    Makeup For Travel

    • 2 min read

    BY CHELSEA SIMMONS

    I'm sorry for the delay in postings, but I have just been on vacation (YAY!). I thought it would be fun to see what we bring with us in our makeup bags when we travel. I love traveling light. I'd rather go without than be weighed down. The few things I pack are soft knitted separates that can be mixed and matched endlessly, and don't need ironing: a jersey dress, a cardigan, leggings, skirt, tanks. This can last me two weeks! My makeup kit is similar: While this may sound like vacation packing (and it is) I use this formula for business travel as well. I might add my favorite Uniqlo blazer and one PurePressed Eye Shadow Tripleinstead of the Glimmer Gold. My dear friend and colleague Laura is always prepared for everything, and her travel makeup kit proves it. When travelling, she will be equally confident on a hike in the woods or at a red carpet event, because in her Quilted Makeup Bag she packs: I wrote to Jane while she was on vacation to see what she had packed. She wrote back: Now it's your turn. Please share your travel tips! What do you bring in your makeup kit when you travel?
