I LOVE tidy shit. I don’t always love tidying but this is therapy! Here are my top tips for getting your Ikea Alex 9 Drawers in tip top shape. I use mine for makeup storage but you could use these for anything from stationary, office and homeware or baby bits.
Any hoo, heres how I’ve tidied up my drawers.
Two essentials, 50p cutlery organiser from Ikea, fits perfect! And, PUPPY PADS, this will keep your drawers lined and protected from makeup spills.
I separated my makeup into the top 5 drawers. I’ve got an every day drawer, face base, face powders, lip drawer and eye drawer. Palettes are tucked at the back of each drawer, and each tray is organised into sections e.g primers, bb creams, foundation, highlighter, blusher, contour, glosses, mattes, nude lips, colour lips etc.
I’ve organised the deep drawers in to hair products, hair tools, skin and body care. I didn’t find any storage organisation to fit, but I’ve lined the drawers because hell hath no fury like false tan spillages on white.
On top I’ve got 4 makeup brush pots: a liquid face brush pot, big powder face brushes, little powder face brushes and eyeshadow brushes. I’d say it looks pretty cute, nice, tidy and clean. I’ll be sure to keep it that way. LOL.
How do you keep your beauty bits tidy? Hope I’ve inspired you, either to get organised or to shop – both are very very important at all times. Let me know how you enjoyed my post on organising your Alex 9 Drawers and tell me what your top organisation tips are.
