Ask Belle: Makeup and Cosmetic Bags
Oct 20, 2015
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.
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.
