Storage - Everyday Makeup Letter Organiser

13 January 2012

I had such lovely feedback on my last storage post and people asking to do more, so I've done exactly that for you all :) This is one of my newer storage items. I wanted something that I could house my current everyday 'go-to products' without having to route through boxes and drawers and such. Obviously, everyday products change when we find new items we love, but this for me makes it easier in the mornings I think, especially at work and I'm bleary eyed. There's currently lots of MAC in lipsticks, blush, strobe cream etc, my beloved Diorskin Forever and Lancome Teint Miracle Foundations, 2 of my holy grail mascara's - Collection 2000 Skyscraper, my new foundation addition Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk, Benefit and Sleek palettes, a couple of other lippies, Bourjois Rose Frisson blush and my Chanel no5 and YSL Paris perfumes. Nice and easy to mix and match in the morning :)

This wire looking sectioned basket typet thing is actually a letter organiser. Pretty huh! I bought it from TK Maxx for the princely sum of £9.99. Absolute bargain. I'm a real lover of the whole shabby chic decor which is how my bedroom is decorated, so this fits in perfectly. Because it's sectioned, it makes seeing what I have available so easy. Also, I love being able to store my foundations upright. I can't stand lying them down (kinda OCD!) and it means they're all stood up and looking lovely. I've done some more eBay searching and found some good alternatives to this one.

This is adorable with the little jewelled heart at the front. Loads of room for foundations and the back and lippies at the front! £10.50 with £3.25 postage.

This image shows the ribbon as a demonstration, which does look really pretty. Even so, it gives you a good idea how wide it is and is perfect for all your foundations to stand upright on. £12.00 with £3.50 postage.

Much like the one above, there is more than enough room for palettes and foundations and similar items. I think the decoration of this one is just so pretty! £8.99 with £1.95 postage.

Hope these ideas help you if you're looking to revamp your storage. Like before, I haven't been asked to feature these items by the sellers..I've just found them whilst looking for my own ideas. If they help you then that's great. I do reckon that I might buy one just for my foundations in the future. Happy Friday!
