Packing my Cosmetic Bag

I am beyond excited to leave for New York and the Hamptons today! Packing yesterday was quite the struggle, and I'm seriously crossing my fingers that I didn't forget anything. One of the most crucial aspects of packing a suitcase is packing your cosmetic bag. For me, I always think I won't need things and then I show up on vacation missing something I seriously would've liked to have with me. 

So, fear not, consider this your field guide to packing your cosmetic bag!

I organize my bag in layers. I start with my makeup brushes, moisturizer, eyelash curler, and heat protectant on the bottom. Although these are all things I will need almost everyday, they are the bulkiest and make packing my toiletries that much easier. I swear by this moisturizer and this heat protectant.

Next, I add on top my deodorant, a roll-on perfume, a razor, makeup remover, cuticle oil, and highlighting drops. These are kind of those awkward things you need but don't really know what to do with them.

Towards the top I like to add the things I absolutely must have; the things that wouldn't be too easy to replace in a pinch. This includes my favorite tinted moisturizer, my everyday mascara, go-to bronzer and eyebrow pencil, and the nail polish I'm wearing that week.

In the little pocket I have chapstick, bobby pins, a few nail tools like a cuticle trimmer and mini file, and an extra hair tie. Other essentials inside: my favorite eyeshadow palette, lip balm, and clear nail polish.

Finally, on the very top, I throw in my toothbrush, toothpaste, medicine, hand lotion and qtips!

And that's that! Do you have any tips for packing your cosmetic case?
