I've been meaning to buy the nine drawer Alex for a few month now. I needed something bigger than my old plastic four drawer unit and more aesthetically pleasing. As before, the drawers sit inside my wardrobe so that my makeup is hidden away from prying eyes.
It's not as ordered as I would like it to be and I need to buy more boxes or separators to make the most of the drawer space. For now I'm using small plastic containers, Jo Malone and Zuneta boxes and there's even a rogue Glossybox in there. I do hope to find some purpose built organisers for lipsticks etc. but I know some of them may be too deep for the drawers.
Here's a little peep at what's inside...
Face products (minus foundation)
Eyeshadows palettes, foundations, lipsticks and pencils
Eyeshadow - singles, customs palettes and some more pre-made palettes
Skin care, treatments and hair care
Lip glosses, makeup brushes and other miscellaneous items
Although my makeup is now in reasonable order, my perfume, bath and skincare items remain here, there and everywhere. The majority of it is split between my bedside table and the overflowing baskets in the bathroom. If any of you have any inspired ideas about how to tidy that up whilst keeping it accessible, I'd welcome some advice.
