Storage tip:- candle jar brush holder

I always love a good storage tip and thought I'd share this tip on my blog since I tweeted it along time ago and Im aware that not all of my twitter followers follow my blog and vice versa.

This post is about how I store my sigma brushes 

I was given the above candle by my sister, and at first I did not want to use it because I knew it would eventually finish but then I realised that Id probably be able to still use it as decoration or storage 

Over the last few years it has stored various makeup items 
makeup pencils such as eyeliners and lipliners  but since last year it has been holding my sigma brushes 

Its really easy to do 
You simply wait for the candle to burn down 
if you burn your candles with care your candles should burn equally down 
(let me know if you want tips on candle burning)
and the bottom should be virtually bare except for a metal wick holding base 
and any light bits of wax are easily scraped off. 

and you can store cosmetics, stationary or even jewellery. 

I have various different jars to hold all sorts of shizzles :)

Do you have any good storage tips ??

LOTD:- Mac Modesty

Mac Modesty Cremesheen lipstick

Mac modesty is a cremesheen lipstick its a browny mauveish pink
and it makes a gorgeous neutral lip colour for all skin tones it makes a great nudeish lip colour for darker skin tones above nw45/ nc45
and the perfect milky creamy neutral shade for anyone similar to my skin tone so nc25, nc30, nc35.
as always I suggest 'you' can wear 'anything' you want too !

HOTD:- loose swirly curls

My top favourite hair tool has to be my GHD flat iron hair stylers 
I have quite a few as back ups I love them that much that I almost started collecting them -yes, sadly its true! 
But I realied my mistake and thankfully I have stopped. 
(I have already reviewed my GHDs if you are interested)

I do like the various different looks that I can create with my GHDs but I wanted to try out a Yogi conical styling wand (let me know if you want me to review this. 

IOf all the looks I have tried with the yogi wand 
this look is my favourite 
very spirally but still loose curls -ohh how I wish I could wake up to hair like this!

(BTW this pic was also taken in the winter and it was just starting to snow so you can see a few iddy biddy snow flakes against my dark hair )

What do you think ?
