7 Travel-Friendly Makeup Bags That Are Pretty AF
You could throw all your beauty loot into a Ziploc bag and call it a day… or you could keep it organized and travel-ready with a cute AF cosmetic toiletry bag. So even though all our summer plans have been put on hold, if you’re doing a safe staycay or adventurous mini-break (or just staying home), these seven gorgeous makeup bags are here for you. Ranging from petite-sized for light travelers to heftier options for those who wouldn’t dare leave anything behind (AKA us), these bags will keep your makeup in perfect order wherever you take it!
1. Beis The Cosmetic Case, $58
Shay Mitchell isn’t just an actress – she’s a boss babe who started her own luggage company. Given that she’s the epitome of grace and style it’s no surprise her entire collection is dreamy. The Cosmetic Case, which comes in beige, black, matcha green, and pink, is particularly thoughtful. Not only is it spill-proof (essential), it comes with a removable brush holder, a sleek mirror, and a zip compartment for better organization.
2. Sonia Kashuk New Gold Train Case, $20
This glittery gold train case is the perfect option for those who like to travel with lots of toiletries. It features a large primary compartment that holds bigger items such as skincare products, foundation, palettes, and sunscreen, and it also has a second smaller compartment and interior mesh zip pocket for your smaller items. It’s also been designed with eight elastic loops for your cosmetic brushes and pencils. We love that it’s a structured bag that’ll sit pretty wherever you may roam.
3. Kylie Lips Travel Case, $27
If anyone knows exactly how to design a travel toiletry bag that’s as cute as it is functional, it’s Kylie Jenner. The exterior features a juicy pout that’s very in line with the Kylie aesthetic, but the interior is pretty sweet, too. It comes with three zip compartments for major organization, and it even has a little hook so you can hang the bag anywhere there’s a handle. Genius!
4. Away The Mini, $45
Away’s “The Minis” collection is so popular it’s been an instant sell-out the last four drops. They’re basically the mini-me version of the brand’s super iconic hard-shell (polycarbonate) suitcases, hence the name. The Mini comes in a large range of colors and features a zipper closure, interior mesh pocket, elastic strap, and a D-Ring so you can attach it to a keychain.
Type-A friends who prefer an ultra-organized toiletry bag will enjoy this option. It comes with flexible Velcro dividers to help compartmentalize all your skincare products and cosmetics. It also features a separate compartment for your makeup brush, is waterproof, and is made from a lightweight but sturdy material (gotta hit those luggage weight goals). If you’re not into the flamingo print, there are six other options including solid black, stripes, and florals.
Those who tend to travel light don’t need much in terms of storage space, so a simple, single-compartment toiletry bag ought to do the trick. This holographic option will make you happy every time you see it, and the convenient loaf shape means it’ll fit more stuff (including long brushes!). It has a full zip closure so nothing can escape.
7. Paravel See-All Vanity Case, $95
Sometimes you just want to see what you’ve got, and in those cases a transparent toiletry bag is the way to go. Paravel’s version is super chic and thoughtfully designed. In addition to the clear, easy-to-wipe down material, it’s made with your choice of cotton canvas or nylon, and it has beautiful leather accents. If you’re feeling splurge-y you can have the bag monogrammed for $15 to $45 extra bucks. Note that the bag also comes in a mini version for $65 if you’re a light packer.
