Makeup Storage ideas

Make up storage

Like most people, I have far too much make up and not enough places to store it. Now I don’t have a silly amount of make up in the sense that I’m not filling chest of drawers up with the stuff, but I do have a bit. More than my current make up storage facilities can accommodate.

So I decided it was time to invest in some quality storage options and being the blogger’s favourite, the first stop was Muji. I love the Muji store and website and could spend hours planning how I’m going to organise my bits and bobs so that my life will feel perfect. Anyone else do that?

I knew that I didn’t want to spend a fortune so decided on four items. The first being the acrylic  five drawer box. This is actually bigger than I thought it would be and fits in a lot of my everyday make-up. The only bad thing I can say about this is that the drawers aren’t actually that deep. So things like my Clinique Even Better Concealer and Benefit Sugarbomb blusher are too big to fit in. But it does hold a lot of my palettes, mascaras, lipsticks and eye shadows.

The other three items that I got were actually the same item. I picked up three of the acrylic pen pots to store my make up brushes and eye pencils in. These were actually smaller than I thought so I can’t buy any more brushes without buying another one of these. But I do really like them. I love the clean feel that you get from acrylic storage and I get a sense of calm when things are organised – sad right?

    I’m loving clear storage, i think it looks less cluttered and is easy to find what you’re looking for! Def need to get myself to Muji asap! Lovely post 🙂

      Totally agree! Muji is just the clear storage heaven. Could spend so much money in there! xx

    I just use a basket at the moment which probably isn’t organised enough! I will be looking into this now xx

    My make up spent so long just living in random make up bags, couldn’t find anything so decided to invest in these. Use whatever works for you but be warned Muji storage is addictive! xx

    Argh, I can’t wait til I have a proper dressing table to store things on! All my bedroom furniture is really tall, so my make up is just tucked away and I can’t see it! Your storage is lovely 🙂

      I spent ages not properly storing my make up and just had it in random make up bags. It now makes it so much easier to see where everything is, Maybe have a look for flatter storage that will fit on top of furniture? x
