A Little Bit of MUJI Storage

Aren't I a rebel, going for a MUJI container that aren't drawers? ;P

I'm VERY picky about my storage - it has to be the right height, the right width, right number of sections etc., etc.,. And so far, the only 2 that I've found to meet my needs is the WHSmith drawers, and these - the MUJI.. stand, thingy.

So what do I use this for? General, everyday products that I like to leave out, and tall products. The back part is separated into 4 taller slots, while the front is two shallower sections, which on the one downside, really isn't that interesting, and quite monotonous.. haha. In the back you can see my (unorganized) lot of brushes. When organized, they usually go 1 - travel sized brushes 2 - eyeliners/eyebrow pencils/primer 3 - face brushes 4 - eye brushes.

The front usually has my powder of choice (Bourjois Compact Powder), 2 concealers (Bobbi Brown Correcter and MAC Studio Finish Concealer), a bronzer (CANMAKE Shading Powder) and whatever foundation I'm fancying. Sometimes I put in a blush when I'm really fancying it - but atm I'm kind of being a blush slag, and giving them all a go.

 I have to admit, the depth of the latter do bug me a bit, as it's too wide for just one product, but a bit narrow for some products to be stacked one behind another. It bugs me that you see the bits in front of the storage that I can't fit! So it's not the perfect ever organization (as it's also a bit wide..), but I think it's the best I've found for this purpose. I think too many small slots can really restrict how you organize things, and big ones can get messy. Too many lipstick slots are useless unless you're into lipstick, and drawers can be very limiting, cuz you have to put most products on their backs, and I like stacking! :P So I suppose this is the best option I've found yet! :)

What do you use for general everyday make-up stuff?

You can get this at MUJI for about £8.. I think. Don't quote me :P

  4. I love things like this that keep your everyday makeup out! Stacking is annoying but, I've found if its just a few things stacked in a small space, then its still manageable.

  12. Oh I hear you, I'm in a hate hate relationship with my current arrangement. I bought some squared vases, with softer edges, and they hold my brushes fairly well but I have to have 3 of them. I also need some better ideas for my hair brushes, they are flopping around in a too short vase right now and continually
    get tangled up and fall out. Irritating!

    1. Ahh yeah that's the one downside about the big brush stands! I use a tall gift box I got for my brushes, maybe you can find something like that? :)
