3 brilliant new tips for traveling with beauty products

Just in time for spring/summer travel.

I consider myself an excellent packer, yet when it comes to beauty products, I somehow always fail. I bring too much or too little makeup, I forget my round brush and/or face wash (always one of those two), a blush shatters or body lotion spills, I decant way too little conditioner into a stupid little travel bottle and then have to run to a drugstore and buy more.

Recently I've come across a few truly brilliant tips on Pinterest for traveling with beauty products, though, and they've inspired me to change my ways (just in time for spring/summer travel).

1. Pack a solid conditioner. I go through so much of the liquid stuff, it's hard to bring minis. This is a perfect no-spill solution. I've read great things about Lush Jungle Conditioner, and I am going to test it ASAP and report back.

2. Put makeup on ready-to-use swabs
. Wow, duh. This is so much smarter than bringing a million different eyeshadows when you go away on a wedding weekend.

3. Protect breakables with cotton.
So. Smart. This helps prevent blush and eyeshadow from breaking in transit.
