Thursday's beauty post: organizing makeup



When I moved into our new apartment I realised that especially the bathroom had very little storage space and we were also very limited on what we could build in ourselves. I like my makeup more or less organized and accessible that's why we had to improvise a little bit. I'll show you the CD tower we use for a girlier purpose in another post but today I wanted to show you how I organize my nail polishes. I think Ikea discontinued these wooden drawer boxes I've had for a couple of years now and didn't want to throw away.

Right now I'm trying to find all the nail polishes that used to be randomly scattered around the house and put them in the designated drawers.

How do you organize your makeup?

I bought an adorable train case from Target two years ago and my makeup has been residing in it ever since. It has 6 retractable compartments which I assigned respectively to:
- eye shadows
- eye pencils/kajals/liners
- mascaras and eyebrow set
- blush
- lipgloss/lipstick (though the ones I use most take permanent residence in the makeup case I keep in my handbag)
- primers

I keep brushes in the brush holders on both sides and use the large compartment at the bottom for the largest brushes, bottles, compacts (foundation, bronzers, etc).

I don't have as many nail polish bottles as you do, so keep mine in a colorful plastic box. But I love the idea of a small drawer chest like the one above!
