Do you ever have to rummage around in your makeup bag to find the item you want. I know I do. My makeup bag in quite big and if your looking for something small like an eyeliner things can get lost. I know there have been times when I’ve had to tip the whole bag out on to the floor just to find one missing brush or my tweezers, leaving a trail of pressed powder all over the floor when I’ve found my “lost” item. All that has changed thanks to The Flat Lay Company.

So before I tell you all about the makeup bag that will change your life!!! let me just fill you in a bit about the company. The Flat Lay Company is a small business based in Shoreditch in London. They have a small design team who care about making practical solutions for your everyday problems, whilst also taking great pride in what they produce. 

With two shapes of makeup bag to choose from (either the brands new shape box design or the more traditional drawstring open flat bag) not only will you be spoilt for choice as to the shape of your bag but the design that you would like as well.

So the bag I went for was the Leopard open flat drawstring bag. If you have been following me for a while you might already know my love for leopard print. I’m a big cat person and that does mean any sized cat so it had to be the leopard print one. There are some beautiful prints on the website so if you are not an animal print person don’t let the print of my bag put you off. 

So what’s the idea behind the bag? 

The bag is completely designed for the messiest ones amongst us! (Yep that’s me!!) 

The drawstring make-up bag opens up and allows you to see everything at once. This not only saves time but if you lay the bag out flat the makeup bag doubles up as a mat. This is ideal for travel or keeps your area tidy as you apply your makeup. I am pretty messy when it comes to applying products and my powder can sometimes go everywhere (Yes I am the one who got a loose powder stain on the sofa! Sorry Family!!!) So the idea of having everything on a mat laid out in front of me works so well. 

The bag has two large outer pockets for larger products as well as a zipped pocket which is ideal for keeping smaller things safe such as jewellery if you are travelling or smaller things that you just want to keep away from your makeup products. 

The case also has 4 elastic brush holders each side which can hold brushes or eye pencils it’s completely up to you. 

One of my favourite things about the Flay Lay bag (apart from the leopard print design) is that you can feel super organised and be messy at the same time. You can literally throw all of your stuff into the bag, pull the drawstring and be ready to go in seconds. The bag looks super cool from the outside and nobody has to know what it’s like inside, only you! 

If you would like to check out other designs from the brand, I will leave the link below.

These bags would make an excellent gift either to treat yourself or to give for a makeup loving loved one.  

You can also get an amazing 10% off your first order.  

Until next time.
