    Clearing of Makeup Bag

    First of all you need to clear the makeup bag. For this, take a towel or a piece of any other cleaned cloth/fabric and spread it on the table. Tip all the makeup products on the cloth so that the bag is cleared of them, entirely. Be careful and do not jerk the bag too strongly, as you can cause damage to some products or they can even break if they are in glass packing. It is better if you take out the entire stuff one by one with your hands.
