Makeup Storage

Hey Guys,

So todays post is just a little bit about storage and where I keep all my makeup, nail polish and other goodies. I recently purchased a small shabby chic style set of drawers to store some of my makeup and I love it so much. I have it sitting on another set of drawers and it is so cute :)



Above is my lovely new purchase which I found on eBay for around £20. I was then having a lookie on some of my favourite shabby chic sites and found the exact same item here for only £14.95!

I'm not really sure where the other item is from, if I remember correctly I got it as part of a Chrismtas present a few years back. Anyway, it's really handy for storing my makeup brushes, nail files etc and keeps all of my goodies in one place!





I have had this set of drawers for a couple years now, I believe it was from IKEA? (Not to sure!) It came as just a simple wooden box and I decided to paint it the same colours as my bedroom. It is a wonderful size to store all my makeup and things but keep them all separate at the same time. As you can see I have all my eye products and my lip products in separate drawers :) Some of the other drawers contain jewellery, other basic makeup items and even some stationary.



Finally, my nail polish. I keep all of my products together in a nice pink box that came with a perfume gift set. These boxes always come in handy and you should never throw them away... you will eventually find a use for them! So anyway, I store all of my nail polishes in this box along with some cotton balls and swabs which I use when I am removing nail polish.

All of these are positioned in my wee makeup corner of my bedroom. I unfortunately don't have a lovely dresser to sit at whilst I put on my face so I just have to kneel on my lovely fluffy cushions on the floor and I'm sorted :)

Do you have any handy storage tips? Where do you buy your items?

Enjoy,
GEM x
