Makeup bags may seem like yet another accessory to weigh down your luggage or fill up precious space in your purse, but they are a necessity in keeping your products and tools in tip-top shape. Now, we’re not talking about toting the behemoth kit pro artist Pat McGrath hauls backstage at Fashion Week, but cute grab-and-go bags that are compact enough to be stashed just about anywhere so you can touch up your red lip at the holiday party or apply makeup in the post-morning rush. Here are eight that we're currently coveting:

Travel Makeup Bags

Soho Beauty

Sephora Collection

Charlotte Tilbury

Catseye London

Breakups to Makeup

Across Africa

Marc by Marc Jacobs

Kate Spade
