01. Pack as you go through your routine. I pack my skincare the night before (night time regime) and also when I'm getting ready in the morning (morning regime + makeup). Very likely products used are products we love and need in order to look like a mannequin.
02. Use a sturdy makeup bag to protect gems within.
"Don't forget to bring your face."
Being a traveller whom spends most of my time living out of a suitcase, packing plays a big part in terms of whether did I bring all necessities and if the products could last me till the return flight is booked. I'm leaving for a month long business trip to China which can be extended further on the very last minute. Extremely important for skincare products to last because looking for replacement is pain af and waking up like an angel is life.
Packing beauty essentials can be challenging to all but since I'm so used to packing (also plain lame), everything can be packed under 5 minutes. I love a good base, sexy brows and juicy lips. A fresh and simple makeup look is all I need to conquer the day.

.03 Bring travel sized products/transfer liquids into smaller containers if possible. Since Aesop glass bottles are specially designed to protect the product within, I'm rolling with it.
.04 Consider packing products that are on the verge of finishing. What's better than using everything till the last bit and leaving the empty bottle behind?
.05 Stick to the products that you are comfortable with. I don't recommend trying out new skincare especially if you have sensitive skin like mine and when the trip is longer than a few days.
.06 Pack leakable items together and make sure the openings are tightly closed and sealed with tape. Love a good explosion of glitter but not as exciting when it comes to facial oil.
I'm ready to take off. Hopefully you snagged a tip or two. Do share your travel beauty essentials :) Talk to you soon ladies, see you soon for a brand new post.
