My Makeup Storage // Budget Friendly

Hello darlings

Today i thought i'd do a different kind of post. I have spent hours of my life scrolling through Instagram and Pinterest looking for storage ideas for my new house. I have had quite a few of these  bits and pieces for a few years but recently i bought a couple of new things and i think i almost have my ideal set up. Today post will focus on my makeup, its all on a budget, i hope you find it useful! I'm thinking of making this a series and doing each room, let me know what you think! 
This is the famous IKEA Malm desk, in white. I only bought this the beginning of this year when we moved in, i'm a little late to the party. But i'm so glad i have it! I finally have two separate desks, one for my makeup and one for my work/laptop etc. Its the perfect size, without being to bulky or too small. I love the shape and size, i love that its one large draw, its much easier to find everything an organised it. 

My Chair:
My mother-in-law picked this chair up in a charity shop, i think it was £5 which was a bargain! i love  it and the red matches my curtains and winter bed sheets.
Another huge blogger you tuber favourite is the again IKEA flower pots that we use for brushes, i also have a pen pot that i use for my mascaras and eyeliners. I love them, the white and grey matches my white ad grey bedroom. 
Lipstick Holders:
I'll start with the storage on top, the small round pot i bought in the Poundshop a few years ago. The larger square one i bought in TKmaxx when i was in Uni, i believe it was around £6/8? I love both of these, they are so handy for displaying my lip products. It is also handy as it helps me switch things up regularly so that i'm using all my products! (sorry its not the tidiest) 
Storage Draws:
The small grey storage draws i bought from the pound shop, i have two sets of twos stacked on top of each other, they were £1 each. I keep my perfume samples in the top draw and makeup samples in the second draw down. Then i have concealers in the third draw and finally face/eye primers in the bottom.

The clear draws, these are from Muji, i bought when i was in London three of four year ago, i remember i did a post about them (link) at the time. I still think they are amazing and one of the best things i've bought for my makeup. The top draw contains my eye shadows palettes than i'm currently using. The second draw has single eye shadows and brow products.The third draw has powders, blush, bronzers, highlighters. Finally the bottom draw has all my foundations in.  
Inside the large draw i have a couple of old boxes that i keep my skincare in but other than that i just have it places i here. I usually keep gift boxes or chocolates boxes and use them but i know that quite a lot of bloggers that look good and more organised, but this works for me. I don't need to spend a lot of money on something that only i see and my partner Will. 

The Jewelry Tray:
I picked up this cute floral tray while i was in Amsterdam at the Rijksmuseum.
Lastly my latest purchase, i love my cube boxes that i bought to display my perfumes! I bought them in B&M (the place of wonders!) for about £6.99. I have some similar ones in my bathroom but they are a larger version from B&Q that i display all my hair product, but i plan to do a separate post of my bathroom storage! I think they are so hand and look so chic!

I'd love to know how do you store your makeup?
