Personal makeup cases, also known as train cases, are the perfect way to travel in style and keep your cosmetics organized. Even if you never leave town you can still use a train case to organize jewelry, cosmetics, and hair accessories. Not only do they look stylish in any bathroom but they also keep the clutter off your counters and vanity. Gone are the ugly vanity cases from twenty years ago. Train cases come in all shapes and styles right down to some being pink or leopard print!

Looking for the perfect gift? A train case filled with goodies for a new mom, bride, or college girl is the perfect start to a new future. This is one gift that will not be thrown in a closet.

So many cases:

There are cases small enough for a weekend trip and some so large you could tour the world. I am just going to stick with smaller cases that any woman can pick up and run away with.

Best of the Best:

These cases are the ultimate in luxury and status as well as the ultimate in excellent craftsmanship. Words of caution: if you are going to stow your train case under the plane when traveling by air be aware that locking luggage is forbidden. There are some TSA approved locks, but if the airline wants to, they will break the lock.

The best personal make up cases offer a way to carry your essentials when you travel. With these best makeup bags recommendations, you keep everything organized and protect your cosmetics on the road.
