in my makeup kit
Well I didn't actually find it, I received it as a gift from one of my sisters for Christmas a few years back. I absolutely loved it and took it along on every trip.
I am packing light, I only take one carry-on bag and one checked luggage so I am always on the look out for neat compact products.
Gone are the days of a makeup kit with large fancy bags and full-size containers. Space is at a premium and the airlines have weight restrictions. Also I find that as I am ageing less is more as the saying goes.
The makeup kit that I took with me in the past was Lauren Hutton face disc with 11 pots. When you open it up it also has a mirror. The disc has shadow, cheek blush, spot cover, concealer, lip gloss, eyeliner and more. (Lauren's brand is no longer available) Check out the one like it that I have found for you.
Other than your essentials and maybe special items for your age group, this is all you will really need. It doesn't matter if you go for a weekend or a month and it will help you with packing light.
I know that we have special problems with makeup. There are other things that we might add that younger women may not need or want. Although younger women wear more color and may put more items in total in the makeup bag. When you choose your face makeup or foundation, make sure it is natural makeup, or sheer cover makeup.
Baby boomers do not need heavy foundation as it just makes the lines stand out more.
I need mascara that keeps my eyelashes growing and thicker as they tend to also thin out.
I lost a lot of my eyelashes and they became shorter when I got an autoimmune disorder a type of Rheumatoid arthritis.
I have pretty good lashes again. I am still careful with the products I use because, I want them to stay nice and I wear contacts so my eyes are sensitive.
O.K. now place your entire makeup kit in a small plastic bag with zip lock this is a great cosmetic travel bag or put the baggy it inside a pretty one. It keeps anything from spilling out and getting on your clothes.
You may just want to throw a makeup pallet in your purse separate so it is handy to get at on the air plane.
Make sure not to try and take everything in your at home makeup kit. Go to your beauty supply store or shop on line and purchase small size items.
Some people may like to mix their toiletry items and the make up in the same bag together. I like to at least keep them in separate compartments.
Don’t forget to check out the face pallet sets I have found for you. Laura Hutton face disc is no longer available, but many companies are selling this type of kit now. This is a wonderful travel packing tip that you can thank my sister Gerry for. I am sure you will love it as much as I do.
