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 Ikea.com is expensive.
I went to Atlanta, GA for a girls weekend back in September and I finally scored Alex to bring home with me.
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
Fifth: lip products
Sixth: Nail products (not to mention the nail polish rack I have)
Seventh: Hair tools and a few random clutch purses
Eighth: Hair products
Ninth: Spare products and empty Mac containers
