Imagine losing your makeup bag...not the tiny touch-up kit you stow away at the bottom of your everyday carry-all—we're talking about the mother load that lives on your bathroom counter or vanity.

Yep, let the anxiety sink in.

On top of losing all the time it took to curate your selection of tried-and-true beauty picks, you also lost a good chunk of money. How much exactly? In a completely unscientific research survey, we voyaged inside seven women's makeup bags to find out the results. The average cost of a makeup bag (not including the bag itself) of a working professional is about $413.58. Although you may think you only need one mascara, one foundation or one of each staple item, the reason why the cost of beauty racks up is because there are multiples of items, like lipsticks and eye shadows. As the season changes, so does your makeup, apparently.
