Make up & jewellery storage (Feat. Muji)




I spent a long time looking for the perfect storage! I needed something compact enough to fit into the small space that I had available on my desk, and something relatively easy to organise so that I can find what I need quickly in the mornings. Some people are happy to use a make up bag or chuck everything into a box, but I often forget what I have, and wanted to showcase everything to myself daily!

I discovered these boxes from Muji. They're lightweight and clear, making it easy to see instantly whats where. I must admit that there's not much space to layer up, but I think that adds to the simplicity and organisation. Anything I don't use often is stored in a tower of small Ikea boxes on the floor.  . 

Most of my make up brushes are stored in a cheap lined basket within a paper tray built into my desk, along with some bigger eyeshadow palettes. My most used make up brushes however, sit in a Ikea vase, as they otherwise have a tendancy to get lost amongst a sea of eye make up brushes.

On  top of the acrylic boxes sit a small finger washing bowl from Ikea, in which a small collection of my rings sit, and the rest of my jewellery and lipsticks/glosses are again stored in clear acrylic kitchen accessories from Ikea, stuck to the wall!


As you can see, I have filled the largest of the two drawer sets with make up, and the smaller with mainly jewellery. When I first ever bought these, everything looked incredibly neat and organised, but this has decreased with the increase of make up and earrings that I've managed to cram in. 



Small pendant necklaces are stored in boxes within the acrylic drawers, but bigger ones are hung from a cheap coat hook. 


I hope that this has helped if you've been looking for new ways to store your make up and jewellery, how are you currently storing yours?
