My Makeup Storage


Recently I've been having a major overhaul in the way I store my make-up, having so much of the stuff means that it can take up quite a bit of room and as I have a small-ish bedroom, I like to try and make the most of my space! For about 2 years I've stored my makeup in the floral drawers from WHSmith which did the job perfectly however they are quite bulky when you have 3 of them. I've moved the majority of my makeup into one of my big drawers (Ikea Malm Drawers), and used boxes to organise it into little sections... which looks a little something like this!

I also like to keep my everyday products on my desk so I can access them quickly and have things ready to do my make-up in the morning so I'm more time than necessary getting ready (I'd rather the extra 10 minute snooze). This is the current overview of my desk (vanity) area! I keep my everyday and most used products in this acrylic cosmetic organiser which also has a top section which holds my powder products, lipsticks, lip butters, pencils etc. This is absolutely great as it allows me to see my products and I like the concept of changing up the contents of these drawers to help me use a bigger variety of products rather than sticking to the same old things! My brushes stay in my brush holder (office tidy thing-a-ma-bobby) from Tk.Maxx and I keep my lipsticks in this clear lipstick holder just because they look pretty.

If you want to see how which products are in the drawers then check out my little vine video here. Where do you store your makeup, and how? I'd love to know! Hope you enjoyed this little delve into my make-up space.

*products kindly gifted by banggood, although I didn't pay for these items with my own money, my opinion is as always, 100% mine.

    1. Thanks.. I'm really happy with it at the moment. The drawers were from a website called 'banggood' - the link is up above, I like the muji ones but find them quite expensive and everyone has them, I like that these have the little handles too! :) PLEASE MOVE BACK. xxx

  5. Soo organized! I've got places to store things, but not enough places and too many things, hehe!

    Your collection looks great set up like that, though, must be so easy to find things.

    (Following as we're both doing the same blog swap and I'm interested to see other peoples posts!)

  9. This storage is an inspiration to me! All of my makeup is currently sitting in two different makeup bags, incredibly uninspired.
