(Muji PP Storage – £2.95)
For some reason, I cannot find this box on the Muji website to link for you, but I know they sell them inside the stores and concessions in Selfridges. It is a pp storage container as opposed to their clear acrylic and I have a similar one that I keep my bedtime products inside, next to my bed. For about 6 months, I used a science beaker for my brushes, that I bought online, to mimic those used by Mac. However, my brush collection grew and I was again faced with finding something useful. Then I stumbled across this and my beauty prayers were answered. The container has rounded edges and six compartments inside of the same size. This means that my brushes can be split by type – you may realise I am a little bit of an organisation freak. I have my go-to mascaras, eyeliners and eye crayons in one compartment for ease, eyeshadow brushes in another and eyebrow brushes, lip brushes and eyelash curlers in the next. On the next row I keep my least used brushes such as foundation brushes and then the other two sections are filled with powder, contour, blusher and buffing brushes, mainly from Real Techniques. It is so easy to find the brushes and then to sit them back inside again with no hassle and I could not recommend this more. Whilst were here, I might as well mention a few of my favourite brushes and must haves. The Real Techniques Core collection is a must have, as is the Powder brush for bronzer, setting brush for powder, stippling and blush brush for cream or powder blushers and Mac 217 blending brush is my most used brush by far. I hope this gave you some ideas for your vanity cabinet and brush storage.
