We’ve seen many kinds of storage options for makeup, such as the currently popular acrylic storage (check this one from The Beauty Bee), or a full vanity table setup (like this again from The Beauty Bee, or this from Erikajjang). Not all of us have the room space for a vanity table, or even the table space for acrylic boxes. As one of such people, I have to resort to other creative options to store my makeup. My solution: a hanging setup.
Basically I purchased one of those hanging storage for accessories; I think this particular one is from Landmark Trinoma, and costs about Php180. I originally purchased this for its intended purpose, for accessories, until I appropriated it for my growing collection of makeup. I like this one particularly because it has many sturdy transparent pockets. I used the entire right side to house my squarish eyeshadow palettes, the left and middle columns for the lipsticks and other miscellaneous items.
My pencil-type makeup items are housed in this smaller hanging storage. I think this one is really meant for makeup, but as a traveling kit. I made this a permanent holder for the long, slim makeup items such as eye pencils and mascara tubes. This hanging storage costs slightly more than the first one, I think around Php250.
I used these hooks to hang up the two. Here is how it actually looks like, at the side of my closet.
This is of course not everything I have. My bases are untidily stored in a tray inside this cabinet, as well as my larger eyeshadow palettes, and my blushes. I will eventually get a vanity table as it’s really hard to apply makeup standing up but for now, this will do.
What do you use for makeup storage?
