I’m a big overpacker. If I need to pack for a weekend, then I’ll pack what I would really need for a full week. I need to have multiple choices for all planned activities and options for activities not yet planned, and I always am unsure of the weather. This goes for both clothing and beauty products. I can easily bring four large eyeshadow palettes on a three day vacation.
This is a habit that I’ve been trying to break, and my ultimate goal is to reduce myself down to a carry-on for travel. My biggest sticking point has always been the 3-1-1 bag — carry-on beauty packing is not easy! It is really hard to be a beauty addict and fit all of your grooming products into that bag! It turns out, there are some big tricks to packing that 3-1-1 bag and still having all of your basic beauty products.
