Traveling is one of the most exhilarating and enriching experiences in life, but most (not all) travelers will agree that packing is the exact opposite. After double checking your suitcase to ensure everything is packed up and there is nothing essential left behind, including makeup, skincare, tools, and more that we can not live without. But arriving at the destination and finding my brand new foundation leaking all over my luggage is a nightmare for me! Fortunately, there is one thing that can make it all effortlessly: a trusty makeup bag for travel.
The best makeup bag should check all the boxes: have roomy storage for all your products, be portable enough for a touch-up at any time, and be small enough to stuff in your luggage. If you are on the hunt for a makeup bag for your next trip, keep scrolling to pick your favorite.
1. The Foldable Toiletry Bag - Mauve
$24 AT IHKWIP
The main role of a toiletry bag is to act like a barrier to protect against any leakage and spills to other belongings. This toilet kit bag is made from super lightweight, water-repellent nylon materials, making it perfect for holding liquids and lotions while on the go. It is soft, so you are able to fold it down completely when it is out of use to save more space.
Features a roomy compartment and a sturdy handle for comfortably carrying, Bosidu’s toiletry tote bag can easily fit all your favorite essentials yet is small enough to stash in your carry-all tote bag. You can easily see and grab every item without having to dig through all your stuff.
We love Bosidu floral cosmetic bag because it is ultra-functional. With four clear compartments, it can house tons of cosmetics and toiletries. A built-in hook allows you to hang anywhere, so you don’t have to dump out all your products into the hotel sink and leave a mess on it.
