Make-Up Storage


I've finally got around to decorating my room (not completely finished - but almost) so I thought I'd share with you my make-up storage and 'blogging area'.
I have a built in desk in the corner of my room that I painted white so it's easy to wipe clean then hung a vintage, slightly gothic mirror on the back wall. I'm right next to the window so I get natural light during the day and at night, I'm under the main light in my bedroom as well as having a lamp next to me and a light up mirror. On a whim, I brought myself a comfy white bar stool that was in the sale - definitely not a necessity but I think it was worth the money.
In terms of storage I picked up three of the Muji Wide 2 Drawer Acrylic Boxes that stack on top of each other and look scarily similar to the Glambox at just a third of the price. I also got given an acrylic lipstick/make-up organiser as a small birthday gift which I keep just next to these. For odd bits and bobs like lipbalm, large palettes I chuck them in a cute woven basket I picked up from the Range.
Once I've finally cleared up the shelf below that will be for body and hair products, nail varnishes and where I've been taking my blog photos lately.
Here's a close up view of the make-up storage for you, along with a snap of my choice of drink whilst typing away on the laptop - a healthy hot chocolate with whipped cream, mm!

Muji Storage Boxes - http://www.muji.eu/pages/online.asp?V=1&Sec=9&Sub=39&PID=2424
I had the boxes delivered and after processing delivery was quick and everything came well packaged, highly recommended! I think in total I paid around £35.00, including postage & packaging.
Lipstick/Cosmetic Organiser can be found on Amazon
Bar Stool/Lamp from The Range
Mirror from Boots, No.7

  2. Nice!! The Muji drawers do look really good, I'm afraid they are too small for me though :( My setup isn't exactly how I want it yet. Maybe I will do a before and after though!
    Great post!

    1. I'd love to see a before & after post! Shame Muji don't do slightly larger sizes for those that need a bit more space, maybe they will one day :) x

    1. I got mine delivered because I didn't realise they had stores dotted around, I think it was only around £4.50-£4.95 for delivery though and everything was so well packaged! I hope your organiser looks nice, they're so handy! x
