Does Your Make Up Bag Work?

by: Sher Matsen

Having our makeup at our fingertips is a number one priority for most every woman, even if itís just a tube of lipstick. We need to know that we can freshen our face anytime anywhere. So what makes up the ultimate makeup bag?

Today we can buy fashionable and trendy makeup bags ranging in size from compact to purse size.

Thatís really great, that our makeup bag can be part of our fashion statement, but itís what we put in it that really counts.

And why is it no matter what size the bag you have is, it seems to be too small or the makeup you most need at the moment doesnít appear to have made it into the bag. Itís time solve that dilemma but putting together the perfect makeup bag!

The bag itself is really a matter of your personal taste. Find one that fits your personality and will fit into your purse. Thereís no sense buying a huge makeup bag when you pack a tiny purse. Prices can range from a couple of dollars to a hundred dollars. Yes I said $100.00 Ė those designer names donít come cheap.

As we build the perfect makeup kit, weíll assume you are packing a small to medium makeup bag. For those that have a tinier bag youíll have to choose which items to remove. For those packing a large bag, fill you boots or should I say make up bag with any extras youíd like to add.

The very first thing you need to put in your bag is a small compact mirror, double sided preferably. You can purchase a nice size travel mirror complete with protective cover for around $5.00.

Next make sure to include essential brushes. Brushes such as blush and eyeshadow are most important. Or you can purchase a compact set of miniature brushed for around $10.00. That will ensure youíll have every brush you need.

Include your foundation or powder. If the original container is too large, then purchase a compact bottle or transfer some to an after market container that seals well.

Donít forget to include your favorite lipstick [only one please] Remember your building a compact version of your real makeup case. You can add a lip gloss if you like.

Same goes for eyeshadow. Choose a palette of colors you can wear or use anytime. There is no good way to pack a variety of colors, so itís best to choose your most reliable colors.

Or, you can purchase one of the pocket eyeshadows that has 8 or 12 variations. However, I find usually thereís only a few colors youíll actually use in these. Donítí forget to add mascara and eyeliner.

Blush can be a bit tricky because the containers are usually quite bulky. Again look for a small version of your blush or find a comparable one that comes in a travel size.

To keep you fresh, you can also add some prepackaged facial cleansing cloths, a travel toothbrush and toothpaste, and a travel size deodorant.

Thatís it, youíve just built the ultimate travel makeup bag. All the basics, to get you through the day. No wasnít that easy?
