Hello lovelies, today I wanted to talk to you about how I store my makeup. I am definitely no pro mua but I do love makeup and trying out new looks. Because I am fairly new to the world of makeup I haven’t got a huge collection like I have seen on other blogs or YouTube videos but I do have a small collection which I hope I can grow over time. I like to be quite minimalistic with my makeup and how I store it because I don’t like to have lots of clutter.
On the left hand side of my desk there are two little jars, these are used to store any random bits and bobs that I use regularly like my tea tree oil and tweezers. I love how these look either side of my light which I got as a birthday present last year which I also think looks really cute when it’s all lit up! The rose gold colour of the jars is what thing I love most about them, but also the way they are both shaped I think makes them look more unique and individual. I believe that they were sold to be used for tealight candles but I thought they would be perfect to sit on my desk for smaller bits and pieces that need a home!
In the middle of my desk is where my brushes live, most of which are real techniques but there are also some makeup revolution and Avon brushes hiding in there somewhere! I thought the colour and design of this pot was lovely and all of my makeup brushes fit in perfectly. I received this pot in my stocking at Christmas, as before I was keeping my brushes in their original cases, now it’s much easier to reach for them when I am doing my makeup because they are all in one place.
Next on my desk are my acrylic drawers, I bought this from Primark and they were a really good price (around £4). I had seen some online that looked pretty much identical for double the price, so I was glad I found them! I keep some of my palettes and a few individual items in here because it helps to keep my desk tidy. By having these drawers it has made it easier for me to find things that would normally be in a makeup bag that I would have to dig through to find! They are also quite a decent size so I am able to fit a few things into them like hair bands and grips as well as beauty products.
The last piece of storage on my desk is another acrylic tray that I also bought from Primark for around the same price. This tray has five different sections to it so it gives you a variety of different spaces to fit various items. At the back of this tray I have my eyeliner’s and mascaras, next to that I keep my concealers and eye primers as it is the deepest section of the tray and alongside this I keep my makeup sponges. To the right I keep the lipsticks that I use the most (the others are in a makeup bag) as i think this is the perfect place to store them and it looks really cute! The last section is where my foundation, eyebrow gels and lip balm live. I really love how this tray looks when it’s all filled up, I think it makes the area look neat because it allows me to have all of my things in one place and on show.
The rest of my collection is kept one of my desk drawers, in here is the makeup that I don’t use very often so I don’t feel the need to have it out on top of my desk. I do also have a pot which i use to store my liquid lipsticks in but i haven’t got a photo of it as it’s on a different shelf in my bedroom!
