Readers of this little blog have often asked about my make-up storage having seen it hanging in the background of many a picture. Well John Lewis have asked me ‘is your beauty storage beautiful?’ I keep all my essentials on top of my dressing table. I have other make-up but these are the things that I reach for most often – plus my other make-up storage isn’t as tidy right now. The draw to my dressing table holds a whole host of things – but make-up wise mainly palettes.
I use this clear plastic storage which I bought from Muji – I think it is important to be able to see what products you have. It saves me rummaging around in the drawers or opening every drawer to find what I’m looking for. I also think if you have spent a fair bit of money on a product you wouldn’t want it hidden away as you are less likely to use it. I’ve also sectioned off things as best as I could – although there are a few eye products in the lip draw because I ran out of space. I don’t have as vast a collection as some people out there but this suits my needs for most occasions. I tend to wear a brown smokey eye for everyday make-up. You can see a couple of my perfumes on one of the above pictures. I only keep the ones out that I’m using at the moment, I don’t have enough room on my dresser for all of them. My Liz Earle products are also out on the top as they are something I reach for everyday.
