There’s a certain Goldilocks-like feeling to choosing a makeup kit. Some are too small. Some are too large. Some are irregularly shaped and never lay flat in a suitcase. Some are made out of cloth. Some are made out of crinkly plastic. But the Jonathan Cohen x Shu Uemura Art of Hair Beauty Bag is just right. It has a Dopp kit–inspired shape with dual zippers on each side. Designer Jonathan Cohen used his whimsical and refined eye for print to choose a Yves Klein blue “Dripping Dots” pattern. And the bag has black-canvas Europrene lining, a scubalike material that’s water-resistant and much chicer than nylon, on the inside (so you won’t see spills). It’s also the perfect size to ensure you have Shu Uemura–shiny hair at all times.
