I have noticed that a lot of people in the beauty community have “beauty rooms”. In the past, I never understood why someone would want to store their makeup in a separate room, and not in their bathroom next to their sink. That seems very inconvenient. It was not until I posted on Snapchat that I wanted one of the Alex Drawers from Ikea that my friend told me that it is actually really bad to store your makeup in your bathroom.
I did some research online and sure enough, she was right! Basically, I found that steam from the shower can make your makeup age (go bad more quickly). Not only that, the moisture and humidity from the bathroom can cause bacteria, mold, and fungus to grow on your makeup products! EEK. I mean, it makes sense but I had never really thought of that before.
I am now the proud owner of both the Alex drawers and my own beauty room (aka our guest bedroom). Is it convenient? Not particularly. The lighting is not as bright as my vanity lights in the bathroom (the lights are also bad for your makeup) and I have to take my beautyblender into the bathroom to wet it. However, I can definitely say that I will never store makeup in my bathroom again.
Where do you store your makeup??
