How To Create a Simple Makeup Bag Gift
Create a simple makeup bag gift that’s unique and perfect for any woman!
Tis the season for giving some French beauty! If you are looking for an easy but super nice gift for the women in your life, I have a wonderful DIY gift idea! And my gift isn’t the only one I’m sharing today. I’m honored to join my friend, Krista from the Happy Housie and so many other talented bloggers for a Christmas DIY gift idea edition of Seasonal Simplicity. This simple makeup bag gift is not only easy to create, it also can be personalized for anyone on your shopping list this holiday season!
Plus, I have a surprise for you too! I will share more details on that a later. Right now, let’s talk about how to make these makeup bags.
HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE THIS DIY MAKEUP BAG GIFT IDEA
(affiliate links may be included for your convenience)
- makeup bag (similar)
- iron on transfer letters
- extra goodies like mirror, nail files, dry shampoo, moisturizer, lipstick, etc.
ADD YOUR LETTERS
First, I had to decide on my wording. French has always been one of my favorite languages. So I wanted to use French words that would be inspirational and remind every lady of their beauty. The French word Joli translates to pretty and Beau translates to good looking in English. Plus each of those lovely words would easily fit on the side of the bag. Perfect!
Once the letters were arranged, I ironed the letters on (one-at-a-time) following the enclosed instructions. And that was it. Like the French say….si facile (so easy)!
FILL YOUR BAG
After I finished applying the lettering, I filled the bag with a few travel size goodies. Nail files are always great to have around and pretty lipstick is a must. Dry shampoo, some moisturizer, and a compact mirror were also included. And a $20 gift card to Ulta is always a nice addition to any gift, so I placed one of those in the bag too.

I’m a mascara girl!

These are adorable! I might just have to make one for myself too! lol!
I’m a Philosophy girl.
This awesome I know what I’m making my sister for xmas
These will make such cute stocking stuffers. Thank you for being a part of the blog hop!
This is beyond cute! What a great idea. I might have to make one of these for myself 🙂 So glad we could do this hop together, friend!
My favorite would have to be eyeshadows you can create a look that is unique or dramatic.
I can’t live without my Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara.
Eyeliner is one thing and also lip ointment for the cold winter months.
Mascara of course
Lipstick! Love to try new ones.
I love my body butter.
I’m lost without my tinted moisturizer!
Eyeliner all the way! Thank you for hosting a lovely giveaway!
Mascara & dry shampoo.
What a cute idea! for me it is mascara, followed closely by nail file, with rock hard nails they come in handy~
I love my Vaseline lip balm. I apply it always before using my lipstick. I love Revlon lipsticks!
Those makeup bags are adorable!
I always need lipstick!
Mine is Dr. Lipp Original Nipple Balm for Lips! It plumps my lips and gives them a nice gloss. I use it daily even if I don’t put on any other make up 🙂
I must have mascara! Mine are so light you would think I don’t have any if I wasn’t wearing mascara.
These are too cute for words! I’m sure my sisters would love this idea too!
I can’t live without eyeliner.
Lipstick is my one true daily.
Love your idea of giving personalized make-up bags away as gifts. I think I will make some for my little girls who love all things personalized and make-up for when we travel back and forth from my parents house. Thanks for the idea!
I can’t do without mascara every day – curse these blond eyelashes!
I can’t live without lip balm.
hmmm nice gifts for the wife
I can’t go without bronzer and blush.
I can’t live without my brow pencil
lip balm is my go to everyday….could not live with out that!!!
I can’t live without my liquid eyeliner pen in jet black! Gotta have my winged eyeliner.
Can’t live without lip balm!
Nars lipstick duo is the product I can not live without.
I love my Josie Maran Protect & Perfect! It gives a great SPF, a primer, CC cream & moisturizer all in one! Not to mention PURE argan oil all her great products have. Love that it has just a tad of color to hide imperfections.
I cannot live without lip balm. I also like using foundation on occasion to cover up blemishes.
For just running out the door, I can’t beat a good tinted SPF for evening out my skin & ensuring I have sun protection! Can’t forget SPF lip balm either! For setting a full face of makeup, I love & swear by Tatcha Dewy Mist for dry prone skin.
