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.
