Beauty Storage – Neat and Tidy!

All neat and tidy!

All neat and tidy!

Hi my name’s Sarah and I’m a self-confessed neat freak. My mam is super tidy, she once tried to pick my runner up off the floor when my foot was in it –  true story, ha ha, sorry mam, love you! I always used to slag her about it when I was younger but it’s true, you do turn into your mother. In fact mam now claims that I am worse than her and she’s probably right.

My neat obsession extends to the organising of my beauty stash. I store my everyday beauty essentials in my Muji storage below. The Muji storage is just great. You can buy different bits that are stackable and they’re made of plain Perspex so you can see everything in them. I have a piece with two wide drawers and on top of this I stack the piece with one closed in drawer and one with the flip top lid. The one with the flip top lid is handy because I stand my face creams, lip balms etc. on this as you can see.

The make-up bits then lie flat in the drawers as you can see below. I have them divided into Face, Lips and Cheeks and Eyes.

I can’t remember exactly but I think the drawers might have cost me about €50 but is some of the best money I’ve spent.

You’ll laugh at my storage solution for my brushes. My other neat obsession is lint rollers. I wear a lot of dark colours so a lint roller is an essential to keep fluff at bay. This’ll make sense I promise… I find the plastic covers that sometimes come with lint rollers are perfect for storing my makeup brushes. As you can see below, nifty. I feel like writing into Woman’s Way with it as a tip of the week!

You can get the Muji storage from the Dublin Muji store on Chatham St (just off Grafton St) or you can order it online. You can get the mucho expensive glamorous lint roller covers/ brush holders in Penneys :)

    Good to see I’m not the only neat freak, especially when it comes to makeup storage!! :D I use two boxes, they’re supposed to be for artists to store their brushes and paint, they fasten and have a really handy carrying handle. They sort of open like a tool box so i’ve got everything organised into drawers for palettes and powders etc. I washed out a jam jar and put colored stones in it, then I used it for my makeup brushes but since I got a new set, they came in a handy leather pouch so I use that instead.
    Interesting read! :)

      Thanks Aoife! your storage solutions sound much more creative than mine, I love the idea of the jars with beads, I think I’ll do this. It’ll be prettier. Glad you enjoyed the post!
