I will admit it; I’m obsessed with makeup and makeup brushes. From the beginning, I had issues with storing my makeup and tools. So I was forced to sit in front of my laptop and come up with the answer to my problem. It took me about three days to find answers to my problem. But then it occurred to me that I could not be the only person suffering from this issue. With that, I drafted this blog to share my findings.
A) DOOR SHOE ORGANIZER – If you have a small bedroom, a shoe organizer which hangs over the door is going to help. Just hang the organizer over the door and place the cosmetics you use the most into the pockets.
B) PAPER TOWEL TUBE – Not only does an empty paper towel tube store makeup, you are also recycling paper products from your kitchen. Once you are done with your paper towels, simply take the empty tube, cut it in half, wrap it with patterned sticky paper and glue the tubes to a paper plate. You now have storage for cosmetics and brushes on a consistent basis.
C) MASON JAR CONTAINERS – Simply gather all the mason jars within your possession. Then go to your local hardware store and pick out your favorite color spray paint. Once home, gather your mason jars and place them on a flat surface, top down. Then get to work. Spray your jars with your spray paint and allow to dry. And here is the fun suggestion. Take painters tape and tape off sections of the mason jars. Next spray the taped jars with a second color and allow to dry. Once the spray paint has dried, take off the tape to reveal a colorful and useful makeup brush container.
D) MAGNETIC MAKEUP BOARDS – First find an old frame (i.e. frame from an old, unwanted painting). Then go to your local hardware store for a sheet of metal, and cut it to fit your frame. Once the metal has been cut, take your favorite color of spray paint and paint the frame. Next, get some spray adhesive to stick some fabric to the metal. Then attach the metal to the frame. After the metal and the frame are attached, choose the cosmetics you want to place on the magnetic board. Find some magnets and hot glue the magnets to the back of your cosmetics. Hang the frame to the wall and place the magnetic cosmetics to the metal board. You now have a new way to store your cosmetics.
E) SPICE RACK STORAGE – Looking for a new way to store all your nail polishes? How about a spice rack. Take your spice rack or second hand spice rack, and paint it your favorite color. Once dry, mount the rack on the wall, then place your nail polish on the rack; organizing the polishes as you see fit.
These are just five ways to organize your make-up and brushes. The ideas are cheap, simple and DIY. If you have ideas on how to store your makeup and brushes, please share.
