Tips for Storing Makeup in Your Bag!
Carrying a heavy bag around with you for the entire day can be the most annoying thing ever. And most of the time, a lot of that clutter is beauty-related! But what can you do… you really need all that stuff! Chances are, you’ve already cut out as much as possible from the extra weight.
Here are 4 simple ways for you to cut down on all the clutter when storing makeup in your bag!
1. Use contact cases
Contact cases are so versatile! They’re the BEST containers for storing tiny amounts of makeup products – liquid formulas, creams, and powders. From eyelash glue to concealer, you don’t even have to worry about your products drying out with these airtight containers.
Pro-tip: This trick comes in handy when you’re staying over at a friend’s place and you want to bring liquid foundation with you. Instead of carrying the bottle with you, just pour a bit of the product into the case and you’re good to go!
2. DIY blotting papers
Want to keep a stash of cheap blotting papers with you throughout the day? Use envelopes, brown paper bags, or even paper towels to create your own DIY blotting papers. Just cut them up into tiny rectangles (or any shape you’d like) and use a paperclip to keep them together!
3. Rollerball or sample size fragrance
Carrying perfume around with you for a mid-day touch up is never a bad idea. When you order makeup online, there’s often the option of choosing a couple of samples to go with your order at checkout. When this happens, go with sample-sized fragrances so you can pop them into your purse. Another good idea is to invest in a rollerball version of your favorite fragrance!
4. Use a keyring for hair ties
You really never know when you’re going to need a hair tie. Instead of wearing one on your wrist or trying to find an elastic band (hello baby hairs from all the breakage), use a keyring to carry a bunch of hair elastics with you in your bag!
