Sweet Sundae Storage

♥ hi gals 
When I first started blogging, I did a little post on my makeup storage/vanity space. You can cheekily click here if you want to have a peek..
Well consequently, 4 months later, thanks to many a blog sale and umpteen mac collections...I am spilling out of my current storage, bronzers and blushers unashamedly strewed everywhere!

I needed something temporary to house my new makeup until I could reassess the situation and purchase some more mirrored storage.
I trawled through my cupboards, and I spied these retro ice cream sundae glasses.

Probably more akin to being placed on a dining table next to a prawn cocktail in the 70's... I thought they were quite sweet and ideal for holding some of my shadows and blushers.




I think these are really pretty, and although not entirely practical, will suffice until I can overhaul my vanity space and buy some new storage!


Do you ladies have any cunning storage solutions that you utilise for times when your makeup is overflowing...?!

Sometimes it's just easier to have things to hand like this - great idea! Shamefully my collection is strewn over the spare bed :( I'll have to get myself sorted pronto

I use vintage teacups to store jewellery in and that always looks pretty. I use a Cornish striped milk jug for long tubes (e.g: mascara, eyeliner) and little pretty small mugs for lipsticks etc :)

Aww so cute! Unfortunately I don't have enough makeup to worry about storage (yet), but will remember this when I do :)

Café Bellini said...

That's a cute idea! But I use drawers from Muji - they're not particularly pretty but very practical and I like to organise my make-up. I just keep on buying more drawers, stacking them up higher and higher.... I've got to stop buying make-up!

Dreams That Glitter said...
