My Current Make-up Storage.

By | July 15, 2012

Happy Sunday ladies! How are you all? Hope you’ve had a good week. Mines been hectic as usual but things should be calming down real soon & you’ll be seeing a lot of me on here, Twitter, Instagram & Facebook – yipee!! This post is something which has been in the pipelines for AGES & the lighting wasn’t too great this evening for me to go swatch crazy so I thought I’d show you how I’m currently storing my disgusting amounts of makeup! It’s pretty self explanatory so I’ll let the pictures do most of the talking…

Muji 2 Acrylic Drawers (stacked) – £10.95 available from HERE.

Muji Acrylic Desk Pot (for my brushes) – £5.50 available from HERE.

I thought I’d add how I organise my jewellery in here too as it’s all in my vanity area. The ring holder is something which I made by hand with things I had at home. You can see a step-by-step DIY post HERE.

I try to use & recycle a lot of my old boxes/lids/pots from various things (perfume sets, candle holders, old jewellery holders etc.) to organise everything. I like everything to have a specific place! You don’t need to spend a lot of money on things to help you organise. However, I do love my Muji acrylic storage bits. I love that they’re clear & I can see exactly where things are.

How do you lovelies organise your things? If you have any tips/tricks please leave them below – I’d love to know!

P.S – Muji are releasing KARDASHIAN style wider & slighter bigger acrylic storage drawers which are going to be available in-store & online in August which I’m dying to get my hands on! It’s a 5 drawer unit for around £25 – a bargain if you ask me AND they’re limited edition too, eeek! Anyone else with putting that on their wishlist?

    Amazing storage! I have the same perspex boxes from Muji too but I only have 2 sets of the "2 box" ones. I was looking to buy another box but now that you've mentioned that they are coming out with a 5 drawer unit, I'll wait until August. Thanks for the heads up and great post as always!

    • Kaushal

      Yessss, totally wait!! I can’t wait to get my hands on them. They’re limited edition too!! x

  • Vicki

    I am currently drooling over your makeup storage & your makeup collection! Your acrylic draws are amazing. I need to invest in some better storage.

    • Kaushal

      I wish I had more faces to wear all the stuff on though!! LOL Muji is good & affordable stuff :)

  • Nic @Strawbry_Blonde

    Oh, love this post – love seeing how others store their makeup. I’ve been considering Muji storage for ages – only thing that puts me off is I usually apply makeup in my hallway as it has the best light :-/

    Not sure if I can resist the new Kardishan kit though – sounds ace!

    Thanks for sharing… loving your jewellery storage too :)

      Hi Nic :) I reckon the Kardashian style 5 drawers would be much better for us beauty junkies ;) No worries, I’m glad you liked it x

  • White Bazaar

    I love muji drawers, I store my make-up and brushes in the same ones! I already have some slim 5 drawer units I bought from Muji about 8 years ago which they don’t sell anymore, looks they are bringing out something similar, although it looks like the drawers are not as deep as Kim K ones. x

    • Kaushal

      I know, I’m gutted they’re not as deep but anything to make my storage more compact would be ideal for me! x

  • misseblog

    Love how you have it organised, amazing! xx

    • Kaushal

      Thank you, doll :)

  • Joanna

    Your storage is amazing and I look forward to the Kardashian Muji storage too! I wish there was a Muji close to me though. xx

    • Kaushal

      Oh I’m the same! I always have to order off of their website x

  • Anushka

    • Kaushal

  • Sherrie

    I LOVE posts like this! I love your set up, I love how you have your makeup in the acrylic units but also have products stored away so it’s not too much. I’m still undecided wether to invest in the acrylic storage unit. I know if I don’t I will regret it lol

    • Kaushal

      Aw, thanks hun! I’ll make sure I do updated storage posts from now on :) Ahhh, I love my acrylic storage because I can always tell where stuff is & can find stuff with ease :) x

    • Kaushal

      Hi, I use shade Santa Fe. I hope that helps!

  • Bianca

    Awesome storage! Quick question, does the MAC face and body, 120mL, fit in the muji 2 drawer? Thank you!

    • Kaushal

      Hi Bianca, I’m afraid it doesn’t :( which is why I keep all of my foundations on the top x
