Protect blush and shadow containers 1
Every girl has been there--you open your bag only to find that your previously perfect powder eyeshadow and blush has somehow broken and crumbled all over the rest of your stuff. It's the worst! Make it travel-proof by stuffing cotton pads into the case before packing!
Turn cotton swabs into an on-the-go cosmetic kit 2
Instead of bringing ALL of your favorite eyeshadows, lipglosses, and such, dab a bit of your favorites to the end of cotton swabs and stash them in a plastic bag in your purse. It'll make applying a breeze and save a ton of room!
Use a contact case as storage 3
Have any extra contact cases lying around? Use them as storage for your cream concealers or lipglosses!
Pack makeup brushes in eyeglass cases 5
If you don't have a brush holder or don't want to carry a bulky makeup, store your essential brushes in an eyeglass or sunglass case. It'll save space and you won't have to dig through your bag to look for them.
