Current Lemming : Ikea ALEX 6 drawer unit

Hey my lovely girls! :) About 2 weeks ago it was my nameday (we celebrate that in Greece) and I was wondering what kind of gift my boyfriend could buy me. Makeup? Yes, it's really exciting when you get new things to try out, but I already have so much stuff, so I had to restrain myself and think of something else. How about a new storage solution for my makeup? Yes, yes, yes! As you can see I store most of my makeup in clear sterilite drawers, which are handy only if you own 10 single eyeshadows, 3 blushes and 5 lipglosses, otherwise they're not very practical, because you can't see at once exactly what you have. So, here's the storage solution I have found :


It's from Ikea, it's called ALEX and as you can see it has 6 drawers. I'm thinking about organizing my makeup like this :

  1. face stuff (foundations, concealers, powders, bronzes, highlighters, blushes)
  2. eye stuff (neutral eyeshadows, black and brown eyeliners, mascaras)
  3. eye stuff (colorful eyeshadows, colorful eyeliners)
  4. lip stuff (lipsticks, lipglosses, lipliners, lipbalms)
  5. palettes (big ones)
  6. various things (nail polishes, false eyelashes, beauty tools)

Pretty neat huh? ;) What do you think about it? Do you own this storage unit? Please let me know about your thoughts on it in the comments section below! :)
