My Makeup Storage and Collection

Hello Everyone!


Many of you asked ,so today I wanted to share how I currently have most of my makeup stored and set up. I know this post LONG overdue! As much as I love my Muji drawers, I'm going to have to add larger storage for my makeup. These Muji are affordable, but I wish Muji would make larger and longer acrylic storage cases that would hold more of my makeup.

I didn't included the makeup I received for my birthday/Christmas or the makeup I recently  purchased since I have to re-arrange some of my makeup products. Look for that in an updated Makeup Storage and Collection Post later this year!


This is my set up for now. In the next few months I plan on adding another acrylic case. I'll probably get another brand of acrylic cases (for more space) to hold my makeup


As you can see each drawer is different in size. I thought it was important to show this because the Muji drawers can look deceiving in size. I will display and describe each drawer throughout this post.


Muji Acrylic Case 5 Drawers

Front View



First Drawer: Eyeshadow Palettes



Second Drawer: Lipsticks



Third Drawer: Lipsticks

This drawer is good for holding lipsticks, lip glosses, lip pencils, and small eyeshadow palettes. Just so you know, in the 5 drawers Muji acrylic drawers you can't really stack your large makeup items., but I'm able to stack the Maybelline 12 shade Palettes.



Fourth Drawer: Lip Glosses and Lip Balms


Fifth Drawer: Lip Pencils



Muji Acrylic Case 2 Drawer

First Drawer: Eyeshadow Palettes, Makeup Brushes, and Contour Palette


Second Drawer: Eyeshadow Palettes

I use this 2 drawer for medium sized eyeshadow palettes, and other makeup palettes. I have a few gold brushes from Sephora in them as well. You're able to stack products in this Muji drawer.

Three Unit Drawers: Eye Products and Makeup Remover



You can also use these drawers vertically




Second Single Drawer: Face Products



Third Single Drawer: Eyeshadow Palettes

These are my favorite, the large single Muji drawers. You can stack these on top of each as you can see from picture. I love this drawer because it holds most of medium and large eyeshadow palettes. In the drawer above I store my face products. My glamorous blush palette also fits inside the drawers with my face products. The single  large Muji Drawers are very spacious.

Great way to storage your makeup.

You have a nice set up Pilar!! I really like those smaller threw drawe ones that you keep you're eye products and makeup remover in. Those seem like a good size to store eye liners and mascara? I'll have to keep those in mind if I ever get new drawers!!

Thanks Ashley! That's primarily why I got the 3 drawers, for eye products! Eyeliners and mascaras fit perfectly in those drawers! I may get another of 3 drawer units in the future!

thanks for sharing your storage with us. i have muji too--not my fave, but so good for lip products!

You're welcome Elle!

Pilar, you have a beautiful set up! It looks so good. I love how everything has a place and it's super neat. That is so important, especially when you're trying to find something. That was (and is my biggest challenge)...finding what works with what I have. You have to think of the type of product AND how much of it you have! LOL You'll find extra storage. Our makeup collections keep growing :)

Thanks Kim! I try to keep my makeup neatly stored and you're right it is easy to find things when they're organized! My set up is fine for now, but I hope to have more storage by the Summer.

Thanks!

This is the perfect post for me right now since I've bee doing a ton of googling on some new storage for my every day makeup. I currently have a couple old acrylic organizers from Bed Bath & Beyond but like you, I'm realizing I really need more space now haha! Muji has been at the top of my list on where to pick some stuff up so its awesome you have so many of their organizers so I can get an idea on sizes and styles :)
