Organising My Make Up Collection (Part Two)

Hi Everyone

This is my current set up 🙂

As I shared with you in my last post – Part One of this series (here 🙂) I  recently realised that I did not use even half of my make up as I stashed it away in cases, draws and different rooms. So I decided to share how I managed this problem and re-organised my make up system.



I started the process by shopping my stash and going through everything! I threw out what was old and gave away what I no longer wanted.  I also created a new system that allows me to get the most use out of my make up – Also I have included my fave products from each section 🙂

Part One focused on lip products, eyeliners/mascaras and face products. This post, Part 2, will include foundations, eyeshaows and brushes.

Lets get started 🙂



As I have acne-prone skin I don’t wear a liquid foundation on a daily basis, so the two powders I use are the Clinique Almost Powder Make up in 03 and the Rimmel Stay Matte powder on 06. The Clinique powder is my base and is the perfect colour match for my skin! It is also great because it isn’t exactly a loose powder which means it provides more coverage. I use this compact in conjunction with the Rimmel powder to make the look last longer and stay matte.
However, on special occasions I use the Clinique Super Primer for Colour Correction (review of this product here: http://beautybalmer.blogspot.com.au/2013/12/review-clinique-superprimer-for-colour.html ), the Clinique Stay-Matte, Oil Free Foundation and the Estee Lauder Concealer in Light Medium. I love this combination and all these products work fantastically with my oily skin  🙂
I have lots of eyeshadows and couldn’t show them all, so I thought I’d share just some of my favourites, and I have also included a blush/bronzer combo too 😛
From left to right: Laura Mercier Pink Bronze Bronzing Duo, Laura Mercier eyeshaodow trio – cant find the name :(, Essence Quattro in Over the Taupe, Chi Chi Nudes Palette, Estee Lauder Sensational effects Eyeshadow ( the four colours are: Diligree, Wif, Couture, Fashion Show) and the Australis Paparazi Perfect in A-lister Sista. I love all these products 🙂 they are gorgeous!
Storage Tip: Here is my draw where I keep extra lipsticks (holder from Priceline), my most loved palettes (the smaller ones go in the pink and yellow boxes – I don’t know where I got them) and I keep samples/foundations mainly in the white tin at the back from the Reject Shop.

Lastly, brushes! I have a few roll up sets but I keep my most used and loved brushes in this holder from Daiso.

My fave brushes are: Real Techniques Buffing Brush (I use for liquid foundation) and the Stippling Brush (I use for blush), Australis brushes in – Mineral Eyeshadow contouring Brush and Eyeshadow Brush.

That’s all for my last part of my Make Up organisation/collection. I hope you enjoyed it and inspired you for some spring cleaning 🙂 If there is anything that you’ve tried that I have included please leave a comment with your thoughts on the product! Also how do you store your make up?
xoxo
