Sooooooooo, who wants to see my current make-up collection? I currently really love the way I store my make-up at the moment, its handy, practical and doesn’t look all to bad.
I’m currently living between two homes; My flat in London where I live during the week with two friends, whilst I’m at uni, and on the weekends I go home to the house I have lived my entire life, with my parents in Essex. So at the moment I don’t have my entire collection all in one place. All my favourite bits are here, in London where I spend the majority of my time, and the rest is back at the family home, which I haven’t got pictures of yet!
This is my bedside table where I keep my ‘stuff’!
The four tier silver storage thing was like £5 from a little random store on my high street back home, and the silver mesh thing is a stationary separator from Staples, which cost around £6! It is the perfect size to fit on top of the drawers, and to also hold any random bits. I keep eye cream, lip balms, some foundations, body oils, brush cleaner and hair sprays here, as well as random essential oils and tattoo balms!
So, I’ll go through all of the drawers with you.
First drawer – Eye shadows! Pigments, glitters, shimmer cubes, paint pots etc! The Barry M dazzle dusts are kept in a Muji box/tray thing!
Second drawer – Lip products! This is my favourite drawer! I keep most of my lipsticks in a, get this, ferrero rocher box – these are incredible and the perfect size to hold lipsticks, so next time you polish off a box, use it to store! I keep lip glosses next to the lipsticks, and there is another ferrero box at the back holding even more lip products.
Third drawer – Blushers and bronzers! I have a selection of shimmer waves, mineralized skin finishes and blushes which I adore, along with a few Body Shop limited edition blushers!
Fourth drawer – Eyeliners/mascaras! I keep a few false lashes on top, and underneath are mascaras, glitter liners, pencil kohls, and two eye shadows quads! Again, my favourite glitter liners are in a Muji tray that you can see below!
Okay, so thats the drawers, onto the other bits!
These clear drawers are the cutest things ever! They are from Muji and it even has a mirror on the top lid, it was around £8 and they have loads of varieties of these boxes, I highly recommend! Here I keep products that I reach for regularly, Body shop eye shadows and shimmer cubes, Mineral foundation, etc.
I keep some brushes in a JD mug. Mainly foundation and blusher brushes, along with some nail files.
The products that I will most probably use every day. I keep my recent favourite lipsticks and blushes here, along with my concelers, mascaras and brushes. I used to keep my everyday products in a make-up bag, but it got messy and a box is a much cleaner option. I rarely close the top lid like in the picture above though. The box was under £2 from Hobby Craft!
So, what does every one think? I ADORE looking at make-up storage solutions and other peoples collections, so I hope you enjoy mine. If there are any products which you spy and would like a review/swatch of, then let me know, also if there is anything that you want to know what it is, then comment below and I’ll get back to you asap!
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX P.S How amazing is the weather in London at the moment!! I can’t help but be in the best mood because of it!
P.P.S All of the items here were bought with my own money!
