Full disclosure: I have a stash of pink Glossier pouches that double as makeup bags.
While it suits me and looks freaking adorable when I travel, the bags don’t hold up to a ton of repeated use – the zippers break, the plastic rips across the seams. I’m a major Glossier stan and so the pile is constantly replenishing itself, but still. It’s time for a more permanent solution.
Whether you carry makeup in your purse for touch-ups, travel often, or just have separation anxiety when it comes to products like I do, you need a solid makeup bag (or, like, five). If you already have a few lying around and you’re simply not reaching for them, you’re probably ready for an upgrade.
As with all important purchases, you want to think long and hard about you really need. Will your makeup bag be used for daily staples or is this more of a carry-on luggage type of thing? Once you figure it out, read on for the Internet’s top five makeup bag picks.
Here are the best makeup bags you can buy:
- Best makeup bag overall: Eagle Creek Pack-It Cube Set
- Best leather makeup bag: Cuyana Leather Travel Case Set
