Makeup Storage Ideas


Finding the perfect makeup storage has been somewhat of a struggle for me. I’ve long coveted Muji acrylic makeup storage but it is too expensive in Ireland and the delivery is too much from England – problems of being a student! Although I may have purchased some other storage online (post will be up next week), these pieces have worked really well as storage for the past while. They’re cheap and easy to find – and that’s always good in my books!


Ferrero Rocher boxes stacked on top of each other to store lip products and small palettes


Ice cream glass and IKEA candle holder to store eyeshadows


 Plastic tumblers from Tiger to store eye products and concealers


Empty packaging from a gift, a small glass and a Nutella jar to store brushes


Dish from IKEA to store bigger products 

I hope this post was helpful to anyone looking to expand their makeup storage – you can literally use anything to store makeup, just think outside the box!
