There’s nothing more devastating than discovering you’ve forgotten your beauty essentials at home. Especially if you’re preparing to go to an after-work event or are travelling to Paris for a quick getaway. My mood quickly shifts to the dark side when my lip gloss is missing from my cosmetic pouch. So I figured, why not travel in convertible style? So, now I throw all of my beauty essentials into my current pouch obsession – the L.A.M.B. Music Cosmetic Bag. $120. I picked a fun and flirty bag that’s sexy and seamlessly moves from day to night in an instant. It also holds all of my beauty essentials like blush, mascara, lipstick or lipgloss, lipliner, blot powder and a mirrored compact. While I consider these to be beauty basics that every woman should have in her cosmetic bag, I encourage you to step it up a notch by adding some interesting extras to create the ultimate cosmetic pouch.
Here are a few tips to incorporate travel size beauty products for every cosmetic bag:
MY PRO TIPS:
Tip 1: Consolidate. Flight-approved Jao’s Flight Rescue Pak takes the work out of packing the basics because it includes a lip balm, hand refresher, and a facial moisturizer that lasts up to one week. Just slip this small zip-seal bag into your purse and off you go. $16
Tip 2: Keep it simple and invest in disposable items. Have you ever thought about washing your hands, but there wasn’t a bar of soap in sight? A fun solution are Travel Soap Leaves from the Spoon Sisters. Just pull one out of the packet and work into a lather and rinse. How easy is that? $3.95
Tip 3: Travel-size it/keep it small. Always pack sunscreen. Peter Thomas Roth’s Oily Problem Skin Instant Mineral SPF 30 is the perfect fit for your cosmetic pouch with it’s easy-to-use retractable brush. $30. Prepare your face for foundation with Smashbox Photofinish Primer with SPF 15. It moisturizers, smoothes out wrinkles and helps makeup stay on longer. $17. Even your complexion with Wet N Wild’s Natural Wear Mineral Foundation. $4.99. Gloss up your pout with Belmacz Glow in Scarlett and complete your get away packing with a beautiful scent from Clean called Shower Fresh Eau De Parfum Rollerball. $22
