How to Pack Your Makeup Kit for Travel

Hello beauties!

Today's post is special and different because I am going to teach you what essential beauty products you need to bring for travel! I will also be featuring a great quality beauty case from Stilazzi. The products I'm showing are just the basic things, of course you can bring as many as you want, or as less as you want. It is up to you! I just want to give you some ideas on what to bring and what not. 

The Stilazzi beauty case is a medium-size case, lightweight, and have so much space inside! You can fit a lot of products inside. Here is the product description:

Case size: 13" x 8" x 11"
Inside compartment: 12 3/4" x 7 3/4" and 5 3/4 deep
Pullouts: 2 sides 3 trays
Color: Black Pattern with Brown Trim (it has so many different kinds of pretty colors!)
Interior Color: Black 

Now lets pack our stuffs! 

It is best to bring eyeshadow palettes. First, because it is a compact size. Second, you have so many colors to choose from! I recommend Coastal Scents 88 Color Eye Shadow Palette (for color eyeshadows) and Urban Decay Naked Palette (for neutral eyeshadows).

For face brushes, you only need two kinds. A foundation brush (Sigma F84) and a powder brush (MAC 109). You can always use your foundation brush or your ring finger to dab on your concealer. 
For eye brushes, you only need the four essential brushes, and they are:
An eye shader brush to pack the eyeshadow onto your lid (Sigma E55)
A blending brush for your eye crease (Sigma E35)
Another blending brush to blend your eyeshadow or to apply a highlight color (Sigma E40)
A pencil brush to apply eyeshadow precisely, or to smudge it (UD Blending Brush)

I use Dry 'n Shape from Sigma because not only it can save your brushes for travel, but it also can dry the brushes up faster after washing. 

Then, since the eye palettes and the brushes need bigger space, we put all of those in the lowest compartment. Can you see how much space we have left? You can even put your skincare products too! 

Don't forget your brush cleanser! Mine is from Beauty So Clean, which dry your brushes in like 10 seconds. Then put this along with the palettes and brushes.

For face products, all you need is a foundation, face powder, concealer, bronzer and a blush. Just one of each. Probably you can bring one or two blushes. I pick Benefit Sugarbomb blush because it has a settle color, which is always suitable for any different kinds of eye looks, and it gives me a settle sheen too! So pretty!

Make-up setting spray is necessary, especially when you are traveling because you want your make-up to stay all day! If you have an oily skin, UD De Slick will help you control the oil from your face, and give you a matte finish of your make-up. Bring powder puffs if you use a pressed powder, or a brush if you use a loose powder.

Eye liners are so important because it can change your look with just a line of an eyeliner. I suggested to bring a black eye liner (MAC Smolder) and a brown one (Stila Kajal in Tiger's Eye).

Mascaras are as important as eye liners. I love how the result is when these mascara (Lancome Hypnose Drama and COVERGIRL Lashblast) when they are applied together.

Revision: MAC Lipglass in Cultured, not Coutured.
To be honest, I am not a big fan of lipsticks and lipglosses, I feel a chapstick is enough for me. But, if you want to bring some, a nude and a pink colors are good to go! 
Pinks: MAC Lipstick in Lazy Day (limited edition) and MAC Lipglass in Cultured

The Stilazzi Beauty Case comes with two lock keys, so no one can steal your products! LOL.

Check out Stilazzi website to see more great beauty products!

I really like this beauty case because it is so lightweight and a really good quality case. It is really durable that I am a hundred percent sure it will last for forever! The only downside of this case is the price is quite expensive. It costs $89.95. But hey, it is a great investment, especially if you are a make-up artist. It has a quite good amount of space to pack your kits if you are doing make-up for someone else. 

I hope this post is useful for you all! Now tell me, do you want me to do more "how-to" posts? Do you like it? What do you think of the beauty case? Will you purchase it?
