Tip 6: Tote carefully When it comes to keeping makeup organized in a makeup bag (if you don't have drawers or simply like to tote your stash with you), try to keep your makeup separated as best you can "into three major categories: powders, creams (or anything liquid) and tools (brushes, lash curler, etc.)," says Wade. This means that you don't necessarily want to have one big bag that all of your products are tossed in -- especially since makeup bags are a breeding ground for bacteria. Look for bags with various sections and zipper compartments (to avoid spills). Try Sephora Core Vinyl Double Handle Makeup Bag, $38.
