How I Store My Everyday Makeup

Getting ready in the morning can be such a faff especially when I am in a rush, and usually I am in a rush 99% of the time. With the amount of makeup I own (as you can imagine) it can be quite difficult finding certain products. Especially items you use on a daily basis. For me, the easiest way to do this is to simply have a stash where I keep my most needed everyday items.

Prior to how I store my makeup now, I was using my personalised makeup bag which was gifted to me at Christmas:

Annie Makeup Bag

Whilst I love this so much, it was still taking me ages to find anything in the morning and I would more than likely end up emptying everything out onto my bed and getting makeup all over my bed covers. Now, I use my personalised makeup bag solely for travelling and weekends away (it still gets compliments, it’s SO cute!)

Recently whilst running some errands I popped into Primark (it’s been a while) and found this cute clear vanity box for only £7. It was reduced from £14 which is quite the bargain! It’s Pink too, so you know that immediately caught my attention.

This clear vanity box is portable so you can carry it around should you wish to, and what I like about it, is that it’s made from clear plastic and you can see everything in it! Which means… (drumroll please) this makes finding my makeup in the morning much more easier and quicker and boy has it helped. I am not in a mad panic trying to find my makeup items and everything is just laid and organised nicely for me.

It has 3 compartments – 2 at the top which open up to reveal the main compartment which is at the bottom.

This is a steal at £7 and I would have been crazy to walk away from it. I wanted to share this idea of storing my daily makeup with you because it’s really helped me and saved me so much time!

What’s your makeup storage like for everyday items?
