One of the best ideas I've had in terms of makeup storage is reusing my old Crystal Light containers (these are store brand, but you get the idea). Here I took the old container, removed the packaging, washed and dried the container and decorated it with a page from an old Sephora catalog. Inside, I placed lip pencils & lip glosses.
I store most of my brushes in a brush roll, but find that my double sided brushes get used a lot so I like to keep those out. I've found a toothbrush holder that stores my liquid eyeliners in the center, and my double sided brushes:
It's really important to me not to mix dirty and clean brushes. To keep things sanitary, I use the Crystal Light container pictured below, and the clear container the beads came in below to place my dirty brushes when I am done using them. I clean my brushes daily with a daily brush cleaner, and do a deep clean once a week.
This is a piece of furniture I got on sale at Homegoods. The top opens up and I store my foundations and concealers to the left and my blushes and bronzers in the bag to the right. The drawers open up, where I store my eyeshadow singles, false lashes and lipsticks.
I am going to start hosting corporate makeup parties for team building exercises as well where I will be doing mini makeovers, makeup lessons and sharing samples with the participants.
