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
£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.
£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.
£3.95, 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.
£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.
£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.
£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.
£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.
£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.
