Five Ways To Organise & Display Makeup...

If you follow me on Instagram then you might've seen that I gave my bedroom a little switch up a few weeks ago. I decided to sell my chest of drawers as I had hardly anything in them and even though they fit into the space nicely and looked well, they just weren't very practical so I got a desk that I could study at instead. 

I'm very lucky to have a good wardrobe space so all of my clothes including pyjamas fit in there so the main thing that was in my drawers was my makeup collection. Obviously, I had to rehome my products and I decided to streamline my collection a little bit too so now it all fits in my vanity drawers as well as on my new makeup shelfie. And for today's post, I wanted to share some photos of my new setup as well as five makeup storage ideas...

1. A Makeup Shelfie:
I've always admired ladder shelves on Pinterest and Instagram but shelving units can be quite expensive so when I saw this one from Argos, which was reasonably priced, my ladder shelf dreams came true! I've loved styling it and I feel like the end result represents my personality and it's so nice to have a place to display some of my favourite things. As well as being aesthetically pleasing, it's also functional as it holds the bulk of my makeup collection and my jewellery box too.

2. Acrylic Organisers:
I had a set of acrylic organisers a few years ago but they were quite small so they couldn't hold much, and ever since I've been on the hunt for the perfect set! I finally found some in Penneys which are exactly what I was looking for and they were so affordable too. It's a two-tier drawer similar to the popular Muji drawers and here I store single eyeshadows and small eyeshadow palettes/ quads in the bottom drawer and in the top drawer I have most of my lipsticks except for my Nars lip pencil collection and my tinted lip balms/ lip glosses which all live in pots on my vanity table.

3. Cups And Old Candle Jars:
Cute cups from the likes of Sostrene Grene, Ikea, Anthropologie or Penneys are so handy for storing things like mascaras, eyeshadow sticks, lip glosses, eyebrow pencils etc. But an even better way to store these products is recycling old candle jars - much more economical as you don't have to pay for new jars/cups and better for the environment too. Most candle jars are too pretty to throw out anyway!

4. Baskets:
On the bottom shelf of the ladder shelving unit, I have two sets of baskets that hold all of my palettes. Finding a good storage solution for my palettes was definitely the trickiest as they don't fit in my vanity table drawers or in acrylic organisers and I wasn't sure whether they would all fit in the baskets; But luckily they just about squeeze in! I have a bigger gold basket that I got in Penneys a few years ago for my larger sized palettes and I picked up the smaller pink basket in there recently for the medium / smaller palettes. I also got a few small white plastic baskets from Home Store & More to organise my blushers, bronzers, highlighters and setting powders within the big drawer of my vanity. 

5. Display Products On A Vanity / Chest Of Drawers:
I love having lots of my favourite products out on display and I keep most of the products that I display in the jars like I mentioned but I also have my Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Filter as well as two of my favourite hair products which have pretty pink packaging as they're just too pretty to be hidden away in drawers! One of my favourite features on my vanity table is the Ikea glass dome which I use to display my Jo Malone perfumes which are obviously a luxury treat and very special so I think they deserve to be displayed nicely *insert the monkey with his hands over his mouth emoji* 

What do you use to store your makeup?
