Here's what i keep in my makeup case when I go to a performance:
- my dance folder (I'll put up links to what I have in there later this week)
- a small hanging organizer (with all of my make up)
- a medium cosmetic bag (with brushes, applicators, and an eye shadow palette)
- my hair stuff in its organizer
- hair gel
This is how I do it:
Then I put in my hair organizer. One of the straps came off last weekend, but you get the idea.
After I strap that in, I add my dance folder, which is a pink binder/folder. It has brads on the inside so that you can hole-punch papers and put them in.
My cosmetic bag and hanging organizer are both Vera Bradley (a must for most dancers) in Very Berry Paisley.
They get layered in on top of my folder, to add cushion to the mirror(just in case).
And then I close it up.
At home, I leave out my dance folder and hair stuff, and keep those in my dance bag. I haven't decorated my makeup case yet(and it still looks like an old suitcase), but when I do I'll show you how I do it. I'm thinking rhinestones and spray paint. :) Let me know if you try this, how it works for you, what you think, how you decorated it.
Vera Bradley unfortunately doesn't carry the hanging organizer anymore, but you can find a very similar (slightly larger) one here.
My cosmetic bag can be found here.
