If the lines at TSA are stressful because you know you've overpacked, you're in the right place. Sometimes you have more than just a few toiletry items with you, and that's okay! You just need the proper storage for all the lip products, serums, sunscreens, and other random tiny objects that you just can't seem to travel without. For that you need a bag, tote, pouch or storage solution that can withstand days of vacation beauty rituals ranging from infrared lights to eye masks.

Incidentally, I was raised by an international flight attendant, so it just so happens that I know a thing or two about accessibility, convenience, and a 10-step night routine on a red eye flight. So, I was able to sort through the hundreds of makeup bags on the market and select some of my favorites. Whether you are a mascara-and-moisturizer type or a full-glam makeup guru, I've got you covered. Read on for the 12 best travel makeup bags.
