Travel Cosmetic Bag-A-Quick-Checklist
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Selecting a travel cosmetic bag is as important as picking the right clothes and luggage when you are planning a trip. It is probably even more important depending on where your journey is to, because as you already know, looking good and feeling great is important. I know from my own personal viewpoint, that no matter where I am, I want to look my best and feel my best, so having the right cosmetics with me is vital.

In today's fastly changing world we need to be ready for just about anything so here is a quick checklist for all you ladies, who like me need to be prepared for any eventuality. If you have these in your travel cosmetic bag, then you will be capable of looking great, feeling fresh and ready to take on any of life's challenges.

A good selection of make-up, from moisturizer, foundations right through to lippy, eye liners, mascara and blushers. I also carry a full make up removal kit for the evenings.

A selection of top quality shampoo and conditioner along with a comb, hairbrush,hair dryer and hair spray and hair straighteners if you use them. Some hotels do supply these types of things but not all of them. I just don't like taking the chance. If they are in the hotel I will use them of course, but just in case I have my own supply in my travel cosmetic bag. I do buy the smaller bottles of these for ease of carrying and weight restrictions on planes.

The basics - don't forget them, toothbrush, toothpaste, mouth freshener, ear buds, a flannel and tampons or towels. It is amazing how easy these are to forget.

Airport Travel - don't forget to check individual airports for their hand luggage restrictions otherwise you could end up losing some very expensive and necessary make up. Take only what you need in a clear or PVC cosmetic bag and get everything else into the hold.

A friend of mine who travels a lot keeps a spare travel cosmetic bag at her mother in law's house in case she ever needs a quick top-up, and she also keeps one in her work locker. I myself still have one at Mom's house and one at my boyfriend's apartment, for those "just in case" moments.

If I am travelling regularly, and sometimes my work and leisure necessitates that, then I always use a travel cosmetic case. It is made of aluminium and is much more robust and I keep inside that my softer cosmetic cases. I use a roll up cosmetic bag for my straighteners, hair dryer and my longer brushes. I keep my really expensive makeup in a locked zippered cosmetic case, because I trust no-one with that.

There is now such a wide choice of travel cosmetic cases available that is it now a matter of personal choice as to which type you actually use. I do like some of the designer cosmetic cases and not just for the brand name, I just think they are better made and last longer. There seems to have been a lot of thought put into them, and I also believe they were designed by women for women. They seem to have the right number of compartments with the right sizes and shapes to hold all the bits and bobs that we need.

I must admit I am not a big fan of travel cosmetic cases that are just empty and everything gets dropped in to the bottom of it. I find my makeup gets ruined and it is just plain messy. I like to know what I have, be able to see it and more importantly be able to find it in a hurry.

I hope you have found my quick checklist for travel cosmetic bags useful and informative.
