5 Best Train Cases for Makeup Artist Wannabes
So you own approximately 75 lipsticks, 45 brushes and one million palettes — same. Some days this feels really good, like we’re swimming in a sea of beauty products with endless options and a supply of lip gloss that’ll definitely last us a lifetime. But other days, it feels like we need another piece of real estate to house everything, even though we sure as hell know we’re not sending our Urban Decay Naked Palettes to another address. Such woes can be solved by serious organizational methods, one of which is a train case to store our beloved products.
A train case is basically just a smaller piece of luggage meant for housing a ton of beauty products while you travel the globe, or work on set as a makeup artist. They range from laptop-sized bags that double as storage for the gym to luggage-sized cases that transform into a makeup station with lights — ya’ know, casual. Obviously, you don’t need to be a makeup artist to get one, but they’re especially helpful for those who are.
We’ve rounded up five of our favorite train cases to keep on your radar in 2019, in case your makeup supply gets a little out of hand.
