Packing my hair and makeup supplies used to be such a tedious task. There are so many things to pack, everything is leaky and you always want to pack each and every makeup brush. SMH! After a few failed attempts, I decided that I needed a strategy for how I would pack my hair products and supplies and makeup must haves.
I used to pack them together in one bag but that was NOT working. Now I pack them separately to avoid any issues with leaking.
My mother-in-law blessed me with a Mary Kay makeup brush case and it doubles as a makeup bag type thing. At first I thought it was not going to help me but now it is a key staple for packing my makeup. It holds my brushes, has a makeup bag in it and a section for blushes and eye shadows.

The makeup that I wear to actually travel in, I keep in my handbag. Recently I was listening to a Youtube interview with blogger and fashion creative Margaret Zhang where she suggests not wearing make up when travelling... not too sure about that move but I may try it and see how it goes.
Before heading to the airport my hair is usually tied down and then I touch it up before I head out. So I still need last minute access to my hair tools. My hair must haves are literally packed in a plastic bag. Why? They are always leaking, can stain other things and are usually the last thing that I pack. The plastic bag is easy to throw away if something leaks. What is in the plastic bag?
