Makeup Collection - February 2013

Hey guys.

As promised a while ago, here is my makeup collection.

All my makeup (apart from my everyday makeup) is stored in the IKEA Alex 9 Drawer unit which I spoke about here. I am in love with this unit as I feel like it will last a long time due to its sturdiness. I also feel like it is a beautiful piece of furniture and is perfect for what I'm using it for. 

As you can see, on top of my Alex unit, I store my perfumes, which I have shown in a post before (Perfume collection). I also have my bunny lamp (shown here) and a jar of sweets for decoration (and eating of course!!)

Drawer #1 - Base (face) products:

In this drawer I keep my foundations / BB creams which I am not currently using at the back.

In the two middle compartments I have my bronzers and blushes.

At the front I keep any face powders and concealers.

To the side, I have my Revlon whipped foundation which I love and some perfume.

 Drawer #2 - Lip products:

This has to be one of my favourite drawers. As you can probably tell, I am a bit obsessed with lip products!!

In the back I have an assortment of lip balms. Admittedly, they don't get much use at the moment as I am obsessed with my EOS lipbalms...

In the middle sections, on the right I have all my lip glosses, and on the left I have a red lipliner and lip stains. 

In the bottom compartment, I have all my lipsticks and maybelline baby lips (which are awesome!)

Then, at the side, I have my two MAC tendertones, lush lip scrubs, a korres lip butter and two of my EOS lipbalms (I have another by my bed and one in my bag).

 Drawer #3 - Eyes (Mascara, eyebrows, lashes, eyeliner)

At the back, I have some sample mascaras which are great for travelling and my HD Brow Palette.

In the two middle compartments, on the right I have 2 waterproof mascaras, my too faced pinpoint mascara which I use for my lower lashes, and a MAC eyelash primer. On the left I have all my regular, non-waterproof mascaras.

In the bottom compartment I have my two Bobbi Brown gel liners, pencil liners, liquid liners and a sharpener.

At the side I have two pairs of lashes.

 Drawer #4 - Eyes (Primers, eyeshadow)

At the back of this drawer I keep miscellaneous eyeshadow and some eye primers.

In the middle sections I have all my smaller eyeshadow palettes.

In the front compartment I have my loose eyeshadows, the MAC ones are yet to be depotted.

Finally, at the side of this drawer I have all my MAC paintpots which you can see swatched in this post.

Drawer #5 - Large eyeshadow palettes

In this drawer I keep all my larger eyeshadow palettes.

I have my MAC palette, Stila Christmas 2011 palette, MUA 'Immaculate Collection' Palette, Original Naked palette, Too Faced 'Pixie Pin-Ups' Palette, another Too Faced palette and a profusion palette.

In the remaining drawers of my Alex unit I have hair tools, hair accessories, cotton rounds etc etc... It is not very organised so I didn't show it.. Also it's not makeup!!

Hope you enjoyed this post, if you have any comments or questions leave them below :)

Thanks for reading.
