Beauty: Everyday makeup storage


My makeup products and accessories had previously been stored in various makeup bags with the obligatory pencil sharpenings and lonesome hair pins floating in the bottom. A few months ago I invested in the famous acrylic Muji draws after deciding some organisation was needed in my life.
I decided to opt for the wide two set draws, and purchased another single wide draw to sit ontop. When it comes to makeup I have the majority of my most used products out on display for easy access, keeping any extra bits I don’t really use in draws.
After moving house three times in the past few months, I have finally set up a makeup area in my room. In addition to the Muji draws I also purchased two pots to house my brushes, a matching one from Muji and a pretty cream one I spotted in Ikea. Whilst hitting up the sales I stumbled across the Glitter box in the Urban Outfitters sale, I wasn’t sure what I was going to use it for initially but for now I’ve found it useful for storing my Yankee Candle tarts and spare tealights.

Inkeeping with the acrylic theme, my mum returned home with a large jar from TK maxx which I’m currently using to display face cloths, but I’m thinking of switching it up and using it to store my cotton wool pads.      



     
 It’s amazing what a difference aesthetically pleasing storage can make to a room. I wonder how long it will take until I cave in and turn my whole desk into a muji draw makeup paradise?!
