Life: Make Up Storage

I’m sure this storage idea has been done many many times before but I thought I’d give you guys a peek into my main make up drawer!

I have used various beauty boxes for this as you can probably see! You can spot GlossyBox, She Said Beauty and Feel Unique here! I did originally have a JolieBox in there too but it was just that little bit too small to be accepted in here my my OCD haha!

The She Said Beauty Box has all of my false nail bits and bobs like glue, boxes of nails, nail wheels, etc which works nicely as the lip covers the contents up as I don’t feel false nails are particularly attractive looking when they’re not on nails so I try to keep them hidden. On top I have my Tangle Teezer and a box of Lancets which shouldn’t actually be in there…

The three GlossyBoxes along the back contain my lip products, mainly glosses and lipstick boxes, my face products like blush, bronzer, highlighters, that sort of thing and lastly my eye make up such as mascara, eyeliner, little eyeshadow, brow kits, you name it!  Along the bottom I have a less neat array of products. At the far end I have a little collection of foundations and BB creams and I also keep a couple of my special pieces of jewellery in this box. Moving along we have a huge Vaseline storage tin with a bunch of my lip balms in, I have so many they need their own tin! Haha! Next is a little tin box which contains the little Bedtime Bears that Eloise has in her bath and surrounded by the said tin are a little collection of lipsticks. Lastly we have a Feel Unique Box! I have taken the draw out and put it on top of the outside of the box to make a sort of cubby hole underneath the box which I keep my random brushes, Deodorant and other random bits in to keep out of the way then I have an array of skincare bits in the box on top. These are mostly from beauty box samples but there is an Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream and a tube of Kamillosan in there too.

So all that along with some random bits of paper, my Naked Palette and a couple of LUSH things is the contents of my main make up drawer! I have done one hell of a make up cull so this is pretty much all I use at the moment although I do have other make up that I don’t use, probably never will use but can’t bear to throw away too, please tell me I’m not the only one that does that!!
