How I Store Makeup
15 January 2014
WHITE, CLEAN & SLEEK
Now that I've moved into my own flat (last month), I had made makeup storage a priority of mine. Is that bad? I wanted the storage to match the interior. I've always wanted the Muji acrylic storage drawers and was on the website for an hour deciding on which one to get. Having a measuring tape and google images, I have decided on the two drawers to start off with and purchased two.
I thought that it will be enough to store all of my makeup. I was wrong when it arrived. I think I would need another two so each draw can store specific products. But right now, I have organised it by feature so I can open the drawers downwards when I apply my makeup. For the large makeup palettes, I've placed them on its side next to the drawers. I didn't bring all of them with me as there are more I want to purchase in the future (*cough* Lorac, Inglot *cough*). Here are the drawers from top to bottom:
The base - foundation, concealer, powder and blotting paper.
The eyes - eyebrow pencil, eyeliner, eyeshadow.
The cheeks - blusher and bronzer. I do have products that belong in the base drawer however there isn't enough room..
The lips - lipstick, lipgloss, lip liner and lipcare.
On top of the drawers, I have an owl storage ornament which I have no clue what to store in there as of yet. My lame brush collection is stored in an acrylic pencil pot purchased from WHSmiths. As you can see, I have my makeup remover, eyelash curlers, other tools and some other bits and bobs.
I think this nail storage is my absolute favourite. It is a glass storage, purchased it from BHS for £15. I thought it would fit in all of my nail polish collection however it was smaller than I had expected and could only fit in a third of my collection. I have decided to put the polishes I wear often in this and store the rest in a large makeup bag.
For an added bonus, I might as well include my jewellery storage in this post. The jewellery tree is from Urban Outfitters in the sale for £5. I'm slowly adding more to this.
