For the past few years I’ve been storing my makeup collection in the top two drawers of my Ikea Malm chest. But not all of it is actually in there. I have a few bits and bobs standing on top of it. Because I use it as a background for most of my pictures I thought it’d be fun to show you guys what’s actually on there. If you’re interested in finding out, make sure you keep on reading!
Let’s start off with one of my favourite parts: the palettes. I store 8 of my favourite palettes on top of my makeup collection for a few reasons. The first reason being that it’s super handy because you can just grab it without having to look for in in the drawers itself. But aside from that I also think it looks really good. It shows my love for makeup, and I like that.
I store the palettes in two napkin holders from Ikea. In each napkin holder are 4 palettes, which fits perfectly. The palettes that are in there are: UD Naked 1, 2 and 3, Too Faced Chocolate Bar, Too Faced Natural Eye, UD Gwen Stefani and both my Stila Eyes Are The Window palettes.
Underneath the palettes I have a clear box in which I store my current favourite lipsticks. I think it’s just very efficient to store my favourite ones like this, because this way I don’t have to look for them when I’m in a hurry in the morning.
The top drawer consists of my favourite lipsticks and the bottom drawer is filled with lipglosses, lip crayons, lip lacquers and two lipsticks.
Beside the clear cube and the palettes I have two more makeup products. The golden box is by Stila. It’s their Sending You My Love Gift Set from the Christmas LE of 2015. I love the look of the packaging so much that I really wanted to store it there. This way I can always look at it and I don’t have to throw it out.
On top of that is a box from a MAC Christmas LE from a while ago. I bought this from a fellow blogger who didn’t want it anymore, and I’m still so happy with it. The box looks absolutely stunning and the products inside are even prettier. I love it!
The last thing I wanted to show you are my perfumes. I have a silver platter on which I store all of my perfumes. It’s pretty much full, but whenever I get a new perfume, I always find a way to get it to stand on there too. I do like having my perfumes on display like this because I think it looks very feminine and elegant. I also think it’s convenient and it saves storage space.
Aside from that it’s also great to use as a background for pictures for my blog. I do like the way that looks. In between the perfumes I put some fairy lights to create that pretty bokeh effect for my pictures. I really like the look of that.
And that’s it. That’s everything I wanted to show you today. I hope you enjoyed reading today’s post and let me know which products or what items you store on top of your makeup collection!
