Time Saver | How to Find the Perfect Makeup Bag

The perfect makeup case is big enough but not too big, chic but not over-the-top glitzy, has some pockets for those must have’s, and comfortable on its own to carry to the bathroom, if really necessary. Basically, it’s the underwater basket weaving beaver that speaks French. Although I’ve never met said beaver, see Time Saver #27 below for some great cosmetic case options.

THE INEXPENSIVE BASIC

Amazon has a cute $10 cosmetic bag that’s compact, yet big enough to house your daily must have’s with four inner pockets. Durable and light weight in six colors.

 


THE HERRINGBONE

The Hudson + Bleecker makeup case in black herringbone for $38 is organized and sophisticated. Sports a 4 piece brush holder, a detachable pouch and pockets for your favorite lipstick.

 


THE WASHABLE MESH

Dagne Dover has a great $35 synthetic mesh cosmetic case option. Comes with inner elastic loops, side pockets and a removable zippered compartment. Easy to handwash and breathable. You can also get it for $55 in a bigger size. Get it in multiple colors.

THE LIGHTWEIGHT WITH DUAL COMPARTMENTS

For something elegant and lightweight, the Tumi Voyager Nylon Cosmetics pouch for $95 is perfect.

Boasts separated compartments to make organization a breeze, along with dual zip closures.

 

 


THE MAKEUP + JEWELRY IN ONE
