After I bought my new storage system months ago, I had intended to write a post showing all my makeup looking nice and neat and organised. Unfortunately, it's taken me until last weekend to actually make it look (vaguely) organised. Although it's overdue, I thought it might still be quite interesting to share. Apologies in advance as I suspect this will be picture heavy.
My makeup is currently stored in one of three places: a drawer unit in my wardrobe, my beauty box or the makeup bag in my handbag.
Here's the the drawer unit:
Up until last weekend, the state of the drawers was pretty horrific. Nothing was particularly ordered apart from the fact that the top two drawers contained makeup, the third drawer down contained nail polish and the bottom drawer had various skin and hair care. It's still in this order but I decided to try and sort out the makeup drawers to make it easier to find things as and when I want to use them. This is how it looks now. I found a new use for my Zuneta boxes as you may see!
I still keep quite a bit of makeup in my beauty box. You can see how much my collection has grown since my very first blog post where I shared my then new traincase!
Lastly I have a few bits and pieces in my little makeup bag. This gets changed around quite a lot but usually contains at least one concealer. You can probably see how obsessed I am with them as I'm currently carrying around three!
I still want to find some more containers or organisers for my storage drawers but sorting things out in there has made it much faster to pick things out when I put my makeup on in the morning. I'm also toying with idea of a brush roll or similar to store my brushes as they're beginning to outgrow the vase I have been storing them in.
I hope you enjoyed a little nosy into my stash. Feel free to ask questions about anything you spotted that I might have omitted to post about. I'd also love to hear about your makeup storage and any handy containers or organising systems that you might have found. If you have a recommendation for a good brush roll I'd be very interested too.
