Makeup Storage

Ok, this is sort of embarrassing. Someone asked about makeup storage tips on the giveaway. So, this is how I store mine. Also, I have mentioned before that I subscribed for a few years to the Bare Minerals stuff on QVC. It’s why I have so much, but I do really love it. It came in the mail, I got brushes, and it doesn’t expire.

Anyways, I got this wood tool chest about 5-7 years ago off a Harbor Freight Tools Black Friday deal. I love it. It has moved cross country several times, too! It is extremely sturdy and does a great job of organizing my makeup. My makeup table is a cheap IKEA computer desk and I’m typing on it right now. Yes, I work here too. The Micke Desk + hutch are probably the closest thing to my desk. It is nicer than mine but I have 4 cubbies for shelves on the side. That’s where I store all my lotion, nail polish, etc.

I have storage in the top (I actually go into it more often than the top of it currently suggests).

foundation & finishing powder. also my eyelash curler & a mascara because i put it on last.
blush, highlighters, etc.
lipglosses, etc
brushes. i have more brushes. we just cleaned mine and they aren’t all back in the drawers yet.

So, there you have it. I am highly embarrassed. That is a heck of a lot of makeup.

      Yeah I know, pretty awesome!! Sometime after I get everything cleaned up I’ll take new photos. I have new organizing bins on the side of the hutch.
