Álainn Customisable organiser, compatible with Ikea Alex drawers

There is something very satisfying looking at a drawer full of perfectly organised makeup! For a long time, I have found myself using the same few products, over and over again because I simply couldn’t see what I had in my drawers. My makeup storage situation was a disaster! They say out of frustration comes the best ideas. My frustration led to the first seeds of an idea last year, that has now grown into the launch of my first product. The Álainn customisable organiser. I wanted to create something that suited lots of different organisational needs. Instead of making a drawer organiser that had one set lay out, the…

Makeup Storage from HerClutterbox

With my makeup collection growing every week, I am constantly on the look out for new makeup storage. Unfortunetly space is something I have very quickly run out of. Our house is not very big, so all my makeup has to be kept in the one corner of our bedroom. Ok, I make it sound that my makeup is stored in one drawer, but I genuinely have no room left and was desperately seeking some storage that would hold a lot, but wouldn’t take up lots of space. Hello HerClutterBox!!! HerClutterBox recently sent me out the 4 drawer Pretty in Pink Clutterbox to fill full of loads of my bits and…

My makeup collection and makeup storage ideas

This post has been a very long time coming. For months I have threatened to record a video showing how I store my makeup.  I held off recording for a very long time as I felt the storage wasn’t exactly how I wanted it. Now, I have realised, that while it may not be perfect yet, it may still give you guys ideas on how to store your makeup. The vast majority of my makeup storage is very affordable and from Ikea. The desk is the Malm dressing table and cost €100. It has a pull out drawer with good space and comes with a glass top. The long drawer unit is the Alex…

EYESHADOW makeup storage

Make Up For Ever Magnetic palette

Before I begin this post, I need to put my hands up and admit to the fact that I have problem with it comes to buying eye shadow. You see the thing is, when you’re not suppose to be buying makeup, €10 for a Mac eyeshadow or €6 for an Inglot shadow, doesn’t really impact your bank balance all that much, but at the same time you get your little makeup buying fix. I will put it to you this way, I buy new eyeshadows for a night out, the way some people buy shoes!! I’m actually saving myself money if you really think about it. When it comes to…

Makeup storage and vanity table

Any of you that follow The Beautiful Truth on Facebook will know that for the past few weeks I have been obsessing about getting new storage for my makeup. I had rapidly run out of space for storing my makeup and hairdryers etc and I need a new solution. It was my boyfriend that suggested I think about a vanity unit. I latched onto the idea and took to Pinterest to get some inspiration. I am so excited to have this space. I absolutely love it. Not only is it great for putting on my makeup but also for taking blogging pictures. Instead of me rambling on I’ll let the…
