What's in My Makeup Travel Kit

Let me introduce you to what I use to store my toiletries, hair accessories, and makeup for when I travel.  Henri Bendel, how do I love thee for this ADORABLE Large Hanging Weekender Bag.  This is one of the bestsellers at Henri Bendel.  Compact yet stores a lot of items.  

And this is what it looks like when opened.  This bag can hang inside of a hotel bathroom for convenience.  I use the compartment all the way to the left to store hair accessories (bobby pins, hair ties) and other knick knacks such as safety pins.  I use the middle compartment to store toiletries such as qtips, eye makeup remover pads, lotion, skin products, contact lens solution, contact lens case, deodorant, lotion, tweezer, and razor. 

The right compartment stores all of my makeup.  Here's the break down:

  1. Wow, I can't believe you can store all that stuff in that bag! I'll have to go check out that bag since I travel a lot.

    Unfortunately my liquid skin care products take up a lot of space and trying to get everything to fit in a little quart size bag for carry-on luggage (stupid check baggage fees)can be challenging.

    1. if your significant other also has a carry on, store some of your stuff in his quart size bag =) that's what I plan on doing with my husband
