Capsule make up
If you are serious about streamlining the contents of your make up bag, then one good tip is to simply buy a smaller bag! This way you won't be able to overload it.
Chose your contents carefully. If you only have room for five products, make them the best you can afford. If all your make up bag contents are dependable products that suit you, then you're onto a winner.
Ruby Hammer says: "I think everyone should have a capsule makeup bag containing mascara, a concealer (as you could sometimes do without a base if your skin allows) and one multiple product that could provide colour for your cheeks, eyes and lips."
