New Makeup Storage

Makeup Storage
This has been a post which has been on my mental 'to write' list since I started university (oops). Although I only recently made my makeup drawer dividers, my makeup collection barely fit into them. They were also made to fit in my makeup drawer at home and not the drawers in my halls of residence so a new storage solution needed to be found! This proved a more difficult task than I anticipated with all decent-sized organisers I found being either incredibly ugly and tacky or else very expensive - £40 for a plastic box? Really?

However, I luckily came across this beautiful little multi drawer unit whilst browsing stationary in WHSmith on an unrelated shopping trip and couldn't possibly leave the store without it. At only £11.89, it is far cheaper than its acrylic counterparts and, as I'm sure you'll agree, much prettier too with its gorgeous butterfly and floral design. Although obviously intended for stationary, this unit is perfect for storing makeup, featuring 6 different drawers of various sizes. It has more than enough room for all my makeup yet takes up very little space due to the drawers being spread over 3 different levels, and it fits perfectly in the corner of my desk.

  1. It's so cute! I definitely need to rearrange my makeup. I'm getting a wire rack soon and I want to spray paint it white :)


  2. This is really pretty! What a lucky find!

  3. This is so cute! I use something similar but in a wooden version and they are just so handy and, I agree, much nicer than the acrylic counterparts! :)

  9. Tempted to jazz my current storage up with pretty paper of some sort
    but with this it's all done for you! Great find


  10. Such a gorgeous box! Good idea to use it for storing your make up!


  11. if only I had an actual desk.. there's a desk in my room but I actually use the bathroom lighting when I'm doing my makeup so I can't even use the desk coz it's facing the window. I get up so early that it's still dark outside when I do my makeup so using the desk would be pointless..


  12. This looks amazing! I really need to sort out some storage for my make-up. Danielle xx


  13. Great idea! Having dividers makes life a loooot easier ;)

  18. I really love your storage choice! Mine is all shoved in a basket at the moment! x

  19. This is prettier, cleaner looking and cheaper than the acrylic storage that I use. I never would have thought to look in WH Smith, but I might have to go and have a little root around!
