I’m always looking for easier ways to access my makeup. Currently it’s all stored in an Ikea Alex 9 drawer unit. And I love it. My husband even helped me personalize it a bit by adding some Pier 1 gold + white knobs to the drawer faces and line the drawer bottoms with some really chic adhesive wallpaper.
The only downside to all of that is my more “everyday” items – mascara, liner, lip gloss- gets hidden away in an out of site, out of mind kind of way. So I figured I needed something super chic that I could display but that I could also kind of see through/in. Enter awesome over-sized candle jars that I save + use for almost everything!
My husband used our hot glue gun to put them together for me because I am just not that graceful with glue or glass + I forever thank him because weeks later they are still going strong! We used 7 jars total *washed with dish detergent, then wiped down with rubbing alcohol* + I decided to forgo the traditional triangle I was seeing everywhere because I just don’t really like that shape…simple enough.
So there ended up being enough slots for a few different shades of lip gloss, eye shadow crayons, mascara + some liquid liners. The beauty about this crafty little glass storage unit is that we could always add more if we need to!
