Updated Make Up Storage!

Hello everyone, my name is Char and I have been a terrible blogger this month! I am back and this time I am getting well and truly back on the blogging train with some serious dedication! Thank you to those of you that have stuck by me and hello to my new followers! Now, onto the post! 
Who wants to see my updated make up storage?
 I did a make up storage post, weirdly, a year ago today. If you want to see that you can just click on this lovely link here! please excuse the pictures and layout, I was fairly new. Today I decided to show you lovely lot my new(ish) make up storage. I keep all my make up in the classic Helmer drawer set from Ikea (Link!) which is the pretty affordable price of £25. It comes with a set of four wheels however I didn't attach them on mine so its more stable on my floor, just a suggestion. On top of my drawer I keep all my make up brushes in the ever so useful sigma brush case, one side contains all my face brushes and the other has all my eye and lip brushes. I like to keep my setting spray and the foundation I am currently using on top too just for ease of reaching whilst putting my face on in the morning. My eyeshadow pallets are also kept on top for the sole reason that there is no where else for them to go!
The Helmer contains six drawers each with their own label holder so you can specify what is in each drawer for ease of finding. I have dedicated each drawer to a different selection of products so the top drawer contains all my face products like powders, foundations, bronzers, highlighters and blushes.  The second drawer is used for all my eye products, single and quad eyeshadows, mascaras, and eye liners. The third drawer stores all the lip products including lipsticks, glosses, stains and a decent selection of balms. Drawers four and five contain my hair products and some miscellaneous things like disinfectant wipes for my make up table, brush wipes, cotton buds and make up sponges. The sixth and final drawer is where I keep my entire nail varnish which I did a post on recently and you can see in more detail here! 
So that was a little overview of where I keep my make up collection, I'm thinking about doing an updated make up collection post soon if anyone is interested!


  1. I love this idea. I have the muji drawers, but they look such a mess if you get makeup smudges or fingerprints on them!

  2. Ooooo I love how neat and tidy everything is. My makeup section of my bedroom is just awful. I have a wicker box thing for hair and one for makeup, then my 'misc' and nail stuff is all shoved in a drawer. Seriously, it's all soooo messy.
    I bought some gorgeous nail varnishes today but I'm running out of room in my drawer agghhh!! xxx

  3. Great organization! I have drawers and drawers of products, too! I need to do an update storage post, I have added so many more things since I did mine last year.
    Hope you're doing well!
