Makeup bags are one of the last things you want to think about cleaning, but every once and awhile, they too need a deep clean. No matter how hard I try to keep mine spotless, I always end up with bronzer powder coating everything, and mascara and lipgloss smudges all over the lining. Fortunately, there are some cute makeup bags that you can actually clean, and they don't require you to clear your Saturday schedule to do it.
I must admit, I love a makeup bag with a lot of compartments and pockets. Maybe it's because I grew up with a Caboodle and still remember the joy of opening it up to see all my favorite "beauty products" arranged just so. However, these days, makeup bags with brush sleeves and side pockets are generally a nightmare to clean. (Perhaps it's time to revisit the Caboodle since they are gloriously having a comeback.)
If you're looking for a makeup bag that can keep up with your lifestyle, (i.e likely to see the inside of a gym locker room and an airplane bathroom), here are 10 durable makeup bags that you can clean in a matter of seconds. Once you get started, you might just want to clean everything inside your bag too!
