Makeup Cases To Travel With

We all have different ways of dealing with shuttling our cosmetic essentials from place to place. We asked our writers for their favorite travel cosmetic bags – the results are below, and conveniently, each caters to a different makeup-case priority. What do you look for in a travel case?

We asked about our writers’ favorite overnight bags and jewelry cases, too – see them here.

Travel makeup cases see thru

See-Through: Stephanie Johnson Jumbo Zip Cosmetic, $31 at Stephanie Johnson
If you’re packing a bunch of little things, this pretty PVC bag – the stripes are screened on top of transparent material – will make them all a lot easier to find.

Travel makeup cases inexpensive

Inexpensive: Ann Mille Floral Print Cosmetic Bag, $6 at Amazon
Not so keen on investing in a makeup case? We understand – this lightweight, plastic-lined version is even long enough to fit most brushes.

Travel makeup cases sleek

Sleek: Sephora Vinyl Double Handle Makeup Bag
, $38 at Sephora
This sizeable Sephora case almost looks like a handbag, so you can tote it as a second carry-on (excuse me – as your “personal item”) when you head for the airport.
