Beauty Storage

Author: Lauren Coleman

Today I’m sharing a few ideas to keep your beauty products organised and in tip-top condition too. At home I store my make-up in my dressing table drawers partitioned off into compartments for eyes, lips and face. All my nail polishes are bundled together in an apothecary jar like the one featured today. In a completely revolutionary move, I also store some of my cosmetic haul in a make-up bag too!

The Modern Glass Look

For all of you who trawled the shops for candy jars for your wedding sweet display, it’s time to put them to good use. Swap the marshmallows for eyeshadows, or in this case the whole of the Chanel counter. How very dare that Essie nail polish sneak in and ruin the Coco display!
Being a hoarder I keep all the bumpf, bags and ribbon that come with my posh make-up purchases, hence the Chanel ribbon. Obviously you can add any trimmings that you like to personalise your glass. Find similar jars at Confetti or Home Sense.

The Vintage Glass Look

If you favour the glass look but want a more antique display then raid charity shops and vintage stores for cut-glass pieces.
In a former life I like to think this cake stand was piled high with a leaning tower of fondant fancies. Now it sits in my spare bedroom stacked with delicious cosmetic treats instead. I picked up the stand from a Brighton flea market and the pomander jar from a local charity shop.

The Tool Box

Next time you’re stocking up on paint in your local DIY superstore take a look down the tool box aisle for an aluminium tool box.
This method of storing your make-up is heavier than the super-stylish cases a make-up artist would use, however it’s great for organising some of your lesser-used items.

The Muji Drawers

No self-respecting beauty blogger would store her make-up in anything other than a Muji storage solution. These wide drawers will set you back around £11 but there are cheaper and more expensive pieces in the range. Their flip-top boxes make finding your favourite mascara a doddle.

The New Kid on the Block

Charlotte spied this £15 Ikea organiser as an alternative to the Muji acrylic range. The Godmorgon has plenty of compartments for your nail polishes and a handy swivel partition to offer you an extra layer of storage.
It’s quite sizeable so if you don’t have room on your dressing table then this contraption would work well in a deep drawer.

Now it’s your turn. How do you store your lotions and potions? Do you like to have it all out in full view or prefer to stash away in drawers?

  1. Looks like make up heaven to me!!

    I keep my nail polishes in a Channel silver rectangle gift box I got about 7 years ago – it’s bursting at the seams and now there’s an overflow into a Clinique tin I got at bonus time in Boots a few weeks ago!

    Rest of my make is just in boring make up bags…. I may have to rethink!

  2. I use something similar to the acrylic storage above, but I have the best tip ever!! Something I use in the rest of my ‘surplus’ beauty drawers.
    Ready for it?
    Non slip drawer liner.
    Often found by the roll in $ shops. It’s the best cheap thing I’ve ever bought. I use it in my kitchen of course, but it’s been a Godsend for the drawer I keep all my little eyeshadows in and my perfume drawer. No more slipping, sliding or clinking bottles.

  3. My makeup is in a combination of faux rattan storage baskets (easier to clean than wicker and cheaper) and a faux leather make-up caddy, all sourced from Lakeland. The baskets are so useful that we even have them lined up on the window sill in the bathroom – one for my stuff, one for my husbands and one for random bits.

  4. oooh, interestingly the minute I saw these pics I thought this would be a post by Charlotte due to the blog queen’s love of makeup – but wowsers Lauren you have quite a collection going on!! I store all my makeup in some ikea wooden draws that I have painted a lovely blush colour and lined with my favourite wallpaper, it’s so much easier in the mornings than spending half an hour rummaging around in a makeup bag attempting to find your fave mascara!! xx

    1. Helen your drawers sound lovely.
      I have to confess that I may have ‘borrowed’ several of Charlotte’s beauty bits for these photos. My collection isn’t quite as large 😉 x

  5. Mine is in one giant bag but have been thinking I need savvier ways to store my treasure!
    Great idea, thanks for the inspiration 🙂
