How To Store Makeup and Jewellery

Dear Beauties,

Today, I am going to share with you all my humble makeup and jewellery collection and how I store and organize them πŸ™‚ My entire collection just started about 1.5 years ago and it has been growing every single day! Initially, I used a small drawer to store everything, but recently it was get impossible for me to organize it in a single drawer and this made me think about options to get a vanity storage. I saw these 5-drawer letter organizer in one of my friend’s place and she used this to store her makeup and skin care items and I thought “wow that perfectly made sense,” instead of investing in a huge amount on dressing tables. I got 2 of these 5-drawer letter storage boxes and can’t stop loving them! Its a perfect way to store and organize your makeup collection.

My entire makeup and skin care collection is stored in these 2 boxes. Each letter box has 5 drawers. The boxes are pretty big and sturdy and not to mention highly useful in organizing my vanity.

WARNING: Β This is going to be picture-heavy post and is not meant for weak hearted as by looking at so much makeup, you may get a head rush and be tempted to splurge making a BIG hole in your pocket!! πŸ™‚

The first box contains my lipsticks, eyeshadows and jewellary collection. I use separate drawers for storing each of them. I also use the space on top of the boxes to store my earrings. More on that later πŸ™‚

  4. woooooo…u mean ‘humble makeup and jewellery collection’? πŸ™‚ good organising and i loved the ‘warning’ πŸ˜›

  5. would you believe that i used to store my makeup in these pull out drawers until recently but the ones your picked up look super classy. Mine toh were from a brand called nyasa with transparent boxes with red, white and blue outers. Honestly they became an eyesore after a point of time . Those plasticky things didn’t add anything to the aesthetics of the room. They looked rather cheap πŸ™ i wish i had found your kinds. πŸ™ So now I am rearranging my stuff again since I have better organization now. I looooved your idea of hanging earrings in those jars. I am so going to get those. loved your collection. πŸ™‚

    1. oh these are super elegant and classy Rati..i especially love the black one more..they dont look cheap at all infact even material wise they are very sturdy infact even quite heavy when empty πŸ™‚ thanks that pen stand is my fav πŸ™‚ m glad you liked it

      1. yeah yours look so classy. Even the containers looks so fine and elegant. I couldn’t find these when I started stacking mine some months back. let’s see what I do with my storage now. but def stealing the pen stand idea. πŸ˜€

  6. Great organization! What does the Avene spray do? I got a similar drawer set from Ikea recently, for my makeup etc, I still need to figure out how to organize my jewelry. I really like the colored stencilled pen holder idea! Thanks for the helpful post Parita! xoxo

      1. thanks anjum..avene thermal water is excellent for skin, its soothes irritated skin..i use it everytime I go for threading and absolutely no rashes..or use it on its own too..excellent for combi skin as it takes care of dry patches πŸ™‚
