No man is created equal and neither are cosmetic bags. They may seem like an insignificant accessory, but actually, for the woman on the go they are a necessity. Functionality, color, material and (no matter what any one says) size do matter, especially when selecting the proper cosmetic bag for your needs. Whether you’re style is lux and fabulous or stylish and practical, there’s a bag that will suit your needs.

For the girl who has everything . . .
Bottega Veneta Leather Cosmetic Case offers their signature woven leather design with a modern twist. An easy magnetic closure and a nylon lining makes it a snap to clean and a cinch to close.

For the minimalist . . .
The clean lines on the simple square case with one easy zipper by Gucci is cool and sleek in black.

For the practical diva . . .
The Stephanie Johnson Sunset Boulevard cosmetic bag (pictured here in bronze) offers just enough glitz and glamour for the diva at heart but without breaking the bank!

For the label lover . . .
The Gucci logo cosmetic bag is perfect for any fashionista on the go. With great hardware and quality craftsmanship, this bag is sure to withstand the typical wear and tear of most bags.

For the woman that loves to reapply . . .
The cylinder shaped Marc by Marc Jacobs cosmetic bag is perfect for carrying those hard-to-fit makeup brushes, whilst still offering enough room for all the extras!

For the rock-n-roll princess . . .
Juicy Couture’s gothic-print cosmetic bag epitomizes style and functionality while keeping beauty essentials organized. The interior houses three zip pouches which is perfect for categorizing beauty products.

For the organizer . . .
Laura Mercier Double Pocket Faux Leather Cosmetic Bag offers two pockets perfect for organizing brushes and cosmetics.

Once you’ve selected the ideal bag follow these tips to ensure you’re getting the best use of your bag:

• Try and opt for a lined bag, ideally waterproof. This will allow you to clean your bag when the inevitable lipstick or eyeshadow mishaps come into play.

• Make sure the bag suits your style and needs. If you typically reapply blush or eyeshadow frequently throughout the day, make sure you have a bag that can accommodate your brushes. If you carry several items, you might want to find a bag that is compartmentalized to make finding your products while on the go a breeze.

• Items like these are a must for every bag: travel size lotion, lip gloss, mini/travel dental floss, baby wipes (great for certain stains and bag clean up among other things) and mascara.
