Not so long ago I began to find my little makeup bag beginning to bust at the seams as my collection has grown & grown!… so off I went in the search of the perfect storage solution. Now I do have a penchant for pretty makeup bags BUT after watching an episode of the Kardashian’s where they pictured some gorgeous clear makeup storage towers with drawers I have to say I fell in love! But… after some googling I found the price tag just wasn’t appealing not to mention a little scary! L
So here is what I settled on

Here is my great (not so little) organiser from IKEA which has a compartment for all my essentials and most importantly cheap as chips (I’m sure I paid under $20 for it)! Also, at my towering height all 5 feet of me what I love most about this storage box is that I keep it on top of the washing machine in the bathroom so that I can see everything all at once so nothing gets lost or overlooked.

But I would still love one of these! (wouldn’t we all?!)

How do you store your makeup?


  1. I would love one of those 2. I actually have a makeup case, as of now its great,but when I get my vanity I would like something that has everything right out in the open =).

    Thanks for following me on twitter, so glad I checked out your blog. Really cute. Please come check myne out if you havent-I would love to hear from you.


  2. Love your storage idea.. My make up is in a bit of a mess at the moment.. Im always in between mine and my boyfriends house..

    The clear draws and nail polish stand do look really pretty.. However, what you got from ikea is just as neat and practical :)

  3. Such a smart idea, hey! Oh those Kardashians... what will they think of next!
    BTW- is that NARS compact Orgasm??

  4. wow - you're so neat with your storage, it puts my mishappened one to shame :(

  5. Please sort out my make up stash! At the moment its all over the bathroom counter, hehehehe

  6. @Nettiema thank u! i'm following you now too! lovely having a new friend :o)

    @Beauty Soiree it's funny as my makeup is the only place I am neat and tidy - maybe even a little OCD!! hehe
