Our purses are like black holes for beauty products: once we toss something in there, there’s a high chance that it will never see the light of day again. That’s why we set out to create a custom Birchbox makeup bag that would let us keep our daily essentials in one place, no digging around required. The result? A stylish canvas pouch that’s big enough to fit our everyday makeup musts and small enough to throw inside our handbags. We polled the lovely ladies on the Operations Team to see what they’re going to keep inside their brand new Birchbox makeup bags. Click through for their picks!
