When it comes to travel essentials, you don't have to be boring — especially during speak summer travel szn. Not every suitcase needs to be black fabric straight out of corporate America, and not every toiletries bag has to be a silver nylon pouch that looks like a straight-up rock.
One of the most essential travel accessories — beyond a stylish carry-on suitcase — is a makeup bag or cosmetics case that can do it all. And by "do it all," I mean organize your products with zero leakage and look cute on the bathroom vanity.

From clear cosmetics cases so you (and the TSA agents) can see all of your travel-approved products to foldable makeup organizers with a hook, your shopping options are endless. Becoming a stylish and efficient traveler is absolutely within your reach.
Here are some of our favorite makeup bags and cosmetics cases to bring on your next vacation. All you have to do is ball out on new bikinis, plan your airplane outfit and hit the "add to cart" button.
