Before you even start packing sit down and make a list to ensure nothing is forgotten and these also keeps you from packing unnecessary items. The best way to start is to go through your daily routine and then think about which items can be left behind. Also consider multiple use items, such as your lipstick can also be used as a cheek stain.
2. Storing liquid ProductsThis technique can apply to sunscreen, lotion, shampoo, conditioner, and any liquid products you can think of. If you need to pack the whole bottle take the lid off, place a sheet of plastic wrap over the opening, and replace the top. This hack will keep your clothes and makeup bag free of any spills.
Alternatively, you can opt out of bringing a full sized bottle and pack travel-sized stuff instead. However, if you are buying these from the store a lot of the products you like aren't offered in mini-sizes and often cost just as much as the full-sized counterparts. Instead, purchase reusable travel bottles you can fill with your products.

To do this simply fill a straw with whatever product you want and push it in with a cotton swab, so there is a bit of straw left on both ends. Clean off the excess with a napkin then use a pair of pliers to melt one end of the straw then the other to seal.
