My make up storage

It's no secret that I'm a messy person - my room constantly looks like it's been ransacked, but I do seem to know where everything is which is definitely a positive. I've never really had any form of solid make up storage, until Bisley got in touch with me; they offered to send me one of their multi-drawer units.

I had a long wait for this, because it came while I was on holiday then I went straight back to uni and had no chance to sort it out - but when I did get around to it, I was thrilled. I have the H125NL Multidrawer 12/5NL in 'Anthracite' which is a beautiful dark grey. It sort of matches the flowers on my wallpaper, so I'm happy with that - but they do it in some gorgeous bright colours if you're one of those sassy pinterest-perfect gals with a white room that needs a pop of colour.

Bisley, as you might know, specialise in office furniture - my dad thinks it's so weird that I'm using a "miniature filing cabinet" for my make up but it's honestly perfect. It has five drawers, and I've separated mine into the following categories: eyes & brows, base & face, face & cheeks, lips, and brushes. The drawers came with little cards so I could write labels for each drawer, and trust me this comes in handy when I'm hungover and getting ready for work at 8am...

The drawers are spacious; admittedly, I don't have all my make up in these drawers as yet, because half of it is still at my university house, but I can't see it being a problem trying to fit it all in! I might get some little plastic boxes to put inside, but I don't really think it's a neccessity. I have some skincare on top, and that way everything is in one place - voila. These retail for around the £50 mark, and you can get them from Bisley and a few other places!

How do you store your make up?


  1. These are amazing, I like how you have managed to write on them what is in each drawer too. I have the classic Alex drawers to store all my makeup and skincare pieces but all my Lush stuff have a separate unit all together. Lovely post :) xx
