I have decided that every Monday will be a storage post. Go me! It was supposed to be on a Sunday, but Sundays are for chillin'. Mondays are for getting your act together. I will share with you little corners of my home and how I organise and store things.
Here's my makeup corner which is basically a little shelf from Ikea and a mirror above that I picked up from a charity shop years ago.
My makeup is stored in the Ikea wooden boxes as you have seen before, I recently re-did the drawers again with wallpaper that I can wipe clean. It's actually leftovers from the sitting room feature wall. I had previously spray painted the frame a matte white.
Yes I still have my Dymo labels. The labels used are - Gloss, Eyes, Pigments, Bases, Perfumes & Cheeks. Yes, I keep my perfume in a drawer, I'm not too crazy about having them on display as it can look cluttered. (I would love to have them on show if I actually had a proper dressing table and a massive room!)
I said bye bye to the crochet bunting and did a photo banner with black & white Instagram prints. I had ordered them from Prinstagram for Esra's birthday, but they arrived too late as Fedex was being weird. So I used them for this project instead. I hung them up with twine and small wooden pegs and it turned out pretty cute!
On top of the box I store some everyday items for easy reach, brushes, palettes and lipsticks. The rustic silver pot stores my hair bands and hair clips. The lipsticks are stored in a clear acrylic cube from Muji. Yes that's my condensed lipstick collection. :) The small rustic drawer unit is from 'Butlers' and the lower drawer stores all of my pencils.
I always like to burn a candle and it's currently 'Mellow Figs & Garden Mint' by Lily Flame which smells lovely and fresh.
And that's a wrap. I don't have a chair, I just rush around standing up with my face pushed up against the mirror. If I place a chair under it then Esra climbs up and then I'm basically finished. Out of reach and out of the way is my motto.
How do you store your make up?
