As i was packing my bag to attend a family event in Hyderabad i realised i really need a good, organised travel makeup kit. What would your dream kit look like? I know i want mine to be like something i saw once- a stiff acrylic case inside a plastic pouch and that case can just come out and then be placed on your dresser- so you have a travelling dresser ! Would also probably want nice sections for everything- maybe soft pouches for hairbrushes and makeup brushes so their bristles dont get ruined . Seperate compartments for dry and wet makeup etc…
What about you? How would you design a travel makeup kit?

PS: Im off to Hyderabad for the weekend !!! YIPPPEEEEEEE !!!!! I think im the only crazy person who gets this excited to go to her in-laws house. But honestly, Hyderabad is like ultimate relaxation destination for me !

I have seen this beautiful satin pink finish kit an year ago, and I though I will buy that someday. But that shop is no longer there :-(
I would like to have 4 different color small pouches (may be with polka dots) to group items and then a beautiful bag in animal prints to accommodate all those small pouches and some pretty keychains hanging on side of it.

I usually carry all my makeup stuff in a sturdy box. and Inside segregate everything in pouches..
Though I’m planning to buy a very pretty case with a lot of compartments :)

I always carry my makeup/skincare stuff while travelling in pencil / pen pouches — ever seen those cute little pouches that kids carry around ? They make awesome pouches for makeup too..

I bought this travel kit recently. I love it-makes me want to travel often just to use it. Comes with all the clear bottles and loofah , i ave filled it with my face wash, shampoo, my kid’s body wash,etc. The main zip is spacious and i have my compact, BB cream, eye liner,mascara,kajal , comb, safety pins, scissors, ear buds and a razor in it.

I love Hyderabad.. Sniff.. :( I miss my hometown. Make sure you carry enough sunscreen, sunglasses and a mini umbrella. Summer in Hyd is killer.

My ideal (dream) travel makeup kit will have to be a sleek hard box, matte black (like a mini suitcase- polygonal or round to look at from the side, which has a diameter of say 12′ and height of 8′. It should not be rectangular). I’d like a mirror on one side , so I can use it like a mini dresser. The other deeper side can have compartments for lippers, eyeliners, kajal , foundation/BB cream and stuff. The bottom most with good padding to keep makeup brushes and combs. Almost like the good old vanity case but much more chic and sleek!

Thats the dream makeup kit. What I carry is a cute pink pouch with satin lining, into which fit all my stuff. :P

ha ha ! I was exactly thinking about this today evening. I am in dire need of cute little brushes to put in my travel kit.

my dream makeup kit will be small and sleek with lots of compartments and pockets so I can keep my makeup stuff neatly in each compartment :)

I always loved the hard case make up boxes (like what air hostesses would carry in the olden days). But they are so inconvenient.

Rose gold , leather casing,something exclusive in finish n lots of space

I wish I was even just a little bit organized to be able to give an acceptable answer on this topic.:P

a medium sized translucent pouch would do for me .. big enough to store all the important stuff but not squish anything ! :)
