Hello everyone! A while ago I finally decided to organize my vanity and all my makeup. Before I did so, everything was just all over the place and so disorganized. I’ve been starting to get a lot more makeup due to the fact that companies have been sending me some really amazing stuff.
So don’t worry, I don’t actually buy this much makeup! Most of what’s here was either sent to me, gifted to me or from my makeup spree in Malaysia. But anyway, I thought I would do a post on how I store my makeup and write about these really cool storage systems that I’ve been loving lately.
PS: I’m so sorry about the photos, I think it’s got a really orange tone due to the fact that I had candles lit up around my room at the time and the natural lighting wasn’t too great. I’m not 100% happy or done with my makeup storage and the way my vanity looks but I thought I would show you anyway!
My vanity is actually just a 4×4 white ikea shelving system that I put on top of a few glass bricks to make the height perfect for me, there’s also a mirror that is drilled onto the wall right above the table.
This is my lipstick carousel that I got a few weeks ago and I’ve been absolutely loving it. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know that I’ve been absolutely obsessing over lippies lately and although it’s not full yet, I’ve got quite a bit of a collection going on.
One thing that I really love about this is the fact that it spins around! I’m such a little kid and I love the way that I feel every time I go on to decide what my #LOTD will be. It’s like I’m in a little candy shop.
On the top of the lipstick carousel I just like to keep all my lip glosses or lip chubby sticks that are too long to fit in the lipstick slots. Not gonna lie, this is probably my favourite part of my vanity. If you’re interested in where I got it from, I’ll link all the details down below at the end of the post!
I actually don’t have that many brushes, but I like to keep all my face brushes in that little glass storage system to the right. It came with a lot of little gold beads that you can put at the bottom so that the brushes stand up straight which I thought was absolutely adorable. I also have a little candle holder from ikea to the left that I like to store all my eye brushes in.
I like to have a little storage system in the middle of my table just to store the makeup that I’ll be using more often. To be honest, I don’t really like the way it looks but I’m not too sure where I’m going to position everything yet so I’ll keep you all updated. But personally, I think it makes my makeup table look very cluttered.
If you want a more detailed post, just let me know! I just don’t want to go in to too much detail as this post would take absolutely ages!
To the left is just a little pot plant container thing from IKEA that has my eyelash curlers, eyeshadow primers and eyebrow gels. I was gifted this storage solution by my sister a few years ago and it was the first thing on my vanity.
