This was requested a few times since i got my new makeup storage & i guess is a sortof peek at most of my makeup collection (some is still waiting to be stored away..eek)
Yay, i finally feel quite content with how i store my makeup. It’s now easy to find things & i don’t have to delve down to find certain colours etc. *satisfied*

[To some this may be a stupid amount of makeup..& to others a small collection..but to me it’s just right so no judging please.. :)]

Click to enlarge any pics for closer look

This is my makeup desk thing…it’s where i do my makeup :) It looks kinda higgledy piggledy..but i like it.

The Draws


Eyeshadows – Incl. Duo’s, Quads, Dazzle Dusts..etc etc.


The Silver Chest

This includes all my foundations, primers, some moisturisers & many fake tans on the left.

D.I.Y Ikea Draws

For all you observant peeps, you will notice i have covered these drawers in the same wallpaper that is on my wall in the first picture…It took me a flippin age. appreciate it! :)
In the drawer to the left i have mostly miscellanious drugstore lipsticks & in the right mostly Mac but other higher end lippies too.

This drawer houses my many concealers & a few eye creams

Left drawer is Mac shadows (To depot..or not to depot..that is the question?) & on the right is everything else eye related.

On top of the Ikea Drawers…

My brushes which are displayed in a sainsburys pencil holder (if you are wondering why i have randomly plonked black there, i actually have some black in the rest of my room as its cream/black)… & the silver mirrored drawers which house…

Bobbi Pins.. ♥

Small clear/black hair ties (perfect for the hair plait braid..£1 in primark) & your average brown hair tie.

My coloured hair clips :)

So ladies…that is my new storage system in place…& its working fabulously..especially the mirrored drawers as i never really had a system with my hair accessories before. Makes life a little easier & faster & i heart my new silver draws from Tkmaxx. Soo much room & i can see everything! The baskets are just on my other desk which isnt really that interesting as it’s just hair/body/face stuff in them. But if you are desperate to see those too i will post the pics up, just didnt think they’d be of much interest. :)

Also, one of my bestie’s started up a blog today after i persuaded her..mwaha
So you should go & follow her please, because i know its not nice to start a blog with nobody following you and you feel as if you’re talking to yourself haha.
And shes gorgeous & lovely too & i love her

Follow her HERE!

Thankyou lovelies.

    i've got to find me some of those drawer sets. they're so cute too!

  11. I have the same wooden drawer thingy! It use to be as organised as yours but now it houses make up I don't use as much….

    I've got three perspex stackable two drawer muji units now for my "essentials"…and there is STILL make up all over the place!

  12. Rachel

    Gorgeous storage, makes me really want to get organised, at the moment my make up is everywhere! x

  36. Edna

    Wow, you're so organized. I love your makeup collection :)

  37. I love your storage!! just to let you know, i tagged you. xx

  38. Great, I find it much easier with everything organised into their own drawers and easily accessible.

    Personally, I tend not to use palette e/s as much as singles, so depotting isn't really for me. I don't know why I do that? lol

    I'll be sure to click on your mates blog; I can relate to sometimes feeing like nobody is clicking on you and you are talking to yourself :)

  39. ahh, its so organised! i went to txmaxx and to have a looksee at their storage after your previous post and their stuff is absolutely ADORABLE. im definiately buying some come payday :)

  40. Imo

  41. oh my goddddddd i have never in my life seen so much makeup, i am actually sitting here in amazement!!!!

    I feel sick because my makeup collection fits neatly into one little bag… i need to go shopping hehe!!x

  42. Your drawers are SO cute! I love finding new ways to store my make-up, plus I find I use everything more if it's all laid out so that I can see it all! Check out my cheap and cheerful way of storing my brushes…

    Enjoy! x

  43. C

    You are so inspiring Zoe!! Love your blog so much.

    Your whole set-up and collection is so adorable and elegant. I hope this doesn't sound creepy, but whenever I'm having a disappointing day, I always visit your blog. It has such great energy! So lovely.


  44. I love this! I am constantly reorganising my makeup, I think i will have to invest in some good storage!
    Love your blog btw x

  45. I love the way you have stored your makeup! It looks really pretty! ♥

  46. Chloe

    Hey Zoe :)just wondering is your make-up bought over the years or just spontanious whims you have in the make-up stores ? :)


  47. M

    Hey Zoe! Love your organization! I am the same way with my makeup…I like it all hidden, but when I want to use it, I want to know where all of one item is so it makes choosing from them a whole lot easier!

    M, from

  48. Where is the mirror from? x

  49. I'm happy with my choice, and strongly recommend them to anyone who is looking for one. This storage place rocks! I only rented for a month and they were totally professional and accommodating.

  50. Management is receptive and helpful. I have been renting a unit here for almost a year, and am always happy with the friendliness of the staff and the cleanliness of the building. I like that every single experience I have had with them was a positive one.
