Makeup is very flimsy and delicate to carry around especially if you are travelling. You can very easily spill if break it and it will definitely cost white a few bucks to replace. After long hours of travel, the last thing you need to spend a few more hours wiping makeup off your belongings. Luckily there are quite ways to prevent your makeup from getting destroyed and in this article, we have listed out a few tips regarding the same
1. HAVE A GOOD MAKEUP BAG
One of the best protective measures when it comes to storing makeup is to have a good makeup bag. It prevents any spillage of makeup on your belongings and makes for stress-free and very efficient packing of makeup before trips. The presence of pockets especially, helps you store all your brushes properly instead of throwing everything together in a disorganised, messy way. Make sure to also purchase a bag with a plastic interior so it’s easier to clean makeup off it, should it spill.
2. MAKE A LIST:
To ensure that you are organised and hassle-free while travelling, make sure that you prepare a list beforehand of everything that you will need. This includes ALL your beauty products like lipstick shades, brushes, palettes and anything else that could come in handy. Making such lists will save you a lot of time and trouble in the long run.
3. PLAN AROUND YOUR OUTFITS:
Try to pack your makeup after taking into consideration the outfits you plan on wearing while travelling. This will ensure that you don’t carry more than you really need and end up with a huge number of brushes and palettes that you won’t even use.
4. USE MULTI PURPOSE PRODUCTS:
Use multi-purpose products which will prevent you from carrying much more products than what you need. For instance, a pale, shimmery eyeshadow can easily act as a good highlighter, a lipstick can act as a cheek stain and a blush or bronzer can work as an eyeshadow or lip colour as well. This will save you a lot of space and confusion.
5. USE FACE WIPES INSTEAD OF A FACE WASH:
Replace your bulky and spillable bottle of face wash with a stack of face wipes. These wash off makeup and any dirt just as easily as a face wash and leaves you feeling moisturised and fresh. They are also much lighter and easier to carry around while travelling and saves you a good deal of space.
6. CUSHION YOUR COMPACTS AND BRONZERS:
Your compacts and bronzers are the most likely to break down into little chunks of powder, thus, make sure that you cushion them properly before travelling with either the sponge that comes with it or a ball of cotton.
