If you’re joining in the epic celebration of Black culture that is Essence Festival, then you likely already know two things: it’s uncomfortably hot in New Orleans, and you want to look your best regardless of the heat.
It’s a moment like no other to show up and show out, so you can’t leave your beauty goodies behind. But traveling with a slew of jumbo-sized cosmetics is not fun when the TSA security process is even more rigorous and stressful than ever.
So to help you get all your beauty must-haves to NOLA with ease, we’ve found some cute and compact beauty organizers that will help you get everything you need to Festival, from your medley of brushes, to your cult favorite face wash, and the extras that you’ll bring just in case.
