Here is my beauty bag, special "it needs to fit in my hand luggage" and my technics :
1 - Rebottle !
- it will take less space and weight
- your original bottle may be over the 100ml allowed in a hand luggage.
I use the contact lenses holder to put my mousse foundation and my daycream. I used one little bottle to put one of my homemade face toner and the other for Avocado oil. The latter will be used as both a oily make up remover and a night cream serum. And there is a little but alwas usefull mirror included.
5 Producst in such a small space = Victory !
I transfered my Monoï from the bottle into a pot which is smaller and more pratical. I will use it for my hair as a conditionner and as a body cream. The sent is perfect to feel in that holidays mood.
I will also use it as a light deodorant : Monoï is made out of coconut oil in which Tiare flower have been macerated. Coconut oil can be used as a deodorant thanks to its antibacterial proprieties. One product, three uses : winner !
2 - Use Miniatures !
- Mascara lash activator
- Cream blush : cheek activator
- Corrector one base
All 3 are from CARGOS in pocket version. I have been given a little make up bag from this brand with also the Lip pencil & gloss I talked to you about in this article about lipsticks, as a gift from a beauty shop (you know, the type of offer "spend that much in our shop and you will receive this")
I will force myself to not bring my homemade loose powder, my homemade fixating spray, any eyes shadows etc, I'll keep it to the mininum make up I need...
3 - The Rest
- I will bring only one of my hair brushes : my favorite, the wood & cahoutchou one from TEK
- My homemade coloured lipstick, I always have one with me
- A black eyeliner which had a long life already and now it is quite small
- Some cotton pads & earplug
- Some hair accessories
I will not be taking soap/shampoo, all the hotels give out some, not natural or organic I know, but I will survive...
And that's all, after all, let's face it, it's only a weekend ! :)
And you, what beauty bag do you take on holidays ?
