    Added a big ikea square mirror <3 <3 Now it looks like a proper make up station

    My main vanity table is still the same, but i've added additional plastic drawers on my table

    So I put the stuff that I use everyday on the table like brushes, Primers, BB cream and some lipsticks and lipglosses on stackable plastic containers which i bought from MUJI

    On the table top

    Lipsticks and lipglosses - stackable

    And here are the contents in the drawer:

    Drawer 1: Mac eye palettes, single eyeshadows quads and pigments

    Drawer 4: Cheek products ... I am obsessed with cheek products

    Drawer 5: Another drawer of cheek products MAC only

    What a great mom! Looks like they did a great job on the cabinet and the vertical lines of the wood grain give it such a nice modern look. I know you haven't asked for storage tips but if you ever run out of space in your shadow drawer, maybe consider one of those dvd organizers for your palettes to keep on top?

    * hands down* i love your collection.
    The moment when you got to the MAC Counter for B2M and the lipstick you wanted is SOLD OUT and you have TONS of lipsticks at home that you cannot remember which one you still don't have...

    I've since changed it last yr to this - er well..once again my mum got a carpenter to customize this dressing cabinet for me as she saw that my collection outgrew the old storage. I think she has given up hope on me for overspending on make up

    UPDATED AS OF 10/10/12
    Just realized that the last time I updated this was like almost 2 yrs ago and on top of my big dressing table, I've added more Opaque plastic drawers for more storage

    Here's how it look like currently, with the addition of new drawers on top of my dressing table

    And the contents...

    And the new addition to my storage solution is the following Opaque plastic containers from MUJI..

    Oopps pardon me for the messiness in this drawer, Will get it organized soon.

    Phew That took quite sometime for me to update!

    Wow this is an amazing collection!!! And so organized!!! I need to work on mine because I can't find anything LOL!!
