My Makeup Storage

I have previously showed you my GODMORGON box (see blog post here) from IKEA that has 10 compartments and is a perfect organizer for makeup. In this box I store my favourite makeup products that I reach for the most as well as some essential makeup items like my eyelash curler and lash adhesive etc. In the 12 piece compartment I like to store my favourite lipsticks at the moment that change depending on the season. At the moment I mainly have dark and autumn lippies in that compartment.

From IKEA I use the white ALEX Drawer Unit with 9 drawers to store the rest of my makeup. I find this drawer to be the perfect size for storing makeup and beauty products .At the top of the drawer I keep my favourite perfumes and my Morphe Brush set with some of my favourite face and eye brushes. I also store my bigger eyeshadow palettes in a plastic napkin holder from IKEA.  In each drawer I’ve placed transparent drawers with five compartments, to protect the wooden drawer from makeup stains.

  1. I use this one http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/40216357/ for make up; then I’ve another plastic holder in the bathroom, with the things which I use more often. For the brushes I use a cylinder-shaped holder home made by my mum; she covered two holders with passementerie and now I use one of them for the eye pencils and the other one for some brushes. All other brushes are in a box…do you know those beauty boxes you receive every month? Once I subscribed to a beauty box program and I use these boxes for storing brushes and new products, maybe something I bought because it was on offer but I have to finish something else before. Next time I go to Ikea I’d like to have a look at this one: http://www.ikea.com/it/it/catalog/products/20186101/ because I think it can be more useful for brushes. My holder are not too high, so I have to put a lot of brushes inside otherwise it’s not stable because almost all the brushes are quite long.

    1. That drawer looks great for makeup and beauty products and saving the beauty boxes is a suuper great idea! You should do a blog post showing your makeup storage too! Would love to see and get some more ideas. Thanks for sharing xx

  2. So envious! And can’t be Scandinavian without having some Ikea storage 😉 I’ve been wanting those Alex drawers, they just seem so perfect for storing makeup!

  3. Absolutely gorgeous Nicole… super organised huni and what a great idea with the Napkin holder!! Will have to invest in a few of these goodies – fab post, very inspiration! Ikea is such a haven for us cosmetic cravers 😀 Karen XXXX

  4. I love this post. I don’t have a great system for storing my makeup and it’s piling up. I’m definitely going to use this post as inspiration to sort out my makeup!

  6. I also use the Alex 9 drawer! I love it! I wonder if IKEA knew people would use it for beauty stuff this much, ha-ha, because I see a lot of makeup gurus use them too.

    Love your blog!
