5 cool makeup pouches to lust after
You can tell a lot from a woman's makeup pouch. Clean, waterproof and organised: She's probably a bit of a neat freak. Messy and colourful and full of makeup stains: She probably lives life to the fullest and isn't too bothered about capping all her eye pencils. If her pouch is refined and made from the luxurious, woven leather... well then she's probably someone who appreciates the finer things in life. Whatever your pouch of choice, like your makeup, it speaks volumes. Here are our coolest selections.
IF YOU NEED SOMETHING LIGHT AND ROOMY
Aerin Beauty Mediterranean Cotton Canvas Cosmetics Case (Large), US$132
The shell-lined interior prevents messy spills, while the large size means even hoarders can pack in (whatever's on) the bathroom sink on their next trip.
IF YOU APPRECIATE A POP CULTURE REFERENCE OR TWO
Skinny Dip x The Simpsons Mr Burns Small Makeup Bag, £12
Okay, confession time. We actually own this makeup bag. It surprisingly fits in a lot of makeup products and we adore the tongue-in-cheek print and pastel colour scheme.
IF YOU LOVE STREET FASHION
The Paper Bunny Black Grafitti Pouch, $45.90
Chic, simple and practical, this has a little pocket inside to store loose bobby pins and could easily double up as a mini clutch on club nights. Bonus: Alcohol spills wipe right off.
IF YOU'RE SUPER CHIC
Bottega Veneta Intrecciato Leather Cosmetics Case, US$552
Feeling the urge to splurge but don't want to splash out on a bag? This elegant and meticulously-crafted, dusty blue beauty should be next on your wish list. The canvas lining means it's great for storing brushes and products that don't spill too easily, but the lambskin means you'll need to treat it with some TLC.
IF YOU LIKE SOMETHING PRETTY YET HARDY
The Paper Bunny Pink Brushes Pouch, $45.90
Store everything from mints to red lipstick in this cute pouch. The plastic exterior is resistant to water and dirt, meaning you can throw it in your bag without worrying.
