The Do's and Don'ts of Bringing Makeup Brushes on Vacation

A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do - even when she's on vacation. That means packing all of the necessary beauty supplies, from shampoo and conditioner to makeup brushes. 

Makeup brushes are essential to any beauty routine, but they can be a real pain to pack.

On the one hand, it's nice to have your trusty beauty tools with you on vacation. But on the other hand, there's always the risk of them getting damaged or lost in transit! But one thing's for sure-- you definitely don't want to use the provided hotel brushes. Ew.

So what should you do? Here are some tips for packing your makeup brushes on vacation:

DON'T: Forget to Clean Them First

This one seems like a no-brainer, but you'd be surprised how many people forget to clean their makeup brushes before packing them up for a getaway. Makeup brushes can get pretty grimy, and the last thing you want is to pack dirty brushes into your suitcase.

So before you even start packing your brushes, be sure to give them a good cleaning. You can use a gentle soap and water or buy a brush cleaner from your local beauty store.

DO: Bring a Compact Set

If you can, try to bring a smaller, more compact set of makeup brushes on vacation with you. This will save space in your suitcase and make it less likely that your brushes will get damaged. Plus, most travel-sized brush sets have a handy case to keep everything organized.

DON'T: Use Your Everyday Brushes

When packing your makeup brushes for vacation, resist the temptation to use your everyday brushes. Instead, pack a separate set of "travel" brushes that you don't mind getting a little beat up. This way, if they do get damaged, it's not a big deal.

DO: Remember the Essentials

When packing your makeup brushes for vacation, don't forget the essentials! Pack a powder brush, foundation brush, and a few other basic brushes you'll need for your everyday look. And of course, don't forget to pack a few spare makeup sponges-- just in case!

DON'T: Just Throw Them in Your Suitcase

If you're really worried about your brushes getting damaged in transit, there are a few things you can do to protect them. First, invest in a good brush roll or case. This will help to keep them safe and organized. 

Second, try wrapping each brush individually in a brush guard or a layer of tissue paper. This will help to cushion them and keep them from getting damaged.

Third, put them all in a durable and weightless travel bag that you can easily carry with you. And nothing does the job better thanForChics Travel Bag!

So there you have it-- some tips for packing your makeup brushes on vacation. With these tips in mind, you can rest assured that your brushes will stay safe and sound while you're away from home. Bon voyage!
