Sword in the Stone’ (please, tell me you know what I’m talking about).

Thank God for Ryanair who taught me to downsize my luggage, otherwise I would be traveling like a Jane Austen character going to Brighton for the summer: instead of the 10 kg trolley case, picture a huge trunk that could hold all my earthly possessions as well as myself, comfortably.

But let’s get to the point here. I have an almost infallible system to pack my travel makeup bag: I review in my mind my default makeup routine and pack the relevant product for each step.

Below, you’ll find a list of the items I’ll bring on my beach vacation, in my usual order of application.
