The Bare Necessities

Abigail Royston travel blogger

“I always pack my makeup essentials - lipstick, foundation, concealer, mascara, eye liner - as well as some sun tan cream, toothpaste & toothbrush in my hand luggage. That way if my large bags get lost in transit I can still look my best, feel myself and enjoy the sun!”

The perfect bag for Abigail is our set of 2 makeup bags! She could use the larger one for her toiletries and the smaller one for her cosmetic goodies. (If you are only taking hand luggage, don’t forget to take a plastic bag too and make sure your liquids are under 100mls).

Sharing is Caring

british beauty blogger

“Buy your sun cream and after sun after you've gone through (airport) security and you can take a big bottle to share around with your friends or family.”

If like Jane you plan on sharing products with others, then a more compact bag is great for you. We recommend our cosmetics pouch!

Get Your Lippy On

 “For variation, I'll bring a few different lipsticks that can dramatically change a look.”

Mix and match your lip look, to take you from poolside to dinner in an instant with a selection of different lipstick shades. Go for a soft nude for the day and a bolder pop of colour for the evening.

TOP TIP! Try a tangerine hue lippy instead of red. It is more flattering for most skin tones and looks great with a tan.

Store your lipsticks and other makeup must haves in our folding makeup bag. The compact, yet roomy compartments are designed to fit makeup brushes, so you don’t have to leave all your beauty accessories at home.

“Find the smallest sizes of your favourite products. I am quite particular with my hair care products, and love that my favourite brand, Pureology, has prepared a special travel kit.”

Do you love your toiletry minis like Mrs O? Check out her fave hair brand here.

We think our classic wash bag would be Mrs O’s perfect travel companion. The elegant one compartment style can be filled to the brim with little bottles!
