Makeup (etc) storage|organisation

I feel like the new year symbolises resolutions, spring cleans and new changes; meaning a little beauty sort out! I love seeing how people organise and store their products and I can't deny I'd love to own the most beautiful, pristine collection with clear acrylic as far as the eye can see and everything colour and task coordinated. 

However for now, I'm more than happy with the practical set up I have at the moment, the everyday part of which I'll be showing you below :) 

I have a little shelf that sits above my desk, on which I have the makeup, products and brushes that I use most. Other makeup and hair/body/face products take up vast amounts of space in drawer units elsewhere in my room!

My most used skincare I currently have in an upturned Glossybox, which keeps everything together and tidy but also due to it's limited size, keeps me focused on what I need to use! I am awful for forgetting about products if they're out of my sight! Here I have my Olay CC cream (review here), absolutely the best of it's kind!

I keep my everyday makeup in 2 narrow Muji drawers. I love the clear acrylic and these drawers are affordable and beautifully made. I have a good number of the wide drawers too for makeup I don't use everyday.

As I'm so fickle with what base I wear on any given day, I like to keep my favourite foundations such as my Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua's and Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk, within reach in a little Laduree box (my absolute favourite macarons!)

Another winner from Muji is this 3-compartment pencil pot to hold my pencil-shaped makeup such as liner and mascara, small brushes and larger brushes. I also house my cotton pads in this sweet, acrylic tower from eBay.

I also keep some lipbalms and little sample tubes I'm using at the moment in a little glass dish from John Lewis.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing my capsule collection, there will come a time where no doubt I'll do a full collection post! If you have a similar post, be sure to link me in the comments, I'd loveeee to read it :)
