I was inspired to get my act together and sort my makeup collection out when I saw this post. Oh, isn't it dreamy! So yes, what you're seeing in this post looks very similar to Kate's set up, albeit not as perfectly polished, but can you blame me really?!
The drawers are the Alex drawers from IKEA and my dividers are from Muji. As you can see from my skincare and haircare drawers, I'm still far away from having an organised system. But I'm really enjoying being able to easily reach everything and get ready in one place. It just makes life so much easier.
Here are a few things I've learned along the way:
- You can't buy enough drawer dividers! Whilst you may feel silly strolling up to the till with 10 in your hand...always buy more!
- You won't get it 'Instagram perfect'. What you see on Instagram is a curated picture which only shows the perfectly matching products when in reality we all know everyone has odd products stashed away in a hidden drawer.
- You'll 'shop your stash' more when your makeup is all in one place. I found so many old gems that I totally forgot I owned!
