So we all know that our obsessions with acrylic makeup storage came from the Kardashians promotion of the astronomically priced Clear Cube but there ARE low cost alternatives for you to get that same sleek look at home. I bought my clear drawers from Muji but their stores are few and far between, the online stock is always low and if you can find what you want the postage is high.. so I scoured eBay’s UK listings (there’s LOADS more if you’re willing to buy from further afield but I know some prefer to know they will get it in good time so I limited myself for this post) to find what I consider to be the best offerings of the moment. If you have a regular collection rather than a Boots worth like me then the first set of drawers with the additional detachable storage looks perfect (beware, prices vary on this unit.. the one I’ve linked is the cheapest I saw) and sometimes I really wish my nail polishes would all fit in to a little unit like the one pictured.. life would be simpler I feel.. but as they don’t I need stackable storage like the chest on the right.. something that can be added to over time as a collection expands. There’s so much to choose from but like I say, if you have a moderate amount of makeup there’s no reason you can’t display it in beautiful clear containers such as the ones above on a budget.
How do you store your makeup? Those posts/videos are always my favourite, I love to know how other people organise things!
