Pam's Makeup Storage/Collection.

Hello Lacquered Lovelies and Makeup Freaks,
As most of you know I am not only passionate about nails but also makeup. Without makeup I am sure that I wouldn't have gotten into nails. I have done very few makeup posts on my blog because I am not sure if that is something you all like. Maybe I will make another blog dedicated to makeup only.... Maybe? Or if you guys are into that I will keep posting them here.

Today I am going to show you how I store my makeup and kind of tell a little bit around the brands and items that I have and why I organize my makeup the way I do.

First off my makeup all fits into a 5 drawer organizer that is from Sterlite, I believe this was around $5. I know I went back to the store and check the price not too long ago and it was $10. I have split mine into a group of three and two. Three drawers are on top of my nightstand and two are in the little cubby. Under the group of three I added a black board to make the top of the nightstand bigger because without it the surface of the nightstand is about a third of the size. 

What is on the left side of the top
What is on the right side.
 The first three drawers hold things that I grab for more than anything. This includes foundations, powders, eyeshadows, mascara, and eyeliners. On top of the storage drawers I have a container that I keep my brushes in, my mirror, and a few hair items.  Along the left side of my drawers I keep my Naked palette, lotion, brush cleanser (homemade I can make a post about it if you all would like), perfumes (not from Bath and Body Works), and a festive candle. On the right side I have all of my Bath and Body Works body splashes, another candle, and a lip tin. If you want a perfume collection please just tell me.

In the first drawer I have moisturizer, primer, foundation, concealer, and powders. 
-Clinique Dramatically Different Lotion
-Rimmel Fix and Prefect Primer
-L'Oreal True Match Foundations in W1 and W3
-Almay Foundation
-Benefits Erase Paste in #2
-Maybelline powders

In the second drawer I have eyeshadow bases and eyeshadows. I am not going to go into depth about these but I will say brands.
-Wet N' Wild Trios and Palettes
-ELF Quads, Pigments, and Palettes
-Maybelline Quads
-Essence Duo
-Benefits RSVP Creaseless Cream Shadow and Liner.

In the third drawer I have eyeliners, mascaras, eye primers, glitters, eyelashes, and glue. Again I am not going to go into depth with what colors or details.
-Wet N' Wild
-Sally Girl

Then in the second part is things I don't grab for often but I want to keep them to use later on or when I am feeling on wearing these items. On the left side of that I keep my hair sprays, smaller Bath and Body Works Lotions and Sprays, and bulkier makeup like Revlon Mineral Powder and L'Oreal Blushes and Powders. If you want a Bath and Body Works Collection Post please just tell me.

In the first drawer I have lip products this includes a chapstick, lipstick and lipglosses. I am not going to into depth about these but I will say the brands.
-Wet N' Wild
-Sally Hansen

In the second drawer I have random things. Things that don't fit somewhere else in the collection or bigger things that I don't use as much.
-ELF Blush and Bronzing Duo
-ELF Blotting Paper
-Wet N' Wild Blush
-Wet N' Wild Mega Glow
-LA Colors eyeshadow
-Revlon Eyeshadow
-Extra foundation

As for my brushes I have Sigma brushes, I actually got mine for free through Luuux. I have some ELF eyeshadow brushes and the brush from the Naked Palette.I actually don't use all of the brushes. 

Well that is it for now I might get more makeup in the future but as of right now I think I have what I need. There are things I would like but I am content. I want more high end stuff because I only have a few things.

Thanks for reading.

Enjoy yourself

  1. I store my makeup in the same type of sterilite drawers.I use a much larger 3 drawer storage to contain my NP. You should do some makeup looks.You have big eyelids,with alot of room to paint on! I would love to see your eye looks.I would do some too,but the camera doesn't photograph my wrinkly eyelids so well,lol!

  2. @Thalie My camera doesn't like picking up eye looks without outside lighting or really heavy artificial light. My eyes aren't that big I wish I had a higher arch to my eyebrows but I guess I can correct that over time. Since you put some input in about the makeup I will surely do more looks for my readers.
    Thanks for the great feedback and for taking the time to read my blog.
