Be-wa-re, do not try to do this at home. I am serious, having so many brushes is not a necessity and it will never be… unless it helps you find happiness. It does help me, not because I am a superficial junkie but mainly because my passion triggered the creation of this blog and it just could not get better, the insane community of truly amazing friends gathered around this topic is just as passionate and genuine. ”I am what I am because of who we all are.” As simple as that.
In the past I have done so many student jobs, from modelling to working in hospitals, working in a radio, or in restaurants, some of these jobs were either volunteering or to pay for part of my studies, I usually get bored very easily unless I keep myself busy at all times. Despite everything I did in the past during my free time I never had as much fun as I have today and I can’t thank you enough. You keep me busy and I love that!
I don’t think I have the largest collection in the world because I know some collectors live in the shadows, I talked to a few of them in MakeupAlley so I know they exist, they may not own as many Japanese brands but they do own just as many brushes as I do -I think, but I am not betting my brushes on it either!
I am really looking forward to having the studio ready for the final furniture and decoration but they still have to break the walls, the floor, move the windows, ALL of it still has to be done. I am tired of waiting, I just want to grab the tools and do it myself! The dust has calmed down but still, no way I am leaving the brushes in holders at the moment. I had to find a safer temporary solution : the Ikea Alex drawer unit.
I got it last week, built it myself in under one hour and couldn’t wait to start filling it with brushes! Well, that was close, just enough room, for the majority. The Hakuhodo S series (3) didn’t make it but since I love to look at them for the moment they are outside the drawers, I’ll find some room for them in my other dresser. I took the smaller version of this Besta Burs since the longer one does not fit for now… In glossy white of course … love it!
The kabukis (2) are stored under muffin bells (most of the kabukis anyway). For the rest of the brush collection it fits in the 6 Alex drawers, I will today open the drawers for you, one by one, if you are ready for it… take a deep breath.
