I consider make-up a hobby, I don't even pretend to need this much. Some people collect miniatures or movies, I collect eyeshadows. That's my thing ;P Just today I altered my vanity set-up, I used to have just a small shelf but it was way too tiny and there wasn't enough room for the two Helmer drawer units I use to store my make-up and jewellery. Now I have more room and it's great!
|The top drawer is for stuff I use often.|
|A closeup of the purples! They are all just in a pile.|
|And the browns. I've also put cream eyeshadows in with the regular ones|
so they can be easily found.
|Primers, mascara, eyelash curlers, eyeliner... basically all the odds and ends|
I use often :)
|The second drawer.|
|The pinks. They work well with purple and brown, so I have a lot of these.|
|Blues, whites and blacks have to share a box at the moment.|
|Surprisingly few turquoises and aquas considering it's one of my favourite colours.|
|Reds, oranges and yellows. These are not among my favourites,|
but they work very well for quick looks, almost any two or three go
|Greens. I'm a bit green-challenged, so there aren't many ;)|
|Blushes and lipstains|
|Other lip stuff|
|Smellies, palettes and skin stuff.|
My only palettes are two Sugarpill palettes and a very old L'Oreal palette. There are also only a few pressed shadows, three are by MAC and the rest basically from Sugarpill, with a few odd cheap-o shadows floating around.
The last drawer is for my other half's stuff, he gets only one and the rest are mine ;P Here's an extra pic of the way I store blush samples! It was too slow to try and put a little bit on a palette, so I got this stack of clear plastic jars and put the samples in them. The labelling is done with a Dymo machine.
