Updated Makeup Storage

Updated Makeup Storage 

A couple of posts ago I showed a quick picture of my newly organised makeup storage in a Today in Pictures post. And a couple of people commented on it so I thought that today I would share with you a detailed post on my makeup storage with some more pictures and how I organiser everything. 

Firstly I just want to say that I am not trying to show of about how much makeup I have, I do realise I have a lot more than is necessary. But everything that is here is bought with my own money (or birthday presents).

So here you can see how my whole makeup storage looks. I have it on my window sill by my desk so that I can access it easily. And in the other corner I have a round magnifying mirror which I move down to my desk when I do my makeup. I dream that one day I will have a beautiful white dressing table for all of my makeup and beauty bits! But right now this is the best storage solution that I have found.

As well as my Muji storage I also have this clear makeup storage I think from TK Maxx. I used this to display some of my most used and prettiest makeup. And I love how this looks with the rest of my bedroom.

For my main storage I have three lots of the wide double Muji drawers. Going from the top to the bottom I have everything in the order that I would put my makeup on. Basically base and face products, to eye products to lips. So now I will just briefly go through each of the drawers starting from the top.

In the top drawer I store all of my base and face products, as after moisturiser and suncream this is what I reach of first. I have a couple of primers, my liquid and powder foundations, my concealer and a powder. I also keep my eyebrow kit in this draw and that is my next step and I think it fits well here.

The next draw is a bit of a mismatched one. It was meant to be bronzer, blushers and contour however I also have two larger MUA eyeshadow palettes and my eyelash curlers here and they just fit.

The next drawer that I have is eyeliners and mascaras however I’m just thinking about it and I always do my eyeshadow first so I should probably swap these two drawers around. From left to right I have my liquid eyeliners, crayons/shadow sticks, pencil eyeliners and then mascaras.

This is probably my favourite drawer with all of my different eyeshadows, it just looks so pretty! I have my creme eyeshadows on the right and then other eyeshadows grouped together in brands. As you can probably tell I am very into all my natural brown and bronze colours!

The bottom two drawers are both dedicated to lip products. I have lip crayons on the right of the top draw and then the rest vaguely group with brand. But to be honest these move around quite a lot depending on which are my favourites at the time. And this is hardly ever full like this I had to go and find about three all in different handbags and makeup bags!

Finally I store all f my makeup brushes in this pretty candle holder. I just used boiling water to get all of the wax out. And I love how simple and clean this looks with all of the white in my room.
