After countless trips to Ikea, solutions and the dollar store, I was still unimpressed with the storage solutions they offered...I had a ton of cardboard paper bags from my recent MAC and Sephora haulage, and so I decided to cut the bottom part off the paper bag and use it as storage for my lippies (cut taller), liners (cut shorter), etc...
I present to you my makeup collection!
Cutlery drawer that used to house my makeup prior to my addiction!
Current makeup storage - 1 drawer in an Ikea Antonius system (One bedroom apartment = creative storage!)
Closeup of drawer and lipglosses and treatments
How my "containers" look like = bottom part of Sephora bag! This one houses lipliners (mostly MAC)
Another one of my "containers" = bottom part of MAC bag! This one houses lipglosses

Random "tools": Tweezers, Eyelash Curler, Evian Water Spray, Brushes I use daily, Blushable Cream Sticks (NYC)
Eyeliners (moslt Bonne Bell actually! I was in a "phase" of getting colored liners and testing them before committing to UD...Didn't work out as you can tell...) and random mascaras (<3 DiorShow!)
Backups and new products
MAC palettes and eyeshadows - housed in a former Saks Bag
Brush roll from Ebay
How it looks like open...these are actually quite soft and function well!
Quo and H&M brushes (my fave brush from Quo is the crease brush=224, from H&M the eyeshadow brush = 217)
MAC and Bobbi Brown Brushes
Ladyblush, Dainty, Random L'Oreal, Sephora Monos, NARS Douceur, Orgasm and Deep Throat and Benefit Coralista!
CCB's from face container: Hush, Tickle Me Pink and Virgin Isle
More face stuff: MSF in Natural, Soft and Gentle; Bronzer in Golden Refined, Bobbi Brown Shimmerbrick in Rose (kit with Lips), and Holiday '09 face palette
"Lip kit" from Bobbi Brown (along with Shimmerbrick in Rose)
Eye palettes, mostly H&M, two from NYX, one Kat Von D (Rock'N'Roll) and Elizabeth Arden
Laid out Duos and Quads - Love pigmentation of these...and sooo cheap!
This was only 7.95$...will post swatches of colours I was really shocked with the payoff!
How I store my mac palettes - the tissue paper keeps it somewhat clean!
Blush palette: Top: Pink Swoon, Springsheen, Peaches
Bottom: Margin, Trace Gold, Harmony
Pinks and Purples - Empty: Future home of Lala
Golds and Silvers
Greens and Blues - Middle row will house Shimmermoss soon...
Corals and Reds - Top slot will house Straw Harvest soon
Stray shadows, the Nyx shadow is in Orange and is my favorite everyday shadow...It's a very rare peachy color and it's gorgeous...I don't think there is anything like it in the MAC range
(Looks much darker in the picture!)
Hope you have enjoyed looking at my collection and can't wait for your feedback!
