So in my bathroom, which is where I do my makeup now (I used to have a makeup table which I miss sorely), I have this freestanding drawer unit that fits perfectly into a little alcove. So on top, I put my makeup mirror and my brushes, some cotton in a jar and makeup remover. I'd have taken a pic of that for you guys too, but it had makeup brushes laid out drying from being washed.
But here is how I store my makeup:
I labelled everything for you guys so hopefully you can see the text. This is my top drawer. It consists of stuff that I tend to reach for more often. So pigments on the top left, my UD naked palette and MAC eyeshadow and blush palettes, deodorant, moisturizers, Vaseline (I slather it on my lips before bedtime.) And I have these little plastic things that keep my makeup separated. There are 2 containers on the left which I got from Daiso for $2 Canadian each and the one on the right I got from IKEA a while back.
So in the top left container I keep my face makeup: primers, foundation (it's on the bottom left of the container...it's a MAC face and body foundie that I just transfered into a smaller squeexe container), pressed and loose powders, blushes, bronzers and concealer.
I keep all my eye makeup in the bottom left container: mascaras, eyeliners, eye brow pencils and powders, brow gel, undereye concealers, udpp, MAC paint pots, random single eyeshadows, and a small MAC palette, too.
In the container on the right, on the bottom I keep my skincare: undereye creams, more moisturizers, fix+ and also my MAC brush cleaner (which I transfered to a small spray bottle.
My middle drawer:
In the middle drawer I keep...more bins!!! Lol, I keep most of the colour products in this drawer...the ones I don't use too often. Well except the lippies. I change my lippies everyday so I just toss whatever colour I'm feeling that day into my purse in the morning. Ok, so containers on the left side are just from a dollar store...actually $1.25 store to be exact. The container on top left has all my blush, bronzer and highlight powders (all singles.) Container on the bottom left has all my palettes, mainly eyeshadow palettes but there is a MAC cream blush palette and a few lipstick palettes in there, too.
Now on the right side are 2 containers I picked up at Daiso the other day. I LOVE THEM!! They're exactly what I've been looking for for ages and they were ony $2 each. Score. They house all my lipsticks and lipglosses. Well actually I have more lipglosses and lippies but these are the ones that get used the most. Here's a better look at what they look like:
It's got 6 spots and you can get 9 MAC lipsticks in each cubby hole and 6 Illamasqua lippies.
Here's what it looks like from the side:
And the second one keeps my lipglosses, lip butters, lip balms and lipliners:
Okay last drawer:
In this bottom drawer I have yet more bins. Top left has my concealers and foundations that don't match me at the moment (so many colours from winter when I'm more pale to darker summer colours), I've got setting sprays here and random moisturizers.
On the bottom left bin I've got face powders, loose and pressed, a random face mask, beauty so clean cosmetic sanitizer and a large ziplock full of unused lashes.
On the bottom right, in the handled plastic container I keep my eyeliners in the zip up bag and more single eyeshadows that need to be depotted ;)
Above that are new sponges in another big ziplock bag. Next to that is my MAC brush cleaner (which I just refill when my spray bottle runs out), some airbrush makeup and some face masks I never use.
Okay so let's see it, how do you guys keep your stash contained??
