The 10 Best make-up bags

Stash your slap, lotions and potions in a style that suits you with one of these colourful cosmetics purses

1. Superdrug

£2.99, Superdrug, superdrug.com

Those who can't get enough of leopard print might like to match their underwear and coat with this. At less than £3, it's a steal.

2. ZPM

£10, ZPM, zpm.com

This company has a huge range of co cases in all manner of shape and size from those that mimic old-school pencil to multi-pocketed designs.

3. Muji

£3.95, Muji, muji.eu

Open any session make-up artist's kit and you'll find their skincare and cosmetics neatly packed away in little pouches which, more often than not, are these zip cases from Muji.

4. Prada

£85, Prada, prada.com

You might like to double up and make this your posh soap bag too, but there's no reason why this silk draw-string purse can't be used as your daily cosmetics bag too.

5. Lanvin

£355, Lanvin, net-a-porter.com

Let's face it, if you can afford a Lanvin handbag, then the matching make-up carrier probably won't be a problem either.

6. Monki

£15, Monki, Monki.com

H&M's Swedish sister Monki's collection is so cheeky it's difficult not to fall in love with their quirky make-up bags, including this unusual cork effect one.

7. Biba

£59, Biba, houseoffraser.co.uk

Embossed with the instantly recognisable print from the Biba heyday, this leather make-up bag in apple green is ideal for those who like the look of vintage.

8. Ted Baker

£22, Ted Baker, tedbaker.com

Weightlifting rabbits, a bulldog on a sailboat and flocks of bemedalled geese are just some of the surreal illustrations on this vinyl make-up bag from Ted Baker.

9. Pierre Hardy

£130, Pierre Hardy, net-a-porter.com

We've lusted after his shoes and coveted his handbags and iPhone covers, so we can't wait to get our hands on one of his make-up bags.

10. Benefit

£22.50, Benefit, benefitcosmetics.co.uk

The handbag-sized version of the Benefit make-up bag will contain most of your favourite cosmetics if a quick touch-up is in order.
