How to Store Your Makeup and Brushes

After sifting and sorting through my entire collection of makeup and brushes I knew I had to create a better system for organizing it all. It needed to be easily accessible while still being– for the most part– out of sight to keep my dresser from appearing cluttered.


My first trip was to Staples where I found this Martha Stewart inbox organizer. It’s super convenient for storing my makeup in a drawer, keeping it hidden, while also being able to neatly stack things on top.


Next I went to Michaels to look for some decorative containers to store my makeup brushes. I picked up a jar for my cotton balls, a small mason jar for my eye brushes, a big ceramic container for my face brushes and rocks to hold them all up and keep them separated.


Let me know what you think of my method of organizing my makeup and brushes and some ways you store your own!
