How to Pack the Perfect Beauty Bag for Summer Travel
While travelling, the makeup bag is the last time we have our focus on. We are usually running late and we throw in the things in our makeup bag without thinking if we need that or not. Summer is almost around the corner and various trips are planned for the vacation. Below are a few tips that you can follow for your perfect summer beauty bag ideal for travel.
Don’t waste your money on travel-sized products
They are a complete rip-off. You are paying a lot of money for a very little product. This is to be applied to all beauty products. We don’t like to spend our money on travel-sized products especially shampoos and conditioners. Rather than spending on travel sized products, spend on makeup bags and pouches for better organization.
Carry stick foundations and stick primers
It is easier to carry stick foundations instead of liquid foundations. It is better than any powder or any other form of foundation. It can even be used as a concealer so you can yet again skip another tube or a bottle. Good examples are from Makeup forever (HD stick) and the hourglass stick foundation. Same is the case with primers, it is difficult to carry tubes as they might leak away and ruin the entire bag. Sticks are easy to apply and manage. Primers are important for oil control and for minimizing pores on the skin. Therefore it is a must-have!
We all know the importance of this one. If your face looks bland with no colour on it, you’re probably missing out on this one. For travel, you must carry something that’s small and not powdery. It is easier to carry cream blushes and stick blushes because you can apply the tint with your fingers and you’re good to go. The Benefit’s stick blush is the best for it.
After putting on foundation, one must understand their skin type. If you have oily skin, you will surely have an oily T zone or traces of oil on your face after the application of a foundation. It is important that you keep your skin oil free and fresh throughout the day by the application of a pressed powder. Use a brush and apply it on the bridge of your nose, between the eyebrows and on the chin.
Forgetting this one should be considered a crime. It is important to smell nice during the summers when you are sweating and stinking. Make sure you carry a deodorant with yourself or your favourite perfume to get you through the day. Carrying a glass bottle is a no go; purchase a portable perfume atomizer if you want to protect your perfume. It is a great tool even when you are not travelling.
