Do you love makeup but don't know how to carry it on the go?
Does the fear of spills and leaks not let you travel with a free mind? Wouldn't it be amazing to find a one-stop solution to solve all your travel-with-cosmetics issues? Well, hop on, I got your back!
Allow me to introduce you to some of the best cosmetic bags and cases.
Let's talk about what the exactly are, first.
You'd be lying if you told me that you've never seen those boxy bags beauty gurus keep their makeup in. Yes! We call them Cosmetic Bags.
We all have different preferences when it comes to beauty essentials. While some may prefer their skincare and haul of sunscreens, others might love tons of lipsticks and eyeshadow pallets.
Who wouldn't like a different lipstick shade for every outfit? Or perhaps a different shade of eyeshadow matching other pairs of heels? Trust me; there's nothing wrong with wanting to keep some touch-up along with you during travel.
Carrying all your makeup and skincare essentials while traveling with the fear of them spilling ruining your things can be an extreme version of chaos.
Meet Cosmetic Bags and Cases.
Generally, they have a cubical box-like structure with a zipper along the lid. This zipper opens up to a spacious interior where you can place the grooming tools such as brushes or nail enamels and perhaps some accessories.
The inner walls include pockets of different shapes and sizes, a perfect place to keep all your immediate cosmetic needs, such as lipsticks, perfumes, or sunscreens.
What are cosmetic cases used for?
Imagine that you're traveling in a cab, and it stops at a red light — what a perfect opportunity for you to finally touch up with some red lipstick. You reach out for the lipstick that's kept inside your purse.
After a whole 120 seconds of playing touch and guess, you finally sense lipstick. You take out your lipstick but oh no! It's that lip balm Karen gifted you on your 15th birthday.
The struggle doesn't end here. Imagine that you finally reach your destination and open your suitcase just to find clothes covered in foundation.
You see, that's the issue when you're traveling; to keep your makeup organized and safe.
You don't want to grab a bronzer when reaching for compact, do you? And besides, you also wouldn't want your outfits bathing in your skincare oils.
Cosmetic Bags can save you from this commotion.
These little boxes of joy will store all your makeup, skincare essentials, and accessories for you. They'll keep your makeup organized and your clothes safe from leaks and spills while you enjoy your travel.
(P.S. if you love dressing up, these chic and classy cases can help you make a fashion statement.)
Who should buy Cosmetic Bags and Cases?
No, there are no eligibility criteria to find out whether you should buy them or not, but I can say this one is for my people who love makeup and do some traveling.
Along with that, can you imagine shoving four eyeshadow pallets, a ton of lipsticks, blush, bronzer, compact, foundation, brushes, gloss, and highlighter all in your purse at once? If the answer is no, it's high time you invest in a Cosmetic Bag.
My boss ladies who travel from work to home, from home to work, that one travel blogger going from city to city, or perhaps the makeup artist who still hasn't figured out how to carry makeup in an organized way, this is for you! Cosmetic
Bags can be a solution to all your packing needs when it comes to beauty essentials.
