As some of you may know ( and a lot of you probably don’t, lol ), I am a commuter. So, I get up super early each day and drive an hour to my job, which means I really don’t have any time in the mornings to get ready.
However, if I plan my time right, I usually get to work in plenty of time to get myself put together, so I take all of my makeup and hair products with me everyday in a large bag, which I’m fully aware probably looks like I live in my car every time I walk into work.
Since I carry everything with me, having good organization is key to having a productive morning. And one of the things that takes a good bit longer than anything else is applying makeup if its not all laid out where I can see it. For the longest time, I would carry everything in a zippered bag, and while this was ok at first, after a while, it was really frustrating having to dig around in the bag, trying to find things.
So, I went shopping and found this awesome makeup bag by Vera Bradley. I am not kidding when I say that it was literally love at first sight and quickly became my favorite makeup bag I had ever bought. The storage and organizational pockets were so helpful. Now, I know exactly where everything is all the time and can grab something without having to dig around.
The bag has four inside mesh pockets, two on either side, which are perfect for smaller items and brushes, and the middle is great for all the larger things. And on the other side, there is a drop down flap that holds all your brushes, keeping them in perfect shape and not messing up the bristles.
There’s a zippered pocket as well on the flap side for extra storage and the whole bag is super lightweight. It really is my favorite makeup bag.
So what about you? Do you have. A favorite makeup bag you use everyday?
