Here is a simple idea on how to keep your brushes neat and easy to access.
|My Inspiration - Image from Google|
You can sort your brushes by category. Eyeshadow brushes, blush & powder bushes and even foundation brushes. I don't have such a huge collection of brushes so I just put them all into one vase/jar that was lying around the house.
You can find affordable vases at Sheet Street and Mr Price home.
Mascara & Eye pencils:
I only store the ones that I use often because it was quite small. You can buy proper metal pencil holders at GAME from R9.95, which can fit a lot more.
Metal containers can be spray painted to a different colour to match with the rest of your room's decor.

For now, I keep all mine in a cosmetic bag. Will give you an update once I incorporate this into my makeup organisation.
Nail Polishes:Being a nail fanatic, I have tons of different nail polishes. I have been going crazy because most of the time they just pile up in a basket and when I try to find a specific colour I end up unpacking the whole darn thing.

I had to get some way to organise my polishes so that I can access them easily but still take up as little space as possible.
I googled some ideas like the one on the right and hit my very own Epiphany...
...any lady that has a Glambox or Glossybox can have the perfect way to store their nail polishes!

You aren't limited to just one. You can arrange your polishes by size, height, colour and even brand!
Ideas that I am dying to try out.
Follow this link to Laura Thoughts. She came up with the beautiful board on the left and she shows a step by step process on how to get a magnet board just like hers.
I think it would also be a great idea to get a bigger board and put a mirror in the centre with the cosmetics surrounding it. Call it an all-in-one-makeup-station :)
Its great ideas like this that got me inspired to get my cosmetics organised.
You can sort them by size or palette colours making it really easy to find what you're looking for.
You can find these letter/envelope sorters at most stationary stores. If they come in bland colours you can always spray paint them to match the rest of your room's decor.
I really find this idea helpful but might become a problem if your cosmetic collection is a big larger than what it can hold. Can be great to store products you use on a daily basis.
I have been searching for prices and you can find a really nice one at GAME for R94.95. They come in different colours and have many drawers to store your cosmetics. (Not suitable for nail polishes though)
Thank you for reading this post. I hope some of these ideas inspired you to organise your makeup and other cosmetics. If you have some ideas not mentioned above then please tweet them to me on twitter. You can also post photo's on my Facebook page, of ideas that you have tried and might inspire other readers.
Dont really have things lying around the house to use as cosmetic storage? Dis-chem has acrylic storage containers :)
