Hey lovelies, so I'm jumping onto the band wagon, I always love reading these posts. Though my collection is hardly big and for all those who lust over MAC well, I must be the only blogger not to own it, I don't see the big hype. I'll be saving my Debenhams gift cards for underwear and the new Naked 2 palette, next month. My collection is small but it's what I use and need. I'm not an out there, bright coloured, eye shadow wearer, I keep it neutral and I don't know where all my lip products have gone!? I've purchased most of this myself, a few gifted and bits and bobs I won back along. I must be the only blogger to buy what I need and be ruthless every couple of months.
So here's the newest way I store my makeup, I had it in two postcard print storage boxes before, annoying as hell when you used it every day, forever lifting lids and boxes, got annoying and messy. So I've always come across bloggers using the sets of drawers WHSmiths sell, though the patterns are never me or suit my room. Yesterday I popped in and thought I'd look. They had a couple designs, only two would suit my room. There was the box I have or a Laura Ashley, but the drawers on the LA weren't enough. This set of drawers sells for £12.99, it's tempting to go back and pick another one up, for when the collection grows, but by then I'll no doubt be fed up of this, I've only had my old storage since the Summer.
So how I organise it:
First Drawer, Eye products - Mascara, eyeliners and primers.
Middle Drawer, Lip glosses and a couple lipsticks, hardly wear lipstick.
Left Drawer, Eye Shadow palettes and odd few singles.
Right Drawer, Face products - 3 go to foundations, powders, blusher, concealer, etc.
Spare brushes, make-up spongers < hardly ever used. & extras.
Then, stood on top, my Sigma brushes - New York.
