Anon, a reader emailed to ask this on my post about makeup storage:-
You said you don’t use a traincase to store your makeup. Why don’t you? And where can I buy a train case?
Well Anon, You got it right. I did say I don’t use a traincase to store my makeup. I’d done it before but I found it impractical. I’m not saying its not a good idea – it is! But for me, its only a good idea if you want to keep away your cosmetics every time after using it due to space constraints, or if you travel a lot with your cosmetics, like makeup artists do.
For the everyday individual, I would suggest boxes and plastic or wooden drawers as a better storage option because the majority of us will not be toting our cosmetics around.
Using a train case too takes up a lot of space – believe it or not. Try opening one up and you’ll know what I mean. Once you expand all those tiered trays, the train case has a huge footprint and might just take up more space than a box or drawer set. Still, you can see and take everything you want in one go, so much depends on what you want 🙂
