Muji Storage and Make Up Collection 2014

After having a little clear out of my make up drawer the other day I realised that A LOT of the items I didn't use enough. I think this was purely because I couldn't see everything I had to alternate between as most of my make up was completely hidden away in make up bags etc. 

I decided to look into getting some new storage which meant that most of the products I own would be fully on display in my bedroom, so I would be able to choose between different products every single day and not get stuck in a rut with a same old make up routine. I was searching for hours on the internet for storage, and although the storage I came across looked amazing.. they were all just so expensive. 

I had never heard of MUJI before looking on their website and after having a glimpse at the acrylic drawer boxes I knew I had to buy one. This storage was identical to other ones I had seen online but just a fraction of the price. In the end I went for the Acrylic 5 drawer box for just £24.95 which is a good size to hold almost all of my make up (apart from a few lipsticks, my foundations and big loose powders). As soon as my make up collection grows though I am sure I will purchase more of this storage as I have fallen in love with it! 

As you can see from the picture above, this storage has five different compartment drawers which allows me to separate out my make up into groups. This makes it so easy in the morning when I'm getting ready for work or a day out as I don't have to spend ages going through make up bags to find one product. I literally just open up one of the drawers and can see everything. I also think that it will help to use up the products better as you can keep a track on how long you've had a piece of make up for. 

I tend to keep my favourite YSL lipsticks on the top of the storage as I use these the most and normally take one colour in my bag for the day, this is also where I keep my eyeshadow palettes as they don't fit in a drawer. All of my foundations are to the right of the storage in my Ted Baker make up bag along with any loose powders that I have, my Urban Decay setting spray and my make up brush cleaner. My make up brushes are kept separately, however I do want to find some storage for these so I can put them with my make up. 

My make up is roughly organised at the moment, so in my top drawer I have all lipsticks, lipglosses and chubby sticks.

In  my second drawer is most of my mascaras and then some lip balms and butters that didn't fit in the top drawer. 

Third drawer down I have my eye products so eyeliners, eyeshadow sticks, brow products, eye primers, eye shadows and my tweezers. 

My fourth drawer is one of my favourites as it has most of my blushes in and my bronzers, along with a tint blush. 

And then my final drawer has my concealers in, some BB creams and then primers and highlights. 

I hope this has helped you if you are looking to organise and sort out your make up drawers like I was. Muji is definitely the first place I will look from now on and I'm really excited about growing my make up collection futher. Thank you for reading and let me know in the comments how you store all of your make up. xxx


  1. I love that storage. I have the 3 drawer one, and I love it. Its really good at holding flatter products.

  2. Love that storage idea! So smart and simple.
