If you can't decide what to bring on your trip, why not get a cosmetic bag that can store all of it?
A makeup bag might seem like a simple purchase—how can you really go wrong?—but according to Real Simple’s Beauty Director, Didi Gluck, all of them are not created equal. Didi loves this Hudson and Bleecker one because it’s generously sized, but not bulky and the faux snakeskin material is sturdy so it won’t get squished if you stuff it in a suitcase. The case also has a devoted brush pouch, so your makeup brushes won’t ever get caught in the bag’s zipper. And finally, the detachable water-resistant interior pouch is great for storing jewelry or hair accessories when you’re on the go.
You can purchase the bag just below the video, or by going here. If you're a first-time shopper, you can use the code REALJOY at checkout for 10% off, plus free shipping on orders of $50 or more. Real Simple is an affiliate partner of Joyus.
