We had the chance to peek inside Lulu Guinness's carry on bag. The creator of our all time favorite makeup bags ever was in NYC to celebrate the launch of her online U.S. store tomorrow. That's Lulu above, with her carry on, one of her Cameo bags. And one of her famed makeup bags below. Each comes with a mini mirror so you can "put on your lipstick", she explains.
No surprise, Lulu says she "Likes things you can't get everywhere". To that end, her favorite moisturizer for travel is Guinot and her lipstick is Terry by Terry.
Lulu likes to travel light, so she watches movies showing on the plane--on her hop across the pond this week, she saw Up in the Air and A Single Man. She enjoyed Up in the Air more as she liked that it had a story and thought A Single Man, was too stylized.
When it comes to snacks, Lulu enjoys a wrap from Pret a Manger or the snacked served on Virgin.
Lulu catches up on her magazine reading, including British and American versions of Elle and Vouge, but admits her favorite is U.K. Gossip mag Grazia.
For the launch of her U.S. online store, Lulu created the snakeskin U.S. flag lip clutch (below: top row, center), which is available exclusively on her website.
