The time has come - it's finally time to share my makeup collection and storage! I've been asked countless times whether I would do this post or not, but until recently I just wasn't happy with my set-up. For Christmas I got the Ikea Alex 6-Drawer, so because of that I've been able to set up my make-up in the way I've wanted to for so long.
You might as well get yourself something to drink - it's a long 'un! I've also included clickable links to everything I mention in terms of storage. Let's dive in!
On top of my drawers is where I store the majority of my lipsticks and lipglosses.
The larger holder above where my MAC lipsticks are is also from Homestore and More, and houses my lipglosses and lip pencils too! I also have a Michael Kors lipstick, a mini Victoria's Secret spray and my Elizabeth and James rollerball perfume there. You can get the larger holder here.
At the back you can see my foundations, concealers and primers. I store those in different sized drawer organisers from Homestore and More.
I have a lot of foundations in this drawer, however the Chanel and NARS are there just to remind me to re-purchase those two! I have a few summer foundations in there too on the left. I've also reviewed the bulk of these foundations so be sure to check them out if you're interested!
here. In here I have concealers from MAC, Chanel, Kat Von D, Mememe, Collection and some other drugstore brands. I'm quite loyal when it comes to concealers so this drawer only tends to get larger when I get sent concealers to review - I rarely buy them!
I keep my primers, BB creams and tinted moisturisers in this drawer organiser which is a size up from the one above. It's not really ideal for storing these types of product but it fits well in my drawer! This is the middle size and is €2.99, click here to see it! I had originally bought this size to hold my eye pencils because the Chanel and other high-end pencils tend to be quite long, but they didn't look right in it so I just settled on putting the primers and BB creams in here!
On the left side I have more lipsticks and lipglosses that my other storage unit couldn't hold, as well as lots of lip balms. I also have my Maybelline Baby Lips in the back but you can't see them! I have some liquid lipsticks from Too Faced, some EOS lip balms and lots of mini lipsticks from Sephora up the front.
The right side is lots of blushes and bronzers that I couldn't fit in the above drawer. I have some bits and bobs from NARS, W7, Sephora and Benefit in here!
I store them in the smaller size of the Linus drawer organisers, which are the perfect size for them.
In these containers you'll find W7, Covergirl, Dior, YSL, Maybelline and Rimmel mascara offerings.
So finally we have come to the end of my makeup collection and storage post! I really hope you enjoyed and maybe got some ideas from it!
