Makeup Collection and Storage x Part 1 of 5 x

For the month of November I thought it'd be good to do a 5 part series showing you my up to date makeup collection and storage. (I'm doing this in 5 parts, one part per week for 5 weeks just because I don't want to overwhelm you with a mile long post and this way I should be able to do swatches too so its much better for everyone really).

So my makeup is stored in plastic drawers that I just got from a little corner shop in Manchester for around £12.

This set of drawers has 3 compartments, one for all my face products such as foundation, primer, concealer, concealer etc, one for all eye products such as mascara, eyeliners, eyeshadows etc and the top drawer for all lip products. On top of the drawers I store my brushes and my nail polishes I store in other areas of the room.

This First Post will be on my "face" drawer.

Bottom Row: Rimmel Natural Bronzer, Body Shop Honey Bronzer, No7 Bronzer.

I only have 2 cream contours the topshop one and clinique chubby stick and quite honestly I'd recommend the tops one over the clinique one if your the same skin tone as me because the other one is quite orange/red toned.

Highlighter is something I've only really gotten truly into due to the strobing trend so have a quite limited selection.

Mememe Beat the blues highlighter, No 7 Skin Illuminator, Glossy Box Highlighter, Vital radiance Highlight, MUA Highlight Stick, MUA Undress your skin highlight
