5 Tips to Narrow Down Makeup For Short Trips

Whenever I go on holiday on short haul trip, whether it's with work or on holiday I find packing clothes and  skincare super easy, but makeup so so hard. I am always worried when I go abroad that I'll forget something or over pack. So  I thought I'd write up a couple of tips for short-length trips that may be helpful to you guys, or even myself (if I actually remember to stick to them!) 

1. Avoid glass and bulky containers

Glass is an obvious as to why to avoid it. I refuse to take foundation with me in a glass bottle as I just know that if I've got checked in luggage it's going to be chucked around relentlessly and knowing my luck, smash. I would highly recommend foundations that are super travel friendly like the BareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream as it comes in a squeezy tube and I know I can trust it not to leak everywhere! I also learned the hard way with bulky containers when my beautiful Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer smashed everywhere on the way back from a work trip, I was so so gutted! Choose sleeker and more compact products and a good tip is to put a cotton pad inside the lid to stop it from smashing! 

2. Keep products under 100ml

Regardless of whether the fact that I am checking in baggage or not, I always try and keep my products under 100ml. This is mainly because of saving space but who really needs to be taking a product that is more than that for a short trip, and chances are there is a miniature version available of it. For a 3/4 day trip, you don't need to be lugging around your Iconic Glow 150ml bottle. Buy a smaller version of the product.

3. Cut Down on Palettes!

Let's be honest, you don't need to take 3/4 palettes with you. Chances are you won't even use half of them and if you're going somewhere hot, you won't be wearing much of it anyways. Bring some smaller palettes like trios and quads that can take you from day to night and work with multiple outfits/looks. I usually end up taking the Tanya Burr Birthday Suit Eyeshadow Palette with my whenever I go away as it's my go-to daytime eyeshadow palette and you can also use the two darker shades for an evening look. If I do want a more of a glam palette for nights out, the Charlotte Tilbury quad palettes are prefect, they are sleek and compact and Dolce Vita is fabulous as you can actually get quite a few looks out of it! 

4. Bring a Brush Cleaner

Okay so I reckon what takes up the mots space has to be the tools. I actually don't compromise too much when it comes to makeup brushes as I do like to have my specific brushes for blush, bronzer, face powder etc. However eye brushes I do try and narrow down. I usually bring one flat pack brush, one crease brush and a smudge brush. What makes it a lot easier is bringing a brush pot cleaner like the Beauty Blender blendercleanser Solid    . This way if I use darker eyes hadows one night on my crease brush or flat pack brush I can easily clean the shadows off to use the next day. 

5.Get On-Board the Multi-Purpose Products

A perfect way to minimize the amount of products you want to take on holiday is finding multi-purpose products. I used to think these were quite naff and a bit of a gimic, but they are actually so useful. The Nars Multiple Sticks are a testimony for this, a stick for eyes, body, lips and cheeks you can pretty much cut down on 4 products entirely juts taking one of these! If you're a lover for rose-gold eyes Portofino is perfect, it works as a rose-gold blusher and would look gorgeous on the cheeks and the eyes. You could even wear this as a lip-topped too.

  3. I've been trying to do this (and get advantage of all my minis!!) but sometimes is really hard, specially with skin care because I don't really own minis for those.
    I also try to take with me products that can be applied with my hands/sponges rather than blushes because it usually helps me by not packing an extra brush or two!

    Wishing you all the best,
