Deciding what items of clothing, which pair of black heeled
sandals or how many bikinis you can squeeze into each pair of said sandals into
a carry on is like pulling up your fave pair of jeans that have shrunk over the
years. Difficult and stressful. BUT packing your makeup into a suitcase that
couldn’t even fit all of your makeup in is even harder. I’m flying to Ibiza in
the early hours of today; in fact I may be sitting by the pool rn. Sorry, bit
harsh? It was a £70 return to visit my family for a few nights that are there
for SIX weeks… Do you blame me?
Anyway, it has taken me a while to decide what makeup to
take in my little carry on… I had to think logically and realistically. So as I
was thinking logically and realistically, I noted down some things that could
help you fit BOTH pairs of black heeled sandals, yay.
Before you move anything into a makeup bag, organise your
own products. You will be able to see all the hot pink lipsticks together so
you won’t accidently pack two.
Think about what you need to take and how much. Look for one
with pockets that opens out so you can see everything. Try and choose one what
is plastic on the inside so you can wipe clean any mess.
Don’t worry; I’m not going to talk about maths. It is a
holiday after all, so you may want the natural look. You may not need your
palette of shadows that contain 13 brown shades and your palette that contains
browns and colours. It’s a no brainer.
Leave The Pointy
Things At Home
You’re going on a short trip, make sure you eyebrows are
plucked, legs and bikini line are shaved and don’t forget under your arms!
Pack Everything In
Pop your makeup bag in near the end and make sure it’s in
the middle with plenty of padding around it; this will lessen the chance of
anything smashing and defeating the point of this whole post.
Plan Your Colours
Around Your Outfits
Make sure you look at the colours of the items you are
taking and pick makeup that obviously compliments them. This will ensure you’re
not taking a dark blush you won’t use.
Split Dem Liquids
From The Solids
It’ll be easier when one of the airport staff shouts in your
face “REMOVE LIQUIDS FROM BAGS PLEASE!” Like yes lady, ok, we’re sorry. They
don’t half scare me! Remember that mascara is a liquid!
Failing this, you could always spend £20 on a suitcase so
you can take your entire collection. But what’s the fun in that? Take items you
don’t use as much and get out of your makeup comfort zone (I know we all have
