Not just nails, but makeup hoarding too?!

*hangs head in shame* It’s true. Although, I still have more polish than makeup, but it turns out I just want all the pretty colours and glitter and shimmer. I am aΒ  Magpie. No judging πŸ˜€ Thought I’d do a quick blog post on how I store my makeup, what I do, and a quick organisation in progress πŸ˜€

This is my makeup case, not sorted out (although I have grabbed out stuff that I am destashing to my sister, but this is a bit of a mess). I keep my foundation/blush/concealer, eyeshadow palettes, and lipsticks and glosses in here. I also use a hanging storage thingy that I bought from a second hand shop to hang my daily moisturiser, brushes, and other misc makeup weaponry.

makeup unorganised

I am absolutely wearing a baggy jersey and trackpants. Just be grateful I’m not more in the mirror πŸ˜€ And yep, the tape on the mirror is there on purpose πŸ˜€

Taking photos of it made me tidy it up, so here it is again, better organised πŸ˜€ YAY!

case a bit more sorted

the mess in the middle is from a body shop brush on bronzer which spontaneously combusted one day. Gah. Everything was bronze and sparkly for AGES

I have a box on my drawers with untried eyeshadows in it – I try and use one untried and at least one tried eyeshadow at a time – spread the love around πŸ˜€ The sad thing is, I don’t wear makeup everyday and when I see all these pretties I feel like I’m a greedy cow who should be slathered in coloured powder every waking minute. Ah well.

And this is my drawer with loose eyeshadows … the indie eye shadows. I have them in little plastic food containers arranged by colour, to make it easier to find one I want.

eyeshadows in drawers

This is them, opened πŸ™‚ I find it pretty interesting to see what colours I gravitate towards… purple, blue and green – same as the polishes – I have more brown eyeshadows than polishes though, which makes sense with my eye colouring. The only reason I have as many blues as I do is because I adore the colour so much πŸ˜€

shadows

And finally – I have a lot of samples of shadows – in little baggies, which are awesome to test colours but a pain to store, so I’ve stashed them in these – one is a CD holder (has the cool toned colours) and a business card holder (warm toned shadows).

So many pretties – not enough face. If anyone sees me on the school run painted like an Avatar native you’ll know I’m trying to utilise more of my shadows… πŸ˜€

Have a great day!

  1. i am pretty sure glitter is a legit drug!

  2. you are really well organised, great stuff.

  3. This is so organised and pretty. My storage is a bit chaotic at the moment. All my lipsticks are in a box and I have to rotate what’s on top so I don’t wear the same things all the time!
