My Makeup Collection & Organization

IMG_6084

Today’s post is going to be all about organizing, more specifically makeup. I wanted to make sure I picked storage that would be with me for a really long time. I didn’t want to replace it every year or so. I also wanted it to look classy and functional and not be super expensive. I didn’t want it to break and never be able to afford replacing it. So here is what I ended up picking to store my makeup.

These are the Muji Acrylic Case 3 drawers. So as you can see I went for a clear drawer organizer. you can check them out HERE. They are a bit pricey, but they are really good quality. Overall I have had this for 4 month now and I am so glad that I switched from my old Walmart plastic containers. A small side note these do sell out fast I mean I stalked the website for two weeks before getting 3 set of these. I had to wait another week to get the other 3.

I know this acrylic drawer organizer is not for everyone. Like I said earlier in this post I wanted an investment piece to be able to keep for years and years to come. I’m sure you can look around and find other similar organizers. What is your current make up organization like?

    Right now my make-up is overflowing from inside of my make-up table. I have been thinking about getting something similar as you, but I also don’t want to have a whole wall of my bathroom dedicated to make-up storage. So I am still considering what I want to do. I don’t really want to keep it on my bedroom because I don’t want to add another piece of furniture to the mix.

      I totally understand when you say you don’t want a whole wall/space dedicated to make-up storage. I struggled with trying to have enough storage but not too much that it overwhelms my whole room. The more you think about what you want the better the outcome, at least that’s what happened with me.

    I have been wanting to buy acrylic containers for a while now, but as I’m in the process of room renovation I’ve decided to just wait and hold off until my room is complete. I was thinking of getting the iKea 9 drawer set as well. I don’t have all that makeup, but it could be storage for other things. I just love the look of acrylic drawers. I have yet to find one to my liking. Nice collection.

      Thanks! I also think the ikea Alex 9 drawer will be a good storage place for my others non-makeup things. I would agree with you on waiting until you have everything in your room the way you want. The acrylic drawers are pricey, and it’s better to be in love with them then to regret a purchase.
