It’s a KonMari world and we’re just living in it. But if parting with your makeup sends you into a spiral of panic (let’s be honest, all 73 of those mascaras spark joy), consider simply giving your beloved beauty products their own “proper place” — one that isn’t “somewhere in that one Ziploc under my bed.” These makeup bags will help create some semblance of organization in your life, whether you’re at home or on the go.
The one that’s easy to clean
If you are prone to spills, loose caps, and other makeup-related mishaps, Stephanie Johnson’s line of clear and liquid-resistant bags will help you consistently look like you have your shit together. If you’re more into makeup-makeup rather than no-makeup makeup, the jumbo version is just as bright and swipe-able.
The one that’s good at traveling
This well-rounded bag comes with two removable zippered cubes, a flat cosmetic pouch, and protected brush holders, making it both a solid way to clean up your sink or vanity at home and a useful travel companion.
The one that’ll make life easier
The one that won’t get squished
The stylish one that’s surprisingly spacious
If you’re looking for a makeup bag that you’d be comfortable pulling out in public, this nylon pouch is for you. It’s the perfect middle-of-the-road size for holding the essentials with some room to spare, and it comes in six beautiful shades so it looks really good doing so.
The chill one that’s also surprisingly spacious
This no-frills travel bag has a similar exterior zip and interior layout as the Rebecca Minkoff one, but it’s half the price.
The one that lets you think you’re more organized than you really are
If you’re still struggling to get it together, fake it ‘til you make it with this fun contraption. Simply throw all your crap onto the flat circle, tuck a few of the cylindrical things into the straps, then pull the drawstring to create a bag. Once you get to wherever you’re going, re-flatten the bag to quickly see what you packed without having to dump it all onto a bed.
The one that’s good for stacking
This roomy, section-free zip-up is ideal for stacking, storing, and transporting things that take up a lot of space, like your ever-growing collection of eye shadow palettes, highlighter palettes, and contouring palettes, all with room to spare for some bottles, too. Good luck choosing between all the fun colors it comes in!
The one that lets you choose your own adventure
This customizable carry-all comes with plenty of pouches and an impressive seven sections. The sections are made up of removable dividers so you can customize and create the seven divisions best suited to your makeup collection or current mood.
The Photogenic One
If your life isn’t that much of a mess and you just want to carry all those expensive essentials in an equally luxe container, Pop & Suki’s zip case is lovely to look at: It’s soft, sleek, and shaped like a squoval (the most flattering of nail shapes). It can even be customized to say anything you want, like RBF or “Get Bangs.”
