A while back I was tweeting with Kim from What Kimmi Did Next about make up storage. She had put up her Mission to Organise post, which I really enjoyed reading! I'm slightly on the messy (ok, very messy) side as well, but I have got a storage tip I want to share with you all!
Kim if you're reading this you may remember us tweeting about it!
If you're trying to organise your make up, the best place to start is stationery suppliers. Make up is a similar size to stationery and stationery suppliers sell storage at pretty cheap prices. You can get some pretty girlie stuff as well, so it isn't all boring office things!
I got this little desk organiser from WH Smiths. It was on sale at the time and I'm pretty sure it cost no more than a fiver! Not bad considering it allows you to store all your make up in one neat and tidy area on your dressing table, vanity or bathroom!
As you can see, it holds plenty of make up! In the back I'm using one section for face brushes, one section for eye brushes and another section for pallets. Then in the middle bit I've got bronzers, blushers, highlighters, foundation, mascara and eyeliners. Then in the front I keep concealers, setting powder, lipstick, lip gloss and pigments.
This has practically all I need to put my face together in the mornings in one neat little area. Love the fact that it's a girlie pink colour as well!
Here's the desktop organiser empty. It's only little, but one desk organiser can hold so much make up!
So if you are trying to organise your make up collection, definitely have a look in your local stationery shop, it's a really cheap way to find some really good storage!
Hope you've enjoyed this post. After the bbloggers chat on Twitter on Sunday evening, I have really tired to improve my pictures for you guys, and made them a lot bigger, as suggested by Sophia from Tatooed Tea Lady. I hope you like them. Let me know what you think!
