My Makeup Storage Tour

My Makeup Storage Tour

There is nothing as therapeutic like cleaning and organizing my makeup collection. I decided to organize my makeup and take you on my makeup storage tour. I also re-purpose some old furniture and added a tallboy.

The trend is to go for the Perspex Makeup Storage Boxes however you need a surface to display them on. I have two perspex storage from Glam Cubes and I love them. But with limited space on my dressing table, the tallboy was definitely a good investment.

I was browsing on the Facebook marketplace and I saw this beautiful tallboy that looks similar to the storage that all of my favorite YouTubers have in their beauty rooms. The price of the tallboy compared to the perspex and is so reasonable and the storage capacity is double if not triple. So let’s take the tour and then I will share where you can get this amazing storage and the price.

I moved the dressing table that I bought about 18 years ago back into the room. I will be painting it with chalk paint and I will take you on that journey once done.


The tallboy looks so beautiful in the room. I moved it into the corner next to my dressing table. I arrange my makeup in each draw that makes most logical sense but I re-organised it to which makes most logical sense. The tallboy is amazing, the drawers are on track and the drawers are secure and cannot be taken out.


On top of the tallboy I have 4 teddy bears that are very special to me. They are from my sister-in-law collection. I choose these specific ones and they remind me of her daily. It feels like I have a piece of her with me every morning when I get ready.

1st Drawer

I keep all our perfumes, you will see more of Marius’s than mine…… what can I say. I also keep toiletries that I reach for on a daily basis in this drawer.

2nd Drawer

My lipsticks collection which inclMAC , Urban Decay, Nars, Smashbox, The Balm, Laura Mercier, Colourpop Ultra Matte and Satin, NYX.


3rd Drawer

Single Eyeshadows and blushes. You will see from this picture that my favourite single eyeshadows is definitely the colourpop super shock shadows. I love the way that it is displayed in the drawer and when I make my selection in the morning it is so easy to choose my colour?


4th Drawer

This is one of my favourite drawers, highlighters. All I want to do is just open the drawer and stare at them. I have to admit some of these I have not used yet. They are limited edition and I was gifted and bought these as they are limited edition and the packaging is just to die for.


5th Drawer

I keep my primers, foundation, and powders, and my special blushes in this drawer.


6th Drawer

This drawer house some of my Eyeshadow palettes. I rotate these with the palettes I keep in my Glam Cube holder on my dressing table. They do no all fit into GlamCubes holder but rotating allows me to use all my eyeshadow palettes.


7th Drawer

I keep all my skincare products, masks, scrubs, cleanser, moisturizer, toner, eye creams, makeup sanitizer, hand sanitizer in this drawer.


8th Drawer

This is the miscellaneous drawer. I keep all additional toiletries and some items that I like to hide from my family.


Dressing Table

The items on my dressing table are the items that I reach for daily. I have my two perspex storage units from GlamCubes. The one is for my brushes and the other my Eyeshadow pallets. I also have cups that I store my brushes in and I rotate these. I spot clean them after using them but have them on a 2 weekly rotation schedule to deep clean.
