Is anyone else wary of storing beauty products in their checked-in bag when traveling? I have this (logical) fear that an airline will lose my luggage, permanently separating me from my treasured beauty babies. As a result, I stuff everything in my purse, restricting me to a life of travel-sized items — but you better believe my mind is at ease.
But that ease vanishes upon landing at my destination, leaving me wishing I only had the full-size face oil that I had to leave behind (and thereby relinquishing that could-be vacation glow). Celebrity makeup artist Kirin Bhatty, who works with Awkwafina and Jenny Slate, comes to the skincare junkie’s rescue.
Bhatty uses a small suitcase as a makeup kit — genius, I know. “Every time I have a new assistant, they always have a new way to figure out the Tetris of my kit. It changes a lot,” she says. “I think if you ask any makeup artist, we are always looking for a better way to get our makeup kits organized and make it lighter.”
Naturally, post-conversation I went on a mission to find the best travel bag to store makeup. And then I stumbled upon the Calpak vanity case, which is designed specifically to store your favorite beauty products. (It can also be used as the perfect overnight bag.) The result of investing in organized beauty? Everyone at the sleepover will gawk at your organizational ability — they bring an overflowing duffle, but you, my organized queen, bring a hard-shelled vanity case with zippered compartments.
Both practical and beautiful, this lightweight case comes in eight colors: milk marble, midnight marble, black, trnk black, grey, nude, rose gold, and gold.
Buy it today and get to your next travel destination in one (beauty) piece.
