Brush Storage Ideas

Taking a hint from Sephora’s bead-filled brush holders, I present the way I modified it to better fit my personal style/taste. I saw these glassy, “black pearl”-like marbles at Michael’s (the craftstore), and they just were a perfect suit for me. I do wish they were a wee bit smaller, because it would make it easier to keep all of the brushes standing upright at all times, but it’s good enough for me. Each jar required three bags of marbles, each bag costing around $3.

The circular glass jars were a nice find, too, because it’s taken me a year to find them (really!)–everything else wouldn’t be as clean/simple, or the jar would be too tall/short… just something would not be perfect. I believe the glass jars were about $3, and they fit my brushes comfortably. I’d say if you used vase filler beads or smaller beads, you could definitely fit more than the amount I have.

Overall, each brush holder’s final cost was about $22 including tax. You can see more pictures! Continue reading →

Pia wanted to share this creative storage solution she found!

I saw this wooden tea box when I was browsing around at the mall last week. I totally fell in love with the craftmanship AND the price (only US 16)…so much better than the plastic box. I definitely could pass this on to my daughter (perhaps including everything inside given I hardly ever used up any of my makeup, thanks to MAC for forever launching new stuff and to you for introducing arrays of beauty products and brands). My baby princess already said that she would willingly adopt the box after I got bored with it.

See what’s inside! Continue reading →

3-Tier Acrylic Cabinet Organizer ($12.99) Turn this into your very own counter-top pigment rack.  It’s not my favorite way to store pigments, if only because my counter top space is very, very little.  But if I was in my old apartment, which had a gorgeous vanity, I’d definitely look into these!

Okay, plastic not your thing?  How about mesh… Continue reading →
