Travel Beauty

I’m going on a little trip this weekend to celebrate my birthday, which is on Monday. Since it’s a short trip I don’t want to bring too much with me, only the essentials. I won’t need 8 different eye shadow palettes!

I wanted to share just a few things I’m taking with me.

A case for my contact case.
Say what? A case for a case? Well, I really couldn’t pass up this cute case from Charming Charlie. It  holds my contact case and has a mirror inside. On top of that, it’s sparkly!

I really like having it with me. I don’t have to worry about my actual contact case coming undone, leaking, or getting lost among my stuff.

Sample products and travel sizes
This is where I dig into my box o’ samples and choose what I want to use for the weekend. Samples take up little space and I don’t have to worry about leaving them behind.
I get to try new products and  use up some of my samples! I definitely need to dig into that sample box more often. It’s kind of overflowing.
I would mind leaving the larger travel products behind.  There’s a lot of product in each and some of them are reusable, like the Secret Wonderland body wash.
Small eye shadow palette
When I travel, I don’t want to have to take individual pots of eyeshadow  that will just take up room. It’s nice to have a palette that I can get different looks from. I still have options, but it keeps it down to one simple, slim product. 
Small cosmetic bag for bath items
I have tons of little cosmetic bags that I keep on hand for travel. I’ll use one that I don’t mind getting wet for my bath products and another for extra little things. For me, it works better than having a big bag with everything. Just a personal preference. You can find little cosmetic/bath bags for $1.99 at Target (and maybe even cheaper elsewhere).
What are your travel tips for beauty products?

    I totally agree on the things that you have mentioned here. When travelling I normally just bring out samples or small palettes so that it can only eat up some small space. Great picks!

      Definitely. Space is key when travelling, especially for shopping on vacation!
