MY MAKEUP DESK

19/08/2017

I have been putting off making this blog post for the longest time. I did do one back in April 2016 but I didn’t have a lot of makeup back then and my desk still wasn’t how I wanted it to be. I finally feel like it’s at a place where I’m comfortable sharing photos!

I understand that I have a lot of makeup and no normal person needs this much, but this is what I collect. Some people collect shoes, my husband collects figurines, I collect makeup. This is what makes me happy and I really enjoy doing my makeup!

So this is my set up. Some people may think it’s a little over the top, but I really love it and have dreamed of this for a really long time. People are always asking me how I store all of my makeup so I thought I’d use this post to share how I store it and how to do it without spending an arm and a leg. I will try and link everything I can at the bottom of the post so it’s all in one place.
My wall storage was from a woman I found on Facebook. She was closing her nail salon so I got them super cheap. My eyelash curlers, tweezers, ect, are in a glass jar. I just wanted something simple for them.
I got my makeup pad holder from the reject shop a really long time ago so sadly, they don’t sell them anymore. My 6 mini drawers are just from Kmart and my makeup sponges are in a rose gold pen holder that I got for Christmas.
I store my Lime Crime lipsticks in lipstick holders from eBay and each one holds 24. My brushes are in a pen holder from Officeworks. Office stores are a great place to buy makeup storage. Acrylic makeup storage can be insanely expensive, but office storage is exactly the same, but cost you probably half so I would definitely suggest having a look at your local office supply stores! My big Morphe palettes and Z-Palettes are on a document holder, also from Officeworks.
My Simple Glam Girls Oval Brushes are in a brush holder from eBay. I absolutely love these brushes and use them almost every time I do my makeup. If you’re interested in trying them I have a discount code which is *KaylaLoves.

When I bought this desk it didn’t have a draw. My husband and his dad made it for me because at the time I was really running out of space and needed a draw really bad. They just made a simple draw and then I bought some acrylic kitchen organisers designed for your fridge to organise everything in there! I can fit 9 in there which store my traditional lipsticks, glosses, liquid lipsticks, mascara, foundations, lipliners, powders, glitters, eyelashes and a bunch of other things

So that is basically everything. Believe it or not, this is my collection after getting rid of a lot of it! I probably won’t be buying anymore until Christmas when all of the holiday collections are released!
