Vanity Space

Hey ladies
I hope you have all had a delightful weekend whatever you got up to. I had a particularly lovely Valentine's weekend with the boy. :) In between smooching and gazing into each other's eyes, I decided it was about time to tackle the horrendous chaotic mess that was my make up area.

It had got to the stage where I could no longer locate certain products and had bronzers and mascaras strewed across my table! Storage intervention was necessary!
I had already had some of these mirrored drawers but I needed one more set to store some of the overflowing recent purchases. So this is my sparkly new, freshly organised vanity area! I love this little space.




I purchased these drawers from a variety of different stores over the last year or so. If you are after some like mine, the best places I have found are BHS, Homebase or Matalan. My brush holder is actually a toothbrush holder from BHS! I love the look of this drawers, they make it all look so glamorous and French Chateau! :)
In between the drawers, I have a little white wire letter rack which I have adopted to house my eyeshadow and blush palettes! Also have my MAC brush cleanser and a little box with bits and bobs in like nail scissors, tweezers, eye pencil sharpener, nail glue and magnets! 


So let's have a sneeky peek what lurks in my drawers shall we?! I have vaguely organised them now so all similar products dwell together.

Bronzers, blushes (most are in my palette) and few powders

Foundations, powders, concealers and primers

Lippie Drawer No.1 Balms and glosses

Lippie Drawer No.2 All non MAC lipsticks

Lippie Drawer No.3 My FAVOURITE drawer...MAC lippies *Angels actually harmonise when I open this drawer*

Eyeliners, glitters, primers and eyebrow pencils

Highlighters, MSFs, cheek tints

Primers, mascaras, random pigments...bit miscellaneous

That's it lovelies! I think it's quite a modest collection, but I like it and am so happy it's all organised and purdy! :)
Let me know what you think and tell me all about your makeup storage solutions? Feel free to do a post back and let me nosey at your collection!
