The only thing worse than traveling for the holidays is packing for the holidays. Pre-wrapped presents, ugly sweaters, and, of course, your beauty collection, all have to fit in a carry-on (because who wants to spend extra cash on baggage fees?). But for those with a serious makeup collection, the average Ziploc bag or leftover Glossier pouch just isn’t going to cut it.
From pouches that double as crossbody bags to durable mini vanities, the below cosmetic cases are a godsend for any beauty-obsessed traveller. Why store your essentials in a boring bag when you can use one that looks just as good as the rest of your wardrobe?
