Reorganising My Makeup Collection

One of the main things I wanted to do before the end of 2018 was declutter my makeup collection. We moved house at the end of October and that would have been an ideal time to do it but I just didn’t have the time.

I feel so lucky because I now have a dressing table in my bedroom😍 I haven’t put anything in there yet (apart from the essentials) but I am planning on getting some drawer dividers so that everything has it’s place and I can see exactly what I want straight away.

At the moment I store my makeup in some storage boxes which isn’t ideal as I have to search through them for what I want but I have now put everything into an order🙌🏼 all of my lipsticks were just piled up and I could never find the shade I wanted to I started to line them up but then I realised I couldn’t see the shades so I turned them upside down which looked 10x better.

I then started stacking my palettes up in size order, I always try to keep things in their original packaging as I hate throwing it away. This box is not my everyday makeup so I’m hoping I’ll be able to keep it this neat!

My everyday makeup I am currently keeping in one (quite big) makeup bag so that it is easily accessible, I am quite predictable and do where pretty much the same makeup everyday when I’m working. I’ll do an updated everyday makeup routine soon 💄

I think it is a good idea to go through your makeup every now and then as you will most likely find some really old things that you’ll never use again and are most properly out of date.

Where/how do you store your makeup?

  3. I keep most of my makeup in Alex drawers – I know, so many people have Alex drawers, but that’s the best I can do for now. I’m actually doing a series on my blog now that showcases my collection 🙂
    I see that you have a lot of Pixi products – I just started to try them out during the last bit of 2017. I need to try their lippies!


  4. So pretty! I love that basket 😍


  5. Having dividers is so handy, it is definitely easier to seperate face makeup from lip and eyes.


  6. Love your post, nothing better than a good organise 😊 i have a dressing table with a drawer, i keep everything organised into trays so I can see what I’ve got. I then keep all my everyday makeup in one tray together so I can get ready quickly on work days x
