Makeup Collection and Storage



  I'm going to keep the words to the minimum as obviously I have posted a lot of pictures.  Sorry for the "romantic" lighting.  I have very little natural light in my room and had to use a lamp to take these pictures.  Basically I don't need to buy any more makeup anytime soon! I store my makeup in a birch and white MALM desk from Ikea and only use the desktop and top drawer for beauty related items. 

  I also keep some of my jewelery in my makeup desk to make it easier when getting ready in the morning.  Most of my stuff is from Forever 21 or H&M but some of the nicer earrings are gifts from my boyfriend.  I also included a shot of my puppy mug which holds my face brushes.  It was a gift from one of my 10 year old cousins when she was really small so it makes me smile.

  I've been collecting makeup for years and at one time those palettes above were completely full.  I am getting better at using things up and giving them away if I don't think I'll ever finish them.  If you see anything you'd like me to review or have any questions please let me know.

  1. Amazing collection! I wish I had drawers in my vanity so I can store things the way you do! I need to purchase some Z palettes, they look amazing!

    1. It saves so much space! I'd actually recommend the Unii palette over the Z-Palette as they're much better qualiy.

    2. AH I remember when I had to share a washroom with my better half, it was not good - he failed to see why I needed 90% of the storage space, now we have separate washrooms and it is bliss, I don't go into his and he doesn't go into mine
