The Best Clear Cosmetic Cases For Travel

For stress-free travel, clear travel cosmetic cases offer a stylish way to organise all your travelling essentials, from makeup to skincare and SPF.

While some airports will still ask you to decant your beauty essentials into the (less chic) plastic bags at security, a structured clear case will allow you to easily sort and identify your products throughout your travels. Plus, many use a transparent PVC fabric that is super easy to clean, minimising the effects of spills.

From Anya Hindmarch to Cult Beauty, these are the best clear cosmetic cases and bags for all your travel adventures.


The Anya Hindmarch classic clear cosmetic bag has two compartments meant for 'take off' and 'touch down', so you can organise all your travel essentials and avoid rummaging through your bag constantly. It is made from recycled nylon with leather trims that are available in two colourways: black and pink. 


This mini version of the Paravel See-All cosmetics case features a transparent wrap-around panel that makes identifying your cosmetics easy, while the vegan leather casing and two-way zip fastening keep your bag looking super chic.


This cosmetic case allows you to pack in so much skincare and makeup that you'll never feel like you've left any of your favourites behind. As sturdy as it is elegant, it unzips from the middle, so you have two large components to fill with all your beauty essentials. The smaller, still transparent, compartments inside make keeping everything organised really simple too.



From makeup to skincare, The White Company's signature white and pale grey case helps you store all your under 100ml travel essentials. The clear PVC is also very easy to wipe clean so you don't have to be concerned about accidental spills and smears.


With a wide transparent top panel and texturised faux croc leather trimmings, VIEVE's cosmetic case is the perfect size for all your travel makeup. Long and wide enough for larger bottles of foundation and brushes – packaging, storing and finding your essentials comes with minimal stress.



Wipe-friendly and with wide clear panels, the Cult Beauty glossy transparent bag is a great way to store all your favourite beauty essentials from the retailer and beyond. It is also designed to easily squash down when not full, saving room in your suitcase without crushing more fragile products.


Designed by a makeup artist for makeup lovers, this box-shaped clear bag has useability at its heart. It is large enough for all your holiday beauty essentials and the handle makes carrying and pulling it out of a full suitcase simple, too. Moreover, its sturdy design means you can fill it up without worrying about straining zips or weak seams.


ASOS combines transparency with neon colour, for practicality with a side of fun. The case is oversized – perfect for anyone who struggles to edit down their beauty collection when travelling. That means you can squeeze in that extra bottle of SPF, or a few more statement lipsticks.


This vegan leather-trimmed pouch is perfect for organising your smaller makeup items, and for anyone who likes to travel light when it comes to their beauty essentials. What's more it is likely to fit inside your handbag, so it's just the ticket for hand-luggage only travellers.


This compact box bag has semi-transparent middle panels so it may be slightly harder to see into when not up-close, but it's cleverly designed to completely unzip and lay flat, so there's still no rummaging to find all your products. It also makes packing easier as you can simply zip up the bag around your cosmetics.


This trio of clear cosmetics cases has a simple design that is unlikely to raise eyebrows at security (hopefully keeping those plastic bags at bay), but its still a stylish storage solution due to the metallic trim. It also means you can quickly separate out your toiletries, including your smaller makeup from your skincare.
