Slowly but surely my new “beauty room” has been coming to life. There’s still quite a bit of work to do on the other half of the room, but my desk is coming together! Today I want to share with you how I store my makeup and how to make your makeup desk look luxurious!
Heads up — this post is filled with a load of pictures and whole lot of content. I am going to link where everything is from + add some of my favorite beauty products in each of my drawers!
This style of desk is pretty popular in the beauty world as it is semi-inexpensive to create + it is so great for makeup storage. It’s not an actual desk, it’s two individual drawer unites with a table top that I purchased separately.
I love these units because the drawers are very long making it easy to store things in. My chair is from Wayfair. I personally thought it was a tad pricey but I thought it fit so well with this style desk and gave it a dainty look, so I went with it!

I like to keep the top of my desk simple but definitely want to make use of that huge table top. On the left side I put my double-sided mirror light, my notebook + my makeup brushes. Behind all of that, I have a vase with some faux flowers! The notebook/agenda I use is from Kate Spade and everyday I like to either jot some notes down or make sure I have added everything in my calendar! The little jars that are holding my makeup brushes are from Target, they were on clearance! ($3 each!) A very simple + inexpensive way to give a luxurious look to your desk!

On the right side of my desk is my pride and joy. My lipstick collection. Some lip products are in boxes but I put my favorites out on my desk! I have the clear 36 piece lipstick holder to the right. In the middle, a small makeup organizer that holds 12 lipsticks but has 3 drawers underneath! To the left is a taller lipgloss holder that is perfect for storing longer lip products!

Could I have more crap!? LOL! Do you see how much you can fit inside these drawers?
Drawer #1 is designated for me eyes + eyebrows! I have all of my eyeliners, mascaras, brow products, eye primers and some individual eyeshadows.
Drawer #2 is boring and just holds all of my eye products!
Drawer #3 is one of my favorite drawers because it holds all of my skincare products! I use at least 8-10 items from this drawer in the morning and at the end of night so keeping it separate from everything else is important for me!
Drawer #4 is all of my body products! All of my lotions and hand creams are in here with some body scrubs.

The right side of my desk is a lot more fun than the left! This side hold majority of my makeup and more fun products!
Drawer #1 IS MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE DRAWER. This holds all of my foundation, tinted moisturizers, concealers, beauty blenders, a Chanel bronzer, setting powders, and setting sprays! Maybe I just love love this drawer because its visually appealing but it truly holds some of my absolute favorite beauty products!
Drawer #2 is so fun because it hold all of my eyelashes in the back, all of my bronzers, individual blushes, my powder and cream highlighters, hair ties, bobby pins and eyelash glue.
Drawer #3 is only for my palettes! And let me tell you, this depth and height of this drawer is the perfect size or makeup palettes. I have all of my eyeshadow palettes, contour palettes, and blush palettes in here.
Drawer #4 is all of my miscellaneous things! I already use the 5th drawer on both sides as junk drawers, but this drawer is hold everything that just does not have a home! It holds things such as nail polish remover, self tanner, deodorant, brush/jewelry cleaner + so much more.

So that is how I store the thousands of products I have! IKEA for the win!
My one question is, WHERE can I get some inexpensive clear bins for the deep drawers? I would love some tips on how to improve my storage!
