Makeup organization


I posted my makeup set up a while back, showing my makeup organization but it felt like such a mess. I had been wanting the Ikea Alex storage unit for years but two issues have held me back. 1) we don’t have an Ikea store in Alabama and 2) shipping from is expensive.

I went to Atlanta, GA for a girls weekend back in September and I finally scored Alex to bring home with me.

Ikea Alex Storage Unit

I love that some of the drawers are shallow, and others are deeper, for bigger items.

The clear box on top of the unit stores single Mary Kay eye shadows. I forgot to take a picture of those.


Top drawer: My foundations, concelors, primers, hand mirror, tweezers, hair chalk


Second drawer: single eye shadows, palettes, eye crayons

Third: pigments, liquid eye liners, small pencil eye liners, fake lashes


Fourth: loose powders, blushes, mineralized face powders
