Can you help me find a new makeup bag? I had a Kate Spade bag but I don’t need anything that luxurious again. Something less expensive would be better.
There are two theories on makeup bags: 1) buy one large bag to hold everything, or 2) buy a few smaller bags and break up your storage by type of makeup (lip, eye, face, etc.).
I like one big bag. My routine is pretty streamlined, so I like to have all my products in one place. This lace-print bag is nice; it’s also spacious. You also get a smaller square bag along with it.
This Steph&Co bag in a white leopard print is another great choice. I like that it’s plastic-coated to protect against spills. This Jane Iredale bag has some internal pockets to keep your organized. Mark and Graham make a set of canvas bags that you can personalize.
Tartan & Twine Blythe Bag ($24)
Don’t need all that room? Tartan & Twine makes a lovely selection of bags (the gold also comes in a train case). I also like this leopard-print bag.
These Dogeared bags have cute little sayings printed on them. I also like this Mango pocket-hem cosmetic bag with a separate zipped section underneath (perfect for lipstick). I also like this ikat-print Steph&Co bag in a stain-preventing fabric.
This leather cosmetic bag set would be a nice Christmas present for the makeup-lover in your life. I also recommend these leather Cuyana bags, which you can personalize.
No need for leather? PBTeen has some cute bags; I like this grey set. For something affordable, this striped canvas set is just $14.
After my $5 drugstore makeup bag fell apart, I decided to get something sturdier but not investment-level expensive. Sephora’s “Vacationer” bag did the trick, especially since the top stores all my brushes and I don’t need a separate pouch for those. https://www.polyvore.com/cgi/img-thing?.out=jpg&size=l&tid=87357582
Sorry, bad link (tried to include an image of the open bag). Here’s the store link: https://www.sephora.com/the-vacationer-P379811?skuId=1514405
I always buy make up bags from Ross or Marshalls. Ok quality and cheap enough that I don’t feel bad throwing them away after they get too dirty.
