Surgery abroad on the cards? Be sure to pick up a funky makeup travel organizer before you go; check out our top 5 picks.
So, you’re departing on a surgery abroad trip and find yourself unable to fit all your essentials into one holdall. Adding to your frustration, you arrive at the hotel to find that your toiletries have spilled all over your recovery clothes mid-flight. The end result is that you arrive at your chosen clinic sporting a shampoo stained shirt and unwashed hair to boot. What scenario could be more stressful?
We recommend you avoid potential disaster and pick up a makeup travel organizer to keep your items in check. Whether you’re looking for a large makeup travel organizer, a clear makeup travel organizer, or a hanging DIY makeup travel organizer, our selections don’t cost a fortune but could save you a lot of money – and drama – in the long run.

Further Tips On Choosing The Right Makeup Travel Organizer
- Ensure your chosen bag is constructed from nylon and polyester materials which are lightweight and water resistant. Avoid heavy, flammable materials such as linen and cotton.
- Check out the interior of the bag. Mesh pockets allow for good ventilation in hot or humid environments; important if you’ve booked surgery in summer or in an Asian country. Clear plastic zipper compartments can be wiped down and cleaned easily, whereas canvas interiors cannot.
- Some cosmetic travel bags are easier to carry than others. If you’re planning a long term stay or need to carry your bag for long distances, ensure that your makeup travel bag comes with a long handle that can be removed if need be. Shorter handles are great for slipping on airport trolleys and suitcases – just make sure they are sturdy and have enough grip.
- Depending on what kind of interior storage options you’re looking for, the most useful makeup travel organizers are usually split into at least two large compartments with additional elastic bands, zipper pockets and/or velcro flaps for smaller items such as bottles, hair bands and ampoules. Exterior zipper compartments will allow you to quickly fish out essential items on the way there.
Ultimately, a travel makeup bag is a worthy investment for those who are planning an important cosmetic surgery trip. Having a professional travel makeup organizer makes organizing cosmetics and medicines much easier. Makeup travel organizers also lessen the time required to contemplate what to take along, plus you can weigh your bag separately in order to ensure your beauty stash meets your airline’s baggage quota.
