Wednesday! Cleanup day! Everything is-better-Day! Okay, I’m lying a bit now. I have official holidays, eat fresh Croatian peaches and treat myself not only, but TWO glasses of iced rosé per day.
I also do some work, and hopefully TOTALLY INSPIRING for you – with an updated post that originally went live almost five years ago on Hey Pretty and is one of the most widely read. Are you ready for some Make-Up-Lover-OrdnungsPorn?
Today, we’re just starting to get down the ante, because today’s post has been kicked off the online article “24 Life-Changing Ways to Store Your Beauty Products” on MarieClaire.com – though my life has not been significantly changed, nor have I started, my old ones To empty magazine boxes, you superlatively-horny Americans, you!
And … THE INTERNET IS BIG, DARLING! Sixteen hours and felt 350 cat movies later I’m ready:
No way! A cake stand as a presentation plate for your most beautiful perfumes!
There’s still room behind the bathroom door, is not it? Et voilà, your new hairstyle station, thanks to pocket storage!
Mirrored Make-Up Boxes by Pottery Barn (available only in the US) starting at $ 45.00
… but you can also get the look at H & M or Zara Home, as with me dihei – visible in my “Bathroom Tour” on Instagram:

Your best friend, if you have a large drawer for your make-up storage available? Drawer dividers and storage systems perfectly illustrated here:

The idea of using the back of your bathroom door is also familiar to other Pinterest disciples, in the case of:
Shoe Rack for Makeup Storage (via Pinterest)
… and Beautify in the UK offers this clever solution if you have little space on your make-up table:
Beautify Rotating Make-Up Organizer, about 30 francs
SORRY, I KNOW. This is nasty, louder to look for products that you do not get here in Switzerland. That’s why we’re looking at our favorite yellow/blue living giant, okay?
Beauty blogger Who is Mocca has rebuilt the cool trolley to the beauty station, gugg:
RASKOG Seriverwagen, 59.95 francs
Or, alternatively, everything nicely stowed in drawers:
GODMORGON Box with cover by IKEA, transparent, set of 5 (14.95 Francs)
Not bad … but MUJI goes one step further:
The Japanese / Global Schlicht department store delivers one of the best – and most comprehensive – make-up storage solutions ever … and finally e bitz is available in Switzerland, thanks to a pop-up store in the Glattzentrum (and hopefully from the fall of 2019 onwards) Shop there!).
MUJI make-up storage made of acrylic, almost 65 different parts (from approx. 2 Euro)
Here also a possibility of implementation with the MUJI elements of Sophie’s make-up …
… and they are just a DREAM, as you can see in the clip of I Covet Thee!
Here are some cool suggestions:
Stick together beautiful, flat-walled glasses with hot glue and pile them up, gugg nevertheless:

The step-by-step tutorial can be found in the link above, and there is also a YouTube clip (right here).
And in the case I NEVER LISTEN, you just throw your beautiful lipsticks and eyeshadows into the bathroom drawer, okay?
If it were up to me – and my bathroom was big enough, I would have fallen for the blogger I Covet Thee’s MUJI solution (from the clip above) … and you?
