My makeup collection and makeup storage ideas

Screen Shot 2015-04-28 at 09.37.47This 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.

IMG_2576The 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 9 drawer unit. A holy grail item for many beauty bloggers. This also cost €100. The chair is called ingolf and cost €30. My mirror was the most expensive item and  the price depends on the exchange rate at the time. I got it for around the €280 mark the Hollywood collation from Illuminated mirrors.

There are so many to choose from on ebay but make sure you buy from a top rated seller. The white holder is actually an Ikea plant pot. It’s called the skurar and cost €2. I bought a few of these as they are really handy.

Enough of me waffling on. Why don’t you just take a look at the storage itself in the video below and let me know what you think?
