1. Protect breakables such as glass fragrance bottles by slipping them into socks before packing them.

2. Stick your hairpins and clips inside an old Tic Tac container to easily keep track of them.

3. Instead of packing big, bulky makeup bottles for a quick weekend trip, pour a little bit of the product into a clean contact case for easy travel.

4. To prevent liquid products from bursting (and ruining everything else) inside your bag, cut a small square of cling film, unscrew the product's lid, set the film on top, and screw the lid back on. That way if the lid pops open, no product can spill out.

5. Protect powder makeup products from breaking while traveling by sticking a cotton pad or cotton ball inside the compact before putting it in your makeup bag.

6. If your razor doesn't have a protective cap, use a large binder clip to cover the sharp blades so you don't accidentally cut your finger when digging around your makeup bag.

7. Use an old medicine bottle to store cotton swabs, sponges, or other disposable makeup applicators.

8. Coat the ends of a few cotton swabs in your favourite eye shadow shades, and then put them in a plastic sandwich bag when traveling to save packing space.

9. Put your makeup brushes or other small beauty products in a slim sunglasses case when travelling so you won't lose them.
