Tripping: Lauren Conrad Shares Her Tips for Packing Beauty Essentials

Packing up your beauty essentials and toiletries for a trip is truly a science. Let’s be honest here—who hasn’t had a lotion explode on them at least once? Today, I am going to share my best beauty packing tips and spotlight three of my favorite travel kits from my XO(eco) collection of sustainable travel cases for BlueAvocado.

Pro Packing Tips

1. Pre-organize. Compartmentalize your goods by separating types of makeup, toiletries, and hair accessories into different cases and baggies. This will make navigating your bag much easier!

2. Separate liquids. Take all liquid products and put them into a reusable plastic baggie. That way if something spills, it won’t get everything in your suitcase.

3. Protect your powder compacts. To ensure powder compacts arrive in one piece, put them into a baggie with beauty sponges placed on either side, or wrap them up with a few tissues to help absorb the shock of being tossed around when traveling.

4. Beware of loose brushes. Pack your beauty brushes into a separate plastic bag. The reusable baggies from my XO(eco) collection are big enough for brushes to lay flat and vertically, so they don’t get bent or damaged during transit.

5. Snuggle up! If you can, it’s best to pack your cosmetic cases in your carry-on. However, if you can’t stash them there, be sure to sandwich your beauty bags between washable items, like socks and pajamas, just in case you have some spillage.

For toiletries...

I use my XO(eco) Beauty Kit to stow my deodorant, toothbrush, toothpaste, tweezers, hair goodies, sunscreen, soaps, etc. I love this case because it folds up flat, which is ideal for packing.
