A few days ago I finally went ahead and sorted out my makeup/beauty collection and ordered it all to suit my new storage. As you may or may not know I decided that it was about time I redecorated my bedroom and decided to buy some new furniture. For my makeup storage I decided to get the Ikea Alex  9 Drawer unit. I've had my eye onit for years but I felt like it was as good as time as any to invest in some. At £85 each they don't come cheap but I really cannot fault them. They are a good size and I like how I can have everything displayed clearly so I don't have to rummage around in boxes trying to find the one eyeshadow I want!

  25. Lily this is gorgeous! I've been wanting these for ages but I have an attic room and it's too tall for my roof unless I move my room around again! They look so chic and you've definitely organised it really cute!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Wow, gorgeous set up for storing your makeup! I need to find time (hopefully in the summer when I've got a break from uni) to sort out my collection into some better way of storing it (rather than the boxes I've got now and my makeup bag on my dressing table for my daily products!)
