Makeup Matters: Storage Ideas For The Skincare & Base Drawer

STORAGE | MAKEUP – In My Drawer #1.

It’s been a long time since I created a storage post and it’s changed a little since. I have accumulated a lot of makeup since 2011 and have separated my personal everyday items from my make-up kit. I have 2 large Ikea Malm drawers which are both full. There’s so much to get through so I’m just showing my first, most used drawer today.

In here I keep my most used skincare and my base products so foundation, tinted moisturiser, primer, highlighters, concealers and bronzers.
