I had some recent requests from readers and friends who were curious as to how my dressing table looks and as to how to store makeup and skincare items. Reader Gette wrote to me:-
Ever since I’ve gotten into this cosmetics thing, my bathroom shelf is overflowing with my skincare, make-up and accessories. I’m pretty sure you have more things than I do, so how do you store your stuff?
Incidentally, just yesterday, Syen of Soloverly asked to see what my bathroom cabinet looked like. I don’t store my cosmetics or skincare in the bathroom but in my bedroom on/in a dresser. On a personal note I do not recommend the bathroom for storing cosmetics if you also use it to shower – the heat and high humidity can cause products to spoil. So, with the pressing requests, here’s a combined post showing you roughly what my dresser looks like (when its neat and clean) and how I store my makeup and skincare.
My dresser is part of a bedroom set that I picked up from a furniture store that promptly burnt down 2 weeks later. Ah yep! Insurance I have no doubt 😛 Anyway, I chose it for the many drawers it had and the large mirror it came with.
Most of my cosmetics are stored in storage boxes on top of the dresser which makes things very cramped and not pretty. However, its practical and I tend to go for practical over pretty. Practical means I have less to dust as boxes are easier to wipe down 😛
So ends the story of how my dresser looks – onto how I actually store my makeup, skincare and etc… 😉
