Updated: How I currently store my makeup

Hey guys! Back in January, I took everyone through my entire, well majority of my makeup collection. I showed how I used to store my makeup. You can see that original post here. I had everything stored in my empty Birchboxes. It was working for a while until I went to two makeup shows and I didn't have a place for everything! As I was cleaning one day, I saw that had this tall storage bin with stuff that I don't even use anymore and thought it would be a great place to store all my makeup and still have it organized. Here is a picture of where my makeup is currently stored.

I believe I purchased this 7 drawer unit at Walmart years ago and glad I kept it! It has come in handy. I'll take you through what is in each drawer. I'll start with the top of the unit where all my brushes, setting sprays (that I haven't used yet lol), OCC lip tars( I couldn't find anything to store them in but that red cup lol. I'll have to decorate it later.) and other items are.

In the first drawer, I put all of my primers for my face and eyes, setting powders, concealers, powder foundations, BB creams and Tinted Moisturizers. 

In the second drawer are all of my eyeliners including pencil, gel and liquid liners, mascaras and brow products.

The third drawer contains all blushes, bronzers and highlighters.

Next in the forth are most of my eyeshadows. Didn't realize I had so many!! The swatches of all my MAC shadows are coming very soon!!

The fifth one has all lip products including lipsticks, lip glosses, lip liners, lip pencils and lip crayons.

In the sixth one is the rest of my eyeshadows that couldn't fit in the other drawer, lashes, pigments, glitters, and extra lip glosses. 

And lastly are all the palettes that I have!

I'm so surprised that everything fit in here! I was so happy to get this organized and I think I'm all set with makeup for a while lol! Didn't realize I had so much of it. It should motivate me to use it more often. Let me know if there anything you would like to see swatches of or a review on. How do you currently store your makeup? Do you have a lot of it like I do? Comment below and let me know!!


  1. I have a very simlilar setup! I have 2 of the smaller 3 drawer storage things with an mini 3 drawer one on top of the other two. I have a large vanity/dressing table that they sit on. Then one of my vanity drawers olds some hair stuff like elastics etc and the other drawer holds all my palettes. I must admit, the drawer is packed to the max and I need to empty out the other side for more palettes lol

    1. I need to organize all my hair products next lol! They are taking up too much space in my bathroom. I have those 3 drawer storage units for some of my bracelets, I have too many! You must have a lot of palettes lol! Thanks for stopping by Tanya!!

  2. Nice makeup set up and collection! How do you like that VS bronzer?

    1. Thank you Pilar! I really like both VS bronzers I have. I dropped one of them and have to fix it. They're not too shimmery and give a nice glow.

    2. Thanks for the insight Andrea! I just ordered the VS Bronzer over the weekend since the Semi Annual Sale started online already lol I can't wait to try it!

    3. Yay! I hope you like it! Can't wait to hear your thoughts on it!!

  3. I have my makeup in some acrylic containers (3 drawers) but I definitely need something a bit bigger and where I can see everything...

    1. I was looking at getting some of the acrylic containers for my makeup but it was going to be a bit much for all that I had lol! I like that I can see in each drawer. Thanks for reading Lily!!

  4. What an awesome stash of makeup! I'd love to shop at your house lol
    I store my makeup in similar containers. Yours looks so neat and organized, mine on the other hand are not so organized :)

    Keisha xo

    1. Thanks Keisha!! My friends like shopping in my stash too lol!! It was getting crazy in the Birchboxes and being everywhere. Now I can find everything!

  5. i filmed my storage last week and will hopefully upload this week!!

  6. Your makeup storage is almost identical to the one I had before I upgraded! I also kept my brushes and other things on top of the storage units haha. You have a great makeup collection! I spot a MAC RiRi Hearts palette in the last drawer. I also bought one from that collection and it's still a favorite. :)

    Hope ♡ |

    1. Also, I gave you a follow on Bloglovin'! :)

    2. I'm surprised I got my hands on the RiRi pallet becuase everything else sold out quickly! I can't wait to upgrade soon. Thanks for the follow on Bloglovin' and stopping by Hope!!

Book Review: Dreams Are Built Overnight

Can't believe my birthday is next week, next Monday to be exact! I just want to have a nice, relaxing day. Today I am bringing you another book review (I know, two in one week lol)!

I have to say, I really proud of this guy and everything that he is doing now. I actually went to elementary school with David and he was a pretty cool person(and still is lol). Before this book, he started a company called Sleep Is 4 Suckers which sells apparel with a message behind it. David also expanded into motivational speaking and is a pretty dynamic speaker. I really wanted to support him and read this book because I was really drawn to the title of it.

I honestly did not want to put this book down when I started reading it. I read this book every free moment I had because I really wanted this information to sink in. You can really visualize what David is saying in this book and really picture the message he sharing. He really does drop a lot of amazing knowledge, tips and advice in this book.

Happily Ever Johnson: Registries, Rings and Things

It is crazy how fast this wedding is approaching! I can't believe it is almost February and June will be here before we know it! We have done so much with wedding planning and trying to make sure we have everything covered. First we started with finishing our registries. We started them but it just didn't feel complete. Earlier this month we attended a Sip and Scan event at Macy's. They had representatives from different brands such as Mikasa, Kitchen Aid and All Clad to answer any questions about products and to help you pick out the things you would like to put on your registry. They had a DJ there, passed hors o'derves and mocktails.

Here we are with the scanner having registry fun lol

We didn't have our formal or everyday dinnerware on the registry and finally picked those out. It was hard trying to decide what to go with. For everyday, I was looking for something that was durable since we have a 5 year old and dishware that was going to last. For our formal di…
