Current Everyday Make up Storage


Yeah, I went to Muji.


I bought the two drawer set. I can easily buy another set of drawers but I really feel overwhelmed when I see so much make up...
The top drawer is from the container store, the bottom two drawers is a one piece set from Muji. 

I rarely wear foundation. My real source of cover up is concealers.


I mix the Dior Sculpt concealer in shade 2 with Maybelline's Instant Age Rewind in shade "Brightener"
For my face I mix MUFE's waterproof concealer with a L'Oreal True match concealer to adjust to my fading tan.

This is the only portion of the make up station I actually use



I may have alot of make up, but I don't think I wear much. Most of my everyday items I keep in my make up bag itself. These are the only things I change. The whole slot is just my most used eye shadows, brow powder, lash curlers, mascara, lash serum and nightly lip balm

Ignore the brushes, I just use a bronzer brush, eco tools angled brush for the brows, and a MAC 224 or fingers for my shadows, not too professional I know. 

Products being: Eye shadows: Lorac Moonstone ( the shadow love of my life), Chanel Emerveilé, MAC Moleskine, Dior Ready to Glow Quint, and Smashbox Palette for brown eyes.
Other items: NYX brow powder, Shu lash curlers, Shiseido mascara base, Lancome Hypnose Precious Cells, Rapid Lash, and Baume de Rose by Terry


The second drawer comprises of things I have opened but am current not using. I am at the moment using a face routine, but once those products run out, I will go to this drawer for a replacement or just some fun on the weekends.

Products: Lancome mineral foundation, Bare Minerals Mineral Veil, Laura Mercier Secret Camoflauge, YSL bronzer, MAC Peaches and Ladyblush, Maybelline's Barely Beige Color Tattoo, NYX Taupe, NARS Portofino, and MAC's Love Nectar (new in box)

The last drawer are things also that are opened but I am currently not using BUT also new items to remind myself to stop buying make up because I clearly have enough, including things still new in the box and waiting to be used!

Products: MAC's Soft and Gentle, Laura Mercier Primer, Clarins Lip Perfector, NARS Doucer and O, Burberry Tangerine blush, YSL Sheer Candy no. 5 (new), Korres Lip Butter (new), Chanel Boy (new)

This drawer is not even full. 


On the side I have my current go to nail polishes, and I am giving Clinique's bottom lash mascara another go!


Lastly I have a box which I don't reach for yet because I have yet to find a good storage system. All my favorite eye shadows! Post on the below?

  1. how do you keep your 24 hour eye tattoo shadow from smudging on your contacts? i love that eyeshadow but it won't stay off my contacts!

  2. Nice drawers, I also enjoyed looking through your makeup shots lol. I am pretty jealous you can get away with mostly concealer. Must feel much lighter than a layer of foundation.

  5. I love to read your blog from time to tome but I nearly never comment. But this time, I just have to say 'WOW, this is a great setup'. It looks so perfect! it's like those pictures you see when looking for inspiration on storage ideas, just this is so much better 'cause you can see it's a real thing, not just made up and arranged for photo shoot :)

  6. Super cute<3 I always tell myself to store all my make up but, I'm just the type to throw everything into my traincase or into a box & leave it that way >,< pretty bad, I know~ Love your set up though!

  8. I have the same make-up storage system as you but mine are not from Muji but it's pretty much the same acrylic storage but mine were much cheaper. You've got to love it. ;) Great make-up choices by the way.

  11. I'm looking forward to the review of Chanel boy. Korres lip butter was a big dissapointment, especially after all the hype.

  12. I need this in my life.... been meaning to get one just never have. I am thinking of storing brushes laying flat in the muji container shelves, do you think they would fit? I love nars doucer btw, it has been my fall blush to go! :)

    ReplyDelete

  19. aw man they is a shame, it took me forever to buy these, no types of container stores? I think other brands make simmilar and can ship world wide.

  20. lol even if i have spots i dont use foundation, i dont even know why i own as many as i do! but my skin does seem to be better once i stopped putting it on

    ReplyDelete
  21. hmmm they smudge on your contacts? do you apply it too close to your lashline because I only apply them on my lids they dont smear on me. I sometimes apply them on my lower lashline but never in the water line nor close to my eyes and they don't smear. Hopefully this is helpful?

    ReplyDelete
  22. i think i have too much makeup! eeek! this looks like a good organization system though!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. This is just my everyday items i reach for often, the rest of my collection is put away LOL

    ReplyDelete
  24. Lol PHEW! That makes me feel better :)

  25. It has a weird smell, and it didn't moisturise my lips at all. La mer lip balm and the bliss lip balm are doing a much better job.

  26. I love muji storage! I got myself a mini one for makeup.. thinking of getting more once I move haha.. super affordable as well!

    ReplyDelete
  27. i'd love to see your storage!!!! also i think it may be cheaper in Japan i rem going to Muji there, it was HUGE

    ReplyDelete
  28. Great storage! I like how airy and uncluttered it is. I get overwhelmed with too much makeup too so compact storage solutions appeal to me. I'm curious about what's in your everyday makeup bag. Would you care to share?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Ahh the everyday make up bag post I have already written up just need to take the photos! You read my brain!
