The Make up Storage UPDATE


Argh, make up storage, one of my favourite subjects. In fact organising my make up is one of my favourite past times - tell me I'm not alone? Gosh, I remember when my products fit in a standard make up bag, what happened? But lately it's been looking a bit cluttered so I've had another re-jig.



I'm still using Muji Acrylic Wide Drawers from £7.95 here 


Powder Blushers
Bronzers, Face Powders and Highlighter
Cream and Powder Blushers
Lipsticks

The Dressers is from Ikea, part of them Hemnes range. The drawer version that I have is no longer available but the dressing table version is still for sale £190 here.

It houses a whole lotta products.....


I found this handy little drawer organiser in Ikea (sorry it has no name) which is perfect for storing the "spill-over" products in the top drawer....


I keep my most used brushes in this pretty pot (from a local interiors store, added the ribbon myself) on top of the dresser, the rest are in the top draw. It's less cluttered than having multiple pots up top and protects them from dust.


This gorgeous vintage glass tray is an amazing charity shop find and keeps my skincare and candles looking tidy, plus my YSL lipstick because it's too gorgeous to hide away. Hand held butterfly mirror £2.95 dotcom gift shop here.





Candle holder and love heart light from Next here.


Hope you enjoyed having a peek through my space. Let me know what you think and please leave any links to your own storage in the comments box - like I said, it's my favourite past time.

    1. I have the same problems. Sometimes I have perfumes out on the glass try but they start to look cluttered. I don't have very many so I tend to keep them in the top drawer. Nails are a problem for me. I have some plastic storage drawers for them, not the prettiest but they do the job. I'll try to do a post on them soon. x

    1. So true. The muji drawers are frustrating because you can't quite fit two layers of them either. Let me know if you find the solution x

  14. The rates of the storage place are pretty reasonable, especially for a location like this, and they offer billing options to provide an overall great experience.
