One weird thing I’m slightly obsessed with is seeing how other women organize their makeup. Our apartment bathroom is too small to really store anything other than the essentials, so I gave up my bedside table to instead have a small desk. This desk is my makeshift “vanity” where I do my hair and makeup each morning.
But plenty of my friends, and even my Mom, store their makeup essentials in one place — a cute makeup bag. I’ll admit I’m a bit of a makeup/skincare hoarder, so I’d need three or four bags to fit all of my products, but you get my point. The makeup bags I’ve accumulated over the years (a personal favorite is this one I got for Christmas a few years back) each have their own distinct purpose. For example, one houses all of my samples I get from magazines or Sephora orders, while another holds all my hair clips, bobby pins, and spare hair ties.
So whether you’re a one makeup bag kind of girl or have multiple bags floating around your apartment (like me), here are a few cute and affordable options.
