Storing My Makeup

IMG_1002

Being a blogger, I have acquired a lot of beauty products over the years. Finding a place to store all of that makeup, nail polish, moisturizer, etc. was definitely a challenge. Initially, I stored everything in multiple makeup bags but it was not very convenient. Having to go through a bunch of bags to find a particular eyeshadow wasted more time than I care to admit. I looked for ways to streamline my makeup storage and after some searching online, I found this great set at the Container Store. I bought five pieces in the Luxe Acrylic Modular System and these pieces worked best for my needs, however, you can mix and match them how you see fit. I’ll be honest, they are a bit pricey because each piece cost between $11.99-$29.99. I have the following items from the collection: One Large Acrylic Makeup Organizer – $29.99; Two Wide Medium Luxe Acrylic Modular Drawer Clear – $29.99;  Two Half Tall Luxe Acrylic Modular Drawer Clear – $19.99 each. In total, this storage set cost me $110 plus tax. Pricey I know, but well worth it.

For my makeup brushes, I went to Michael’s and bought decorative fillers river rocks for $6.99 and this Glass Cylinder Vase for $3.99. It is a perfect for storing my brushes and keeping them all together.

For all the other makeup this I do not use regularly, I store in makeup bags!

In writing this post, I also found cheaper sets online like this one from Amazon for $28! It is a little bit smaller than mine but so is the price.
