COMPETITION: The Ultimate Makeup Storage Unit? Illuminate by BARE.

Arguing with your boyfriend about how much space your makeup takes up; feeling like a fool because you’ve just tripped over another lipgloss lurking on the floor; struggling to find that one mascara that makes you look awake at 7am because you chucked it back in one of many bags yesterday. Sound familiar? Makeup storage and organisation can become a massive issue if your collection bulges as much as mine, causing more issues in your life than you ever thought was possible from a few eyeshadow palettes. Although the current trend of perspex stationary boxes helps our storage issues to a certain degree, they’re not fit for the purpose we’re trying to make them serve.  Clunky stacking boxes may offer a large amount of space, but it’s not easy to find the one eyeliner you’re looking for without unstacking your entire collection. If you’re looking for the holy grail of makeup storage, then the new collection of Illuminate by BARE may be the solution. I was lucky enough to meet the founder, get a preview of the unit soon to launch and find out why Illuminate is soon to become the must-have for beauty bloggers and makeup enthusiasts alike.

Designed to fit into our busy lives and provide personalised solutions to our storage issues, Illuminate is a new system that includes four different box units that are designed to hold everything we need them to. Not only are there handy drawers with small compartments for makeup, but added extras that include a brush holding solution and even jewellery storage. The sleek and modern design ensures it fits into any bedroom or bathroom with ease, subtly providing a stackable solution to minimise the amount of space needed. It’s sturdy, practical and most importantly: affordable. Prices will start from around £30.00 – a price point that simply can’t be beaten by other brands or units. I really love the whole concept and can’t wait to be able to get my hands on it myself when it launches in around a month. If, like me, you’re in desperate need of some organisation, then you can find out more about Illuminate by signing up to their newsletter and social channels so you’re the first to know when it becomes available to buy. Visit for all the details!

However, because I’m jammy and know how many of you will love this idea as much as me, I’ve managed to get my hands on a complete unit which can be yours as soon as it’s launched. Worth £200 and including a full set of stackable beauty storage boxes as well as the LED mirror, you can be one of the first people in the world to pop Illuminate into your bedroom and enjoy the benefit of an organised makeup collection. All you have to do is enter via the widget below and have a little look at the interview I filmed with Miss Budget Beauty. While you’re at it, make sure you follow them on Twitter, like them on Facebook and sign up to their newsletter so you’re the first in the know about everything Illuminate.
