My Makeup Storage

It’s been a long time coming but I am finally happy with my makeup storage! Don’t you just love the feeling when something that you’ve been unhappy for forever finally all comes together? That’s how I feel this week after taking a trip to Ikea and coming out with a hefty load. A hefty load including £150 worth of furniture more than I anticipated leaving with. Whoops…

So since I’m finally happy with my finished look and my glorious new dressing table and drawers, I thought I’d share them with you!

The middle of my dressing table is my favourite part, these quirky glass jars are perfect for my makeup and beauty essentials!

The left side of my dressing table – a gorgeous clock that my sister bought me for Christmas, the standard Ikea plant pot full of makeup brushes, my coveted Umberto Giavanni Hairspray and my massive pump of Soap and Glory’s Hand Food! The drawer holds my Simple makeup wipes and my Lush Tea Tree Water. 

The right hand side of my desk is a little more cluttered, although no where near any less important! My beloved Christmas Cookie Yankee Candle sits alongside my Body Shop lip balm, Lush Bubblegum lip scrub and my Batitse Dry Shampoo. Yet another Ikea plant pot sits with my lonely Denman tangle tamer in. The drawer is full of hair bands and hair accessories!

The main drawer of my desk is full of my everyday makeup with my makeup bags stashed away. I find it so easy this way, to just pop out the drawer and have everything I need in order!

Once again another Ikea / beauty blogger staple. I fell in love with these drawers straight away and couldn’t help but buy them straight away!

The first couple of drawers are filled with my other makeup, my face cleansing and skincare products. I’ve popped them in these cute little wicker baskets that I found lying around the house, it makes it all so much easier to control and keep neat!

Excuse the terrible quality of images here; these next two drawers are filled of all my Lush/ bath products and all of my hair care products. I never realised how much I had before! Definitely need to start using up all of these and pop myself on a spending ban!

These are the two drawers that a couple of months ago, I thought would never exist. But beauty blogging is a blessing and a torment. I have fallen in love with nail polish all things nails and I have also stepped into the wondrous world of self tan. These are my ‘newbie’ drawers, as I like to call them. The drawers that I can see being opened a lot over the next couple of months as I experiment more. Tan post coming soon!

What is your makeup storage like?

    I Love post like these, the glass jars look amazing! what a fab idea especially cotton pads as they always just look so randomly placed on my desk, think I may look for some of these.
    I can't wait to get my own place as I don't want to buy new furniture till then and those drawers look so perfect for all my make up xxx

      I've really found the glass jars an absolute godsend and having all of my crap organised into drawers is also! 🙂 XX

    Fantastic, I love how organised these drawers make things. I'm going to have to get myself some for sure, there's a perfect space in the built in wardrobe for them too. Thanks for posting.

    great post, I need to get some proper storage for my stuff, it just sort of lies around the bathroom sink most of the time! Found your blog through the ad on Leanne Marie's blog, love it! 🙂
