My own mini-Sephora

Dearest Crablings, you know how your makeup gets scattered everywhere and one day you look up and say ick? Normally I thrive in my organized disorganization, but this time I put my #32 brush down.

I needed a cheap way to organize my proud collection of colors and bring some order to half this ish that I never use. That, and the psychological impetus to not SET FOOT again in a Sephora/Ricky’s/MAC/NARS/Chanel counter until 50% of this stuff is actually used.

Enter Target. Surprise surprise. I scoured local discount chains (oh, and Pier One) in search of shelving or multi compartment “trays” that I could attach to the wall. Finalists were TJ Maxx and Target. Target won out due to the structure of each compartment. But I am oh so proud. And in my crazy head, now I have my own mini-Sephora to shop in every morning. Joy.

Pros: Organized makeup and an etagere restored to uncomplicatedness.

Cons: Couldn’t decide whether I wanted the color to match my decor..or my product packaging…; I still have a closet full of product to get through. But that’s another post…

Damage: $6.99 and one bruised finger (due to lack of hammering skills) … Ciao bellas. ♥
