Travel Toiletry Bag Hacks!

Cosmetic bag…toiletry bag…makeup bag….whatever you want to call it, it is something we all have to deal with every time we travel. It can be a source of hassle or happiness depending on how we prepare!

I asked my friends and family for some ‘Toiletry Bag Hacks’ so that we can all make this part of our travel experience a little easier!

Here’s what they said…

From Jessica:

-Wear less makeup!

Use lip stain instead of lipstick!

-Lip stain stays on longer than lipstick. (Her favorite is pictured above.)

From Tessea:

-I have a good toiletry bag that can fold up and has lots of pockets, and I can hang it anywhere I want. (A bag similar to hers can be found here.)

-This is how I pack my earrings:

Use buttons to keep your earrings organized!

From Zack:

-Airplane size shampoo, body wash, and toothpaste are the best.

From Korinne:

-I use a simple contact case to hold my foundation and lotion. (See pictures below.)

Use a contact case!

-I also like to use my lip stick as lip color, as cheek color, and as eye shadow (on the corners). This cuts out a lot of extra makeup.

From Gretchen Rubin (I read this idea on her blog!):

-Use a plain old Zip Lock bag, that way if something spills, you can just throw it away and use a new one! (See a picture of Gretchen’s bag here.)

From Me (Shan’tel!):

Here’s my bag, ready to go!

-I keep my bag packed and ready to go at all times. (I keep mine stocked with everything I need except for a few makeup items that I just throw in when I’m ready to leave.)

The basics I keep in my bag at all times.

-Use the extra shampoos/conditioners/soaps that hotels give you. They are the perfect travel size and they are free!

-The bag I use and love can be found here.

I hope these Toiletry Bag Hacks will help you ease your packing process next time you travel.
