New Makeup Storage & Collection

So you all know I am seriously addicted to storage. I love organising things especially my makeup. With plans of redoing my entire bedroom, I went to Ikea to get some new makeup storage and I bought the Helmer drawers.

Now I have always wanted the Alex but nothing in my room is white and I did plan on placing it in my wardrobe in the side door as there is just wasted space however turns out the Alex is really long at the back so that wasn't an option, so I opted for the Helmer. I used some storage separators I currently have and I bought two little inserts from Ikea and I'm glad I didn't buy more as they take up so much space without actually being practical if that makes sense. So anyway here is my new set up. Sorry for a real picture heavy post but I know you love makeup storage aswell....I am so good to you haha.

I decided to keep this area super makeup orientated so down the side of the unit I have some makeup bags, I am obsessed with makeup bags then I have my light up mirror on top and my make-up brushes and my everyday makeup bag. I opted to store my makeup brushes in here to stop them getting dust on them. Plus I want my new room design to be super chic and minimal plus everything is all in this little area now. I then have my muji drawers on top. In these I have eye bases in one drawer and lip crayon pencils things in the other. On a little side not I have labels this makes me very happy haha.
