Thus I finally bit the bullet and decided it was time to get organised, declutter what I don't use or what is out of date, and make my favourite, everyday makeup items easier to find and access.
I scoured through Instagram & Pinterest looking at makeup organisation methods I could adopt.
I decided to get an acrylic makeup organiser. Firstly because it could contain a lot of items in a relatively compact space and secondly because I liked how I'd be able see the contents without having to open any drawers or cupboards.
I explored ebay trying to find a bargain acrylic makeup organiser in a style and size I wanted. I looked into the acrylic stationery organisers at Officeworks as a cheaper option.
In the end however I decided to splurge and get the acrylic makeup organiser I fell in love with at first sight on The Makeup Box Shop's website.
In addition to The Makeup Box Shop's acrylic organiser I also purchased an Allure Cotton Pad Dispenser from Howards Storage World and the IKEA candle holders and pot plant holders for all my brushes and lip liners etc.
All of The Makeup Box Shop's makeup organisers come in either "original" style with small rectangular flat handles or "glamour" style with diamond shaped handles. As I love a touch of glamour, bling and sparkle, for the miniscule extra cost of $4, I went for the glamour version!
I had been a bit worried about whether my organiser would get damaged during postage but I needn't have worried. The makeup organiser arrived really well packaged in bubble wrap with extra foam strategically placed around the handles and edges. This package was then encased in a firmly fitting foam box which was then encased in a cardboard box. Australia Post could have played football with this box and the contents wouldn't have been damaged!
