If you’re addicted to makeup like I am, you know how easily it can be to get lost in makeup clutter. Even if you have a small makeup collection, having an organizer or makeup storage system that works for you can make storing your products so much easier (and let’s face it: it looks way nicer!)

As the beauty industry has grown into the giant it is today, there are so many more options available for makeup storage. Unfortunately, most of the stores I’ve been to charge ridiculous amounts of money for the same products you can find on Amazon –  for a fraction of the price.

 

I’ve scoured the depths of Amazon to find you the best affordable makeup storage organizers and makeup holders!

So how do you know what type of makeup organizer to get? There’s an organizer for seemingly every type of makeup. Lipsticks, palettes, eyeshadows, powders, and more! The kind you’re looking for really depends on how much makeup you have and how you’re looking to store it.

Drawers:

These are one of the most common types because you can put nearly anything in them! Lipsticks, eye products, whatever you desire. I have the one on the left that I use to store the products I reach for daily, or products I want to use more!

Have a small makeup collection? That’s completely okay! You can neatly store all your makeup goodies in units like these.

Palette organizers:

This is an organizer I’m missing in my collection and will be ordering immediately! I love the idea of storing your favourite, or special palettes on top of a shelf. Whether it’s eyeshadow palettes, face palettes, etc. it’s a great way to have your palettes easily accessible!

Lipstick Organizers

These are one of the most common types of makeup organizers, but they come in an array of shapes and sizes. I love the left and middle, as they look so much nicer and take up less space. It’s great to store your lip products in holders like these, as it allows you to easily see what colours you’ve got!

 

 

Drawer Organizers

If you’re makeup collector or store your makeup in drawers, you will definitely want to invest in drawer organizers. These are the best way to keep your products organized and your drawers tidy! I like to separate my products by type – for example, I’ll have all my cream eyeshadows in one drawer organizer unit, powder eyeshadow’s in another, etc.

For this reason, these are seriously one of the best ways to keep your collection tidy and easily accessible!

 

Makeup organizing is one of my favourite things – so I often struggle with always putting things away. I’ve recently been trying to declutter my makeup collection and get rid of the products I no longer like or use.

You can take a look inside my makeup collection and see what products I’m getting rid of here! 

What are your favourite ways to store your makeup products?

I recently got to glam up my friend Jess, so we went for a bronze, Kardashian inspired glam – a sultry, smokey bronzed look paired with a nude lip is very reminiscent of Kim Kardashian’s makeup looks around 2014/2015. This type of a look is what inspired the makeup I did for Jess:

It’s glam but not overly dramatic, and the gold/bronze tones really accentuate Jess’s gorgeous blue eyes!

This is more of a chatty get ready with us style video as opposed to a tutorial, but I included each product used and a brief description of each step!
We hope you enjoy!

Jess’s channel is currently under construction, so I’ll share that with you as soon as it’s up! Stay tuned for our cooking video!

 

Make sure to read my previous post about the new Youtube updates, and how small bloggers like myself will be affected – and also how these giveaways are my way of thanking everyone for helping to support me! Thank you so much to everyone who entered my previous giveaway!

For my third giveaway, one winner will receive a brand new, full-size refillable Angel Eau De Parfum from Thierry Mugler.

Angel launched in 1992, and revolutionised the fragrance industry. It’s truly one of the most unique fragrances on the market.

Classified as an oriental vanilla, it has notes of bergamot, vanilla, red berries, caraway, nutmeg, sandalwood, patchouli, tonka bean, praline, and more. It’s sweet and strong, lasting all day long due to the high concentration of perfume oil in every drop!

Here’s a tip for the Mugler fragrances: do not spray multiple sprays directly on the skin. It’s simply way too strong when applied this way as the perfumes are so concentrated. Instead, spray a little in the air before you get dressed, and walk through it!

I’m also including a mini sample – that way you can try it before opening to see if its the right fragrance for you!

To enter, all you have to do is:

  1. Be subscribed to my YouTube channel

  2. Be following me on Instagram

  3. Comment on this post or on my Instagram post letting me know you’ve entered!

This giveaway is open worldwide! I will be contacting the winner personally.

Stay tuned for my next giveaway!

I’m sure many of you have heard of the new Youtube update – which will demonetize and lose the YouTube Partnership features for anyone with less than 1000 subscribers.

I went into full detail in my previous post, which you can read here. 
For a microblogger like myself trying to turn this into a career, this is really frustrating and disheartening. It means we will have to work even harder to be able to access basic features that we used to automatically have. It means we won’t be able to earn any income until we reach the threshold and reapply.

In the midst of this, I realized now is the perfect time to give away the products that have been sitting there neglected and unused – giveaways I’ve been meaning to do for months now.  A perk of working in the cosmetic industry is you get quite a bit of free product – product I just don’t use or need. I would much rather give these products to those who will truly be able to use and love them.

This is a small way for me to show my appreciation for all of you who have supported me, and those new to my channel. I’m so close to 1000 followers and keeping my Youtube Partnership – if you’d like to help me out, these giveaways are the best way I can say thank you!

Throughout the next month, I will be giving away ALL these goodies and more to you lovely people! All I ask in return is that you’re subscribed to me on YouTube and Instagram.

Fall is already passing by at the speed of light. While I always wish September lasted longer, I couldn’t be happier about it being October. Halloween to Christmas is my absolute favourite time of the year –  Not to mention I leave for Disneyworld with Claudia in 6 days!

Here’s what my month looked like on Instagram!
