Make up storage & how I keep it clean

Howdy,

I am pretty minimalistic when it comes to my make up, like I am with my clothes, I only buy what I know I will love, use and enjoy.

Here is a picture of how I keep my makeup and you can see the things I reach for and use daily, I keep everything to hand. If something is hidden in a dark drawer I know I am going to forget about it and not use it as much. I see pictures and videos online about people washing their brushes, but do you ever see people cleaning their make up storage??? Dust and dirt gets everywhere and when applying things to your face you want to keep the area as clean as possible.

Here are the steps I take to clean my make up storage trays and it takes just 5-10 minutes to do.

A bowl of soapy warm water, cotton buds and an old but clean tea towel.

I love these cotton buds from Primark, they are excellent to help clean make up smudges. One end of the bud is rounded like a paddle and the other end comes to a point. Perfect if you have any under eye mistakes or if your mascara smudges.








Pointed bud perfect to reach all of the corners.

















When its clean I rinse it under the tap to wash away the bubbles, dry as best as you can using a micro fibre tea towel and leave upside down to dry completely.

















Here is the set of three large drawers, they all slide completely out making them easy to clean. Also very handy when looking at your products.
















Each drawer is quite deep and can hold many items.

















Always let them sit upside down to make sure they are fully dry before putting them back together and adding your products.














I got both of these storage pieces from John Lewis and they still look good as new many years on. I have just checked my shopping history of them and I have had these for 3 years, I have no complaints at all. The drawers are sturdy and look very well made, you even have tiny clear rubber feet to stop it from sliding around. By having clear drawers you can easily see all of the items you own and its a great way of making sure you are using everything. It also looks neat and tidy, which I love.
