When I moved into my own place in August 2014 I knew I wanted to have a space to do my make up. When I was at my parents house I used one desk for homework and make up and art but this time I wanted a separate make up table. Alongside this purchase I knew I wanted the Alex drawers from IKEA. SO today I'm going to show you my make up storage in these drawers and around my vanity area.
For lipsticks, the Alex drawers don't really hold them well, so I bought 4 lipstick holders to store them separately on top of my desk. I find this much more convenient than any other set up, especially with my Mac colours because it's much easier to be able to store them upside down and read the name.
I don't actually wear lipgloss that often at all but I store some in my drawers and some in this Muji shelving. Muji is a great shop for storage (and fine liners...) and these house my lip glosses perfectly.
I store my every day make up in the drawer in my desk along side my palettes. This way it's quicker for me to put on my make up in the morning before work without having to rummage through lots of different drawers if I'm in a rush! I love that this makes these things accessible and that I can stack up my Naked palettes, Mac palettes, etc, without having them all lying flat.
I think eventually I will dramatically downsize my collection even more and at that point the drawers may be used for art storage but for now they're perfect. How do you store your make up?
Love & hugs,
