When it comes to makeup storage, acrylic drawers seems to be the go to thing. I think this started off with the Kardashians, who have been known to have huge acrylic drawers from Clear Cube. Unfortunately for us mere mortals £300+ is a lot to spend on drawers!
Many of us jumped onto the Muji acrylic drawers bandwagon (including me!), however if you have a large collection like mine, it still works out pretty expensive and the drawers aren't deep enough for bottles of foundation etc.
A couple of years back, we purchased some stationary drawers from Staples to hold paper and other bits and bobs. Recently we have had a huge clear out with the decorating that's been going on and these drawers needed a new home.
These stationary drawers are excellent for storing makeup because they're sturdy and are deep enough to store a lot of makeup! The other plus is that they can be picked up from your local stationary shop because I know I struggled trying to purchase Muji products, when there's not that many stores in the UK.
I don't openly store my makeup on a vanity table because I just don't have the space in my room, but all my lotions, potions and makeup are stored nicely away inside a section of my wardrobe. Now, I know these plastic drawers aren't exactly the prettiest things but because it's inside my wardrobe it doesn't bother me.
I prefer keeping my makeup in drawers, as it makes it much easier to find items and if I can psychically see the makeup, I'm more likely to use it!
