Whether you subscribe to the no-makeup makeup look, and use little more than concealer and some Boy Brow, or the yes-to-makeup look, and own an arsenal of products, everyone needs a way to keep their beauty regimen, well, regimented. Unlike a travel makeup bag or dopp kit, which travels with you only on vacations, makeup bags stay put on bathroom counters, occasionally getting tossed into a gym bag.
To find the best ones — the ones designed to hold all manner of brushes, compacts, and bottles, and stay clean in the face of spills and lost caps — we tracked down some notable makeup artists to find out about their preferred storage techniques. From a Prada pouch — recommended by Daniel Martin, who did Meghan Markle’s makeup on her wedding day — to a $15 Monda Studio pick from Gigi Hadid’s go-to artist, here are recommendations in a range of styles, sizes, and price points.
