Wishlist: Makeup Storage

Since moving back in with my parents last August, my make-up storage has been less than ideal; I've got way less space than I'm used to and as a consequence, a significant chunk of my make-up has basically been neglected for six months. This makes me sad, so I've been consoling myself by looking at pretty alternative storage solutions - most of these would also make lovely desk storage for pens, pencils, and other bits and pieces - I'm all about the versatility!
Pretty Makeup Storage
Ceramic Black & Copper Tumbler, George at Asda, £5
Large Ribbed Glass Storage Jar, Wilkinson's, £5
Gold Spot Ceramic Tumbler, George at Asda, £3
8-Piece Interlocking Bin Set, Lakeland, £7.99
Heart Glass Lantern, Wilkinson's, £3
Metal Design Pen Pot, Wilkinson's, £1.15
Faux Rattan Storage Tray, Lakeland, £3.49
Square Stackable Boxes, Lakeland, £9.99
I really like pretty jars, I'm not a fan of the whole acrylic drawers storage thing for make-up - Wilkinson's do a lovely selection of jars in both the bathroom and office/stationery ranges, which could obviously be re-purposed for make-up brushes, mascaras, eyeliners etc. George at Asda also have some gorgeous tumblers which look a lot more expensive than they actually are, I love the gold spotty tumbler! Lakeland is pretty much my favourite store, I could lose hours of my life in there; as well as the lovely faux-rattan tray, they also do a fab range of dividers and organisers to help keep everything in its place. I know I said I'm not a fan of acrylic but the stackable boxes would be perfect for keeping little bits together like single eyeshadows that don't get used as often.
How do you store your make-up and keep everything organised? Are there any sites or stores you'd recommend me having a look at?

  4. Great ideas! I could use one of these jars to store my brushes in :) I store my makeup in drawers and then use different things to divide it. x

  11. There are some really cute storage options here, I particularly like the Wilkinsons bits, might have to head to the store soon! My make up is usually all over the place so could really do with organising everything!
