To my mind, a girl can never have too many makeup bags. Big ones for longer holidays, medium sized for weekends away and small, for your everyday essentials. But of all of these, I’ve found the perfect everyday makeup bag can be that hardest to find. It’s got to be big enough for all your essentials, yet small enough to tuck into your handbag. And shape is important too – to save having to tip everything out to find what I’m after (not a good look on the train). Last, but certainly not least, it’s got to be cute. I’m going to be looking at it every day. And more than once at that.
So when a friend gave me this gorgeous Olivier Bonas bag, I was over the moon (I think she thought my reaction was a little OTT, but honestly, it’s perfect!). Apart from being really rather pretty, the size and shape is absolutely ideal. It’s got a deep base gusset which means you can cram loads in if you need to, but it’s also soft fabric so it’s more compact when not full. And the best part? The zipped opening opens wide, so you can see the entire contents and exactly what you’re looking for.
And as an added bonus, it’s got a cute little message inside. Sometimes it really is the small things that can make a big difference to your day.
I’ve searched on their website, but unfortunately it seems that this little gem is no longer available. However all that searching means I’ve now got my eye on their pretty duck egg blue number here… A girl can never have too many makeup bags, right?
