Makeup storage and collection!

Hi friends! So I’ve been meaning to write this post for AGES now but I’m just now getting around to it because I had to organize everything and that took longer than expected.

Let’s jump right into it, shall we?


This is what my vanity looks like when you’re standing in front of it (please ignore my mess in the background and my sloppy finals week look). The vanity is from IKEA and was a gift from my parents when I moved into my new apartment with my little sister, it just took some time to get it in there and put it together! I absolutely love it and I love the bay windows in my room where it fits perfectly.


This is what’s on the right, behind the mirror that usually sits on this side. The lipstick holder I won in a giveaway and it holds 24 lipsticks. I have 14 Wet N Wild MegaLast lipsticks and nine MAC lipsticks (although I took these pictures before I bought Whirl, so it’s now 10 MAC lipsticks). Then I have the Ben Nye Final Seal and the UD oil control setting spray, along with some eye makeup remover (I’m like 95% sure it’s Boots).


Then we have what’s arguably my favorite part AKA lipstick! From left to right, we have lip liners, ColourPop Lippie Stix, and two things of liquid lipstick. The pots are actually from IKEA and I believe are technically flower pots but they’re just so cute!


Then we have one more container with liquid lipstick (lol can you tell I have a problem), this one with all the minis I have! They’re mostly Stila with two KVD and one theBalm lipstick. I keep my knock off beauty blender on my vanity, but I barely ever use it since I started using a Real Techniques brush for foundation! The brush holders are actually from BH Cosmetics and I loooooove them, the brushes are great and they fit every brush in my collection!


Then we have the two little drawers on the side. On the one on the left, under my MAC lipsticks, I keep all the extra lip products that don’t fit in the lipstick holders on my dresser, plus stuff that doesn’t fit in the cups where I have my lip liners and liquid lipsticks.


On the other drawer, I keep all my go to face stuff. It’s all kind of stacked right now so you can’t really tell what’s there, but I have my Ben Nye powder, my OFRA setting powder, the elf under eye setting powder, Mary and Cindy Lou Manizer, Champagne Pop, the dupethat highlighter collab with OFRA, a BECCA primer, and all my concealers (Rimmel, NARS and UD).


Then we have the drawer that’s under my vanity, where I keep all my eyeshadow palettes, my blog planner and notebook, and my makeup wipes!


On the first little separation, I keep the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette and underneath is the Stila In the Light palette, and next to it are all three Naked palettes!


In the middle separation, I keep both of theBalm’s Nude Dude palettes, my MUA palettes, and the Lorac Love, Lust and Lace palette.


And lastly, some oh so glamorous makeup wipes and my blog planner and notebook!


Then on one of my dresses, we have these four drawers along with three lipstick holders with 12 spots each. Next to these, I keep my Too Faced BB Creme because the packaging is so cute! I need something else that looks this cute to display next to it though.


Bear with me here because these are a bit outdated, but most of the stuff is the same. In the top one, we have my Too Faced melted lipsticks, my LA Girl lip paints, and my LA Girl Matte Flat lipsticks. In the middle one, we have some NYX lipsticks and a bunch of random brands: Maybelline, Lip Bar, Clinique, Bésame Cosmetics, Stila, bareMinerals, Manna and Lancome. And in the first one, we have NARS, Sephora, bareMinerals, Little Mix by Collection, and J.Cat Beauty! Whew, that was a lot.

The only difference between these pictures and what it is now is that I gave away that Stila lipstick, I put the Manna and Lancome glosses (and the mini bareMinerals lipstick)  on my vanity in one of the drawers and I used those spots for the lipsticks that Lucie gave me in our exchange!


Then we have the drawer set on the other side of my vanity. First let me give a shoutout to my friend Hayley, who makes these beautiful bows and gave me Black Widow, Winter Soldier, and Captain America bows recently! You should totally order some of her amazing and beautifully crafted bows on her website, linked above.

But anyway, I digress. The top drawer has all my mascara, eyeliner and eyebrow products, along with some eyeshadow primers and an OFRA eyeshadow, which I’m not sure why I put there anyway.


The next drawer has all my ColourPop shadows, along with my Maybelline Color Tattoos and some other random eyeshadow products.


Then we have the hot mess drawer, which is a lot of primer, cream highlighters and samples of various things I couldn’t fit in one of the other drawers!


And lastly, we have my ColourPop highlighters, a setting powder I received in a Boxycharm, some foundation and some powder that I just don’t use as much as other ones.

So that’s my makeup storage and collection! I hope you guys enjoyed it and let me know if there are any products you’re curious about so I can write a review or post about them! Thanks for reading!!

  1. I’m so jealous of your set up! Everything laid out so you can see them! My stuff is literally inside a closet. I have drawers and containers stacked all on one side of a sliding closet, and that’s how I do my makeup every morning. SAD FACE.


  2. Your vanity is so pretty and organized! I literally stand in front of my dresser to do my makeup. I have to lean over the dresser to get close the the mirror which won’t work much longer the bigger my belly is getting, haha. I love your collection too! It shows your personality and you can tell you love makeup but it’s not excessive at the same time!
