A few weeks ago I decided it was finally time to sort out my make up storage, it was starting to take over my room and was becoming a quite a hassle to get ready. In true Blogger style I made a dash to Ikea to pick up the very famous "Alex" 9 Drawer Unit. I'd love to sit here and say I put it together myself but that would be a lie, I posses no diy skills whatsoever! So my lovely mum offered and I gratefully accepted.
Just a warning, this post might be quite long and picture heavy, so grab a cuppa.
The Alex was the perfect fit for me as I manged to store all my make make up, plus a few other bits and pieces, flawlessly. The drawers are just the right size, the first five are shallow and the last 4 are a little deeper. Right, enough of my waffling, let me show you what's inside, draw by draw.

Meet one of my most colourful draws, here we have all types of blushes, cream powder, mineralized plus bronzers & highlighters. All housed in, you guessed it, Muji Desk Organizers.

I do like my eyeshadows, so on the right we have 4 Medium Organizers which contain my Cream Shadows, Mac Eyeshadows, Nars duos ect. On the left in a Small Organizer are my NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils. Stacked at the back are my palettes, we have Urban Decay, Stila & Wet & Wild.

I definitely recommend this unit it's 100% worth the price (£90) in my opinion, plus it looks cute too, which is very important to us beauty bloggers, lets be honest haha. Extra blogger snaps if you can spot a certain TV show on in the background haha.
