Good, better, best: Travel makeup organizers you need to have

Preparing for your next trip is always exciting. Whether you’re jumping across the state for an overnight visit or across the world for a two-week expedition, leaving the house is always a thrill.

Traveling can be stressful, though, and figuring out what to pack certainly doesn’t help. This is especially true when it comes to your makeup: To ensure you can keep up your glam routine, it’s just about necessary to bring your favorite cleansers, moisturizers, foundations, and eyeshadow palettes. However, no one wants to open their luggage and find their favorite Sephora finds leaking or broken at the bottom of the bag. Don’t resort to leaving your favorite pieces at home quite yet. We found the best travel makeup bags so you can stay selfie-ready all trip long.

Good: Lay-n-Go COSMO Cosmetic Bag

The Lay-n-Go COSMO Cosmetic Bag is a space saver’s dream. If you’re working with a small amount of space in your luggage, this is made for you. It comes in two pattern options and two solid color options, so you can certainly find one that matches your style (and your suitcase).

This machine-washable bag opens to a 20-in. mat so you can see all of your products at once. When unfolded, this mat also has a raised lip, so you don’t have to worry about your products rolling off it. Last, this bag has a zippered pocket to secure smaller items like rings and elastic bands safely. At only $19,99, it’s not a bad deal either.

Why we like it:

  • It works well when you’re traveling light
  • When unfolded, you can see all items at once
  • It has a zippered pocket for smaller items

Better: Sephora Collection Pack It All Organizer

The Sephora Collection Pack It All Organizer is for those who can’t decide what to take, so they take everything. This spacious organizer has clear pockets, elastic fasteners, and little baskets to keep things organized. Even better, the bag comes with two removable zippered cube-shaped bags and another removable, flat zippered bag. With this level of organization, you can easily keep track of your products and, with the removable packs, you don’t have to lug the whole bag to the bathroom mirror for your skincare routine.

At $45, it’s not a bad price for this heavy-duty travel case. The reviews are absolutely raving, so we have no doubts about making this our go-to travel bag for those days we need full glam.

Why we like it:

  • It’s great for travelers who like to be prepared for anything
  • It has an array of clear pockets, elastic fasteners, and baskets to keep your things organized
  • It comes with several removable bags that you can tote around as needed

Best: Stephanie Johnson Cairo White Louise Travel Makeup Bag

The Stephanie Johnson Cairo White Louise Travel Makeup Bag is the best quality, longest-lasting option of the bunch. It’s the most expensive, but it’s so durable you won’t have to buy a new bag every time you go to pack. This fancy case has a top handle for easy grabbing, a two-way top zipper, elastic brush holders, zip-to-close pockets, and so much more.

This is slightly smaller than the Sephora version, so as long as you aren’t bringing your entire bathroom with you, this will be perfect. This is definitely the move for traveling in luxury, so give your makeup the first-class treatment, even if you’re riding in coach this time around.

Why we like it:

  • It’s durable
  • It’s top-carry handle makes it easy to transport
  • It offers an interior zip pocket, brush loops and other features to keep you organized

All the travel makeup organizers on this list will make sure you can take all your beauty essentials without sacrificing too much room in your luggage. Now, all you need to do is book that trip and get packing.
