Getting organized is difficult for many. If you are one of those, here are some ideas for you to consider. If you’re already organized, there’s information for you to think about. All ideas have pros and cons and no one idea works best for everyone. Below I am sharing my insight and opinions. If you have any ideas or thoughts you’d like to share, we welcome your comments. Otherwise, ‘try it’. See how you like it.
These are attractive and creative. They do keep your cosmetics in place. One thing I do not care for about these is that by sitting with the brushes up in the air they allow dirt and dust and other airborne matter to collect on them. Then, in turn, you put these into your eye shadows or blushes and then brush that into your skin. (Are we seeing the issue here?)
Now I can hear some of you thinking “Well we can’t put
them in, bristles down, because that would just ruin the
brushes, so what are we supposed to do about that?”
I have an answer for you. My solution is to store cosmetic
brushes in covered containers, preferably not air tight ones
though. There’s a variety of options. Here are three
of my favorites.
I wish this photo were clearer. The side areas are great for storing smaller cosmetics
which allows you to keep the bulk of your cosmetics together.
The best feature is that the brushes are laid down and nestled into a groove
to hold them suspended so they aren’t rubbing, which minimizes fraying as well.
The second best feature is that this container can be closed,
keeping out excess dust, dirt and other airborne particles.
For this Fashion Eye,
this is the Mercedes of cosmetic storage.
My second runner up for storage is little gem here. It has drawers for your brushes and other cosmetic applicators. That is good since it also has what I refer to as “breather holes” in the front of each drawer. This allows a little bit of airflow while minimizing unwanted particles. However, the fact that it has drawers means you have to lay your brushes down. This allows mixing of colors and powders on your brushes which slightly alters the final look after application. Also, the bristles can rub together and this results in quicker fraying of the bristles.
Another item along the line of drawers is here. This provides maximum breathing room but again, it has the same downfalls as the above storage container. If this is your choice I recommend a light, attractive “draping” that goes over the top and comes down over the sides to eliminate the amount of airborne particles.
Here are some ideas for your “bath and beauty” supplies as well as your lip liners,
eye liners, mascaras, eye pencils and other “stick” items.
For those times you have to travel, here are some attractive choices that will
also keep your items clean and dry.
We hope this helps you think or rethink your options and allows you some solutions.
