Makeup essential

The month of May has certainly been a fun one with all my travel adventures!  I have many pictures and tales to share soon after travel weekend number three, which begins Friday for another friend's wedding.

I do find that I like to travel in style, while also staying organized. Today's suggestion is a good makeup case. I find that I need one that isn't too small so that I can fit my regular day-to-day makeup, but can also allow for any extra special occasion makeup (while also fitting in my suitcase or tote bag!). I also like a sturdy bag and if it has a wipeable liner, that's also a big plus. And it, of course, must be cute and coordinating!

Right now I am lusting after this Vineyard Vines train case. I have not seen it in person so it may be too large to fit in a suitcase, but it would be great for storing my makeup.

If the train case is too big to travel with, the adorable pina colada bag looks to be the perfect size. Just the thing for a tropical vacation!

The gingham bag is adorable as well. Besides using it for travel, it's the perfect size to throw in your work bag or to store other items in your purse.


Which is your favorite? I just may have to make one of these mine!  :)

I've been lusting over the large make-up case! I'll have to go take a look at it in person.

I like the second one best :)

Those are all really cute. Let me know if you see that VV in person and if it's too big.

I use an old Vera Bradley one that has the wipeable inside...totally worth having. I think I've washed it too which is nice after all the miles on it.
