The Best Vanity Cases

First and foremost, we need a vanity case to be practical – if they’re stylish, then all the better. Right now, the market is awash with options featuring light-up mirrors, travel-friendly detachable compartments and sustainable materials. Here are the ones we rate…

Beautifect Vanity Case, £279

Best For: A bit of everything.

Designed with portability, speed and great lighting in mind, you’ve probably seen this slick vanity case all over social media. Designed to keep your products neatly stored across a range of handy compartments, the in-built mirror is distortion-free and comes with a touchscreen that uses LED lighting technology. In short, it’s the Rolls-Royce of vanity cases. Even the special torque hinge is clever – you can tilt and hold the mirror at any position, while the magnetically attached magnifying mirror allows you to get up close for better precision. A great gift for friends, family and, of course, yourself.

Joseph Joseph All-In-One Cosmetic Organiser, £45

Best For: Easy cleaning.

Ideal for those who prefer functionality over form, the shallow compartments all dismantle, which makes everything easier to clean. There’s also a large drawer, removable trays and a mirror that comes with a magnification attachment. You really can store everything in here – from small items like lip balms and blushers, to larger brushes, mascaras, eyeliners and cotton wool pads. This one covers all the bases.

MAC Cosmetics Carry All Bag With Mirror, £48

Best For: Durability.

There’s a reason lots of pro make-up artists own this one. Not only is it supersized, it’s incredibly durable and lasts forever. Spacious inside, it contains helpful brush holders, as well as a generously sized mirror. It sounds simplistic, but the added hinges mean you can rummage freely without the lid flapping around – a surprisingly helpful feature when time is of the essence.

My Kit Co Backstage Buddy, £45

Best For: Practicality.

Completely transparent, this clever storage bag allows you to see everything inside, so you’re far more likely to use all your products. Generous in size, it has multiple pockets for optimal organisation, as well as a dedicated canvas pocket designed to store all your favourite make-up palettes. We love the front zip, which is intended to store tissues and things like cotton buds.

One Nine 5 Eco Travel Wash Bag, £49

Best For: Regular travellers.

This is one of the most thought-through concepts we’ve come across. Not only is the wash bag roomy, it comes with a removable clear bag that you can use to carry cosmetics and toiletries through the airport – including security. Made from recycled plastic, it’s eco-friendly without being too heavy – another bonus for those constantly on the go. Think of it like a mini suitcase  for your beauty items – it comes in several colours, so you’re bound to find one you like.

Rio Ultimate Beauty Storage Vanity Case, £47

Best For: Storing jewellery too.

A super-sized organiser, this comes with a convenient carry handle so it’s easy to transport, no matter how heavy the contents. Like others on this list, there’s an in-built mirror complete with touch-activated LED lights, while the sliding drawers make it easy to find all your favourite items. There’s even a section designed for tangle-free jewellery storage – bonus.

Roze London Double Luxe Cabin, £69

Best For: Discreet style. 
Designed with style in mind, the compact size of Roze London’s Luxe Cabin means it never looks out of place. With handy drawers, slots and neat compartments, there’s nothing this won’t house. It even comes with a 360º rotating LED mirror that switches from warm yellow to bright white light, depending on your preference. It even comes with a touch-controlled fan – ideal for those times you want to apply make-up in cooler conditions.

Zoeva Make-Up Tote Bag, £44

Best For: Extra compartments.

This tote bag is a bit of a no-brainer. One of the more affordable options on this list, it’s full of compartments, clear pockets, zipped sections and loops to store every item in your make-up collection. Housing your products safely and securely, it’s a great buy if you like all the clutter out of sight.

Anya Hindmarch Vanity Kit, £325

Best For: Sustainability with a luxury feel.

There’s no doubt this one’s an investment but, given how much it fits, it’s worth it. Plus, the sustainable fabric will really go the distance, so you won’t have to replace it. With a separate section for brushes, tools and a zip for little bits and bobs, the simplistic design makes it one of the chicest options out there.
