5 of the handiest cosmetic bags
It’s one thing to have a dedicated area in your cupboard for your beauty bits. It’s an entirely different ball game being organised enough to cart around said products when going out for the day, weekend or even month without losing everything.
Which is exactly why every girl should own at least one of these cosmetic bags:
THE PENCIL CASE
The pencil case is the kind of cosmetic bag every girl should own when hauling around a gazillion of her lip products. The length makes it perfect for most liners, glosses, lipsticks, and lipstains and it’s small enough to fit into your handbag. It’s even a great size to fit in some single eyeshadows, eyeliners and mascara.

THE EVERYDAY MAKE-UP BAG
If there was one make-up bag staple, this would be it. This kind of make-up case holds all you need for touch-ups through the day, including foundation, bronzer, and blush, and doesn’t take up much room. Just make sure not to shove too much in there.

THE BRUSH BAG
If you use a brush to apply each of your make-up products, then this bad boy should be your travelling staple. It’ll safely hold all of your brushes without smushing the bristles.

THE HANGING ORGANISER
So you’re going on a trip are you? Then this is the bag that you need – big enough to carry the cosmetics you need for an extended time away and often compartmentalised so that you can have a bit of organisation. Added bonus if it can hook onto the shower rack in a bathroom.

Sometimes a girl needs a variety of bags to have her covered no matter the situation. Enter a trio of cosmetic bags: where there’s a different size bag perfect for each situation. The smallest one goes right in your hand bag on a day-to-day basis, the medium one is your go-to for when you need to carry around a bit extra, and the largest will see you through any trip.
