Makeup Storage

By Get Lippie

 People are always asking how I store my makeup, and, after spending a day piddling about with instagram a couple of weeks ago, I thought I’d share the pictures here too!  This is … most … (not all, sadly!) of my makeup collection, arranged in a Helmer from Ikea, and in the traincase I bought from Kryolan last year. There’s also a sneaky peek at the bunch of palettes I keep in a Muji box at the bottom there too…

In the train case is the majority of the products I reach for on a daily basis, my makeup “bag”, if you will, here’s the products most in heavy rotation at the moment:

It’s a melange of foundations, blushers, eyeshadows, mascaras and eyeliners.  No lip products to be seen!  I’m on a bit of a NARS kick at the moment, you might be able to tell …

Into the Helmer proper, the first drawer is foundations, primers, powders and other base products:

The second drawer down is my eye drawer, shadows, liners, mascaras and primers:

Yeah, more NARS, I know …

Third drawer down is LIPS:

You might have noticed there were no lip products in the train case, this is because what I like to do on a daily basis is just stick my hand in here and wear whatever my hand lands on.  A lip lucky dip, if you like…

Fourth drawer is, of course, cheeks (have you figured out the order I do my makeup in yet? You should have!) blushers, highlighters and contours galore …

Just the odd one or two, you know.

And finally, the bottom two drawers contain nail varnish. Drawer five mainly houses my Chanel collection:

(And the Dior, the Deborah Lippman, the Rococo and the China Glaze collections)

Whilst drawer number six is:

OPI, Estee Lauder, (man I love those bottles!) and everything else …

The rest of my makeup is in boxes around the flat (lots of boxes around the flat), and then there’s The Cupboard.

One day, dear readers, I’ll show you the cupboard, and you’ll realise why it gives MrLippie nightmares …
