My Make Up & Beauty Storage Tour…

If there’s one thing I adore treating myself too (almost as much as make-up) is storage… ESPECIALLY when it’s for stashing my beloved beauty items in *happy sigh* Being a fan of cooing over other beauty blogger & YouTuber storage videos/posts! I’ve been meaning to film this for a while, but as I’ve recently orchestrated a huuuuuge clear out (in the hope that Santa might help replenish the stock level *hehe*) what better time to show you guys around my little cosmetic corner?

As I’m sure you’ll figure out pretty rapidly, I’m slightly obsessed with Ikea. Okay so I might not be the biggest fan of wandering aimlessly around a never ending showroom in search of a loo roll holder, however when I’m on a mission to unearth the best bargains in beauty storage I’m one very focused gal on a mission. If you’re considering revamping your cosmetic storage then I’d highly suggest you take a trip over… in a rather large vehicle!! If you’re anything like me you’ll be returning home with shelving units and desk chairs strategically placed to test your boot space to the limit. However (if also like me) you prefer to avoid the hustle & bustle of a weekend then aim for a weekday morning to really lavish in the solitude to uncover your anticipated purchases. I personally find Tuesday mornings to be the quietest 😉

Anyways, hope y’all enjoy this week’s video guys, don’t forget to pop over to my channel by *clicking here* where you can subscribe so you never miss an upload! *excited air punch*

      • I watched one of her videos last night, it’s madness! How does she even decide which products to use? It’d be good to have a rummage but I wouldn’t know where to begin lol. That compliment is all true, each Wednesday evening I look forward to seeing what Karen has got in store 🙂 x

  1. You have really nice scarves. The file cabinet looks like the Alex drawers from Ikea. I’ve seen people on YouTube use those letter holders to hold their palettes. I like your Dior bag 😀 what a great way to store your little samples in the Benefit box. It’s so fun to be creative! Great collection! *waves back* 👋🏻 xoxo

    • Oooooh you lucky gal – I would LOVE a set but it would be wasted as my collection is nowhere near big enough 😦 Hoping Santa will help bulk it up a bit lol I’m sure it’ll look amazing huni – be sure to do a post on it if you get it, would love to see it if you didn’t mind giving us all a little tour/review 🙂 Hope you’re having a great week, lovely to get a chatter with you – thanks for stopping by ❤ XXXX

      • I don’t have that big of a collection either! It only looks like that because it’s all shoved in one of those cheaper plastic drawer organizers from Wal-Mart haha! Plus my daughter keeps getting in it and throwing everything on the floor since the only space I have for it is in our bathroom. But I will definetly do a post on my new updated space when I get it and put it together! Hope you have a great holiday!

My daughter is ten so she’s at the stage where she’s asking me if there’s anything she could have all the time lol Looking forward to that post – so chuffed you’re up for doing it 🙂 Give me a nudge when you do it just incase I’m snowed under with work and miss it 😦 Wishing you a fab holiday season too lovely!!!

  3. I am also a huge fan of storage boxes and Ikea! My favorite boxes are actually the pretty material-covered boxes – in which I store scarves, socks, belts, etc. I also use the Ikea plastic dividers in my bathroom cabinet drawers for makeup and such…Lovely little video Karen! 🙂 🙂

I’m just getting on here now after a few days because I wasn’t feeling too well. Which is also why I didn’t get my laundry done lol. XXXX

      • I am loving the vanity! The glass top is easy to clean and it just looks lovely. Might have to add some of those lovely drawers you showed in the vid though, for some extra storage.

      • Oh brill!!!!! I can imagine it’s a dream to keep looking immaculate – that’s the only draw back about my little desk is that I have to use that little mat to ensure I don’t end up marking it etc. Those drawers are SUPERB Anne, plus you love those grey colours so they’re right up your street I’d say. Also very good for storing makeup well out of the light to keep it lasting longer 😉 Ikea really does have it sussed for us cosmetic cravers who need a decent stash station hehe!! XXX

      • Haha, only show people the after result – good play xD My craft room is in such a mes at the moment I’d be afraid to show it to anyone, I think I’m definitely in need of a trip to Ikea after Christmas to help get the place back to being usable!

  7. Great video Karen 🙂 I do love a good makeup storage video! I love those 3 Ikea drawer cabinet thing, I so need something like that! I use acrylic storage although I am running out of space and I don’t really want a table full of acrylic drawers haha! I will definitely need to look into it! You have now totally inspired my to get fixing my makeup table since I have samples and brushes cluttered all over the place haha thanks 🙂
