I’m a complete sucker for makeup storage and spying on how other girls like to display their products, and since setting up my very own makeup desk I thought I’d start sharing how I store mine!
I’m going to be filming a complete makeup storage video for my YouTube channel, but before that I thought I’d give you a quick sneak peek on how I store my brushes!
First up are the white Ikea Skurar Plant Pots (link) which are just the perfect size for storing large brushes! I think I have 4 of these at home and none of them are used to store an actual plant, ha! I use two of these to store my foundation, base, blush & powder brushes, of which I know I have too many but I love them too much to get rid of! I’ve sorted them into one containing my favourite most used, and the other contains base products I like but don’t reach for as much.
Next up is my Camera Lens Cup (link) which was a gift to me from my parents a couple of years ago. I had one cup of tea in it, decided tea tastes better in an actual mug rather than plastic and have been using it as a brush holder ever since! I use this to store all of my favourite eyeshadow fluffy blending brushes as I am always using these to blend and need them to be easily accessible.
I use an empty Space NK Candle Jar to store all of my other miscellaneous brushes; flat eyeshadow brushes, liner, brow, lip brushes etc! I love using old candle jars to store brushes as they are the perfect shape (height and width) so don’t throw them out girls!
Finally I picked up this Marble Mug (link) from H&M Home last month which I adore!! I have a full blog post coming up on what else I picked up from H&M Home but until then, I like to use this to store my favourite small face brushes which I use to blend concealer and lightly apply powder.
So there we have it! Stay tuned for full makeup storage pictures & video soon.
