Currently Loving : Alternative Makeup Storage.

Monday, 4 February 2013

With a few makeup storage posts popping up on my dashboard it got me thinking about my own collection. I currently house my makeup items in 2 sets of acrylic drawers and my haircare/skincare in old glossyboxes. But I'm just bored, bored of the acrylic storage and the plain glossyboxes and am thinking about switching it all up for something different. You know I am in the process of downsizing my collection so with that I'd like to completely refresh the way I store it all! I've been looking online at Amara and I've discovered a few gems that I thought were worth sharing with you guys. 


Firstly, how quirky are these Pantone tins, I thought they would be a great solution for my skincare or haircare items. I would probably need more than one with my current collection, but with 'keeping things hidden' in mind I thought they would be a cute addition to my bathroom. Rather than having everything spilling out of Glossyboxes! I thought they were a bit different to your usual storage options. I think the bright colours would work really well against the white canvas of my bathroom interior.

After seeing Sarahs post on how she stores her everyday essentials I've been looking out for a cute cake stand that could possibly house all mine! Sometimes It's nice to have your most loved or everyday products close to hand so a stand like this would be perfect on your bedside table. This Pip Studio one comes in three different colours but this was the most neutral style of the 3. Pip Studio do a whole range of floral Cath Kidston-esque goodies so if that's the sort of thing you are into I suggest you check them out.

Finally we come to what I think are my favourite choice out of the three and that is the Stelton Stackable storage. Firstly, they give that minimalistic kind of feel that acrylic storage does, but its all hidden away. I love how you can purchase different sized pots and stack them whatever way you find suitable! I do think these are actually to use in your kitchen (which of course you could do) but if you like minimal, discreet storage I think these are a really good idea! I'm actually so tempted to purchase a couple once I downsize my collection a little bit, and hopefully get a dressing table! The smaller pots would be perfect to hold kirby grips, or earrings as well. So it could double up as storage for some jewellery items really! Something a bit different isn't it!

What do you use to house your makeup collection? Are you part of the Acrylic posse, or have you broken from the 'norm' and decided to choose something different? Let me know in the comments, and if you have done a post on your collection, Link me!

Much Love
