#PackingProblems: Makeup Addiction

Y'all know me. You know I have a makeup/beauty product addiction. The first step is admitting you have a problem and I really really do. Surprisingly, packing clothing was much easier in comparison to this mess that I dealt with, with packing makeup for 9 days in rain, humidity, and cold. It was a definite struggle, but I finally was satisfied as of last night. I really wanted to stay very low maintenance during the day time, but still have the option to dress up my makeup for night time. I consider these products truly the bare minimum for me. For this trip, I decided that taking my Sonia Kashuk Weekender Cosmetic Bag was the best option because of all of the great compartments it has. I will be tossing this bad boy in my Longchamp (my carry on).

I'm going to break it down by the two big zippered sections and then by product types themselves. I'd say this is also a favorites post of sorts because these are obviously my favorites enough that I can't live without them for 9 days. ;) You'll also notice that in one of the compartments, I have a ziplock of misc. products. Those are my "liquids," so that I can easily access them when I get to the security checkpoint. I highly recommend this if you're carrying your makeup on. When in doubt, call it a liquid because you don't want your favorite product getting tossed at the airport.

Back section- one clear pocket (face and palettes), brush compartment

Front section- two removable clear pouches that velcro to the side (lips & eyes)

Sleeve- Quart sized ziplock with liquids

The key to knowing if you've packed everything you need is to use only your bag of items for a few days prior to the trip. I hope this was helpful and that you found my #PackingProblems series useful. Check out all of the posts from the beginning below!
