There was a time when shoulder messenger bags were only seen slung over the shoulders of couriers, but those days are over. Now they’re one of the hottest fashion accessories around…And, they’re great for tossing your makeup into when you have a busy day on-the-go.
It used to be that women just carried their cosmetics in their purses, but now active lifestyles often require a different method for carrying belongings. That’s because there just isn’t enough room left in most totes for makeup, gym clothes, office files, books, and anything else you might need during a busy day.
Designer Messenger Bags
If you’re in a city where you haven’t seen these new bags yet – you will! Designers have taken over and now ordinary shoulder messenger bags have gone upscale. Some women still prefer the old style bags, some go for the expensive ones, and some even design their own. This is one fashion style that’s going to be around for a long time to come.
Tossing in the makeup… When you’re carrying a shoulder messenger bag, make sure that you put your makeup in a small clear makeup bag. The reason is so that you can easily see the items in it. When you’re dashing around, you may need an item quickly. If you have an opaque bag you might end up having more difficulty locating small cosmetics.
You also want to make sure to have a pack of wipes on the hand for any makeup touch-ups that you might need. It’s one item that’s easily forgotten, but that can be a real life saver when you need to redo your makeup on the run.
Try Instant Makeup
When you need to fit something into a smaller space – no room for makeup – try instant makeup products. These come in single one-use packets. Cargo Cosmetics offers eyeshadows on paper and lip gloss contained in a tiny bubble. Even an inside pocket is big enough to hold your instant makeup products.
Next time you’re looking at tote bags, take a look at the shoulder messenger bags, especially the leather ones. They’re comfortable to sling over your shoulder and great for carrying your makeup along with you throughout the day!
