Day 1: A total inventory of all the makeup and makeup tools you own
I know my makeup collection isn’t as large as some other bloggers. This might go against some unspoken blogger rule, but I don’t like to have a large collection because makeup goes bad. Honestly, I am of the mindset that there is a finite number of different eye shadows and lip colors, so I don’t need to have 400 different lipsticks. This is my closet in my bathroom. In the apartment that I’m currently living in, I have my own bathroom. The closet inside my bathroom is really narrow, but fits 2 of these 3 drawer containers from Target nicely. This is where I store all my hair products, makeup, hair tools and makeup tools. Keep reading for more pictures!
Top Drawer: All my foundations, tinted moisturizers and concealers. I don’t own that many because out of all my makeup products, I hate having a lot of face products. I’m paranoid about bacteria in the products I use all over my face, these definitely do go bad if you have them for a long period of time and can cause break outs
Middle Drawer: Blushes, highlighters and bronzers. I only have 3 bronzers and 3 highlighters. This drawer is almost completely filled with blush. Yes, I have a weakness for blush.
Bottom Drawer: Single eyeshadows and smaller eye shadow palettes. Not all my palettes fit in here, but I crammed as much eye shadow as I could fit in this drawer. Its kind of a puzzle trying to make sure it all fits.
Top Drawer: Eye liners, mascaras, glitter and pigments. This is my favorite drawer 🙂 I have so many different color liners in pencil, gel and liquid. I don’t own too many pigments or glitter, and mascara is my all time favorite makeup product. (sneak peak, I have a few mascara reviews coming up)
Middle Drawer: Lip products. Chapstick, lip gloss, lipstick and lip stains. I’m not the biggest fan of lip products but I have a lot. I rarely wear lipstick, I am allergic to some lip glosses, so I go crazy with chapstick. But I have a slight weakness for Tart lip surgence lip stains. So I have a few of those as well.
Bottom Drawer: Tools and some nail stuff. I have a package of sponges, a beauty blender dupe, scissors, tweezers, nail clippers, extra top coats and base coats, and nail files.
I keep my brushes in 2 coffee mugs. I did that because I didn’t want to buy a container because I’m cheap and also because I need a “big girl” coffee mug that holds half a pot of coffee at a time. These itty-bitty cups weren’t working for me, so they get to hold my brushes now. Yes, a lot are dirty. No, I don’t own that many. Again, I don’t feel like I need 10 different eye shadow fluffy brushes for blending as long as I have a few that work well for me.
And that’s my makeup collection! I know it might not be as impressive as other people’s collections, but it works for me. Hopefully you guys like this!
