Makeup Storage

A while back I wrote a post about how I store my jewellery (you can read it here) and I have been intending to also share how I store my makeup but, until now, haven't managed to get round to it. However, since finishing college I have had a lot of time on my hands so I have finally got round to doing this post which I hope you enjoy.

I bought this tin from a vintage shop in Rochester and, since then, all of my nail varnish have gone there to serve out the remainder of their days. 
Also, I did try to tidy up these nail varnishes for the post but it just wasn't happening. 

I keep my basics in this makeup bag which I have had for ages and have no idea where it came from. I keep this on my shelf and I like to just have my foundation, mascara and powder in there so when I woke up at 7:15, 10 mins before the bus left, I could jump out of bed and grab what I needed. 

I was given this little pot, which was originally filled with truffles, for my birthday and thought that it was really pretty so decided to use it to store my lipbalm. 

I got this vintage cigarette tin recently at a car boot sale and I have used it to store things like hand cream. I have recently been able to fill it up with more things.

Finally I have my big box which I got from a charity shop. I put all the items in here which aren't in my basic makeup kit and also some backups of foundation etc. 

I hope you enjoyed this post and liked seeing where I store all my makeup. I would love to know how you store your makeup - especially if you have any unique tips.


  1. You have some beautiful boxes!

  2. Great post! It's handy keeping one makeup bag aside with your absolute essentials in for days when your rushing!

  3. Das sind wirklich tolle Ideen, um Make-Up aufzubewahren.
    Vor allem die erste Box ist wunderschön. :)
    Und auch die kleine rosane Dose, in der du deine Lipbalms aufbewahrst,
    ist richtig süß. ;)

    Liebe Grüße

  5. Great idea, I love the difference between them all. I want something prettier for my makeup, I just throw it in a basket and an ugly makeup bag I bought from Primark.
