Makeup Table, Storage, and Collection

This is my makeup table as many of you may already know since I could not find the style of makeup table I wanted to match our house i decided to make my own makeup table so that it would match the rest of our furniture style. I also choose to add tiffany blue as accent colors to some of my makeup table pieces so that the color scheme would fit in with the house. For the makeup table I took a sofa table that matched our furniture, found a bench that matched the furniture than added a nice mirror. I'd say my makeup table is now 99% complete.There are just a few blue accents I want to add, and mainly that's just paint the box shelves tiffany blue and maybe the jewelry box tiffany blue, or accent it some how with tiffany blue so there is a bit more blue and less black. Overall I'm very pleased with how my makeup table turned out. As for some of the photos my camera flash washed parts of some of the photos out so I'm sorry for that but you still get the idea.

Since my Naked palettes was too large for my palette display box and I wanted a more predominate place to put them since they are my favorite palettes, I found this letter holder at a dollar store to keep them in on top of my Jewelry Box. As for the Jewelry Box, there isn't anything in it yet and I doubt I use it as a jewelry box, probably will put something makeup related in it when i figure out what I want to go in it. These brushes here are ELF, Sephora and Urban Decay. The other brush set displayed on my table (not shown in this photo) is just drugstore brands, nothing wonderful.

I found this nice little mirrored perfume try at a local store so my husband picked it up for me as one of my Christmas gifts. I really like it it just fits my big perfume bottles. I also have a Marc Jacobs Daisy rollerball in behind some of the bottles. The bigger bottles of perfume are; Burberry Summer, Juicy Couture Viva La juicy, Vera Wang Lovestruck, Juicy Couture the original scent, and Versace Bright Crystal.

I found these wall box shelves one day when I was out doing some shopping and I decided to pick them up for my makeup table. At the time I had no idea what to do with them but after working with them a bit I found out they make wonderful palette holders and displays. So I took all my palettes that would fit and lined them up. I also took my Flowerbomb hair mist box and displayed it in the smallest box and I put a few more palettes on top that didn't fit into the palette box. I think I might paint the outsides of these boxes tiffany blue when it gets warm enough out to do some painting. Palettes include: Stila, Sephora, Urban Decay, Kat Von D, Lorac, and too Faced

This box just contains some smaller perfumes I bought recently, my Flowerbomb hair mist and a extra container for brushes.

This is my Orchid I decided to pick up the other day while I was out. I had been wanting a 30$ Blue orchid but when i went to get it they had sold out of them and took the display case out. Figuring they wouldn't get any more blue orchids in I went to a different place in search of a orchid and ran into this beauty for only 7 bucks. So this pretty little thing sits on top of my makeup storage stand along with a white candle.

This is my makeup storage stand type thing. My husband does not want any plastic in our home (granted I did talk him into two acrylic pieces that he hates and to be honest I'm not that fond of) so he found me this nice wooden storage stand. It used to be pink as some of you may know but he painted it tiffany blue for me and it works wonderfully for makeup storage.

In this area of my makeup storage tower there isn't much just my huge Too Faced palette that wouldn't fit anywhere else. Three small palettes from Sephora, Too Faced and Stila. Than in the white basket there is several eye primers which include Urban Decay, Too Faced, Benefit, and Lorac.

In this area of the makeup tower these are all of my single eyeshadows, eye liners, and mascaras. As far as my single eyeshadows go I have MAC, Sephora, Stila,  Bare Essentials, some NYX ones on the bottom and a few other various brands. My mascaras are Benefit, and YSL. My eyeliners are Sephora, Urban Decay, Bare Essentials, Stila and I think I might have a couple of other brands in there as well.

This is my blush, bronzer and highlight area. To the left is my bronzer area and those include Benefit, Lorac, NARS, ELF, Physicians Formula, and 1 Rimmel. Next to those on top I have my Benefit boxed powders. Next to those in the blue box is my highlighters, as you can see those are NARS, Benefit and 1 Hard Candy. In the long green box are my higher end blushes. Those are MAC, NARS, Tarte, Cargo, The Balm and 1 Too Faced Pink Leopard which for me is really a highlight so it shouldn't even be there, not sure why it is. In the bottom green box are my drugstore blushes which I don't have any of and those include physicians formula, nyx, ulta, Maybelline, and Neutrogena. and directly to the left of that is a bottle of benefit posietint.

This is my face area where my primers, foundations, powders, and concealers go. Primers are in a white basket to the top left, they include Smashbox, Korres, Benefit, Sephora, and makeup forever mist & fix. Drugstore foundations are in the green basket and those are just from ulta. Next to that is my benefit confessions of a concealaholic. Down from that is Urban Decay De Slick and a Silta brightening powder. In the blue basket is more drugstore foundations and those include Maybelline, L'Oreal, and Max Factor. and finally my powders are to the left on the bottom and those are all drugstore and those include Maybelline, Ulta, Rimmel, and ELF

This is my lip area of my makeup storage tower. I have a little bit of everything in here. I have the Buxom rockstar lip set which is the red box. Chapsticks and lip balm are next to that. The two plastic green bins on the bottom that are side by side have my higher end lipglosses and lipsticks which include Stila, Smashbox, Sephora, NARS, Tarte, Lorac, Buxom, and so on. The two top bins that are side by side on is blue the other green hold drugstore lipglosses and lipsticks the green basket holds nothing but NYX lipglosses, the blue holds several different brands that include NYX, ULTA, and others.

There are candles that sit on top of my beauty bookcase. They used to be silver but my husband painted them tiffany blue so now they are more for looks than burning but whatever.

This is my beauty bookcase

The first shelf has nothing but body sprays on it and there are tons of them and all from either Bath & Body Works or Victoria's Secret

Second shelf on the left is the only acrylic storage thing that i actually display and to be honest I don't care that much for it I don't like how it limits what can go where. Any way in the acrylic storage is a large palette from Sephora, tons of samples, kabuki brushes, small lotions, tools, and tissues. In front of it is 3 small CLEAN perfumes. Next to that is a container of blushish rocks holding my empty MAC containers until I have enough to B2M. Next to that is 1 lotion and 2 deorderants and than some small body sprays from B&BW and V.S.

This self is pretty mcuh empty...sorry for the bad photo the flash messed it up. So i have 2 baskets, a empty perfume bottle, a ton of antibacs and a extra brush holder.

a better photo of some of the previous items

My nail polish collection is on the fourth shelf and there is a little bit of everything here. Orly, China Galze, OPI for Sephora, NARS, Sally Hansen, ESSIE, Pure ICE, ELF, and Nails INC as well as others.

And last on the bottom self are all my tanning products which is mostly from Hawaiian Tropic, my lotions, shower gels, hair supplies, and eye care. Lotions are mostly Bath & Body Works and Victoria's Secret. Everything else is just a jumble of brands.

That is all of my makeup storage, collection and my complete makeup table to this point. If you all have any questions or want some storage ideas feel free to leave a comment and let me know and i'll do my best to help.


  1. I can't tell you how much I love this post! I love seeing other people's makeup storage. I also love how your palettes looks like storybooks!

  2. WOW. Your makeup is stored so beautifully! I wish mine looked half as good as yours :) I don't have much space at all, so everything is all in plastic drawers. I loved this post!

  3. That is very impressive! You are so organized.. everything looks so much nicer than what mine looks like. This definitely gave me some inspiration though so thanks! Great post :)

  4. I love all your ideas & a helpful husband as well. One thing I'm battling with is finger nail polish. Yours looks like wood & a desktop thingy. Did you make it or buy it? You can see each bottle clearly.... Love it!

  5. Hi Anon, this is the owner of Glamorous Addiction and I saw you had some questions, so I thought i'd help you out. My "mail polish display" was actually a spice holder from Wal-mart. We found it in the kitchen area several years back and my husband stained it for me. Nail polish was always hard for me as well. When I was looking for something I never could find anything, that wasn't plastic. My husband and I saw the spice holder and decided to try it, and it worked at the time. Now depending on what your looking for I think there are lots of options these days for displaying/storing nail polish. I've seen some pretty good ones on Pinterest, as well as on ebay and amazon. In fact I think I may have posted a few I found the other day on one of my Pinterest boards called Makeup Storage & Display. Here is my Pinterest link if your interested. Hope I was able to help!
