Let’s be honest. Very few women only own one makeup bag. There’s one bag for the purse (if not two). There’s one for weekend trips; one for makeup brushes and one for the eye shadow palettes … the list goes on and on. Knowing this, I am always on the look out for a better makeup bag. I have my own big collection of bags, some of which are GREAT makeup bags and others that sort of fall apart as soon as I start using them.

They all have high user ratings online for durability, user friendliness and they’re all under $50. Here are the top 5 best makeup bags.
This all-around beauty bag is a double zip makeup bag providing two separate compartments – one for makeup brushes and one for makeup. This keeps everything succinctly separate. No more worrying about excess makeup getting on your brushes. Also, this bag is a nice size. Though it’s too large for a purse, it fits very well in a suitcase or as a solo carrying item as the zipper is firm and it zips fully.
Best Hanging Makeup Bag
This hanging travel makeup bag is one of those that every girl needs. It unfolds to show multiple compartments for makeup, brushes, toiletries and all else. Then, it folds up into a nice little case with cute little flowers on the front. The exterior is water-resistant which is nice for leaving it in the bathroom, and it’s made of a durable material that won’t break easily or wear over time.
Best Small Makeup Bag
So many small makeup bags exist, but every few are simply as darling as this one. The side says: “Give a woman the right make-up & she can conquer the world.” By the way, this is so true. When you flip this little bag around, the front has lipstick kisses that are just as darling as the back side. This bag is made of cotton and is machine washable. It will also fit in just about every single bag you could pick – purse, suitcase, carry-on, etc.
Best Large Makeup Organizer
This large makeup organizer is the queen of all organizers for woman who works as a makeup artist or simply has a wide array of makeup to carry around. This case that is surprisingly inexpensive for the size and usability, has compartments for everything from brushes to lipstick, eye shadow, cosmetics, skincare, nail art, hair curlers/straighteners and jewelry. The case is completely water-proof and is shake-proof. Even if you drop this thing, it will be difficult to hurt your makeup.
Best Travel Toiletry/Cosmetic Bag
This last bag is a catch all bag. I talked about it first as a must-have gift that all travelers want but don’t buy themselves. This bag is durable, easy to wash and doesn’t have any zippers. This is the perfect bag to carry liquid makeup or toiletries when traveling, It will hold everything in place and avoid leaks. And, when you’re not using it, just fold it up and tuck it in a pocket. This bag is that easy.
