You go from work to the gym, and out for an evening activity from wake-up to wind down. Or, you have a long trip that demands more than little ER kits can handle. Life happens on the go and you need the best makeup bags for bigger days. You are ready to go—wherever you go. Whether it’s a big bag or a long trip, packing more can be an advantage.
Here are some helpful packing trips to go anywhere.
The Biggest, Best Makeup Bags
Small cosmetic pouches reduce a lot of weight, but they just won’t always do.
If you consolidate, you can pack everything you’ll need in a large cosmetic pouch. Look for versatile palettes that will take you from day-to-night. Apply thinner lines or dark brown or black for day looks and heavier for nighttime. That way you only need one pencil.
One trick to packing for anything is to separate your needs into separate pouches. Brighton has pouch sets. Pack your various bags for the different parts of your day. Freshen makeup anywhere with the smallest cosmetic pouch. In the medium pouch, keep your brush, some sunblock and hair accessories. In the largest pouch, keep your gym-friendly travel sized shower kit. You can easily pop it back into your trunk, duffel or bigger luggage.
You can also use a convertible pouch that you can unpack when you arrive or keep using as a makeup bag.
Don’t get stuck squinting at your reflection in a window or trying to use silver wear to apply your lipstick. Pack your bag with easy-to-grab makeup holders with mirrors and a travel mirror. These little wonders can also save you from messes:
Depending on your luscious locks, you may need a separate toolkit, or not. But it’s always great to have a few things on-demand. Stay prepared for high humidity, rain, and warm sunshine with a few hair must-do’s.
Pop these into your purse in a larger cosmetic pouch or keep them in a smaller cosmetic pouch.
A coin purse fits perfectly alongside or inside a large cosmetic pouch. Stock it with the littler essentials for easy organization. And with our designs, they make super cute makeup bags. Consider keeping one for on-the-grab:
Some equipment you keep at home, you can easily forget on the road. Don’t forget to pack these in your travel gear:
For long days and longer trips, pack either day-to-evening makeup essentials or separate looks for each. Before dropping everything in your cosmetic pouch, layout each look in a column. You won’t forget anything. Then, put things you can consolidate (like foundation and mascara) in the column in between the two sets.
