Holographic Pebbled Makeup Bag

Holo Pebbled Makeup Bag – $9.90 @ Forever 21
A few years ago I took all the little makeup bags I had and started using them to keep things organized – namely to find my phone quicker. Get a purse-friendly bag to keep anything that could potentially spill or explode (I’m looking at you lipstick and hand sanitizer) like this trendy holographic style.
