Beauty Gifts: Make-up Bags

Sometime around 28th December, when the jellied fruits and decent telly have run out, my thoughts turn to having a small reorganisation of stuff and a general handbag clearout. This important task is helped immeasurably by a smart new make-up bag, and here’s some of the loveliest around at the moment.

The Lipstick Pouch is really lovely and will hold a decent amount of powders, pencils and lipsticks on the go. Her SOS kits (from £20) also make brilliant presents – carefully thought through bags of essentials which can be refilled as necessary.
