I was shocked how little space my lipsticks took up in the drawer below. Previously spilling out of their home in the Laura Ashley drawers, I was startled to discover I had accumulated over 40. However, once I placed them neatly in this drawer, it looked as though I barely owned any so I can use this as an excuse to buy more! I keep my favourite colours at the front and place the brighter, less used shades at the back.
Lip glosses have been placed in the drawer below, again utilising an old drawer from my previous storage.
On the other side I've just placed a few of my favourite candles and my makeup brushes in a little shabby chic pot which my mum bought for me (part of a set of 3).
I'm a bit concerned as the dressing table only just contains my makeup collection. I think it's inevitable it's going to increase (although I already have too much) so I shall have to be ruthless and get rid of anything I haven't used in a while. I love how organised everything is now and would like to keep it that way. After years of being an untidy student I am finally striving for neatness and orderliness in my life!
