Um, where’d I put my MAC 209?
Do you ever have those makeup moments that hit you like a ton of bricks? I was digging through my disorganized brush stash when I had one. My current approach to brush storage just does not work.
I’ve been using the same “system” for years. It’s a black pencil holder thingy that I got at Target (see above). Eye brushes, face brushes, cheek brushes — they’re all jammed in there like teenagers at a Jonas Brothers concert.
I can’t find squat!
Earlier today I surfed around for ideas. My favorite is this caddy/travel bag from Darac Beauty.
The Darac Solution Central ($32) is a flat, zippered bag that doubles as a brush stand and portable brush case.
See how it keeps the brushes upright and separated? Love that. And, as crazy as this probably sounds, I like that I’d be able to just grab everything and jet if my apartment caught on fire.
If they were cheaper I’d get three, LOL!
My second option: something like the brush holders at Sephora (see Vanessa’s blog for a how-to).
It’d be cheaper than the Darac case (and I like the DIY angle), but they’re not as streamlined. Sigh…
I’ll have to keep looking unless you can help me out. How do you store your makeup brushes?
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Before I faint from heat exhaustion (soo hot up in this space, yo… It must be 95 right now!), one more thing: Chanel’s new Jade Nail Collection is coming soon; I kinda lurve how it looks.
The two shades — Jade (a mint green) and Jade Pink (a light pink) — look just like my favorite colors in sixth grade. They would’ve ROCKED my world circa 1986, aka my “bad hair, ill-fitting training bras and RUN DMC mixed tape years.”
Each polish will sell for $25 at Chanel Boutiques, Makeup Studios and online starting next Friday. I’m counting down the days!
