My new makeup storage!

by on April 27, 2017 · 17 comments

After posting about how I end up forgetting about the beauty stuff I have, I took on board some ideas from the comments and bought this cute storage box for my makeup. I wanted something that I can keep on my desk so it’s always in front of me and this is perfect. It’s also got a vintage feel with the rose print, pink ribbon and green combo.

As I don’t have much makeup this should accommodate my expansion plans and it’s deep enough for brushes and eyeliners. I got this from WH Smith (in store) for £9.99 marked down from £19.99 so it was a real bargain. I’m also going to take a leaf out of Tamara’s book (Beauty Thesis) and go through my stuff on a regular basis so that everything gets used. I found more bits I haven’t been using yesterday so now I’ve got even more stuff to review…not that I’m complaining.So what do you think of my new storage solution?

    Ahh this is gorgeous! I’ve seen this in WH Smith myself! I have a black & white Laura Ashley one from there – I think these type of boxes are perfect for storing makeup…can also keep a close eye on what I’m using/not using!

    I’m loving this cute box! I think I need something like this too – currently have a very messy drawer! xx

    I love this box, this is so cute, I love the colors I can’t wait to see all the stuff you have inside it !

    Agree with everyone else – very cute indeed

    My make up is all over the place (my handbag, make up bag, in lounge, bedroom, bathroom, even kitchen! *shudder*), need to sort it out (well, I need to get organised first).

    YAY, it’s a prettier verson of what I’ve got. I just used the box a whole heap of Sanctuary goodies came in at Xmas, useful but not as pretty.

    Your new make-up storage looks cute, so much better than my boring Sterilite 3-drawers

    Really pretty, i have seen these in WH smith too. I love to keep everything neat as its easier to find things that way. I keep sorting through my products and clearing out as sometimes you can have too much choice xx

    @Kizzy @LeanneOCD @Sarah @Beki @Pinkty @MissA @SultryRed @Ashley @Nicoletta Aww thanks everyone for your comments. I know my makeup collection is teeny tiny compared to all of yours but I’m trying to catch up!

    Those Whsmith drawers are so cute! I always look at them in store – the fact that they’re made of cardboard puts me off a bit, but now that Ikea have discontinued their wooden drawers I just have to get one. I love the floral design you’ve brought x

    It’s so pretty! Love this kind of posts as well….. How’s the planning going?

    @P&L – I used to have those Ikea wooden drawers too. I know what you mean about it being cardboard but it’s quite sturdy. I think it would only be a problem if you have tons of stuff then it may start to sag a bit.
    @Adriana – I still have to select the music and vows for the USA one, mom has sorted the invitations. I have to sort the invitations for the UK one, and our vows. I expect everything to be done by the end of May. Remind me of what I’ve said at the end of the month! Not long now for you?

    I love the idea, so i think i’ll do the same, it looks so nice and really organised. Please can you post whats inside each draws ( or some kind of make up collection thing.)

    Hello MJ – just seen your request I’m going to have a clear out this week as I have some old stuff in there that needs binning but when I’m done I’ll post it! xoxo
