Make Up Storage

Hello Ladies,

By nature I’m quite an organised person, not necessarily always tidy though. My make-up is stored in the bottom of one of my cupboards on the bottom shelf and always looks untidy.  As soon as I tidy my cupboard, it looks a mess by the next day.  I’ve been looking at a lot of blog posts and YouTube videos about make-up storage and it really inspired me to do something about my mess.  I looked at the clear cube and thought it looked great, apart from the ridiculous price, it wouldn’t fit in the bottom of my cupboard.  I therefore went with the cheaper option of Muji.  I still spent over £40 on 3 of the 2 wide drawers with lids and 2 pen pots.  I had wanted the drawers without lids but they weren’t in stock and I couldn’t be bothered to wait.  So here is how I got on…

My Lovely Parcel
Well Wrapped Up
Out of Wrapping & Stacked

My Cupboard

My Make-Up Out of Cupboard

All tidied

Draw 1 – Foundation & Primer
Highlighter’s & Blushers
Lipstick & Lipgloss
Less Used Highlighter, Blusher & Primer
Naked Palettes
Mascara, Touche Eclat, Eye & Lip Pencils


 I’m surprised how much make-up I have when I seen it all out, I actually threw out two bags of make-up a couple of months ago.  I think I could perhaps do with one more pot to separate my face from eye brushes.  I would have preferred to have had the drawers without lids.  The drawers with the lid directly on top when stacked are slightly more difficult to open but wiggle out ok.

    It looks so nice. What a wonder organization can do. It always feels so nice when things aren't cluttered anymore. Such a great feeling. =)

    They make it a point to get to know their customers they keep track of people entering the facility which gives me peace of mind when it comes to storing something in the city.
