Organising My Makeup Collection

For years now I've been on the hunt for some affordable makeup storage. I think it was spurred on by the fact that everyone seemed to have a certain set of Muji drawers either on their blogs, YouTube channels or Instas. But at the time I just couldn't part with £30+ on clear plastic drawers, no matter how much I wanted them.

Because I blog about beauty, there really are beauty bits dotted all over my house and sometimes I almost forget what I have and what I love as a result. So when I spotted these babies on the New Look site I knew that I'd finally struck gold. I had initially planned on taking advantage of the 25% off everything deal that they ran a few weeks ago but for some reason or another (probably because I'd already been a bit spendy that month) I hadn't got around to buying them. So you can imagine my surprise and excitement when I clicked back onto the site to see that they were running a buy one get one free promotion on their entire beauty range. BUY ONE GET ONE FREE!! At £15 each (aka. what they cost normally), I think that's a really affordable price for what you're getting but them being BOGOF meant that each set of drawers cost me just £7.50!

I'd seen other acrylic drawers, other than the Muji ones, online but most were on Amazon or eBay and I wasn't sure what the quality would be like or if I could return them if they didn't work for me, which was another reason for ordering them from New Look. I got free delivery to store and knew that I could easily return them had they not been to my taste after receiving them. They're a great size and the quality is really good too, something I wasn't necessarily expecting. To have all of my makeup in one place and organised by category makes such a big difference each day. It also means that my makeup bag isn't bursting at the seams either.

Let me know if you'd like to see a full blog post on my makeup collection as well as which products are my holy grails and instant re-buys! It has been quite a while since I've shared some of my beauty favourites.

You might already spot a few, as well as a couple of new purchases (hello CT's iconic Glastonberry lipstick, Clinique's Chubby Gloss & Shine and the new Makeup Revolution liquid highlighter!)

How do you store your makeup and beauty bits? Have you been looking for a similar storage solution too? And did you even know that New Look did makeup storage, brushes and a huge beauty range?
