My Makeup Collection & Storage | 2016


Hello everyone! So looking through my old posts, I haven’t written a makeup collection post since 2013 and it’s safe to say my makeup collection has grown and changed a fair amount since then! I’ve stepped out of my comfort zone of only using ‘drugstore’ makeup and my little collection is still growing! If I have written any reviews for the products in this post I will link them as I go along.

So starting off with storage I’ve only recently got more of these Muji drawers and I love them! They stack perfectly and even though they’re clear, it still looks neat and tidy in my bathroom. My makeup storage consists of three drawers, two of the wide 2 drawers and small 4 drawers which can be on its side like I have it or stood upright. In the top layer, I have some of my jewellery and it’s also where I keep my Blank Canvas Cosmetics Face Contour Palette.

In the next drawer, I keep all my foundations and primers, I think this is where my collection has grown the most! Going left to right, I have my Liz Earle Signature Foundation (Ivory 02), Maybelline Fit Me (120), Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum (52 Vanilla), Max Factor Facefinity 3in1 (Light Ivory 40), Rimmel Lasting Finish Primer, Rimmel Fix & Perfect Primer, Soap & Glory One Heck of a Blot Primer and along the bottom I have my two foundations I use every day which is my Max Factor Miracle Match Foundation (Light Ivory 40) and MAC Studio Fix Fluid (NC20). There are a few more foundations and primers I want to add to my collection, but I think for now I will just work my way through this little lot!

Then I have all my eyeshadows and my Sleek Brow Kit in Dark. As for my eyeshadows, they’re all palettes except my Baked Eyeshadow by e.l.f (which I have no idea what the shade is called!). I three Sleek palettes (Vintage Romance and two Ultra Mattes V2), a Barry M Natural Glow 2 palette and a BeautyUk palette.

In the last big drawer, I have my lip products and powders. Starting with lip liners, I have two Rimmel liners (Indian Pink and Black Tulip) and two MAC liners (Soar and Burgundy). I’m still not sure how I feel about lip liners, but I love wearing just ‘Soar’ on days I don’t want to have a full face of makeup. As for lipsticks, it’s another section that has grown within my collection.. I mostly have reds and a few pinks as they seem to suit my skin tone most and don’t make my teeth look a funny colour when I smile! So in the top right layer, I have two Rimmel Kate lipsticks (101 is a dusty pink and 107 is a deep red matte), a Revlon Colourburst Lip Butter in ‘Juicy Papaya’ and two MUA (shade 1 is a fire truck red and shade 13 is another deep red). Then the bottom layer are the colours I tend to reach for the most.. I also have my Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Lip Protectant in there as well as my MAC lipsticks (Brave, Dubonnet and Hang-Up), Seventeen ‘Rule Breaker’, Rimmel Kate ’30’ (a deep red/purple that smells like sour cherry sweets.. It’s amazing, go smell it!) and finally, another Revlon Colourburst Lip Butter in ‘Macaroon’. Lastly, I have my powders which are my bareMinerals Mineral Veil Finishing Powder, Rimmel Stay Matte Powder and Soap & Glory One Heck of a Blot Powder.

In my last four drawers I have my mascaras (Seventeen Doll’d Up (post), Soap & Glory Thick & Fast HDMax Factor Masterpiece Max and Max Factor False Lash Effect), Eyeliners (Max Factor Black Kohl Pencil, Rimmel Scandaleyes Nude Kohl Pencil, Soap & Glory Black Smolder Kohl Pencil and a Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Black Gel Eyeliner), a Soap & Glory Archery Pencil, my B. Beauty Sponge and eyelash curlers from The Vintage Cosmetics Company. Then last but not least, my concealers (Maybelline Eraser EyeMaybelline FitMe Concealer and Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer), Revlon Photoready Eye Primer and a pencil sharpener.

Since writing this post I have been a little naughty and added a few more makeup bits to my collection, but I will keep them for a ‘new in’ post which will be coming shortly. I am in no way saying I have a big collection, nor am I boasting, but I am a little nosey to see what others use in their makeup routines so I thought I’d give you a little insight into mine!

  1. […] I have three of the wide drawers and one of the mini drawers. If you’ve read my previous makeup storage post from a few years ago you should recognise these drawers! My set up has pretty much stayed the same […]
