People know how to buy their makeup but fail to purchase the right container for it. Admit it, this was your case, too? You shopped for makeup, they had a space in your vanity but whenever you would travel or had to bring them around, you wouldn’t really know where to put them that you end up using a Zip lock! Yes, I’ve been there before.
Makeup bags are important. Your beauty items, whether they’re drugstore or luxury, cost a lot. So please protect them. Add the fact that if something in your makeup bag breaks and spills, then all your other products will get stained.
Where you put your makeup is as important as your makeup!
If you’re looking for one, here is a list of the best luxury makeup bags that I’ve personally tried myself!
This is the perfect personal makeup bag for everyday. I use this for work a lot because I only bring with me the basics. I can fit in here my retouch powder, my quartet eyeshadow, my favorite mini mascara from Benefit, a brow pencil, my lipstick for the day and a few brushes as well. This is perfect to carry inside my large tote bag as well.
Made with 100% Bovine leather and 100% polyester lining, this pouch is still my go-to because it has never been damaged in the past 16 months. There are stains here and there but I can easily remove stains with a cotton pad and micellar water. If you have leather cleansers, you may use that as well.
When I don’t bring makeup with me, I double purpose this as a case for my cables such as headphones, chargers and even memory cards. I like to film and take photos when travelling so this is perfect for you if you are a vlogger as well.
This beauty case is what I bring with me for events. It has solid casing so I can be sure that nothing inside gets damaged. There are two huge compartments inside. I use one compartment for my luxury razors, fluids and creams such as moisturizers, cleansers, toners, alcohol, foundations, concealers and hair products. The other compartment is reserved for my solids such as pressed pans, tools, brushes and even hair non-consumable essentials.
It actually looks like a pro makeup artist kit because of its black faux-leather exterior. A lot of my friends who are makeup artists take this with them whenever they have small gigs – those that don’t require them to bring bulky things such as airbrush machines and the like.
It has six slip pockets where I put my important stuff like money, cards and all so I won’t need to bring a bulky wallet with me anymore. It really fits everything I need as I’m tasked to do my family’s makeup whenever we have events.
This one’s really pretty! I like sleek and minimal designs for my makeup kits. This one doesn’t fit that much though since it’s only 10cm high so it’s also like the Ted Maker one. I only use this for retouching purposes but it does carry everything I need. You can even use this as a clutch for formal and casual events.
It zips all around though so just be careful because stuff might fall-off. But it does have a protective clothing sewn on the inside.
What a great investment this makeup bag is. I’ve suggested to my friends to also purchase this for themselves. This is THE BEST for travelling.
Not only does this bag carry your makeup essentials, it can also carry all your toiletries. Personally, I like how it spreads out and opens up into a flat case where all the contents of the bag is displayed. No need to scour inside for what you’re looking for. I am able to fit mini sized versions of everything I need here from foundations to perfumes and everything in between.
You can also use this to keep your digital stuff. I can put my small tablet in here, cables, chargers, memory cards and it’s easy to keep them inside because of the number of compartments available. This makeup bag can also double up as a luxury wash bag.
The best part? It’s a wipe-clean product! So perfect for lazy people like me!
Let me be honest with you guys. I saw this and didn’t even care for how I would use it because it just speaks volumes about my personality. It’s cute and edgy and very nice to look at. And out of all the luxury makeup bags listed here, this is the least expensive so I’ve bought several to give my friends and they love it, too!
It’s a very wide bag (13 cm to be exact) and is perfect for you if you carry around bulky makeup or beauty products such as baking powder, kabuki brushes, bottled foundation and the like. And to be honest, everyone needs a statement pouch.
Luxury Makeup Bags Conclusion
Shopping for a makeup bag isn’t that complicated. Although there is an overwhelming number of choices for luxury makeup bags, there are a lot of reviews you can find to help you choose the right one.
There are pouches which are essentially small makeup bags for your personal kit. You know, the everyday must-haves such as your base makeup, blush, mascara, lip product and products for retouching.
There are the travel pouches which aid in keeping your cosmetics organized when going from one place to another. Usually these are the ones with a lot of compartments in it. A personal favorite for people with mild OCD like me.
And then there are the really bulky ones which are perfect for people who want to do this as a profession. I’ve seen a lot of makeup artists who invest in expensive luxury makeup bags because they know that it will last them a lifetime. Plus, the reality is, if you do makeup as a profession, you will need something that’s sturdy due to the weight of all your makeup and tools!
Either way, luxury makeup bags are a great way to be stylish and clutter-free at the same time!
