Wrinkled clothes, missing socks, and a crushed makeup kit are the worst nightmare of any traveling fashionista. You worry about what to pack, and something always gets left behind because let’s face it: there’s no suitcase big enough! Beauty hacks for traveling
Well, ladies, to end your packing difficulties, we’ve compiled a list of the most useful tips for traveling with style and simplicity. Let’s take a look at what you can do to pack smarter, and make some of your favorite items even more useful.
Easy to use, good for your skin and light on your baggage – it’s the perfect recipe for simplified packing. Minimalism has taken the world by storm and its increasing popularity helps brands design multifunctional makeup, such as a lipstick that doubles as a blush and eye shadow.
Or you can even learn how to apply mascara as eyeliner (the key word here is carefully!), to shorten your packing checklist.
You can also find tubes of skin/lip balms that can help you with dry, chapped lips and nourish your irritated skin. Make sure to look for a lotion with natural ingredients that is suitable for keeping your hands, body and face well-hydrated.
Do you have an extra pill container or a mint tin lying around? Use it to pack your smallest jewelry items like rings and stud earrings. This way, you’ll be able to find them quickly.
As for your intricate necklaces, you can use a jewelry roll to avoid tangling. A real life-saver. If you don’t have one, layering them between sheets of kitchen cling wrap will help you keep your necklaces neat and protected. Or, slide your necklace through a plastic straw to prevent knotting.
If you fold your bras in half and place them all into each other, you still have a bit of room to use for other items. For example, you can fold several pairs of underwear and put them in the open cup of your bra, saving you you a ton of space!
Packing a pair of shoes or sneakers? Put your socks in them! If you want extra protection, put your socks in thin plastic bags first to keep them clean, while still saving space.
You can also protect fragile items like perfume bottles by placing them in your socks.
You’ve probably reused bottles as temporary vases, and jars as jewelry containers or for keeping tiny items in one place, like buttons or thread. How about your old toothbrush? Use it to comb your eyebrows, perk up your lips, or even styling your hair.
Instead of separate makeup removal items, you can use cotton sticks and hydrating lotion. In case of an emergency zit, apply a dab of toothpaste instead of your blemish cream. That’s one less item you can leave at home.
Skip packing your shaving cream, wax beforehand, and for those spots that need regular care, you can use hair conditioner instead of shaving cream. It will perfectly protect your skin from the razor burn!
In addition to extra compartments and multipurpose items, roll your clothes instead of folding them. This will give you much more room for extra items. For more space, get rid of any added pouches or bags, because you can pack smaller things into all the nooks of your travel luggage.
Start by placing your chunkiest, largest items on the bottom of your bag, it makes it easier for you to compress them in the overhead compartment. Remember to wear your heaviest items, such as your coat and your bulky shoes, you can take them off as soon as you’re on the plane, bus or train, and even use the coat as a comfy pillow!
Enjoy your trip and safe travels!
