How To Pack Your Makeup When You Travel

Going somewhere fun this summer?

Travel season is upon us again, and as always I have
tons of inquiries from clients and readers
about how to pack their makeup and skincare products
for vacation travel, business travel
or for their honeymoon.

So this season I am running a series of posts all about what to pack
and how to pack it.


I travel all the time, both internationally and domestically,
 for work and for play, so I have this down to a science, and
my travel bags are always packed and ready to go.

Before you even begin, you need to decide what you are packing your products into.

Rather than squashing your products into bags that don't support them, or that crush when weight is put on top of them, it is crucial that you use travel bags that hold your skincare and makeup products securely, help separate them from each other,
and have you arrive to your destination with all your goodies in their original condition.


A few years ago I was introduced to a line of travel cosmetic and toiletry bags that have become an absolute celebrity favorite. 

They combine a compartmentalized design that lends itself to a heightened sense of order, with a strong, well built structure, and an undeniably chic sense of style.

 They are from Stephanie Johnson (StephanieJohnson.com)


I have written about Stephanie Johnson cosmetic and toiletry bags before, as I have used them on all my travels for years.
They are so beautiful that magazines everywhere feature them.

I have a few different Stephanie Johnson sets - they are so beautiful they are worth collecting! 



This year I am traveling with the  
Stephanie Johnson Jenny Train Case 
from the Cyprus Collection.



This case combines a sturdy rectangular shape that allows me to stack and organize all skin care and makeup products.
It has a removable clear pouch that goes on-board my flight with me, carrying the essentials that I need with me when I fly.


The pouch itself is not only well constructed and strong, thus protecting my products, but also is perfect for airport security screening. 
A matching hand mirror secures inside with a snap fastener.
When I arrive at my destination the pouch snaps back into the main case, keeping all my makeup organized and in one place.

The Jenny train case also has straps to secure makeup brushes, pencils etc and a handle to carry it with.

And on top of everything else, it looks incredibly chic!
