I had a few readers ask me about storage and how I store my makeup and other junk, as well as a few who wanted to know what’s in my makeup arsenal…so I combined a bit of the two…I was too lazy to take a pic of every single thing because it’s just a massive amount of junk I have accumulated over a period of time, so there are a few things missing (i.e. makeup brushes, moisturizers, paint pots, etc.) I have since added quite a few necessary brushes to my collection since my last post on brushes, so I’ll do another post soon on the brushes I have as well as its uses.
I know some of you are wondering whether I actually use all of this stuff, and I actually do, of course not all at once, but I do switch off every now and then, sometimes I just wanna use MAC eyeshadows, MAC eyeshadows with mineral eyeshadows, or just mineral eyeshadows, I pretty much rotate among all my blushes so I use those frequently and the same goes for lipsticks and lipglosses. Of course there’s what I call “The Forgotten” which is just some random things I DID use and just forgot about it, and think i’ll use again. Of course I throw some stuff out that I know I will never use again or have surpassed its shelf life. I mostly use my paint pots, eyeshadows, and mineral cosmetics.
Most of the items are also things that were either given to me by friends as gifts, or products that were sent to me to test out and write a review. Some items are brand new and are either going to be on my online store (which WILL be the same URL as this site, it’s my blog and the store is a link within my blog), or items I am holding for a future contest. The BF says he is “always surrounded by makeup” lol because everywhere you turn at our place- is makeup! And pretty much anything I can fit things in serves as my makeup storage, haha.
As you can see, I like everything organized, so everything is labeled accordingly (you can find a labeler pretty much anywhere, officedepot, office max, staples, target, k-mart and more), this helps me find things easier and keep everything together…the plastic sterilite drawers I got from Wal-Mart, I find they have a better selection than any other place. **Pics taken with Canon SD750**
