Travel Toiletry Bag Hacks!

March 18, 2019

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.
