I've just had a clear out so this is my new stream lined, personal collection (makeup that I use on others is stored separately).
I keep everything in my Ikea Alex unit, which was VERY expensive (around £81) but very much worth it as unlike many other, cheaper makeup storage solutions from Ikea, this unit is extremely solid and just feels high quality.
First draw: Skincare. (Face and body moisturisers, wipes, mud masks, eye creams, hairbrush etc.)
Fourth draw: eyes and lips.
Eyeshadows stored in kitchen cutlery holder.
Smaller palettes and quads on side.
Fifth draw: Palettes.
Lots of Urban Decay.
More UD and Yaby shadows in a Z palette.
Seventh draw: random.
So that's everything. It's nothing compared to some of the mammoth collections I've seen on YouTube but my collection is still too much for the average person. I've ordered a few things from sasa.com and cherry culture (40% NYX discount too hard to resist) but otherwise I've been on a no-buy for the last month and I'm hoping to keep it that way until I use up a few foundations, concealers and powders (I've only got a few weeks left of some of my bb creams and foundations as it stands). As for eyeshadow - I don't think I'll need any more for the next few years! Still, makeup is a hobby of mine and I'd love to do more freelance work too, so feel I can justify this collection but I'd like to keep it this size as it's just right for me. Any more and it'll be overload!
