Clutter free makeup storage...

I'm a happy bunny today, I found another way to store my makeup!



I found these little baskets from Butlers that were reduced to £2.99 each, so I grabbed 5! (Yes they come in different colours.)


Here's a before and after shot. I loved the way my makeup was stored before but no matter how I positioned things it looked cluttered and I wasn't happy with it and constantly kept swapping from acrylic storage to pretty boxes. Now it's clutter free and adds a more airy feel to the room!


I Absolutely love it, the hubs was impressed too! :)


Here's how I organised things...

  1. Lipsticks
  2. Lipglosses and bases
  3. Blushers
  4. Bronzers and some Sleek palettes
  5. Pencils, eye stuff and Mac palettes


How are you storing your makeup?

Check out my previous STORAGE posts for more organisational ideas.

They're so cute and ideal for make up! I store mine in office supply boxes for pencils etc, also in some lids off of boxes! :)

How adorable! I wonder if they're stackable?

This is wonderful! I recently found some rectangular baskets at a bath shop for 90% off!!! I grabbed a few and am using them for my skin/body care, and one for the makeup I use regularly. Baskets can be so useful and I love how pretty yours are! Not the typical brown basket look!

Muhsine said...

@JC You could stack them but it wont be practical as these ones don't have sturdy bases, plus it would be harder for you to get to what you need.

Those are cute! I currently have mine stored in a mish-mash of things. Makeup I use regularly in stacked plastic drawer sets and other makeup in metal tins from IKEA.

jubs said...

ah love it! you have such great ideas for storage! was wondering where did you get the clear acrylic storage on the left in your 'before' picture from? I know the acrylic drawers on the right are from muji are the ones on left also from there? x

I wouldn't be able to keep organized with your method of storage, but it looks nice. I just bought a slim black dresser for mine. I keep lip products in one drawer, eyeshadows in another, face products, brushes, and so on.

Ooh, I really like this idea - it looks great! :)
My make-up is stored in little mini drawer sets on my dressing table..
It's not the prettiest way but it's working for now!
