Updated Make-up Storage

Thursday, 14 February 2013 11:01

The last time I blogged a post about my make-up and cosmetics storage was in October, which I know isn't very long ago, but I recently updated it so that it was a little more organised and easier for me to find things within. I won't talk about the specific products I own, but I will label each drawer/box so you know what each picture is showing!

Every part of my make-up storage is from Ikea. The products used are:
  • Helmer Drawers (Cream)- £25
  • Antonius Drawer Inserts- £1.70 each
  • Brush Pot- Around £3 I think! I can't find a link to it, but I found it near the bathroom accessories section of Ikea.
  • Set of 3 Baskets (Multi-colour Flowers and Leaves)- I can't find their exact link, but click here for something really similar.
I actually own two sets of Helmer drawers now, as I couldn't fit everything in one set (eek). I will only show you the one set that I use for the most interesting things, like make-up and nail polish- as the other set I use for slightly more boring products! Here we go:

Make-up Brush Storage

Eyeshadow Palette Storage

Helmer Storage Drawers, with baskets of most reached for products on top

Nail Polish Drawer

Eyes Drawer- Compartments for Eyeshadows, Eyeliners, Mascaras, Primers/Potted Eyeliners and random bits of kit

Lips Drawer- Compartments for Lip Gloss, Lipsticks, Stains/Lip Creams, Lip Balms and random samples

Face Drawer- Compartments for Contact Lenses, Foundations/Concealer, Blushes, Powder and Face Creams

Nail Care Drawer- Compartments for Nail Wraps, Nail Wheels and different nail related bits

Random Body Drawer- Full of body sprays and creams!

So there you have it! My updated make-up storage. What do you think? Have you got any tips for improvement for me?

  1. I bought these drawers but so far only use them for nail polish. Am debating whether to put my makeup in them or not.

  2. Love it! I have the helmer drawers too but they're not all that organised, I really need some little dividers like those ones you have xx

  3. I've been tempted to invest in these draws but as I am currently trying to condense down my collection I think a lot of drawer space would go to waste! I'm bored of my acrylic drawers, I want something different!
