Another (mainly) picture post - this time how I store my brushes (and a sneak peek at the brushes I use!)
|My brush storage|
I use these acrylic storage options from everyone's favourite Japanese office/home/storage/quirky store, Muji. I am lucky in that there's one of these in Dublin but they also have an online store here; the ones I use are the Acrylic Box - 2 drawers/wide, Acrylic Box - 1 drawer/wide and Acrylic 3-drawer unit. I appreciate that these are not the cheapest option, but they stack nicely and you can always add more as your collection grows :-)
Because I'm a little OCD I have these sectioned-off and labelled in terms of how I like to use brushes (so others may swap around what I consider powder or buffer brushes or even eye or concealer brushes, for example), but the system works for me.
Some of my brushes...
|Eyeliner & Brow brushes|
|Dual Fibre brushes|
|Highlighting & Buffer brushes|
|Blusher & Contour brushes|
And last, but not least:
|My current brushes|
Please ignore over-exposure - it was a rare exceptionally sunny day!
This is where I store my brushes which are currently in-use; in an (old style) Make Up For Ever Dani pouch. At the moment, I'm big-time favouring my Louise Young fan brush for powder and highlighter, my Illamasqua blusher brush (review here
) for blusher (flat) and contour (edge), my LY02 (another Louise Young) foundation brush (more info here
) and a bunch of recently acquired Hakuhodo brushes for my eyes... by the time I wash 'em all though (end of this week), all of those favourites will have changed again :-)
I've written a lot of brush posts to-date - rather than list them all, I've included a custom google search with all of the posts linked (if you're any way interested!) - for example I have a complete series on eye brushes (starts here) and a bunch of brush cleaner reviews here.
And look here for Part I (How I store my MAC Palettes). Thanks for reading!
