Beauty Clinic: Help me organise my kit!

Q. I adore make up and have a LOT!! I have a professional type box, but find it annoyingly fiddly for a busy mum on the go. I also like to be able to see all my products or I forget I have them! Any ideas for attractive storage? A. That is such a good question.  And looking at the products sprawling around our shelves and windowsills, it is relevant to us too.  (And most women we wager…)

Amazon Deluxe OrganiserAmazon offers a clear acrylic Deluxe Cosmetic Organiser with Drawer, plus trays and dedicated lipstick slots – the works in fact. It is 32 cm wide by 15 cm front to back, and 9 cm high.  Reviews vary so it is worth going online to see if any of the comments apply to you.

One reviewer found exactly the right buildable items at Muji.  One warning: do not use the Acrylic Storage option you find on the Google page (the links don't work properly) – go to, then hit Storage and you will find Acrylic Storage.  There are masses of options for boxes and dividers.  Click here to take a look.
