How To Organize Your Makeup & Jewellery

My Storage Items’ Haul

Greatly inspired by Naina’s recent post, I recently pledged to arrange my makeup an a more organised and aesthetic manner. And hence I was on the lookout for a makeup organiser. I spotted 5-6 different models of makeup organisers at a local shop but since I was confused between two of them, I finally decided to purchase both instead of narrowing my choice down only to one. To my great chagrin, my entire makeup still does not fit into both πŸ™ But I prefer to preserve most of it in my fridge anyways.

Above is picture of a makeup organiser that is in the form of a flat tray. It is made of thick durable plastic and even though the shopkeeper claimed it is breakable, I think only a wrestler will ever have the strength to shatter it to pieces!

This is the second makeup organiser that I got. It is slanted at the top and has three drawers in the lower compartment. You can pull out each drawer separately without disturbing the slanted top or the other drawers.

The drawers open smoothly without making any noise and causing friction. I also find the zigzag design on the 3 horizontal knobs that pull out the three drawers very pretty.

Medicine boxes

Medicine boxes

This one is technically a medicine box and has separate compartments to store each medicine that is to be consumed based on day and time. However, I use it to keep my tiny tops which I used to find difficult to locate in a hotchpotch jewellery box. You can, once again, open and close each compartment separately (with a clicking sound) without disturbing the rest. I purchased this box also from the same shop.

Colorbar freebies

These are a few freebies I got with my recent cosmetic hauls. The, by now, infamous pink Colorbar pouch that I got on the purchase of Bronze Shimmer Bar and True Red lipliner. A Colorbar nail paint in Peacock Blue and a navy blue lipstick case that I got on the purchase of Colorbar’s Full Finish Lipstick β€œTempt Me” and Colorbar Smoky Grey Eyeshadow. I also bought a blue eyepencil and Silk Pop lipstick from Chambor and was given a Chambor Flowing Lipstick in Rose Garnet- a dark rusty shade. Finally, a sipper free on the purchase of Lotus Herbals products costing around Rs. 1000.

lipstick box

Of all the freebies, I like this lipstick case best. It has an inbuilt mirror and I can carry not one but two lipsticks in this, yay! πŸ™‚

gold Bangle

Oh! And this is the final and the best thing out of all the above. πŸ™‚ My mom gifted me this gold bracelet with Meenakari work. I had told Rati about this long ago and had been wanting to put up this picture since then but our family jeweller kept dilly-dallying its delivery because of his intolerance towards the notorious Delhi winter season. Since the cold has more or less subsided now, I finally got this delivered at my home!

Hope all of you enjoyed seeing these pictures . πŸ™‚

  2. where did you pick up these transparent drawers from Natasha. They are awesome. :))

    And I was thinking of picking up these medicine boxes for making a lip palette but now I think I would pick them up for my earrings. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ Thanks for sharing. :-*

    1. I was planning same. Medicine box se yaad aaya….my BF works for Cipla. He gets all such gifts from them. He throws them or gifts to relatives. May be I should ask him to save such cute boxes for me next time….hahaha πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

        1. and the idea of keeping earrings in medicine boxes is pretty cool. You will never be confused which earring to wear which day of the week., loll!!

          1. exactly………….I loved the idea
            apna apna address de do…..he is Delhi only…so Rati will get the delivery faster :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:
            me and Cali have to wait for the dabbas :((

              1. I have saved the photeeeeee…………..I will show him….and demand to get similar ones :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

              1. But me no kidding. If he sends I send you two. Free mein hi aata hai usko. He will be happy to get rid of the clutters and we make good use. :yahoo: :yahoo: :-*

    2. drawers? u mean thos 2 make up organisers, rati? u will get them at standard’s….u heard of that store in dellhi na? :toothygrin:

        1. i actually got it from a very unexpected area…i thought it was a very backward area or something and it had this :yelo: standar’d is in model town north delhi and i got this one from v3s mall laxminagar which is east delhi. they have many branches though. call here n ask for their addresses.

          waise thesemakeup orgaisers also available at amzon but more expensive there and i did not see drawer waala design there . just flat trays.

              1. oops. There is Standard Max where I live in Delhi. Near Shalimar Bagh. I don’t know if they have this drawers there. Will check on my next visit.

                1. jinal i guess al standard max stores r supposed to have it. i saw these in 2 of their branches…just that variety might be very less in some but they all have the flat trays…3drawer waal s bit difficult to get…but u can get 2 drawer waal easily

  3. I loved the boxes… darn neat!! My make-up stuff is all scattered around the house. And end-up finding things I wanted before on the day I don’t want it at all. I think its time to re-organise. May be this sunday. :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

    1. me got medicine boz and makeup ka dabbas from standard max i delhi…its a chain of stores that sells all kinda stuff. yeah u get copy copy of the kangan ok? :spank: :spank: :spank:

  18. Nice organizer Natasha!! I was looking at the lippies and thinking there must be 3 times more stashed in the fridge! I left a comment for you on that MAC cream color base thread..sorry I’m having exams so couldn’t attend your blog sale. But congrats on such a successful blog sale! I wanted ‘irish rose’ and ‘brick-o-la’. Can’t find them anywhere!

    I like the free stuff u got :yahoo: I got a pouch form Revlon and Chambor and pretty pink box from Lotus herbals with mirror inside. The Revlon SA had a coffee mug and a bottle similar to your Lotus free gift too!

        1. shopping experience was good, i ordered several times and their delivery time vaires, i think depending on stock availability or rose i got in a week’s n debit card options are the ones that i can recollect-not sure if they have any other

    1. why Lotus no give me pionk box :weep: :weep: :weep: yeah i read your comment on the MAC page. its ok, u study na, dont think of make up so much :yelo:

        1. wowwwwwww! i am planning to buy bourjois and inglot next month in march…with farha…she coming to delhi na :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: n she will have no money s it wil be fun shopping with her :yelo:

          1. But they have offers right now!! I mean Bourjois does. I’ve not been to Inglot in Mumbai. Bourjois had the black eiffel tower purse for 1200 above and Bourjois Kohl n Contour pencil for 800 above. I made a purchase of above 1600 so I convinced the SA to give me 2 eye pencils. They aren’t as good as Chambor in terms of lasting power but they have more shades and are quite good!!

      1. and yes ankita, there r more in the fridge. actually i keep out only 3 of them…i took out only as many from the fridge as would fit in the empty compartments.

      2. Actually the pink box looked very tacky to me in the beginning and I asked for other options to which the SA only had Lotus apri scrub. So I settled for the pink box. Now I like it cos it has a nice mirror inside and good space to store my lipsticks.

        1. good good. i also detested this colorbar pink pocuh for long time as it looked tacky to me. but i realised that when u travel etc its ok to store makeup in not so expensive and classy pouches…a free pouch is always welcome…sle i alwas used to ahve problems carrying lotins etc. barring a very good and spacious toilet bag gifted to my aunt i had nothing but now i am building up….i also have that chambor ka vanity kit :toothygrin: and send me details of those pink lippies na after exams :yahoo:

          1. You have chambor ka vanity kit?!! The purple silver waaala??!! :woot:
            I got small pouches from Chambor and Revlon, great for carrying things for touch ups during the day. Since I generally carry big bags with not many pockets inside, they’ll be really useful for me.

            I’ll do a post on the pink lippies after exams :waiting: :headbang: exams..!

            1. i am waiting for that post ankita :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: i love bags with pockets though :toothygrin: so i don’t need those chutki pouches…yeah me have that chambor vanity kit only….i clubbed up 2 bills from october and then from jan and threateend the SA into giving it to me…she wa sweet, lke i called her n asked her to keep it for me :toothygrin: i got it for a total purchase of 3000 :toothygrin:

              1. That’s really smart! I’m going to start clubbing bills from Chambor now..though I don’t think I’ll find a sweet SA who’ll do that for me πŸ™

                1. exactly, make it a point to make her feel u will buy chambor from only her….patao her….it works! take her oral commitment that she will club bills, if she doesnt give the commitment just say anywayz after 3 months that she had :yelo: ….mostly this works for me :toothygrin:

  19. while reading ur post, i was so expecting to see another ton of lipsticks. :stars: :stars:
