How i organise my make up at uni!

Hi guys! I didn't think i'd be able to get this post up for you today. I've moved back to uni now and the internet broke on saturday, my landlord fixed it today though! Boy did i miss the internet! So today i thought i'd talk you through how i organise my make up at uni since i don't have a dressing table! 

So this is my "make shift vanity" set up on my chest of drawers. You can see all my make up, brushes, jewelry and everyday beauty products! 

The make up i use most often is kept in 8 tubs. These are actually take-away tubs i bought from a bargain store back home. I separate the make up according to product type. So in the back row from L-R are: Foundations, Primers and Concealers, Blushes, Powder and Highlighters. In the front row from L-R are: Mascaras and Eyeliners, Paint Pots and single Eyeshadows, Lipsticks, Lipglosses. My palettes i keep just to the right of these tubs. 

Behind my make up i keep my brushes in 2 little pots, organised by face and eye brushes. I also keep perfume, deoderant and hair products. 

At the back on the right hand side i have a jewelry stand i purchased from ebay. I use it to store all my earrings. Its great to have them all on display when picking which to wear! 

In the two other pots on the desk i keep my other jewelry (necklaces, rings etc) and all my hair bands and clips etc! You can also see my eyeshadow palettes better! I also have a few more perfumes, a hair brush, the products i use to remove my make up and my moisturisers (day and night.)

Hope you enjoyed my whistle stop tour of my make shift dressing table and maybe picked up some storage tips for if you don't have a dressing table!
