Whether you're storing your makeup at home or taking it to go, a plastic zippered sandwich bag just isn't going to cut it. Instead, invest in something a little more stylish and a lot more sturdy.
Many makeup bags feature an interior that wipes clean, so they're safe for packing even your liquid foundation. Bags with a cloth exterior are a little more tricky when it comes to cleaning, but many can easily be sent through the washer on a gentle cycle or spot cleaned by hand.

A larger bag carrys everything your face could want and more, while a small tote is perfect for on-the-go essentials like lipstick, a powder compact for touching up and a small mirror.
A basic pencil case is ideal for holding - you guessed it - eye and lip pencils. It also makes for perfect storage of sharpeners, eyelash curlers and shorter makeup brushes.
