Last weekend, I made a little trip to IKEA to pick up a few makeup storage accessories and a photography table for my blog. I love IKEA – I could spend hours there and always end up finding cute things that brighten my condo!
The first item on my list is the ever-popular ALEX 9 Drawer Unit. I’ve seen it featured in a ton of makeup collection and storage videos on YouTube, and liked how deep and spacious the drawers are, the mix of short and tall drawers, and the overall sturdiness of the unit. I was considering getting the smaller, 5-drawer unit, but thought more storage space is better than less!
I placed it in my den next to my bookshelf and added a few girly touches. I have had these items for a while now, but I’ve included links to the ones still available:
- IKEA White SOCKERÄRT Vase 16cm
- IKEA artificial flowers
- Bath & Body Works 3-Wick Candle in First Bloom
- Bath & Body Works 3-Wick Candle Sleeve in a tulip pattern
- Vintage porcelain tricket box from the shop Mom’s Treasures on Etsy (I keep some small jewelry items in here)
So far, I’ve filled up the first few shorter drawers with makeup and toiletry bags, and the taller bottom drawers with handbags and clutches. I’m really happy I opted for the larger unit!
In terms of organizing my makeup in the drawers, I purchase some of the VAMMEN Boxes with Lids in purple which I used to divide and hold my products.
I’m really pleased with how the organization turned out. It’s an easily customizable way to keep your products segmented.
I also picked up the VIKA AMON/VIKA ADILS Table in white which I will be using as a backdrop for product photography for the blog. It’s small, portable, and will be perfect for taking photos with natural light coming in from the floor-to-ceiling windows behind it.
That concludes my IKEA haul! What storage do you use for your makeup collection?
