Show me your make up storage please

I appear to have far too much make up and not enough face, clearing through everything I've downsized though I think I could probably still set up my own version of SpaceNK!

I use empty candle holders for my brushes but need something organised that looks neat and aesthetically pleasing for eye shadows, lipsticks powders etc. Or something that can be put in a drawer.

The acrylic drawers, compartments look do you store your make up and if you wouldn't mind sharing a picture that would be great too.

Thank you

I haven't got a pic but I got a lovely grey wooden letter rack from B&M for £5 that I use for most of mine - tall things stand in the top part and flat things go in the drawer. Then I've got a pretty (and again dirt cheap) glass jar beside it for brushes, pencils etc.

I've got five dressing table drawers, a large vanity case and a set of small plastic drawers for all my products blush

I have a few of these from T K Maxx.

Susan, I recently had a make-up clearout and tidy-up.
I bought a cutlery tray and put it in a dressing table drawer to organise everything, and it's good for keeping the same sorts of items together.

I found a stationary drawer liner from Staples. Its a bit like a cutlery drawer but with more compartments. It's made by The really useful box company, or something like that. It costs about £2.50, got a couple for my daughter for hair bobbles and lip gloss, and one for all her little Lego bits and pieces. Great stuff! Like the idea of the letter rack from B&M though, might look out for one of those 😋

I've got this from ikea it fits in a drawer then I have brushes, hair bobbles etc in baskets on top of the drawers.

I use a plastic over door shoe organiser in my wardrobe.

Mines under the bed in all sorts of trays and make up bags.
DD is the makeup queen though, and is very organised. Forget where she gets her drawers from, but can ask when she comes home.

I have a random mix of : wooden cutlery tray, Godmorgan (clear perspex) from Ikea and some chunky tumblers for brushes/pencils.

Mines a bit messy and kinda just thrown in

Icecreamsundaes Sun 31-Jul-16 20:49:06

^^posted too soon, meant to say it's been thrown in until I get a vanity. Top is boxes with hair bobbles/clips etc, next box has my daily make up so I can grab it and bring it down if I need to stay with kids, empty Yankee holder for cotton pads, candle holder with rice in for brushes, hair sprays and serums to side, white drawers with nail stuff in one and body lotions in other, face stuff in wicker basket below with perfume in front, to the right acrylic holder with make up (eyes, lips and cheek, face, accessories, face samples from borchbox and glossy box. Pallets on top but will be getting a letter holder.

I realised watching YouTube make up organisations vids that I dont actually own very much!

I have the muji acrylic organisers, they're fab

CointreauVersial Sun 31-Jul-16 22:12:20

Here's my drawer. Fab insert from Clas Ohlsen (the compartments are much deeper than a cutlery tray.

Lippy in one section, mascaras/pencils in another, eyeshadow in another, then pallettes/odds and ends tucked at the side and back.

Nail varnish is in a huge tin elsewhere (I have tons!)

Mine is similar to silver's and also from Muji

Thank you, I've ordered some acrylic muji drawers and lipstick holder. I don't really wear that much makeup I have no idea why I have so much of it, however as soon as I have a big clear out the week after I'll want something I ditched!

I have the Alex 6 drawer from IKEA, filled with a combination of inserts, take away tubs (I dream of one day having it filled with muji inserts). It holds all my make up, hair and nail stuff, travel bits and hairdryers etc.

I use a metal garden trug this design but in a grey/green colour. I stand up all the brushes in narrow glass inside and just arrange the other stuff in order. It is quite decorative.

FatimaLovesBread Tue 02-Aug-16 19:47:37

The muji ones are good. These are mine...

I've got 2x deep 2 drawers plus one deep flip top single drawer. Also three square pots for brushes etc.

Also have a 2 drawer one for nail varnish and the 3 drawer not as deep one for jewellery
