Makeup

Beauty on the road.

The best way I've found to pack my most precious beauty products.

I have tried packing my makeup in every which way I could think of.
I’ve ended up (so far..) hooked on one very classy method.
After trying a few more aesthetically pleasing options, that always never worked the way I wanted them to. For instance:

Makeup packing

The Train Case/Caboodle
I like the way these look but…
A. They are BIG and Bulky
B. While dragging one of these around my heart aches with every clank and clamor I hear going on inside the box and I’m being careful!
I can’t even imagine what could possibly be going on while it’s being loaded into the plane…
C. There is no leeway in the dimensions. If it doesn’t fit, there’s no squeezing and something is always left out.

rollup

Makeup Roll Up
Although, less clanky and obtrusive, these have also caused me problems over time. Being:
A. Never enough space (but I usually have work so I need to bring much more makeup than for just one face)
B. Once dirty these have always been hard for me to get looking shiny and new again.

Those and variations of those have pretty much been my only rotating option until I found…

Best beauty packing idea ever!

The Zip&Ship
Michelle & Laura (akacMM&L Show)  gave me this idea a few months back on Youtube. This video explains how they pack with baggies. Its kind of genius cause it keeps everything organized and clean being how it’s all separated. So if a foundation blows mid-flight the mess is contained.
I take 4, 1 Gallon Zip Locks: Eyes, Lips, Face & Brushes.
Then within the large bags I’ll separate out into smaller categories with zip locks i.e.
Lips: Red, Berry, Pink & Nude
Eyes: Brows, shadow & lashes
Face: Blush, bronzers, illuminators, primers & foundations
The smaller the makeup collection the less you need to separate out but you could always use this for all other toiletries and anything else you need to pack. I’ve found more than anything it helps me not forget so much because I’ve gone through each group so it’s easier to see what’s missing. PLUS: If (or when in may case) the Zips get dirty? Just switch em with a sparkly new one.

I CANNOT wait to tell you guys all about my New York Trip.
I can’t even emotionally deal with how incredible it was.
In the meantime have the most wonderful 4th of July!

    That’s how I pack my makeup too… Those little makeup cases always get so dirty!!

    This is a little off topic but do you still use Wen? I just found your website via pinterest and have been reading through your old posts. I’ve been thinking about trying it but would love to hear your opinion on it!

      Did you see this follow up post about Wen? http://www.maskcara.com/maskcara/2012/10/17/wenning/

      IIRC, she’s said that you can’t use Wen with the extensions she’s got in right now.

      This is so easy, I can’t believe it didn’t occur to me. I sort of tried this on my last trip but I was using the collection of little make up bags I have from my Ipsy subscription. That looked really pretty but it meatn that I couldn’t find anything!

    Haha, this is totally what I defaulted to when I had to style a book on the other side of the country, because the dang caboodle I bought just FOR THAT PURPOSE wouldn’t fit comfortably in the suitcase. I also had several sets of brushes in numbered bags so that I could keep each model’s separate. By the end, the organizational system fell apart though- part of it is because we were working out of a car on location and there wasn’t space to spread out at all, and part of it is my own negligence (we were in a hurry!) I’d like to find something slightly more structured if I ever do that again (or maybe color coded- do they make colored ziplocs? They must… or maybe something like small packing cubes? )

    I hate traveling with makeup; I’m always worried something is going to break or get lost! When going on a plane I usually use ziploc bags, but if it’s just on the road then I stick everything I want in my smaller than usual Lancome makeup bag 🙂

    Zip locks are mandatory when flying…. the first time something leaks (due to the air pressure) or a powder shatters you will understand, lol!

    I used a caboodle train case very similar to the one you showed for several years when traveling with my husband for his work. I found the key is to use some washcloths (or socks!) to fill any empty space. Cushions all your products. I never once had anything break and with the solid case crushing was not a worry.

    Great idea! How do you keep your make-up/products organized at home? I find that the things I use daily are easy to get at, but other products that i only use occasionally, different hair product, crazy lip color, different eye shadows, etc. get pushed to the back of the drawer or where ever and then I forget I have them or forget to use them. Its fun to ‘re-discover’ them … but i’d like a more easily accessible way of having my stuff available to use. Any ideas you have would be appreciated! PS – I LOVE your blog – i’m TOTALLY addicted to it.

    Hi Cara,

    Ever since I have stumbled upon your blog about a year ago, I have been hooked! I am consistently reading your posts and catching up with the latest hair/makeup ideas. Although I have naturally curly Italian hair, I constantly straighten my hair. I know, its not the healthiest decision, however I am in total denial with my curls. I have never found the right product or style for it. It is either to frizzy or to stiff from the product. Without any product it is just a mess. My only option is to pull it back tight into a “ballerina bun” and not look into the mirror for the entire day until I wash that mane and straighten it. Sounds dramatic right? After sharing my whole hair life story with you, I am writing this to hopefully inspire you to do a tutorial or post about styling naturally curly hair. After using maskcara.com as my style bible, I know that you are the person who will be able to help me!

    Your loyal fan from Canada,

    Juliana
