On The Go Beauty

beauty travel
With the Summer holiday season well under way, chances are you might be jetting off and having to pack a bag. I like to think of myself as somewhat of an expert when it comes to the overnight bag and what beauty products travel well, so here are a few of my favourites to take on the go, and a few tips thrown in for good measure. 

MULTI-TASKING
I love a good multi-tasking product. Who doesn't? When you're travelling with limited space, or you have a hand-luggage only situation, then doubling up is very important. Lipsticks that can be used as blushers are brilliant for example. Eyeshadow palettes are great, and even better if you have matte shades that match your brows, as these can then work instead of taking your normal brow product. For base products, I tend to use a product that will keep my skin hydrated as well as covering those pesky blemishes and under-eye bags. Travel-sized beauty products are somewhat of an obsession of mine. For example, when I found the IT Cosmetics your skin but better colour correcting cream in travel size, I let out a little squeal of joy right in the middle of Sephora!


USING YOUR FINGERS
I'm not sure if this is a great tip or not, but I'll go with it anyways. I try to avoid taking some of my make up brushes with me, as I find they can sometimes be a bit awkward to pack. I tend to keep my ones I use for my base at home, and use my fingertips instead. 

TIPS FOR TRAVELLING
A few things to remember when it comes to packing your beauty products;

Try to avoid packing glass - these are a lot heavier and will use up more of your luggage weight allowance. 
Use up sachets and samples.
Put tape around anything with a lid that comes off easily.
Decant your favourite products into small tubes and spray bottles.
Use sturdy travel pots that won't crack.

There you have it. My tips on packing light in the beauty department. Have I missed anything? Do you have a really good tip worth sharing? I'd love to hear them.
