Try This: DIY Clear Makeup Bag 

DIY Clear Makeup Bag- click through for the full tutorial!We’re serious makeup addicts—the secret is out! There’s something about playing around with makeup that we find relaxing and it gets our creative juices flowing. Because of our obsession, we often look for new makeup storage ideas that are both cute and functional. While we own a few makeup bags, we realized that we didn’t have any clear bags. Clear bags come in handy when you’re traveling or even when you’re searching for a certain product. A transparent bag can be a lifesaver when you’re trying to find that ONE nude lipstick.

Now we couldn’t just let our clear makeup bag go untouched, could we? Of course we had to jazz it up! One of our favorite phrases is, “All I need is coffee & mascara,” because for us it’s entirely true! But feel free to use your favorite phrase or quote.

We found that is was easier to line each letter up if we looked at the words from the side. Also, don’t be worried that these stickers will fall off because they actually adhere really nicely to plastic!

  • So cute and easy, and it works even for those of us of (ahem) more mature years! I substituted “lipstick” for “mascara,” because that’s how I roll, and I used a curly red ampersand from another sheet of letters instead of the plus sign. I love how it turned out!

  • Cute, simple, and functional – love those qualities in a DIY. I also really love your nail polish shade! 🙂

  • This is SUCH a good idea! I NEVER would have thought to do something like this…so cute!

  • Maybe taping a piece of lined paper on the inside would make it easier to keep the phrase level?

    • Great thought, Katey! We’ll definitely try that next time.

  • Oh this is so cute! I can imagine using it for everything, especially all my utensil and post it notes. “Post-its and Tea and All I Need”..brutally honest. Can’t beat functional and fashionable.

    • Thanks, Juliette! You could totally customize it to say anything! So fun!

  • I actually really like the clear makeup bag you linked. Might use it just like that!
