Welcome to my monthly makeup bag!

While other bloggers have monthly makeup drawers, my apartment is way too small for that. Most mornings, I end up doing my makeup in the mirror of my bathroom sink. Because my husband wakes up later than I do, I have to do my makeup away from where my actual collection is stored on my dresser (unless I want to do my makeup in the dark!). Therefore: the makeup bag. It’s easy enough to keep in my bathroom and grab what I need. Every month, I’ll be changing up the products I use to keep things fresh and interesting. Usually, I throw in products I’m currently loving, products I want to try, or products I haven’t used in a while.

Interested? Take a look at January’s bag:
