A couple of months ago, I showed you my storage method for my makeup brushes: a pretty apothecary jar that I found at HomeGoods.
Well, here’s another one for even more storage.
This one is a large 3-compartment, stacked apothecary jar. It’s perfect for storing most of my extensive nail polish collection, and my Milani Bella Eyes Gel Powder Eye Shadow and Intense Lip collections. Before I had this see-through storage idea, they were either in a cardboard box or in several different plastic containers on the floor of my crowded linen closet.
I splurged on this one. The large size is $49 at West Elm, but it comes in a smaller version for $34, good for storing sponges, cotton balls or swabs, lip balms etc. Maybe some day these will show up at HomeGoods, but I haven’t seen anything like them there yet.
I’m displaying the new jar on my antique English Art Deco vanity that I bought years ago at an antique store in Soho when I lived in New York.
I fell in love with the carved red & gray flowers painted on the vertical drawer handles. I also love the oval shape and how the seat fits right into the oval to maintain the design. And the adjustable, 3-way mirror is wonderful for the times I want to see the back of my head! I mostly apply my makeup in the bathroom since the light is better there in spite of the chandelier above my vanity. But I enjoy looking at it, and it provides good storage. 😀
Got any makeup storage tips to share with us?? Do you use a vanity?
