My Makeup Collection/Vanity/Storage 2012

I've been into makeup for the past 3 years and within that span of time, I accumulated a LOT of makeup. It's more than what an average girl needs, I know! But please keep in mind that I'm a makeup blogger and makeup is part of my life. Some were bought with my own money, gifts from friends, family and fiance and others were sent to me by different beauty companies. It's so funny how I started out with just a small plastic drawer and now it grew to a full dresser/drawer. Call me a hoarder, I don't care! Makeup makes me happy and my makeup is not going anywhere haha...

I store all my makeup in this wooden dresser drawer. It's part of our bedroom set. I have all kinds of makeup from drugstore to high-end. I don't discriminate ^_^.


I keep all my headbands on top for display with my Sephora Hello Kitty eye shadow palette, sunglasses, pink ceramic frog jewelry holder and a small plastic drawer where I keep all my tools, eye bases and primers.


2 makeup mirrors that I use whenever I do my makeup.  One is a lighted double sided mirror and the other is a regular double sided mirror.


I have these 2 dolls that my fiance gave me back in high school when we first started dating, a Peter Rabbit Barbie doll and 3rd Infantry Division doll named Jon. I wonder if they become alive in the middle of the night and hook up haha...I also have my electronic picture frame and my Making Faces makeup book and Don't Go To The Cosmetics Counter Without Me book.


The first drawer to the left is were I keep the makeup I use on a regular basis. Starting from the right: face and setting powders, concealers, face primers, liquid foundation, single eye shadows, eye shadow palettes, blushes, bronzers, lipsticks and lipglosses. 


The first drawer to the right is where I keep all my makeup brushes, mascaras, eye liner pencils, lip liners, q-tips and cotton rounds. I like to store them in this utensil tray that I got from Ikea for less than $10. It keeps my brushes dust free.


The second drawer to the left is where I keep my false lashes, accessories, eye shadow palettes and MyGlam bags. I use empty Birchboxes to divide them.


The second drawer to the right is where I store all my Wet n Wild cosmetics and NYC New York Color cosmetics. This is my favorite part of my collection!

The third drawer to the left is miscellaneous drawer. It has a mix of beauty samples, my NYX glitters, high-end nail polishes and items that were sent to that I still need to review.



Here's a video of my collection where I talk about my makeup in details. It's a bit shaky but I hope you like it.





Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Wow Becky! I wish I could come over and play with it all! It looks so fun. You have an awesome collection. No one has the right to judge how much you do or don't have. I know some of my friends would be surprised by how much I've collected over the years. It's a fun little hobby :)

  3. wow so tidy and all hidden away so it looks so neat. Great stash and majorly jealous. Even my pro kit doesn't have near enough to what you have. I've stopped hoarding/hauling because i feel like I'm just wasting money. Do you feel like that sometimes?

    1. It's been a long time since I bought makeup. But I still get my monthly Birchbox and MyGlam which prevenets me from buying makeup because I have that package that I look forward to.
