Your local art store may have just the thing you need to keep your growing makeup stash organized.
Most arts and crafts stores stock unvarnished wooden boxes in assorted shapes and sizes. They make perfect (and affordable) makeup storage containers. I spied these boxes, each ranging from a whopping $1.50 to a staggering $3, at my local Ben Franklin Craft Store this afternoon. They’re perfect for storing eye shadows, blushes, glosses or whatever your makeup-lurving heart desires.
I bought the smallest one for $1.50. What an incredible deal, and it holds 14 pans of MAC shadow!
I kinda like the unpainted color of the wood, but if you wanted something with a bit more spunk you could decorate your boxes with stickers, pins, fabric shapes, or you could varnish, paint or draw on them in pen.
I’m definitely paying regular visits to crafts stores more often. It really got the creative juices flowing.
How scary are these art store dolls? I think I may have nightmares about ’em tonight.
This one bears a striking resemblance to actor Rob Schneider.
Hope you’re having a good night!
