I just ordered four more MAC eyeshadows – bringing me up to a total of FIFTEEN. Six months ago, I had excatly two shades of eyeshadow, one of blush and one of lipstick, and a single shade of eyeliner.
I now have (or will in a few days) 15 eyeshadows, three blushes, two contours, a highlighter, three gel liners, four pencils, several lipsticks and glosses with pencils that match, not to mention primers.
LOL! Feeling your pain. I can’t even look at my Sephora Beauty Insider points right now because I can’t believe I spent that much money that quickly. Palettes are my downfall, and they keep putting them on sale and emailing me about it!
haha nice! I have that purple HIP eyeshadow and those nyx lipglosses! ;P lol
Where did you get those containers? Are they those plastic containers usually in desks for pencils? Thats a good idea!
I saw the video marlena made on storing her make up. How do you feel about that? You have more make up than I do at the moment, do you think that using those tackle box trays (the clear things) are a good idea–I want to decide how I will organize before I start adding to my collection. (my excuse to avoid spending the money yet I think! lol) Im not very good at organizing things so im trying to plan ahead of time!
<p>I mentioned where in that post: The Container Store. :)If you have a lot of makeup, and a lot of space, other organizers like what Marlena shows in her makeup storage video are definitely an option, too. For me, I don’t have a room completely devoted to makeup (I keep my stuff in my bedroom), and I don’t have a lot of space there, nor do I have as much makeup as collectors do, so the system I currently have works for me. If it grows, I’ll make adjustments.</p><p>You can also look through the Traincase and Stash Stats/Storage sections of Specktra for some other ideas.</p><p>http://www.specktra.net/f/185/the-traincase</p><p>And I know several other Youtubers have videos on makeup organization. (Leesha (xsparkage) recently uploaded a great one, for example. Enkore always has great tips as well.)</p>
Yep it has started for me too! And I did exactly as Crisabell said…I went to Ikea, and now have my very own vanity. (Well my boyfriend actually made me pick one out and got it for me – I’m still new to the makeup scene and not very comfortable/confident with my abilities, or the lack there of so far, so he usually has to help push me explore my interests). He spent the 3 hours putting it together. I’m now constantly wanting to go to the make up stores / aisles just to look – but usually end up bringing something / or A LOT home. :oops:
I so get where you’re coming from. First i had about one drawer of things i used daily and leftover from my mum and now i can’t make it fit in 5 drawers….Maybe its time we bring back the 10 pan project!
