My Dressing Table & Make Up Storage

I love reading other people's posts about their make-up storage so thought why not write my own?! If you follow me on Instagram or if you're a regular reader of my blog then you've probably seen my dressing table before in posts such as Our London Flat and What's On My Dressing Table, but I never get bored of re-arranging it and taking photos of it. I try to keep my dressing table as tidy as possible and love having fresh flowers on there. I have a bit of a thing for displaying flowers in Chanel bags so that's what I've done with the beautiful tulips in these pictures. 

I store all of my everyday make-up in my Macy's cosmetics bag that I got when I went to New York a couple of years ago. I love having little trinkets and memories on my dressing table and I also have a snow globe from Henri Bendels in New York. Next to my everyday make-up bag I have a couple of everyday skincare items such as face creams and face masks. I keep my brushes in a pen pot holder that I got from Paperchase and it's ideal.

My dressing table has two small drawers either side of the mirror and then a larger drawer underneath that is split into 3 compartments. I use these drawers to keep things that I use often, but not everyday. The drawer on the right of my mirror stores all my expensive nail varnishes such as Chanel and Dior, and the one on the left has my other nail varnishes and a couple of lipsticks. 

Pretty much everything else goes in the big drawer underneath! I recently had a clear out of this drawer which made me feel loads better and meant I could actually find more of my products. In here I have loads of hand creams (L'Occitane addict much?), skin care bits and bobs as well as some of my higher end products and palettes - YSL, Burberry, ABH etc. Unfortunately I don't have enough space on my dressing table to store everything so I've got some additional storage boxes and baskets where I keep everything else! What are your top tips for storing your make-up? 


  1. Such pretty storage! I love how you've kept the cute Chanel bottles around <3

  2. Gorgeous dressing table area, I love snooping around what other peoples bedrooms look like! Everyone is so different and it reflects everyones tastes so well :) x

  3. Your dressing table space is so beautiful! I love the idea of using a Chanel bag to put flowers in...very creative! This has given me inspiration as I'm redecorating my room at the minute and I'm reluctant to buy to ever so popular Malm dressing table from Ikea! xxx

  4. Such a gorgeous dressing table and what a cute idea to put flowers in a Chanel bag! I love seeing how others store their makeup. :)

    I keep most of my makeup in a 9 drawer unit from IKEA which helps keep all my products organized and beauty area clutter free. My most used/everyday products sit on top of it in acrylic storage which I love.
