Happy Friday, friends! Today I wanted to share a look into how I store and organize my beauty products. If you are familiar with the online beauty community, it will be no surprise as to what storage units I use, because they’ve become so popular around the internet..and for good reason! I used my Christmas money to invest in these items and it makes doing my makeup so much easier now that everything is actually organized and easily seen!
Primers, Concealers, Foundations, + Powders:
Blushes + Lip Products:
Brow Products, Eyeliners, Mascaras, Highlighters + Bronzers
Eyeshadows + Lashes:
Before sorting things out, everything was kind of everywhere. haha! I felt like I was always using the same old thing because it was hard to see what I actually had. I’m very thankful to be able to receive products from companies to try out and review as well as being a part of e.l.f.’s Beauty Squad – I do love me some new products! And now it’s so much easier doing my makeup routine with everything in its right place!
The very popular Alex drawer unit from Ikea has become a life saver! I ended up getting it on sale (score!) and I LOVE it! It is available in several options. I got the unit that has 5 drawers. The top 2 are more shallow and the bottom 3 are nice and deep. They also have a table top available which fits perfectly on top when you place two drawer units on the sides. The other model that is available has 9 drawers. You may think that these look like just some boring drawers. But they really are a makeup lover’s dream- they’re so well made, have sturdy drawer stoppers, and are just the perfect unit for makeup storage!
For inside the drawers I went with the organizers from The Container Store. I purchased three of the small Linus bins and one of the large ones. I also got two of the 3-section trays. These clear organizers fit perfectly inside the drawers. I also already had these two gold vanity organizers from Target (here and here) and use these inside the drawers as well! For on top of the unit I bought two of these white tin candle holders from Ikea to put my brushes in. And I also got this 24-Section Lipstick holder also from the Container Store.
My storage system is nothing fancy, but it works like a charm! You can check below for the organizers I use, as well as some of my current favorite makeup items! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend – it’s been in the 60’s and 70’s here and I sure hope it stays that way! xo.
