It’s the holidays, and for a lot of us that means hitting the airways or the road. I’ve been using the same makeup travel bag for a few years now, and I love it! Check it out (and I made sure to leave it nice and dirty to preserve the authenticity of its long lifespan of usage).
My favorite part of the bag: the built in brush holder. No need to carry a separate brush roll. It even has a protective flap to keep any makeup dust away from your products, and the brush slots come in different sizes to accommodate both face and eye brushes.
I like the way the whole thing is laid out. The three mesh pockets (two of them are zippered to keep the contents nice and secure) are set in just the right locations.
The entire bag also rolls up nicely and stays wrapped with an elastic band, so you can really stuff it with products.
I’m still amazed by how well this bag has held up over the years (knock on wood!)
You might be surprised by to find out that this amazing makeup bag comes to us from Mary Kay, and more amazing still is that it’s not actually sold on its own but rather as an accessory to their brush set.
The brushes themselves are just OK, definitely great for a starter set, but not quite the same quality as others I’ve used in the same price range (like Sigma brushes).
So, while I kinda-sorta like the brush set, I absolutely ADORE the makeup bag!
What’s a girl to do? The answer: get the whole set! The brushes are still very versatile and nice for a separate travel kit.
Oh, if you don’t mind being a little sneaky, rumor has it you can sometimes find the makeup bag by itself on ebay.
So there’s my favorite travel makeup bag. How do you travel with your makeup?
