After reading the posts regarding makeup storage from Syen and Hanna, I was thinking it might be a good idea to share how I organize mine :). Well I don’t have an exclusive vanity area with makeup desk blablabla nor do I have makeup bag or train case. I store my vanity stuffs at my I-got-it-for-free-from-previous-tenant shelves :P. How’s that for being cheapskate? lol
Basically for my makeup, I organize them according to the type, i.e. lippies with lippies, foundations arranged together in a particular place etc. so that it would be easy for me to grab and find them. Nevertheless, because I’m using a small plastic rack, there are some stuffs that couldn’t fit there (the rack was barely filled up last year lol). I also use some unused containers to hold all of my stash. If you want to know how I organize them, click for more 😀 It’ll be quite a picture heavy post though, and bear in mind, I am not tidy. LOL. It’s a little messy, but believe me I can find the stuff I’m looking for in this mess 😀 Besides, I don’t own a lot of makeups so it’s a breeze to find anything I need 🙂
When I moved in to this room earlier on this year, I was given FIVE shelves! lol So I stacked two on the other three shelves, to give me more space in my little bedroom. Nearby my shelves, I hang my full-sized mirror close to the window. No chair whatsoever, I apply my makeup while standing up everyday :P.
This is where I store my lotions, hair brushes, haispray, wax and perfumes. I also have hand sanitizer ready because to me it’s a big NO-NO applying something on my face with unhygienic hands! My brush cleanser and eye lash curler are located here too.
Directly next to it is where I store all of my makeups. A little blurry, grrrrr. Next to it is where I put all of my brushes. You can see that I use a leaky plastic cup and a cut mineral water bottle to store my brushes 😛 Those with longer handles go to the plastic cup, whilst shorter ones go to the cut mineral water bottle.
Move on to the third drawer, is my lippies hehe. Lipbalms, lip liners, lipsticks and glosses, they all are here but my Estee Lauder clear gloss. For some weird reason if it is stored lying down, some of the product drips out -_-;. I stack my lippies so that I can put them all in one drawer.
Here’s the rest of the storage area looks like without my eyeshadows. All the foundations I have are on the left corner and primers are arranged nearby them. My bronzers and blushes which could not fit into the rack are stored on the right side nearby the rack itself. Concealers are arranged nearby foundations as I need them before/after applying foundation, depending on which foundation I use on that day 😛 My ELF glosses are there, together with my Vaseline.
That’s how I organized my little stash 😀 How do you organize yours? 😉
