There are many travel makeup styles—the ultra-minimalist with just lipstick and mascara, the maximalist who feels bereft without their full kit of beauty products to choose from, the organization nut who craves a designated pouch for everything, the throw-it-in-and-go type who doesn’t mind a mess. No matter what category you fall into, we’ve rounded up the best makeup bags to keep you looking and feeling your best while jet-setting.
