If you follow me on Instagram (love it), you probably saw the picture above of my new makeup storage solution I tested out a few weeks ago. I’ve been antsy to change how my makeup is stored and, on a whim, decided to change things up without spending any money.
I grabbed a beautiful, white serving platter by Le Creuset from my kitchen and added just the “essentials”- ha. I was easily able to fit everything I needed in an organized manner on the tray or hanging off the side handles (like my eyelash curler and tweezers). I love when people have makeup baskets (or whatever) that they use to change out their products every week/month. That concept was somewhat the inspiration for this change – a more focused use of specific products.
Although this makeup storage works and is awfully pretty, I really didn’t like it. It was nice to have fewer options which, in theory, should make my mornings move much more quickly. Unfortunately, I was so focused on keeping everything straight and in order that it slowed me down. Plus, my Muji containers are organized so well and in the same order that I work on my face that it made me miss my plastic drawers.
Soo… even though this makeup storage solution lasted me less than a week, I still think it’s a great option to share. It was clean, easy, sleek, and best of all, cheap! No need to go out and buy something completely new; just repurpose what you already have. In the wise words of Tim Gunn…
