Tips and Tricks for Things: Makeshift Make-up Kit

A while back I wrote about using kitchen hooks as necklace holders, but the hooks aren’t the only kitchen/home tools that could belong in your closet.

One thing I’ve always had trouble with is organiziing my small make-up collection. I used to dump everything in one of my bathroom drawers, but this is inefficient and impractical. Choosing one eye pencil, for instance, meant wading through lip liners, mascaras, lipsticks, and the occasional actual pencil, and took forever.

I solved this problem by purchasing in this wooden utensil holder with a lock and clear cover, from the houseware department at the Landmark for about 200 pesos. The clear cover makes all your make-up visible without having to lift the lid, and the generously spaced dividers separate lipsticks, brushes, and foundations beautifully.

Because it isn’t marketed as a cosmetics case, it is priced considerably lower. A real make-up toolkit of this size and capacity is likely to set you back several hundred pesos upwards of that.

Tip: For storage and organization ideas, skip the fancy boutiques and head to the department store home area. It’s a much less glamorous place to shop, but you can really get more than your money’s worth.
