Picking the Right Sized Cosmetic Bags
Cosmetic bags are very convenient and portable. For people on the go who want to carry just the basic beauty essentials, then a small cosmetic pouch would be a practical and useful choice. It should be small and inconspicuous but it should also be spacious enough to carry the basics such as lipstick, eye shadow, mascara, blush-on, and compact press powder, among others. There are many kinds of cosmetic bags in the market to choose from; it is better to know some important things to consider in getting the right sized cosmetic bag for you.
Choosing the right cosmetic bag is almost just as important as choosing the right kind of beauty product. Any woman who has experienced a beauty emergency and had to manage without their handy-dandy essentials knows the significance of having their basic toiletries with them at all times. Not just for active and busy women, a good cosmetic bag can also be practical for keeping organized at home, helping to store products in a tidy and uncluttered way.
Here is a review of different sizes of cosmetic bags and the various:
Small Cosmetic Bags
A small cosmetic bag is about the size of a pencil pouch and usually come with zipper closures. It is perfect for storing a few essentials like lipstick, powder and a little mascara. Its small size appeals to women who prefer a relatively small bag, allowing the cosmetic pouch to easily fit in a lady’s vanity or purse. Small cosmetic bags are also ideal for formal dining out, lessening the burden of having to carry a larger purse. In fact, even makeup mavens also prefer small cosmetic bags for those times when they carry a few essentials only with them.
Medium Size Cosmetic Bags
For ladies who regularly need a more polished look, you’ll definitely need additional space for your foundation, blush-on, powder, mascara and so many more, other than the basics. A medium-sized cosmetic bag is also flexible enough to allow for more beauty essentials like brushes and stuff.
A true beauty aficionado thinks bigger. Fashionistas may want a bigger cosmetic bag like a cosmetics vanity case. It can store more makeup like multiple shades of blush-on, eye shadow, lipsticks and all other goodies. Vanity cases usually have many small internal compartments that allow for a more organized makeup set. A vanity case also comes in very handy for travelling stylists.
Choosing a cosmetic bag that has special inside pockets is also a practical choice. It saves more space and keeps makeup items organized and easy to find. With a cosmetic bag that has inside pockets, ladies no longer need to empty the contents of a bag just to find a small item.
Also, women should consider the number of makeup they have to bring on a regular, daily basis. For those who have lesser makeup needs, a smaller cosmetic bag is the perfect choice. For women who need the additional space, a relatively bigger purse would be more appropriate. To be on the safe side however, women can purchase one that’s somewhat larger than what she’ll usually need so there will be more room to store and not put undue strain on the purse as well. It can also provide sufficient space for those impulse purchases that women can’t sometimes avoid.
Buying cosmetic bags is not just a matter of going to the mall and buying the first thing you find. There is no need to rush. Ladies can empty out their purses, search through the bathroom and spread out all items where it can all be seen. Examine closely the current makeup assortment. Once it’s clear how much makeup you have, decide only what’s needed, and know how much storage space you really need. It’s now easier to determine which cosmetic purse size to get for your collection.
