True beauty lovers know that wherever you go, your makeup follows. It's a tight-knit relationship. When you go without your favorite products and miss them when you're away, you don't feel complete. Okay, enough with the sob story; the point is that beauty junkies need their go-to products with them in times of need. This is why makeup travel bags are extremely essential. To avoid feeling like you're missing something, keep this thing close at all times. 

We're talking traveling anywhere: to work, drinks, a date, or across the country. If we're being honest, Team Byrdie has lost count of how many makeup travel bags we own. (One can never have enough.) And the thing with makeup bags is that you go through them quickly because products can get a little messy. So there's always room for a backup. You love your makeup products, don't you? Treat them with care in a makeup bag that catches your eye. Click through for our all-time faves that are conveniently clutch when we're on the move. 

I can attest to how clutch this makeup pouch is. It might look small, but it can literally fit my five essential products: foundation, concealer, mascara, blush, brow pencil, and brow gel. All you need to whip up a nice face beat. It's genuine leather, so it's not going to feel bulky in your bag.
