Makeup Spring Cleaning! (+ New Makeup Storage)

Makeup Storage (Ikea MALM)

Over the past few months I've gradually de-cluttered my makeup stash; binning old and well out of date products and passing on some other, lesser loved, items to friends and family. It can be difficult to do, but it feels great when it's done!

If you follow me on Instagram you'll have seen that on a recent trip to IKEA, I finally picked up the well-loved and well-blogged about MALM desk (€100, see here). The inserts are also from IKEA (Antonius X 3, €2 each - see here). Like many makeup-lovers I've lusted after this desk for a long time. Makeup is my main indulgence and I've never had the pleasure of setting myself up with proper storage. It also means I'll be using more, and forgetting less, of what I already have; at least in theory!

I spent last Friday cobbling the whole thing together (thank God for Junior Cert Woodwork..) and found the whole process really enjoyable! In terms of the organisation aspect, it's a work in progress, but when I'm satisfied I'll be sure to put together a makeup storage/organisation video of people are interested.


It felt great to cull some of my overflowing collection and re-organise what I've got! 
Have you been spring cleaning your makeup lately? I highly recommend it!
