When you are packing your makeup for a trip, sometimes it feels like you might as well just pack the whole darn dressing table!!! Argh! But there isn’t enough room for that… so…

Here is a way to pack ALL your essentials but save ALL the space in your bag! It is ingenious if we do say so ourselves, hehe. 😛


  • Hair straightener
  • Disposable plastic gloves
  • Your make-up

  1. Cut the plastic glove’s finger.

  2. Squeeze make-up into the cut glove finger (just enough for one use!)

  3. Seal the open section shut with the heated straightener (just one second is enough).

  4. Make a tear with scissors to be easily ripped open later.
    Be careful that the make-up does not leak.

To Use: Just rip the tear open when you want to put on your make-up.

Happy packing and enjoy your trip~ 😛
