Makeup Storage Ideas

Hello my loves!!! I hope you had a beautiful day. Today's post is about Makeup Storage. I love makeup and like all makeup lovers I have a lot of beauty products (we always want more, right?!), and I always try to find the best way to organize all those lippies, blushes, nail polishes...
Here are some ideas I wanted to share with you. Let's get inspired :)

The Vanity Tray:

 A vanity tray gives a touch of class to your vanity dresser, or bedside table.

You can put on it your favorite perfumes, a candle and some flowers...

 ...or your everyday makeup.

 It's a lovely way to display your favorite nail polishes also.

 So petty!!!

Perfect way to display your perfumes (this vanity tray is available on

This Anna Sui Makeup Tray is just so cute!!!

Acrylic Drawers for Makeup:

 Acrylic Storage Drawers by Muji.
(This one is on my wishlist!!!)

I love that they're clear, so you can see exactly what you have.

 Recycle old candle jars into makeup brush holders (this is genius!!! Love the idea. You can find a lot of DIY video on YouTube to do this)

Ikea Alex Drawer Unit:

A favorite among many beauty bloggers. Perfect for the serious makeup junkies ;p with 9 drawers there's enough space to store your makeup collection.

Nominated for the Liebster Award

Hey dolls, how are doing? I hope you're having a fabulous day :)
Today, I've been nominated by the very sweet Sara (from the blog Crime of Fashion), for the Liebster Award. A huge thanks to you babe :)
The Liebster Award has been created for new bloggers and bloggers with under 200 followers. The idea is to help promote their blog and to get to know each other; I think it's a great and super fun idea!!!

Rules are simple:
  1. You must answer the 11 questions set by the blogger who nominated you.
  2. You yourself must then pick 11 blogs with under 200 followers to also be nominated for the award.
  3. You must think up 11 questions for these nominees to answer and also notify them.
  4. You must link back to the blogger who nominated you for the award.
Here are the answers to the question I was asked:
  1. The one makeup step you never skip? Applying mascara.
  2. Your favorite fashion blogger? Dsaks In Style, she is amazing!!!
  3. Your favorite fashion item for this Summer? Beach Kaftans.
  4. Your favorite TV show? Sex and The City is my all time favorite, and I really miss this show :'(
  5. Your favorite makeup brand? I can't choose only one, let's say my 3 favorites are YSL, Estee Lauder and Guerlain.
  6. You are invited to a party, you don't know the dress code, what do you decide? Taking the risk to be overdressed or underdressed? I would wear skinny jeans, a blazer and high heels, it's casual chic and you can wear this in all occasions.
  7. A foreign language you wish you could speak? Italian...
  8. Real or fake lashes? Real everyday, and Fake for occasions.
  9. What do you love the most about blogging? Sharing things I love and getting to know people who share the same interests...
  10. A blogger you'd like to be friend with? Dsaks In Style.
  11. The biggest fashion/beauty/hairstyle mistake you ever did? I would say a hair mistake for me is cutting my bangs, I'm always excited to do it and then regret it...
Thanks again Sara, I really enjoyed doing this :)

And my nominations are:
And my questions to you lovelies:
  1. What's your favorite fragrance?
  2. If money wasn't a problem what fashion items would you buy?
