The Open Flat Makeup Bag from The Flat Lay Co (Review)

Having the perfect makeup bag may not sound like a priority, but believe me – it should be!  It’s amazing what a difference having a great (or not so great) makeup bag makes when you’re getting ready.

I used to have to tip everything out on to my vanity to find what I was looking for, then everything would roll off onto my floor.  If I was in a rush to get out the door, I’d have to leave all my makeup strewn all over the place as I didn’t have time to pick everything up individually and put it all back into my makeup bag.  Not anymore!

This Open Flat Makeup Bag from The Flat Lay Co has made my life 10 times easier – it really is the best makeup bag!

The Open Flat Makeup Bag

As the name suggests, this makeup bag opens flat so you can get ready quickly and easily.  No more rummaging around trying to find the product you’re looking for means less stress getting ready in the morning.

This drawstring makeup bag is also perfect for doing your make up on the go, as the lip around the edge creates a barrier which stops products from rolling away.  As this makeup bag is made of a lovely thick fabric, your breakable products are protected – making it the perfect travel makeup bag.  

The Open Flat Makeup Bag is also machine washable, so you can keep your makeup bag in pristine condition.

how it works

The bag opens and closes using a sturdy drawstring, which allows the bag to open fully out into a circular mat.  

Just pull the drawstring, open out the bag – et voilà!  All your products are easily accessible and can be found in seconds.
