Perfect Toiletry Bag for The Girl On-The-Go

**This post is in partnership with ERA81, but all thoughts and opinions are my own. I received the toiletry bag complimentary from ERA81.


Where I put on makeup and where I keep my makeup are not one and the same. At least once a year, I also travel to Colombia for a couple of weeks. Figuring out the best place to carry my makeup has always been a struggle. I had a bag from Target but it was so inconvenient, and I ended up leaving it in Colombia the last time it was there. I was so excited when ERA81 reached out and said they were interested in working with me. Keep reading to find out how I am liking the bag!

If you’ve never heard of ERA81, they are a San Francisco based company. Their target audience are professionals living in a fast-paced world. They want to make products that look good, but that are also practical and functional. Made with vegetable tanned leather and waterproof lining, these bags are so stylish. If you want to learn more about the materials and care instructions, you can find them here. Their current lineup includes wallets, toiletry bags, laptop sleeves, laptop bag, passport covers, camera straps, planner stash bags, and travel wallets.

They sent me the small toiletry bag in black. The perfect travel bag for the girl on the go. This bag is available in two sizes, travel and home, and currently available in black and navy. The leather has a waterproof lining, it is big enough to store all your essentials. From makeup to skincare, it can also serve as a great gift for your boyfriend or father, as it can also serve as a shaving bag. With only one zipper, the bag opens up to show four open flex pockets, one detachable zippered pouch, and one full-length open flex pocket.

I love using the detachable pocket in the toiletry bag to store my makeup brushes. They fit perfectly! And that way I can keep them all contained. I usually store my makeup in the full-length pocket, and my skincare in the four upper pockets. The bag also comes with a padded hand handle which makes it so easy to carry!

Overall, I love how sturdy the toiletry bag feels. I am sometimes afraid that my products will be unprotected when I travel with them, but I don’t feel that way about this bag. I also love that the products don’t get shaken up and there are multiple compartments to keep everything organized. The lovely people at ERA81 were also kind enough to monogram my bag with “MARIIA” (which is part of my Instagram handle). That was such a special touch and it makes me love my bag even more. You can add this to any of their products!

If you’re looking for a travel bag for all your cosmetics, I highly recommend you check these out! They’re not only so useful, but they’re also so beautiful. Interested in getting one? Use the code “MCERAGIFT81” for a free gift with purchase. Make sure to add it in the Notes in the checkout section!

How do you like to store your makeup when you travel? Do you have a favorite toiletry bag?

  • Thank @pixibeauty for the most beautiful package ♥️ The #pixibeauty #mattelastliquidlip is one of my favorite #mattelipstick formulas so you have no idea how excited I was when Pixi announced they were releasing new shades 🎉 And I was even MORE excited when this showed up at my door. I already owned the original shades so I gifted the extra ones to my friend (and #skincare queen 👑) @mod.young.
This formula is so lightweight, and not drying, and really, the only #matteliquidlipstick I use anymore. My favorite shade from this new release HAS to be #BerryBoost. The perfect shade for #fall🍁
No se imaginan la felicidad cuando llego este paquetito a mi puerta 😍 Estos labiales líquidos de @pixibeauty son mis favoritos. Vivo enamorada de los seis tonos que lanzaron primero, y ahora han lanzado cinco nuevos tonos más vibrantes y coloridos.
  • Please ignore the disgusting stage of my #glossier #cloudpaints 🙈 But these are my go-to cream blushes (pretty much all the ones I own). I find that cream blushes can give the most natural, flushed look and I love that. The #cloudpaint is the one I have been using the longest but I think the @flowerbeauty #blushbomb color drops are VERY similar (and MORE affordable). My newest addition is the #lilahbeauty divine duo - again, gorgeous shade and amazing formula.
Do you like a cream blush? Or do you prefer a powder blush?
Hablemos de rubores en crema! Me parece que en esta presentación el rubor se puede ver tan natural, así como pretendiendo que hicimos ejercicio pero llevamos tres horas en el sofá. Así. Estos son mis favoritos (todos los que tengo). Si buscan una opción económica les recomiendo el de Flower Beauty. Muy similar al de glossier.

  • Showing you the various stages of this look from the final outcome to my very, very naked face from a couple of weeks ago. This week has been a test to my #confidence. I got a stye(eyelid pimple) on my left eye and I looked like I had been punched (according to me). This meant I couldn’t wear ANY eye makeup. While I preach that #beauty is not dependent on #makeup, I still felt very insecure not being able to put on mascara or eyeliner. We get used to seeing ourselves in a certain way, and when we don’t look like what we’re used to, it’s not necessarily a bad thing - but just different. In my mind, if I can see a “flaw,” everyone else can see it too. When the reality is they’re probably not even paying attention. •
Do you also get up close and personal with your mirror and wonder if others can see that tiny little mark on your cheek?
Mostrándoles este look de hace un par de semanas desde el acabado hasta mi carita bien desnuda. Esta semana me ha salido un orzuelo en el párpado izquierdo lo que significó que no me podía poner #maquillaje en los ojos. Estando acostumbrada a verme CON maquillaje, fue muy extraño verme sin. Cuando estoy en la casa sin planes de ir a ningún lado, nunca me maquillo. Pero cuando voy a la universidad si. Y fue difícil. Porque pensaba que todo el mundo se iba a dar cuenta cuando la realidad es que probablemente ni siquiera estén prestando atención.
  • Nothing like #TextureTuesday and dipping into a brand new pot of @farmacybeauty #GreenClean. I had only tried one other balm before this one - and it hadn’t really been an enjoyable experience. I then got a mini somewhere and I am now the proud mother of this baby.
I love how well this removes my makeup. It is so effective and I find that I don’t have to use a lot of product. Usually I scoop some out and then start grabbing it with my fingers, but I always have some left over. If you’re in the market for a cleanser, I definitely recommend you give this one a chance. It won’t disappoint you!
Como les mostré en mis historias, he empezado un tarro nuevo de este bálsamo para desmaquillarse de #farmacybeauty. Es súper efectivo en remover maquillaje e impurezas de la piel. No me reseca la piel para nada. Súper recomendado!
  • Happy #MACMonday featuring my two newest addition to my humble @maccosmetics collection. I picked up two shades of their new #MACPowderKiss formula - Shocking Revelation (the more red/berry), and Burning Love (the deeper shade). I have yet to use them on my lips 👄 but I am very impressed by the formula! Have you tried these yet?
Feliz Lunes de #MACCosmetics ♥️Les presento las últimas adiciones a mi humilde colección. Dos labiales de su nueva fórmula #PowderKiss en Shocking Revelation y Burning Love. Ya los probaron?
  • Nothing like having enough time to do a full face of makeup. Honestly, my most relaxing time is picking out what I’m going to use, playing some YouTube, and doing my makeup. Even when I don’t have plans of going anywhere 🙈 there are about 13 products here. How many are there in your #fullfacemakeup routine!?
Nada como tener el tiempo para jugar con todo esto. Para mi no hay nada más relajante que escoger que voy a usar, poner YouTube, y maquillarme. Aún cuando no voy para ninguna parte 🙈 aquí hay más o menos 13 productos. Cuantos hay en su rutina?
