Plane Traveling for Beauty Junkies

I’m an over-stuffer who likes everything they own when they go on vacation! Which is why packing for travelling is always a hassle and I start the process way ahead. Now over the past two years I have developed a huge obsession with makeup and my collection has grown and so has my makeup routine! Which is what makes it difficult when I’m packing my carry on!

So here’s what I would like to have in my carry-on for beauty items. Split into Makeup and Skincare and Body Care. The brackets show how much of that item its packaging originally consists of. All powdered makeup has a * next to it because there are new rules for powders. We want to keep all liquids and gels under 100 ml and powders under 350 ml.


  • Cleanser (200ml) 
  •  Scrub (177ml)
  • Mask (50 ml)
  •  Lip Mask (0.33 ml)
  • Toner (248 ml)
  • Moisturizer (118 ml)
  •  Acne Treatment (22 ml)
  • Facial Cleaning Tool 
  • Facial Roller
  • Lip Balm


  • Lipsticks (not liquid or gloss)
  • Mirror
  • Contour
  • Color Switch
  • Lip Primer
  • Blotterazzi
  • Makeup Brushes
  • Blush* (8.5ml)
  • Eyeshadow* (10 ml)
  • HD Powder* (8.2 ml)
  • Concealer (4.1ml)
  • Foundation (25 ml)
  • Mascara (8.5 ml)
  • Liquid Eyeliner (0.2 ml)
  • Primer (20ml)
  • Finishing Spray (60 ml)
  • Lash Primer (7ml)
  • Eyelid Primer (3.2 ml)

Body Care and Other

  • Solid Deodorant
  • Sunscreen
  • Hand Cream
  • Dry Body Brush
  • Electric Toothbrush
  • Shaving Razor

Things I’m relying on my friend for

  • Shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • Body Lotion
  • Hair Spray
  • Nail Polish
  • Nail Polish Remover
  • Nail Clipper
  • Nail File, Cuticle Pusher, Buffing Block (Manicure Things)
  • Body Wash
  • Body Scrub
  • Shaving Cream
  • Toothpaste
  • Makeup Brush Cleaning Soap
  • Makeup Remover

Sorry for the long list but I like to have everything! Surprisingly my makeup doesn’t seem to be problematic at all. It’s only my skincare products that need the repackaging to smaller sizes. I’m going to pack my liquid and gel items separately from my other items that way our collection looks smaller so it’s not too overwhelming for security.
