Makeup mess: bag organizer to the rescue
Guess what? After I posted about my little tote bag organizer, it struck me that I can use another one to organize my daily makeup items. I do my makeup in the toilet and have been storing the items in a cosmetic pouch. However, the cosmetic pouch has limited space and it was increasingly difficult for me to find my brushes or concealer. A bag organizer would be useful with the different storage pockets and the little handles mean I can carry it around without much hassle.
Good thing for me was that I spotted an almost similar one from a mobile cart store. It has the same size but doesn’t come with the trimmings. But at a discounted price of S$18.90, I am not complaining.
More organized with the different pockets
See…I have so much room to store my stuff. I can even place different items in different pockets and I no longer have to dig deep into my cosmetic pouch to find items or run into the room just to grab a missing item. I am so pleased because this is making my makeup routine so much easier especially when I’m rushing for time in the morning! Yippee!
More storage room for more makeup items
So no more space limit as now, I have more than enough room to store more makeup items, particularly the brushes. And because all the items are so well organized, I won’t have to forget applying stuff like the concealer or the primer for the eyes as I sometimes do because they’re buried deep in the cosmetic pouch. Isn’t that just so neat?
Keep my brushes away from dust
But I don’t want to leave my brushes out in the open as they will inevitably collect dust. I have brush guards but they don’t protect them from dust in the open too. I don’t like the idea of using makeup brush bags either because they’re not exactly hygienic over time. I need some sort of disposable covers and it occurred to me that I can improvize one out of the disposable tea bags that I had purchased for my DIY beauty recipes.
DIY brush covers
All I need are the disposable tea bags and tiny hair bands to secure the cover on the brushes. The whole covering and securing takes just a few seconds so it’s definitely not time consuming. On top of that, the tea bags are cheap and cost only S$3.50 for 85 of them while a pack of the hair bands are just S$0.30, which means replacing them would be pain-free too.
I’m grinning from ear to ear
I am loving my new makeup bag organizer! And with the brushes all properly covered, I have no worries about them collecting dust in the open. In fact, I gave them all a good bath so that they can take their places in the new home. I think they’re pretty happy too.
