Tagged!: Makeup Collection and Storage!

Upasana of MakeupMyPassion had tagged me in one of her posts (you can read her post here) to show my makeup collection and storage. But before i do so let me set a few things straight here:

  • I do not hoard makeup for the sake of hoarding. I’m relatively new to the field of makeup and I love exploring new things. I do not fall into the makeup rut of sticking to a few products and I use all of what I have. (You can watch this video by Emily because this is what I follow! 🙂 )
  • I live with my parents and for now I have very little space to store my makeup. My storage space is not color coordinated. Im trying to work on storing my makeup better and I’ll be starting a series on makeup storage soon so I would also love to see how you guys store your makeup!
  • Every person getting tagged has to show the makeup they own, it doesn’t matters if you own a few or hoard a lot. The main motive is to share storage ideas.
  • The person getting tag can tag a minimum of 3 fellow bloggers, and max as they wish
  • You have to show “All” makeup stuff you’ve got.. no hide-n-seek allowed
  • Don’t forget to mention how do you store your products.
  • Last but not the least, you can include your skin care products too if you want.

So here’s how I store my makeup:

These compartmentalized containers are what I use to store my eye pencils, brushes, mascaras and concealers.

Lipsticks, Lipglosses and lipbalms go into the lower part of the second set of drawers. Lipsticks are segregated according to colors and Lipglosses and lipbalms are kept together behind the lipsticks.

Blushers and eyeshadows are together in the top half of the second set of drawers. I don’t own too many eye makeup stuff because I’m still learning. 2-3 other small palettes which I have are unopened so they don’t come here. The only issue I have is regarding the storage of my blushers. Need to figure out a better way of organizing them!

The top half of the blue and white drawers have my day and night cream and my body butter. It also stores my tinted moisturizers, foundations and face powders.

The third drawer in the blue and white set consists of my liquid/gel liners (again I haven’t included ones which I haven’t started using!) and makeup and nailpolish removers. It also stores cotton, cotton swabs, tissues and hand sanitizers.
Last but not the least this is my nailpolish collection. This goes into one of my cupboards.

Hope you liked my collection! If any of you would like to contribute to the storage series please upload your picture on Divassence’s facebook wall or send me a picture/article on how you store your makeup to divassence(at)gmail(dot)com. I would love to hear your ideas, feedback and suggestions!

Also I tag Jyoti of EverythingThatMatters, Samyukta of ISimplyLoveMakeup and Zara of TheWorldThroughMyRetina to show us all the makeup they’ve got! 😀
