DIY Clear Makeup Bag- click through for the full tutorial!We’re serious makeup addicts—the secret is out! There’s something about playing around with makeup that we find relaxing and it gets our creative juices flowing. Because of our obsession, we often look for new makeup storage ideas that are both cute and functional. While we own a few makeup bags, we realized that we didn’t have any clear bags. Clear bags come in handy when you’re traveling or even when you’re searching for a certain product. A transparent bag can be a lifesaver when you’re trying to find that ONE nude lipstick.

Now we couldn’t just let our clear makeup bag go untouched, could we? Of course we had to jazz it up! One of our favorite phrases is, “All I need is coffee & mascara,” because for us it’s entirely true! But feel free to use your favorite phrase or quote.

We found that is was easier to line each letter up if we looked at the words from the side. Also, don’t be worried that these stickers will fall off because they actually adhere really nicely to plastic!
