    Ice Cube Tray storage and Big Collection Pics

    April 20, 2009
    I've gone on a mica rampage and added about 60+ baggies of loose pigment to my collection! I've already posted them on the Swatch pages, here:

    March 6, 2009:
    It's been yet another year, and I've moved into a place with more space, which means more makeup! I've changed my setup and someday will get to the part where I detail out my collection. For now, here's my storage setup:

    The top of my vanity:


    With the two desk drawers open, where I store lippies, powders and cream/gel shadows/liners:


    Closeup of left drawer:


    Closeup of right drawer:


    Closeup of my brushes:



    I have another small cabinet beneath the desk,
    Top drawer where I store all my liquid liners, mascaras, and lipglosses:


    Bottom drawer for nail polish storage:


    ************************************************** ******
    Feb 17, 2008:
    It's been a year since I've last posted collection pics. My how things have changed since then.

    I went on a shopping spree this past weekend... for ice cube trays! I love being able to easily access my makeup without digging around too much for it, so I thought I would share how I organize it all. Then I got carried away and took pics of the rest my collection too

    All the ice cube trays I have:



    My paint pots
    Top row: Iris Eyes f/l (what I was hoping Nice Vice would be), Otherworldly, Stray Grey, Layin' Low, Perky
    Bottom row: Electro Sky, Pharoah, Girl Friendly, Groundwork, Greenstroke



    Most of my fluidlines (excluding my top favs, Blacktrack and Lithograph as well as Bobbi Brown Sapphire Shimmer and Galaxy)
    Left row, top to bottom: Graphic Brown, Ostentatious, Macroviolet, Shade, Sweet Sage, Uppity
    Right row, top to bottom: Frostlite, Brassy, Delineate, Non-Conformist, Royal Wink, Jadeeye



    Other random stuff in a tray meant to make ice sticks: Formal Black 2006 Warm and Smokey, random 4-pan of Body Shop Eye shimmers, Fashion Frenzy, Afterdusk, Hipness, Sephora Blush Me in Rose



    Lipglasses, glitter liners, and lippies, all in an Ikea ice cube tray (which I ended up not using in the end, but hey, it may work for you!)

    Row 1 (starting from left), top to bottom: Snowgirl, Cultured, Crystal Rose, Magnetique, Flashmode, Palatial, Totally It, Venetian, Pure Vanity
    Row 2: Boldheart, Atmospheric, Jewelbright, Sex Ray, Pink Patina, Electro-Lush, Lust, Spite, Spirited
    Row 3: Bronzibar, Entice, Flashtronic, Oh Baby, Revealing, Nymphette, Perfectly Pink, Fancy That, Petit Four
    Row 4: Ignite, Lovin it Light, Topper, Bronze & Brazen, Most Wanted, Mousse
    Row 5: Make Up store Choco Lux, Body Shop blue, Body Shop silver, Blitzed, Lime Dandy
    Row 6: Paramount, Satiate, Cherish, Blast o Blue, High Top, Fun n Sexy
    Row 7: Clinique Raspberry Glace, Clinique Maple Sugar, Lady Danger, Russian Red


    Woops, forgot a to take a pic of the tray with MSFs and powders, but I have to say it's the one that inspired me to buy more trays, since I keep them organized from darkest to lightest, I pretty much have their positions memorized.




    All of my collection, some of which I reorganized since the batch of ice-cube tray pics, after I figured out how to maximize my space:


    All I have space for on my vanity: Eye brush cup, Loose Powder in NC15, Sunspill Beauty Powder, Hundred Degrees Pearlizer, 181SE, Face brush cup


    All my brushes neatly washed for pics:
    L-R:
    Sephora #16 powder
    Sephora #3 bronzer
    188
    187SE
    129SE
    190SE
    168SE
    209SE
    219SE
    316SE
    266SE
    239SE
    275SE
    252SE
    217SE
    212SE
    194SE
    208
    231

    Clockwise from Sculpt and Shape: Accentuate/Sculpt, Warmed, Northern Lights, Shimpagne, Lightscapade, MSF Natural in Medium Dark, Gold Spill, not pictured is Blot Powder in Medium


    The lippie holder I ended up going with:
    The names listed earlier in the red Ikea tray


    Rest of the random stuff, some in a plastic sock and underwear organizer:

    MAC stuff:
    Brush Cleaner
    Concealer palette in medium
    Dig It Eye Khol
    Heirloom Eye Kohl
    Lightful Protective Moisturizer SPF 30 (Asia only)
    Lip Conditioning Stick
    mini Fix+
    mini Strobe Cream in Peach
    Prep + Prime Refined Zone (Asia only)
    Plushblack mascara
    Redd lipliner
    Spice lipliner
    Strobe Cream
    Select Foundation in NC30
    Studio Moisturecover in NW20
    Studio Finish NC35

    not pictured:
    Gently Off Eye and Lip
    mini Cleanse Off Oil in Tranquil

    I have virtually no counter space on my tiny vanity, so the rest of my stuff has to live in a fabric Ikea box underneath. I carry this whole thing from my bedroom to the den to play with in front of the TV when I need to destress


    Phew, that took about 2 hours of my life. Hope you enjoyed and I think I'll wait for another year before I attempt this again.

    I LOVE the storage ideas!! I find I'm starting to have a few msfs and blushes and laying them down takes up quite a bit of space in these plastic drawers I have. I love it!!! And the lip storage thing too--way to go!
