10 Real Everyday Moms’ Makeup Bags


There must be some kind of human condition that makes us love to peek into each others lives.

Whether it’s watching daily vlogs or mukbangs on youtube, or opening someone’s medicine cabinet when you use their restroom, we love to see what others are doing or the products they are using.

Here’s a peek into 10 real everyday moms’ makeup bags. These are the bags of stay at home moms, working moms, first-time moms, moms of multiples, high maintenance, low maintenance, drugstore, high end, and everything in between!

“I’m 25 years old. I have 1 child, Trinity, who’s 4 1/2 months old. I just finished my kindergarten teaching position and will be a SAHM until I figure out if I want to work again, since I moved to live with my husband on base. He’s Army, which explains the bag. We threw mine out in the move. It was nasty.”

I mainly use Mac but I also love the cheap stuff like NYX. I am 29 years old. I have 3 children- 9, 6 and 4 1/2 months old. Before becoming a stay at home mom, I was a restaurant manager. Will be going back into the workforce by the fall, unfortunately.

Kati’s bag

I’m 30, married to my husband for 2 years, and we have a 5 month old daughter, Charlotte. I work in management at a software development firm, but am contemplating a career change as a teacher so that I can be home more with my daughter, especially when she reaches school age

I’m 31 and have one daughter. I work full time as a software tester. When I was a teenager, I asked a friend for makeup advice and she had me sit with someone at the mall. I couldn’t afford the products they used so we went to the drugstore after and I used those for years. I even had an ex-boyfriend give me tips, that’s how little I knew! At Christmas, my mother in law took me to the MAC makeup counter and has been buying me pieces since for my birthday and mothers day etc.

I didn’t realize what a Bobbi Brown addict I’ve become… I don’t always wear makeup, I’m 27 and a first time mom with a 4 1/2 month old. I own a fast casual (barbecue) restaurant. I work a couple days a week and stay home the rest of the time.”

Emelia’s bag

These are my everyday go-to’s… I fell in love with Tarte cosmetics because I have really bad acne scars and it’s the first makeup I’ve tried in all my trials that actually works. I’m 27, working mother to a 5 month old, Daisy, and married. I am a registered dental assistant, so hours are long. I wish I didn’t have to wear makeup, but I look way too tired and sick if I don’t, because I have dark circles and no eyebrows, hahaha. I used to buy expensive stuff but since getting a house and baby, my wants have become sub par… I’d rather spend money on my daughter than on me.”

These are my everyday. I don’t go for expensive makeup and I only do the basics cause it’s easy. I’m 35 with 2 boys, 6 and 4 1/2 months. I work at an elementary school in a self contained special Ed class. If I didn’t have to wear makeup I probably wouldn’t cause I really don’t know what I’m doing but I look like death without it.

Just a few of my faves found in my makeup bag. As a merchant for bareMinerals corporate for over 8 years, I’ve fallen in love with the products and the brand. The products are luminous and feel lightweight on your skin. Now as a SAHM with my first child, it is critical for me to apply makeup effortlessly. “Less is more” with bareMinerals products, just the way I love it!

This is what’s in rotation, but nowhere near my full collection. I love makeup and skincare! I’m 29 and a FTM of a 5 month old. I used to work in a law firm, but am now a SAHM. I like to keep it as easy as possible and definitely prefer a more natural look these days

I’m 27, have one 4 and a 1/2  month old son. I work full time as a high school math teacher, and was previously a swim and a softball coach. (Not sure if I will do it anymore because it’s too much time away from the baby!) I don’t use makeup often since I never really learned how!
