My wife and I have a 4 night trip coming up in May, and then a 7 night trip in August. Since I got my Brain Bag (and her Smart Alec arrives tomorrow!) and have been poking around this site and some 'light traveling' sites, we're re-assessing how we pack and what luggage we use. I just ordered some more organizational stuff last night (the 3/1/1 bag, the clear quarter packing cube, and the Side Effect) and I think that's going to allow me to pack everything I need into my Brain Bag except my clothes, and I think I can get those into a pretty compact space.
For my wife, she's never found a satisfactory way to transport make-up. What she tells me is either the container is too flimsy and her stuff gets damaged, or it's too bulky and heavy and takes up too much space. So I'm curious what some of you ladies do who pack make-up on your travels. Any recommendations?
I actually ordered the clear quarter packing cube for two reasons. One, I think I can put my toiletries on one side and then all my nutritional stuff (supplements, smoothie powder mixes, organic food bars) into the other side. If so, that will be terrific. But I'm also hoping that maybe that can be a good make-up bag for her.
I'll be grateful for any recommendations, thanks.
