Tutorial Tuesday - Packing Makeup for Vacation

So today's Tutorial, isn't really a tutorial.  It's more how I pack my makeup for my long trip but you may be able to take some of my ideas and use it for your next trip!

This is all I use for all of my make up needs.

Here is all the makeup I take with me:

  • Acne treatment cream
  • Medicated eye drops for itch relief
  • Ulta Face Primer
  • Urban Decay Eye Primer Potion
  • Maybeline Fit Me Foundation
  • Colorscience Face Powder
  • Benefit Boi-ng
  • Benfit Hoola
  • E.L.F. Shimmery Bronzer
  • Makeup Sponge
  • Maybeline Blush
  • Mary K Blush
  • Laura Geller Blush
  • MARK Blush
  • Sephora Gel Liner
  • E.L.F. liquid eyeliner
  • Bare Esscentuals Brow Filler
  • MAC Kohl Pencil
  • Marbella Permanent Eye Liner Pen
  • Blinc Mascara
  • Sephora Anniversary Palette - The best thing to do when travel is bring a large palette like this. That way you are not having to bring a lot of little palettes with you.

I use the smaller makeup travel bag to place all the little items in.

I use the large makeup bag to hold the large palette just in case it gets tossed around.  

Are you all wondering where my lipsticks are?!?!?  This is how I pack those (and some other things).

I bought this plastic container from the dollar store.  It use to hold (as you can see) cotton items such as, cotton balls, and sticks.  I dumped those out and filled it with these:

The top closes and it allows for all these little items to have a place with out moving.  It helps them travel very nicely!  (P.S. I also have some correction sticks in there too!)

And there you have it.  What little tips and tricks do you use to pack your makeup for the sake of space and safety?


  1. So much make-up, in the summer time I go all natural :).

    1. I do limit during the summer months but I always have it with me just in case. Actually, there was a day last week we were out and in the sun all day. All the boys got their face burned but us girls, who have makeup on w/SPF were safe! So it's not always a bad thing to wear makeup during the summer months! haha =)
