When I first started my blog, I was obsessed with posts about everyone's makeup collections. I can't believe I have never done one, but then again, I think my collection is rather small in comparison to most I've seen. I have decided to show you mine because for the first time, I'm extremely happy with what I own. I think I have a really good mix of brands and colors. Of course, I always want more when I'm out and about doing some shopping, but I do try to take inventory of what I have before I make a purchase.

This is a clear storage container from WalMart. It sits on a white wooden vanity I got from Target.


Top drawer - blushes, powders, concealer, and my foundation (I still use MUFE Mat Velvet +)



Second drawer - eyeliners, miscellaneous eyeshadows, and a mini UDPP.



Third/Last drawer - Lash curlers, mascara, and other miscellaneous things. Looking at this now, I think I need to organize it more efficiently! I see there is a lot of wasted space!


This is one of my vanity drawers and it holds my eyeshadows as well as my highlight powders



Lip products. The little leopard holder is from TJ Maxx


Makeup palettes. UD Naked is my most used.



Lastly, this drawer holds q tips, makeup removers, moisturizers, and my Sonia Kashuk blending sponge. It is the only way I apply my foundation.





If you have any questions on specific products, feel free to ask!

  2. You've got a lot of lovely products - especially love your blush colors. Your eyeshadow collection is amazing - love all the MAC and NARS products. Which brand do you prefer - or are they both the same when it comes to e/s?

  6. Thank you girls! The storage is a work in progress I think ;)

    Ella: I actually prefer MAC because I think it has more shade colors and texture options. NARS has some beautiful shadows that are very pigmented, but many of them are too glittery/shimmery for my taste. I guess it depends on what you prefer and of course budget.

  9. LOVE your storage :) makes me itch to get more LOL

    I am curious to how you use the sponge to apply foundation?

  10. Andi: It's so convenient, right?! I like that it's clear so I can see everything too.

    Natasha: Thank you sweetie :) The Tarte product you are thinking of is a cheek stain in the color tipsy. I've had it for far too long! I need a new one soon!

    Anon: Thank you :) I know what you mean, I was just watching a collection video on youtube and it made me want more too!

    I use the sponge to "bounce" on my foundation. I know that sounds silly! I recommend watching MakeupbyTiffanyD's video on how she does it because I do it the same way. I put on my clinique moisturizer, get the sponge a little damp using one spray of MAC's fix + and then put two or three dots of my foundation over my face. Then I use the sponge to dab or pat the foundation into my skin. It's such a flawless application! My skin looks so smooth and almost airbrushed! Love it! I've been doing it this way for about two years now. Hope this helped!
