Nowhere about these “first” and “second” is not mentioned in the instructions for storing cosmetics, but if you think logically, then these points become obvious.

Where to store cosmetics at home

You need to store cosmetics in cabinets, in a regular room.

  • The boxes should be of different heights.
  • Before that I had a drawer unit with equally high drawers. I was tormented and did not know where to put the brushes, which need the minimum height.

Therefore, I bought them in Ikei, namely:

  • Alex series with 9 drawers
  • “Alex” series 2 drawers with 5 drawers
  • Linnmon worktop
  • Torsby glass

I tried to look for analogs in other furniture stores, but apart from school desks with sloping wooden cabinets, I did not find anything. Although, no. I found one designer table with very stylish side tables for some 300 thousand rubles

I store my cosmetics in closed cabinets. Even brushes. In cups, they quickly become covered with dust. And if they stand next to the window, then in the evening you can shake off the dust from them.

  • Hence the second solution – buy glass for the table… Having covered the work surface with it, I saved it from all types of loose products, glitter, pigments, loose shadows and others that easily spoil furniture and cosmetics.

In general, I thought of everything “from” and “to” in order to make the most of the space.

Each type of cosmetics has its own box, for example, lipsticks.
