Make Up Collection & Storage

Hellooooo beautifuls! Hope you're all having a good day! Mine has been pretty chilled as it's my day off work so I've just been cleaning my house and watched some tv. When it came to cleaning the bedroom, I decided to take some pictures and blog about my ever-growing make up collection to show you every inch of it and give you all some tips on how you could organise all of your beauty bits & pieces. :) I absolutely love my little corner of the bedroom and I am still obsessed with my mirrored dressing table as much as I was when I first saw it. It's very shiny and modern, not too girly as I'm married so it's my husbands bedroom aswell so that means no love heart drawer handles or anything like that :). I say "not too girly" as I take pictures of my teddies and lipsticks sitting on it (doh!) (Sorry Craig) :) he doesn't mind though. Talk of the devil, Craig actually made the lights down the side of my mirror from scratch, putting together all of the electrics and everything! He's a smart cookie :) I had wanted a 'hollywood lights' style vanity table for aaaaaaages but they were just SO expensive to buy. So we went out and bought a huge mirror here from B&Q, wood, bulbs, cables and TA DAH! He made it look so proffessional and I could NOT be happier with it. It's the perfect place for me to sit down, get creative and store all my stuff. If you own a million make up bags that are overflowing (we've all been there!) and want some ideas/organisation tips on how to store your products, I hope this helps and I hope you all enjoy reading! Until next time! :) xoxo

On the left hand size of my table, I have a 3 drawer storage box that holds some of my palettes including my Naked and Naked 3 by Urban Decay, Too Faced Leopard Love highlighter palette that I reeeally need to start using more. I think i've used it once since I got it like a year & a half ago.. oops! and my MAC palette that I customized myself in the top drawer. You can read more about my customized MAC palette- HERE. In the middle drawer, I have some some blushes, both of my MAC mineralize skin finishes, my Archie's Girls pearlmatte face powders (I am obsessed with these, how pretty are they?!), my MAC holiday pigments set, and then just a few little bits and bobs including Nyx jumbo pencil in 'Milk' Maybelline Baby Skin primer and Benefit's They're Real mascara. And finally in the bottom drawer there's 2 Kat Von D palettes, my BHcosmetics 120 colour palette and some MAC paint pots. I currently own 3 which are- painterly, stormy pink & let's skate! I love the paintpots, they make the perfect base for eyeshadows and can be used in so many ways. As a lipstick for example. Next to the drawers I have my make up brushes and lipliners standing in a fancy little damask patterned pot (I can't actually remember where I bought this from, sorry!). Moving along, I just have some of my everyday use products sitting there such as my favourite perfume everrrrr- Katy Perry's 'Meow', my holy grail foundation-MAC Studio Fix Fluid (I don't think I will ever use any other foundation, I love it so much), Urban Decay's all nighter setting spray and Anastasia Beverly Hills dipbrow pomade in 'Ebony'- my essentials. In the middle of my vanity table, my MAC lipsticks are the centre of attention. (currently waiting for another acrylic lipstick holder to arrive.) I have a mirrored jewellery box next to the lipsticks which goes perfect with the table! It holds all of my earrings and rings as all my necklaces/bracelets and other items are hanging on my jewellery mannequin on the far right-hand side of my table. Various other things I have sitting on my vanity is my unicorn that my in-laws bought me, it's soo pretty and its feet really sparkle when my lights are switched on and sitting on top of my jewellery box is my cat teddy that I got for my 21st birthday. It's one of my favourite things ever because it is literally a replica of my cat, Dolly. I just adore it so much so I have it sitting on my table so I can see it everyday :)
