The Best Travel Makeup Bags

Travel Cosmetic Bags

When traveling, I want access to all of my makeup and beauty items quickly and easily. I have tried many different travel makeup bags and travel accessories over the years, and recently I have found that I need a new set of bags.

Personally, I like a big case that opens on the top for my makeup. I can unzip it and have everything in once spot, and since they aren’t very deep they are easy to dig around and find what I am looking for.

I don’t put my makeup brushes in the same travel case as my makeup. I love cases that have slots for my brushes, and I can open them or unroll to reveal my brushes easily.

Finally, for my other items, such as shampoo or skin care, I like cases that open up with different see through compartments. I can organize the compartments to easily find what I need. I prefer the interior of this bag to be plastic, so it can be easily cleaned if anything spills.

Here’s a look at a few of the travel makeup bags I’ve had my eye on. Note, the day that this post published I received probably the best makeup travel case ever in the mail. Here’s a preview from Instagram, I’ll publish a full review in the next few days!

    The Sephora J Goldcrown (no2) is absolutely gorgeous, I have used that style before when traveling and find them a bit bulky. I probably prefer a model like the SOHO Jungle Jam Collection Deluxe Cosmetic Weekender which offers more functionality IMO.
    Have a look at the Hankcles Travel Cosmetics Bag which has a gorgeous and practical design
