Make Up Storage

I wanted to show you beautyholics :) how I store my make up, I always find this subject quite intriquing.. I love watching organisation videos on YT to get new ideas. This is my take on keeping my fav items organised..

I purchased this 6 drawer organiser from the Laura Ashley line at WHSmith.


I store my pigments in the 1st drawer, mascaras, eye liners, lip pencils etc in the 2nd drawer. The 3rd drawer contains all of my NARS & Benetint and high beam by Benefit!


The 4th drawer contains my lip products and the 5th drawer contains my face products.


Finally the 6th drawer contains my eyeshadow palettes, bases, primers and concealers.


You can also buy other items from the Laura Ashley line at WHSmith, I store my electrical hair items as well as hair taming products in the largest box, I keep my travel make up bags in the 2nd largest. I keep my nail varnishes etc in the documents box and my hair bands & clips in the smallest.
Sooo what do you think? I hope I can inspire some of you to get something like this, it's so nice to have pretty organisers as the items inside are very precious :) this is working great for me so far, no mess no fuss, everything has a place.. and best of all I don't leave a mess in the morning.

I love it! I have just had to buy a few boxes from Ikea to store my make up as i now have too much for my tool kit! Doesn't look as lovely as this though :)

bubblegarm said...

I used to use the wooden boxes from ikea, then I stored them in the top row of my chest of draws seperated into sections, then I had them in bags, then in acrylic draws from muji, and finally this :) I still have my drawers from Muji (dunno what i will fill them with - any ideas?), it took up way more space than this tho, this organizer makes my make up look like a small collection, actually has v deep drawers. :))

I just found this on WHSmith, it's a bargain, am going to buy it now if you don't mind me copying, hehe!!! I need to store my jewellery somewhere, and my current make up storage is better suited to jewellery! Gorgeous :) x x x

Lazula said...

WOAH, thats really nice! I am obsessed with boxes and little draws. I think I may have to change my Ikea boring draws for these :) Hmmm do they come in Dark purple....? :D

dressjunkie said...

This is so cool, I was blogging earlier about how I need "prettier" storage ideas. :)
This is exactly what I'm looking for. I must have a good look in there when I get paid. I need the boxes to be in teals/ golds/ duck egg colours tho xx

bubblegarm said...

ooo copy copy copy :) i really dont mind, they have this one from the laura ashley line, and whsmith has their own one and its torquoise.. very pretty too and cheaper. i havent seen other colours... x

ally said...

Love this, the colours and design are super pretty. It wouldn't go with my room though cause my room is a light brown & cream and this is pink :P xxx

Hi there,
I love the drawer set you have for your makeup, but this isn't available where I live. Is there some way I could buy this item somewhere else???
I looked on Ebay & they had sold one, but the auction was over though it wasn't as pretty as yours.
