Recently I've noticed more makeup collection videos/posts popping up on both my bloglovin' dash and Youtube subscription. These are my favourite kind of posts and videos. Mainly because I am nosey & I like to see what people have, but I also like to get ideas of how to store different things.  I have a lot of beauty products, and even though we do have a 2 bed flat, we use the 2nd bedroom as a guest bedroom. So unlike a lucky few blogger friends of mine, I don't have a beauty/room dressing room. That being said I am very happy with my little set up in the corner in our bedroom. I don't have a dressing table but I do have the Malm 6 Chest of Drawers which do a perfect job of housing all my beauty supplies.

Just like every other beauty blogger, I have the white flower pots from ikea to hold my makeup brushes and various other beauty tools. The two smaller glasses were actually candles from poundland in a previous life! They are the perfect size for my hairclips and perfume samples. The two drawers at the top which are significantly shallower than the others. One houses a lot of samples which I seriously need to start using so I can revive my 'Project Samples' posts. In the other I store some base & eye products.  The lids from old Glossyboxes are the perfect height to fit in to section off the drawers which is so handy! I also have an old drawer from my unit I purchased from WHSmiths many moons ago thown in there too! When it comes to my other make-up products, these all live in one of the deeper drawers. Again old beauty boxes have come to the rescue to help organise it all. You can get drawer inserts from Ikea too, however as I had a lot of beauty boxes just lying around I thought I would put them to good use!

You wouldn't think it looking at the above photos, but I did try to organise my haircare and skincare products in these drawers, there are some beauty boxes hidden in there creating different sections. But because they are so deep, I can easily just throw everything into them with ease. I could spend time sorting them out but I'll be honest, it's just so much easier to have them in a jumbled mess and just fumble about each morning looking for the product I want. - This isn't me being sarcastic, I really think with this amount of products there is no point trying to make it pinterest worthy and all in a fancy order. Maybe with minimal products its possible but that isn't the case here!  The final drawer at the bottom just houses my hair appliances, so not very exciting, but it does the job! 

So there's a little peak at my beauty storage. Ikea is where all bloggers gravitate to for beauty storage it seems. With it being so affordable and always having some pretty nifty things there no wonder we choose it. I think everyone has the Alex drawers now? Is everyone over the clear acrylic drawers? Mine are shoved in the back of our wardrobe! haha. Ikea have brought out a new advert where they show how you can transform a small space with many of their storage solutions. I'll be honest, I got some ideas from it and want another Ikea trip to pick up some things! If you havent seen it yet, just click the video below and have a watch! 

What do you use for your beauty storage? If you've done a post or video, link it in the comments so I can be nosey! :-)

  14. Love this little sneak peak into your room. Ikea is amazing, wish I had space for more of their furniture. Look forward to seeing how you use the new bits you receive. That advert is so cool, when I first saw it it was a bit creepy but now it's just inspiring :)

  16. Lovely, I'd love to have one of the big stacks of drawers but my rooms just too small so I have to make do with my bed side table and three drawers in my dressing table... safe to say they're pretty much overflowing!

  27. It looks as though you have your storage sorted. I don't really have a lot of space for mine so I use a moroccan tea glass for brushes and mascara and keep the rest in the make up bag!

  28. Ikea is amazing for storage ideas. Looks like you have a really neat and organised system! I love the flower pots too, they are so gorgeous and handy :)

  29. I have the Micke Desk at £65 which is cheaper than the malm and has two separate pull out drawers. Winner. I can't have everything tucked away in big deep drawers - I need to see what i have otherwise it doesn't exist to me :-) I keep the main usage items on top in little matching square boxes of different sizes and the rest at my fingertips in the shallow drawers in front of me. 10 months living in a studio with most of my beauty stuff packed away drove me crazy! Now I have a proper setup.

  30. You have a make up collection and beauty storage to die for! I'm very envious! xo
