Ikea Alex units - Beauty/Make-up Storage!

Ikea Alex units are Beauty lovers dream! They are so popular in beauty addicts lives and are amazingly beautiful for setting the right scene. I have three Alex units from Ikea uk, two being the ultimate white 9 draw units and the one I call Alex junior the 6 draw grey unit for under my dressing table. (Dressing table also Ikea)

find the Alex units so versatile for storing all my makeup and beauty products, making it so much easier to locate what I need. I have brought the little dividers for inside my grey unit from Ikea also to help with dividing everything up into sections. They are only 80p each from Ikea bathroom area, they are just so simple but work great. When your makeup gets a bit messy they are easy to wipe out like new again, which is great for me! Here is a sneak peak into my Alex junior drawers:

First two drawers are my everyday makeup and eye collections!

Next is my eyeshadow palettes (favourite draw and Too Faced chocolate palette being the best one for me) and my lip collection!

Then are my lip balms, creams/lotions (Sooo many more in the bathroom!) and bottom draw is my electricals! 
Find it so much easier now to find all the makeup I want to get to since sorting them out. Now onto my beloved 9 draw Alex unit.... 

These sit either side of my bed as seen in picture but sadly only one belongs to me! Other one is my husbands but I do plan on taking over it :)
In mine I have Sooo much, nails, Lush, birchbox/glossybox, notepad, headphones etc! Not in order this time but here are the sneak peak pictures...

Here is just some of my nail collections, I have more in 'really useful storage boxes' but these are my most used so have pride of place. I have nail polish from a wide variety of makes like Models own, Nails Inc, Sally Hansen, Orly, OPI, Barry M, Ciate etc.  My biggest nail collection is Barry M which I have been a fan of for years. My nail paints to use are the Gelly collection, I find them to have amazing range of colours and best for me for non-chipping.  Here you can see my favourite Barry M Gelly colours... 

More sneak peaks...

I keep my headphones, notepad for blogging and all my Birchbox/Glossybox items so they are handy. Face masks are a new thing I have been crazy about, not sure how my oily skin feels about them though. I love my Birchbox and Glossybox, a pure treat each month with items I would never have normally tried. You find hidden gems in them and I'm so glad I found out about them, if you decide you want to sign up click in my referral link for beauty boxes page at the top. 

And last but certainly not least (yes I know I'm missing a draw but my Sensationail gel nail draw wasn't the most impressive to look at.) I absolutely love Lush, they are pure heaven and relaxation to me. I enjoy seeing what each bath bomb does and find the skin on my body has improved dramatically since using them. I first started back into Lush after watching one of Zoellas YouTube hauls and now I'm obsessed. 
Also in picture is my bling and sparkle - my jewellery :) I love Pandora, Chamilia, Thomas Sabo but my favourite is Tresor Paris. I love my multicoloured bracelet the most which was a christmas present and have matching earrings to each colour also which are amazing. 

I think that concludes my Alex Draw storage, if you have any questions feel free to ask. Please follow my on BlogLovin if you like my posts I would really appreciate it and hope to do so much more in the future.
