So last week I told you I was considering a few options for extra makeup storage space. I'd been considering the Ikea Helmer, and after checking it out firsthand, I decided I liked it enough to bring it home.
And so now, my dressing table has a little partner-in-crime. I do love my makeup corner.
To be honest, the Helmer is a lot smaller than I thought it would be. But don't be fooled, it can store a great deal of stuff in there. I found the depth of the drawers to be quite ideal as you can see in the photos below.
I haven't completely revamped my makeup organisation from before I bought the Helmer, most of it is still stored in my dresser, but I've re-adjusted some products into my new drawers.
Blushes: Most of my blushes are still stored in my makeup mobile rack, and some are in my dresser drawer. I'm leaving most of it as is, as I'll be moving in about a year, and I'm a little lazy of having to pack and repack later. Ah well.
Lipsticks: I'm moved almost all my lipsticks into the Helmer so that I can see them all at a go. It's easier that way. Lipglosses are still in the dresser though as the Helmer's drawers are not deep enough for the glossies, and I prefer them standing. OCD? Perhaps just a bit. *winks*
Eyeshadows: I've also moved some of my eyeshadows over. I had just picked up the white trays from Daiso, and they fit the width of the drawers almost perfectly. Also, guess what? They're stackable. I really love Daiso.
I also love that the top of my dresser is now slightly more de-cluttered. Believe me, it was more cluttered before. The mobile rack is still there storing heaps (that alone would normally be more than enough for non-makeup crazed folks), and I've added a pink Glis box on my dresser to store my lipbalms.
And yes, I use toilet paper instead of tissue paper because I find that I don't actually need such a big sheet of tissue most of the time. And toilet papers are actually quite the perfect size per sheet. Uhh... save the trees?
So there you have it, a peek into my world. Have a great weekend!
