My Make Up Storage

make up storageEvening beauties! Lately there's been a lot of posts about how many store their make up , and how they organise their collection. The word organisation and me do not mix at all, so I'm not even going to pretend that I consider this a good way of organising your stuff, but I thought you might like to see where I do my make up etc.

So above is my dressing table and where I do my make up and hair each morning! It's basically an old desk that I've converted into a dressing table. The mirror is from Laura Ashley and the chair I use was made by my Great Grandmother. Normally my dressing table is an absolute tip...it's a collection of pretty much everything! I have all my brushes out here, my B eyeshadows, hair bows scattered all over the place, and then some of my earrings in the corner.

I store all my MAC brushes in here, as well as misc brands. I also keep a brush cleaner out by them, and then my Kabuki brushes sit by the side. The second pot, the gorgeous sparkly one, holds all my B brushes as I just felt they deserved their own sparkly arrangement! I also have the MAC Hello Kitty brush holder which holds small brushes, mostly SE MAC brushes. I also like to put liners or things that I use everyday in here.

As you'll see from my dressing table, a lot lives there, but that's only really the stuff I use everyday like mascara, concealer etc. For ages I stored my make up in one single drawer but it was getting chaotic so one day in Staples I came across these little beauties! Well, okay, they're not exactly beauties, and I would so have preferred them to be pink, but they do the job so c'est la vie! On top I have another earring holder, some perfumes, make up accessories (crystals, etc) and a letter rack which stores my MAC and other palettes. Love this thing so much, and again from Staples! The left drawers contain perfume bits, nails, skincare and then haircare. To be honest, it's an absolute MESS other than the nail drawer. I seem to find comfort in organised chaos, haha. I'm not going to show you what's in each drawer, but here's a sneak peek of my nails layout...

So the first is lips, then eyeshadows, liners and mascaras, face, eyelashes and lastly pigments, glitters etc. It doesn't always stay that way, but I try! It ranges from complete mess...

I'm definitely going to think about making mine a bit neater, as so many other bloggers on here have inspired me to do so. Hope you're all having a great weekend!

  10. Thank you girlies! <3

    @ Bethany- do you mean the blue ones? They were from Staples! They were by all the other drawers. Unfortunately my local only did them in blue, so it doesn't go with my room at all! Other than that they're fantastic.
