My Make-Up Storage

Just a warning - I don't know how this is going to turn out but i'm going to give it a go just so you can see where I put my face on in the mornings & how I store my make-up! 

I don't have a huge amount of make-up, just a 'normal' amount (if there is such thing). I have my favourite things and my go-to's as well, but I do try and keep the minimum amount of make-up as it just gets clogged up & I forget to use most of it. 

So, here's the general layout of my dresser / bedside table / make-up storage...


I love how Glossybox's come in handy for storage once you've messed up your living room with the crate paper that comes inside it...

Wooden Storage box - Ikea
Brush holder - Car boot Sale
Jewellery box - Vintage family pass-down
Mirror - Ikea
Bunny - Topshop
Eye mask - Ebay


Messy jewellery box, but at least it's all in one place! 


 My bunny is one of those microwavable warmers but I heated the lavender bag up for too long & burnt it so now he's a holder for necklaces & my eye masks!



Bottom 2 drawers are my 'junk' drawers - one is for hair donuts & the little box has all my hair grips / bobbles in ... then the next drawer is full of JUNK! Paracetamol, mirrors, setting spray, brush shampoo, tweezers etc etc etc!




Next up is my lips & eye drawer. I try and have all lipsticks / liners in the left side and all my mascaras / eyeliners / eyebrow pencils in the other. It does get messy sometimes but a quick sort out solves it! 




And then the top drawers are my bracelet and palette drawers. The bracelet drawer is a little messy (oopsi) but it has everything I wear as arm candy in there including watches (and some trusty cocoa butter)! The palettes I have are:

Topshop
Sleek iDivine
HD Brows
Primark Eyeshadows
UNIcosmetics
(and a glossybox one that i've never used)!


My bedside reads at the moment are Tulisa's Autobio & my Listography journal (there is also a pregnancy one stashed under the boxes but didn't take a photo of that one) 



Again, a great storage for nail polishes! Thanks Glossybox



Now, this is where it becomes a bit of a mess. I have divided my drawer up into sections but it just doesn't seem to look neat so I do my best at splitting it into sections & keeping it that way...


 Face products including:
Primers
Concealers
Foundations
Powder


Moving across to my nifty collection of false eyelashes! If you haven't seen these on eBay, go check them out! 99p for 10 pairs (although you have to wait 3 weeks, they're worth a bulk buy)! I also bulk buy white eyeliner too as I can never seem to find any when I need some! 


More face products, including:
Blusher
Bronzer
Concealer
Colour sticks
Powder


Last, but not least, are my eyeshadows & lip products. I try and keep these separate because the tins of lip scrubs / vaseline get all greasy and make the eyeshadow pots sticky too, so I just used a lid of a Glossybox and made a little separator! 

It may not look all that but it does the job & suits me just fine. I know where things are, although it may be messy, if I put it there - it stays there normally! 

Do you have a storage system for your make-up or beauty products!?
