Updated Make-Up Collection/Storage

I've been M.I.A for awhile now but I can go back to regular blogging. Been busy with school with finals but I'm glad it's now over.

Many had wanted to see my crowded make-up organization/collection.  I have a dressing table and about four of the drawers are occupied by cosmetic goodies.

Here is an example of a drawer filled with crowded make-up products.

1st Drawer
Side 1:
Contains: Cheek/Blush Products 

As you can see, I keep some products in their original boxes. Particularly, I like keeping Nars products in their boxes because of their rubberized packaging. They always tend to get quite dirty. I also like keeping some Mac Limited Edition boxes...some are just too cute to throw away.

The small drawer containers are bought from local dollerstores like Dollerama (Cdn chain store).

Side 2:
 Contains: Cheek Highlighters, Eye Bases, Eyeliners & Facial Moisturizers/Removers

2nd Drawer
Side 1:
 Contains: Face Powders, Foundations, Concealers, Lip Conditioners, Primers & Lipliner Pencils

 Side 2:
 Contains: Lipsticks & Lipglosses

I bought the lipstick holder from Ebay. Each tray can hold 60 lipsticks/glosses.

3rd Drawer
Side 1:
Contains: Eyeshadows, Eyeshadow Palettes

Contains: Eyeshadow Palettes, Miscellaneous Tools like eyelash curlers, & tweezers

4th Drawer
Side 1:
Contains: Nailpolishes
Side 2:
 Contains: Nailpolishes, Nail Tools, Removers & Perfumes

 Storage Organizers
(All from Walmart)

  I have three of these in three different sizes and have stacked them on top of eachother. 
The biggest one which is at the bottom contains my hair products, colours and hair tools. 
The top and middle ones contain pigments, loose shadows, jewellery, lashes and some drugstore make-up.

An Important Message:

Many have been wondering whatever happened to my tutorial videos? Well, unfortunately youtube started disabling some of my videos because of copyright issues. So I decided to transfer all the videos to my blog. I had stored them on my external drive for the past 2 years. As I was uploading them to my blog, the external drive just completely went dead on me. It first stopped detecting that it was connected and then it just stopped turning on. It's not like I dropped the external drive either...I had kept it well and in good condition. I was SOOO UPSET! I had so many important documents, pictures, songs, and  movies in that drive and I can't believe it's probably gone forever. =( I might give the drive to a friend who can try to fix it but I have totally lost hope. Last year, a sweet subscriber/follower had sent me some of my make-up tutorials that was stored on her ipod to me but that was deleted as well. =(  I hope if you're reading this or if anyone else has them still...can you please try to e-mail me the videos?

I would VERY MUCH appreciate it so that I can upload it back on my blog. Again, I'm sorry this happened and believe me, I've been real sad because of this. =(

Richa said...

aww I was wondering where your video's went because I didn't see any on your blog either try backing up your pictures online. It's the option i went for because my external gave out to i lost everything. I back up all my pictures at There is Unlimited photo storage. I think they give you video storage options to. Plus you can get a page to share pictures and what ever else you might like. Check it out :)
