My New Makeup Storage

Just a quick post to show you all my new makeup storage.
i finally caved in and bought the ALEX unit from ikea, i thought it was a bit pricey at £81.99, but still went ahead and bought it after seeing numerous YouTube videos.

I got the 9 draw system, it comes with 5 narrow draws and 4 bigger draws, its a really solid sturdy piece of furniture and it holds loads!


Quick pic of the stuff i have on the top.
Pink plastic drawers which currently have my jewellery in them, perfumes, brushes, brush cleaner, mirror etc.


1st draw has all my pigments in, the majority of them are MAC, but theres also some Barry m, Ben Nye and naked pigments in there too.
You can see at the back i have a few products that i haven't opened yet.


2nd draw is my face stuff, like foundations, blushers, bronzers, concealers, primers, highlighters, MAC msfs etc.
i have a grey tray in from ikea too, its a cutlery tray that was 49p, and it works pretty well for me right now, i have one in a few of the draws.
You'll also notice my urban decay Alice in wonderland palette and unopened lash blast mascara in there, again this is just because i didn't have any room in the other draws for them.


3rd draw is all my lip products, the 3 boxes at the front are from the LUSH secret Santa gift sets that i got at Xmas time, they are perfect for my lipsticks, and they fit perfectly in the draw.
Again i have an ikea cutlery tray in this draw too, which holds my regular lip glosses, and squeeze tube lip glosses.


4th draw and probably the most jam packed, is my eye draw, this has all my Mac palettes, which you cant really see in pic as there hiding right at the back, MAC quads, nyx, wet n wild, ELF, false lashes, eyeliners (liquid, pencil and gel) paint pots, mascaras etc, you get the picture lol.


5th draw is all my LUSH goodies, this draw makes my room smell gorgeous all the time!!


6th draw is a bit of a mess, but its all my nail polishes, treatments, nail art etc.


7th draw is all candles, i have bigger jar candles at the back and smaller ones to the front, with tarts and scent shots, they are all Yankee candles and candles by Victoria

.8th draw is all my body lotions, self tan, hair products etc.


Last draw is my pink draw lol, it mainly has all my soap and glory items in, as i got a HUGE box set for Xmas of my boyfriend.
Also has a few bath and body works products and lee Stafford mini hair items.

So what do you guys think??
Overall I'm very happy with it, it enables me to access my makeup much better than before as i had it all bundled into ikea fira wooden boxes, which weren't the best storage but did at the time.
