IKEA Makeup Storage | Ideas You Just Have to Do
Makeup and beauty products are an investment. You should know that by now whenever you fork over the cash, right? Investments need to be taken cared of and when it comes to makeup, you have to store them properly. On top of that, you’d want your makeup haul to be organized as well, so you don’t have to keep digging through drawers everytime you need to use something. These IKEA makeup storage ideas are life-changing and you can thank me later. Check out below how you can do an IKEA makeup storage makeover without breaking a sweat!
1. ALEX Drawer Unit with 9 Drawers
IKEA’s ALEX drawer units is a huge fave for YouTube makeup vloggers and beauty bloggers alike. The 9-tier drawers is an amazing piece of furniture that can hold tons of makeup and beauty products. The best part of using this drawer unit is you can categorize your makeup as well for the eyes, lip, face, skincare, and etc.
2. MALM Dressing Table with LACK Shelves
Another favorite from the Swedish furniture brand is the MALM dressing table. Although the MALM looks very simple, owners love it for its versatility. Like in this case, you can pair the MALM dressing table with IKEA’s LACK wall shelves. You can use the MALM table as your vanity, use the drawers for storage and use the shelves for display and storage purposes as well. Now that’s what I call a vanity set up!
3. LINNMON Table Top with ALEX Drawers
So maybe you’re not a fan of the MALM dressing table, then I offer another great option for you. You can use the LINNMON table top and pair it with ALEX drawer units, 5-tier this time. It’s a bit similar to the IKEA makeup storage idea above, except with this one, you get easy and instant access to your makeup goodies right underneath your table top.
4. GRUNDTAL Rail and Containers
The GRUNDTAL rail and containers may be a staple in the kitchen, but it is by no means just going to stay there! We love the rail and container combo for makeup storage as well. Put your makeup brushes in there or maybe your eyebrow grooming kit, or anything that you need to quickly access. Best of all, it saves a lot of table space!
5. GODMORGON Box with Containers
The IKEA GODMORGON box with containers is an ideal makeup storage for those tiny goodies like lipsticks, pans, and pots. You can also store some of your makeup palettes here. This container is best placed on top of the table top or on a shelf.
6. SKURAR Plant Pot
L.O.V.E. I went to IKEA a few months ago and I’ve bought tons of SKURAR plants pots. And it’s not just for my miniature plants, I use it for my makeup brushes, combs, pens, and what-nots. These plant pots are so cute and so versatile that I just can’t have enough…and I know you won’t too!
Slay this glow goddess look this summer, why don’t you?
7. KOMPLEMENT Drawer with Glass Front
If you have wall shelves, then the KOMPLEMENT drawer with glass front is a good makeup storage idea for you. It’s the standard size so it’s most likely to fit any wall shelf at home. But what I really like about this one is the glass front as it helps me see the items easier and it looks so elegant sitting on my shelf too!
8. SOCKER Plant Pot with Holder
What’s with plant pots and makeup brushes? It appears that IKEA has another set of plant pots that makes for great makeup brushes storage as well. While the SKURAR is cuter than this SOCKER plant pots set, this is best for people who really need several containers for their brushes– all placed in one holder.
9. RASKOG Utility Cart
Do you find yourself moving around the house when doing your makeup? If you do, you definitely need the RASKOG Utility Cart! No more carrying boxes and containers of makeup products ladies, just push and pull this cart and your makeup will be with you wherever you go!
10. RIBBA Picture Ledge
Using a picture ledge as makeup storage is another ingenious idea. This RIBBA picture ledge is great for storing nail polish. But in my case, I use it for my lipsticks! This way, I can see my lipstick haul together, access them quickly, and save space on my table top and drawers too!
11. RATIONELL VARIERA Cutlery Trays
What about your drawers, you ask? How can you organize it? I suggest IKEA’s RATIONELL VARIERA Cutlery trays! Even though they’re primarily designed for your cutlery, as you can see, you can also use it as a makeup drawer organizer. Because here at Makeup Tutorials, we love making stuff multi-purpose!
12. BLOMSTER Bowl
And last but not least, I present to you the IKEA BLOMSTER bowl! Primarily intended for indoor plants, you can use this as your makeup brush storage too! Just fill the bowl with crystal fills and stick your makeup brushes in there! Smart huh?
