Your boss just informed you that she’s sending you on a business trip next week to Japan. Or you just looked at your calendar and realized that your family reunion in Nebraska is this weekend! Don’t get us wrong; we know vacations and business trips are exciting and something to look forward to. However, they are also one of the most stressful things to prepare for. In addition to your daily routine, you need to set aside a budget, spend spare time planning, and of course make sure you have everything you’ll need when you are packing.
Pack Your Makeup for Travel
Packing for a trip can either be completely stressful or a breeze. By keeping organized and planning ahead, you can ensure that you won’t forget anything important. With all the focus on clothes, you can easily forget beauty supplies and makeup, yet those items are equally important for business meetings and those long lasting family photos that you know cousin Ethel will put up on Facebook. So, here are a few steps to packing your makeup for travel quickly and effectively.
1. Check Your Daily Items

Even the smallest item can cost you big bucks if you forget it (like toothpaste from the gift shop in your hotel.) So, spend some time thinking of what you use every day. If you have a special color treated hair shampoo, for example, your hotel will not provide that. Similarly, if you have a favorite lotion, prefer Q-tip brand vs. the lookalikes, etc. remember to bring them along. Also account for evenings out and special events that might take place while you are traveling.
