Make Up Storage

Hello my lovelies,
Since January I have been promising to show you my make up storage. I will film a special video to show you some trick and ideas of keeping all things clean and tidy(very important with make up) but in the meanwhile here is a bunch of pictures of my make up area and where I film.
As you can see, I use Muji acrylic boxes, which I like because they are shallow and see through so it’s easy to find everything in the morning or when in the rush. I also add few boxes or containers from various places. The acrylic organisers in the big drawer are from Ikea, as well as my vanity table (Ikea-Malm).
The nail polish rack I got off Ebay, and everything else I will list under the pictures. Prepare for picture overload :D If you have ANY questions tweet @tamarakalinic for instant response, or comment below :)

Three round pots keeping my Mac lipsticks (chocolate muss came in these originally)
single eye shadows, that I use a lot
Other lipsticks I use, besides Mac
Lipglosses I use a lot

Mac blushes

Other Blushes

Bronzers and MSFs I use mostly
Daily foundation choice
current perfumes
In two short drawers next to my dressing table I keep things that are not used often. Rest of my polishes, nails stuff, nail art, gelly cushions for heels, eye drops, some Lush products…
They have Ikea Godmorngon organisers in
Lip Balms, my obsession
Before the make up I scrub and condition my lips
Daily used face brushes, mascaras and eye brow pencils
another overview
most used nailpolishes
Chanel, Dior, Mac, Ysl quads
Mac palletes ( I have three full -natural, darks, and colourful), Naked and Alice in Wonderland ( Urban Decay palettes) , Mac most used quads of my choice. Mac lip sticks and Juicy tubes on the left by Lancome.
Do you have any good ideas for storage, or how do you store your make up?
Any questions, comment pls.
Love you all xoxo

  33. Isabela says:

    I wish there was a Muji in my country, I’ve been drooling over their acrylic storage itens for ages… Instead I just store my makeup in empty glossybox boxes, those boxes in which your iPhone comes in (though I wouldn’t stop using these for the world, MAC MSFs fit there perfectly).
    Lovely collection, girl!

    Are you kidding us? This is really impressive, I’m still in the running towards getting a walk-in closet and you are already one step ahead with this collection of cosmetics. :D

  46. Zorannah says:

  47. Ally says:

    That’s some serious organization! Love it and it’s so fun to see all that makeup and beauty stuff :) I lose track of all of my eyeshadows because they’re just thrown in a giant bucket

  48. i LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE this post!! i have the same ikea dresser and i was actually slaving away on the internet a few hours ago trying to look for clear acrylic boxes to organize my makeup in. i didn’t know ikea had some so i will check it out tomorrow!

  49. Jelena says:

    Uh, sve je fenomenalno, od sminke pa do pakovanja. :) Ali najvise bi mi trebala ova polica za lakove, posto ih imam preko 100. Da li znas kako bih to mogla ovde u Beogradu nabaviti?

  50. Shelly says:

    That is fab! I use the Muji drawers too! (although my collection is no where near as big as yours!)
    Heres my post on storage…;postID=6944050410033272949

  55. JayDee says:

    Wow. You have A LOT of make up!! I was in search of a make up organizer for my closet not too long ago and I got something called Muji which was a smaller version of the clear acrylic cube! Where did you get the nail polish holder? I love it!! Love this post! <3

  56. WOW! Pitam se dali stignes ti ovo sve iskoristiti? Ja sam mislila da ja imam puno sminke, lakova ali this beats me for sure.. a ja 80% od svog ni ne stignem koristiti nazalost. So pitanje, dali stvarno stignes ovo koristiti ili na kraju moras baciti pola kao ja? :D oxo Leylah
