I know it's a bit of a late one but I've been meaning to do this post for a while now. Having three days off for New Year and nothing else to do I decided to pull everything out and reorganize a little bit.
Sometimes it makes me feel better to rearrange a little rather than change the whole storage system..feels fresh, like a nice new start to the year.
Everything listed is from Muji or Ikea.
Lipstick storage.. acrylic drawers from Muji. These are great because they're stackable. I have a whole load of extras stored away incase I need to use them. The lipsticks & glosses used to be in colour co-ordination with lip balms and stains seperate but I find it looks tidier when they're sorted into brands.
Brushes are held in Muji containers aswell. They are in two seperate containers with 3 compartments. I have all my brushes sorted into size rather than purpose as some brushes are multi-purpose.
The first draw of lip products is lipsticks on top...then the 2 drawers pull out to be lipliners with contact lenses underneath. I also have 1 Rapidlash and eye drops.
Nextdoor lives my lip butters and lipglosses. I fell so in love with the lip butters that I went a little crazy and bought them all lol. They're great for a quick pick me up and go. And my dazzleglasses/ Every girls best friend. Love them!
I also have 2 Helmer drawers from Ikea which store all smy other cosmetic products. Left hand side is all face products and eyelashes, whilst the right side is mostly tools & eyeshadows or eye products.
Cheek & face products. Sorted by brand mainly. The plastic bits in the middle that seperate them are just the detachable things from the Muji sets. You can section the lipstick thing (above) into 9, but I took the parts out to create sections in this drawer.
Boxed eyelashes...I always get boxes when Im abroad...so this is my stash. They stack nicely =)
These are all seperate eyelashes in sets of 1 or 2's that I just throw in here. Dont use these much, they're just more lustful items that I've gotten my hands on that I like to admire and MAYBE use once in a while LOL. Can't get enough of lashes =D
And the bottom two drawers are just useful stuff that I might need every now and again that I don't use everyday..nail things, phone cases, batteries..etc...
consists of the following,
I LOVE LOVE LOVE my HD Brows Kit! I use it everyday and its soooo much better than the benefit one! Can anyone recommend a better eyebrow kit? I wana try Anastasia.
Another acrylic storage thing from Muji. Again I took out some of the parts to make it less sections. As you can see they're my two favourite babies Mr & Mrs Naked. Maybelline 24 Eye Tatoo, eyeliners, NYX Jumbo Pencils and some other gel liners by Kate, Mac, Bobbi Brown c and my trusty UDPP.
I have so many eyeshadow palettes that I try to squeeze them all into two drawers so I dont have to keep opening them all up to see. I can pull this open and see nearly everything. Under my UD<3nyc 120="120" 88="88" a="a" and="and" as="as" blush="blush" cheap="cheap" color="color" cos="cos" don="don" faced="faced" few="few" have="have" i="i" im="im" in="in" love="love" more="more" mua="mua" neutral="neutral" one="one" only="only" p="p" palette.="palette." palette="palette" palettes="palettes" really="really" sleek="sleek" so="so" some="some" such="such" t="t" the="the" them="them" then="then" think="think" too="too" ud="ud" use.="use." which="which" with="with">
More palettes, just one large FrontCover one from years ago that I hardly use. Don;t know why I don't reach for it because it has gorgeous colours! Some Mac Mineralize Eyeshadows and Revlon paletes....the shiny plastic ones on the left are all ones I got from Hong Kong when I was there. Some Lavuscha, Kate and Canmake. They're such great on the go eyeshadows.
The final one is more eyeshadows but loose ones. I got some cheap mineral ones from Ebay and it had like 120 colours...never used them even though they're gorgeous! And some Barry M which are also great...and just some samples I've had in the past I throw in there.
And then another tool draw...my more useful make up bits. Or spares.
You know when you watch these youtube videos of make up gurus in America and they get all these great storage trays from like the dollar store or harveys or whatever their stores are called. There's nothing in the UK that has that. I looked everywhere online for the little plastic trays I have but theres not much option....Can anyone suggest anywhere that sells that type of storage. Or a website in America that ships worldwide? x
Or anyone can suggest anything else I can use for great methods of drawer storage? x3nyc>
