I have been reading all the threads on how everyone stores their over abundance of makeup and skin care Smiley Happy

 

I see a lot of the ladies use the Alex 9 Drawer from Ikea. I searched their site however I didn't see any pictures of the drawers open.

 

Do you use smaller containers inside each drawer for lipsticks,eyeshadow, foundation etc? How do you organize inside the drawers?

 

I also saw an Alex on wheels with 6 drawers. Anyone have that one?

 

I would love to see pictures of the inside of your drawers if you're willing to share.

 

EDIT: I don't know of any drawers similar to Alex, so if you have other brands please share.

I have the alex nine drawer and I def need organizers inside my drawers (i have 3 acrylic lipstick holders for lipsticks) and other storage organizers I bought were at TJmaxx. I found a set of different sized mini acrylic containers for $12.99 and I put my blush, foundation ,etc in them. The picture below is a Tjmaxx organizer that I hold some of my setting powders in.

Im not sure if I'll buy another nine drawer (I need more makeup storage)… but I think buying two six drawers is a good idea - minus the wheels. and then stack them on top of each other.

I was looking at the 6 drawer but I wasn't sure I wanted wheels. Sounds like you don't have to attach the wheels if you don't want to.

Wow! I envy that blogger's beautifully organized collection!

Re: Alex drawers....photos please :)

I'm thinking about buying one too.  Search for it on you tube and you'll find tons of people doing videos showing their storage organization.  Even better than pictures!

I don't know why I didn't think of that when I use YouTube for makeup tutorials all the time.

 

Which one were you looking to purchase?
