Am I allowed to carry items other than electronics in my personal item bag especially makeup and jewelry?

You should be able to pack those things into a backpack easily, and backpacks usually fit under the seat just fine.

For a bag that small, you should wear as many of your clothes on the plane as you can. Wear the bulky stuff, anyway.

There are definitely bags that size that are made for a laptop, with enough room for a few other things. Either backpack style, or mini-duffels.

If you check out some stores like Target or Marshalls, you might find something in the right size, that could double as a shoulder bag when you get to your destination.
