Hi guys, I wanted to kick off the blog with a little sneak peek into my make-up stash. I know a lot of my friends and family know I own a lot of makeup but I know most of them have never seen my collection in full. First things first though; this is in no way meant to be a brag or boast about the amount of cosmetics I have, I just know I like to read about other bloggers’ collections and I thought you might find it interesting. Okay I will admit it now – I’m nosy and I’m giving you all a chance to have a nosy too.
I am going to split this post into two separate posts as it will be a bit picture heavy.
Here are a few photos of my desk. I have a large three panel mirror and the dreaded stand-alone magnifying mirror (which I know we all have a love/hate relationship with). As you can see I have some acrylic storage, and although it is a bit of a blogger cliché to have some clear storage, I do find it very useful to be able to see some of my most used items. I can say that only one of my sets of drawers are from Muji, the others have come from Staples and TK Maxx. I find it’s always worth looking around for storage as the two brush pots on the desk are actually flowerpots from Ikea.
I will go through what’s in my storage from left to right as shown in the photos. In the left most set of Muji drawers I have gel eyeliners and cream eyeshadows in the top drawer, and some of my most used powder eyeshadows and a brow powder kit in the middle drawer. The bottom drawer of this stack holds some of my most used blushers, highlighters and contour powders. On top of these drawers is a tiered lipstick holder containing some drugstore brands of lipstick, and a space for longer lipglosses and more lipsticks.
My next drawer is a smaller 3 drawer set from Staples. I have yet more lip products in here (can anyone say addiction?). The bottom two drawers contain lip crayons, (Clinique Chubby Sticks and Revlon Balm Stains etc. The top drawer is Sleek lip glosses, and some Revlon and Loreal gloss type stains. The holder on the top of this little stack of drawer has some of my High-end lipsticks and glosses.
I have two brush pots – one holding face brushes and the other eye brushes. In the centre is a small acrylic holder which has more high-end lipsticks plus beauty tools such as tweezers, eyelash curlers sponges etc.
The acrylic holder on the right has pencils (lip and eye), more lipsticks, and some face products: primer, foundations, concealer etc.
To round off this first post I will add that, yes, that is indeed an egg-cup with a golden egg in it (its a Tony Moly primer)!
