Updated Makeup Collection 2017

Hello everyone!

In today's post I am going to be sharing with you my updated makeup collection for 2017. Can you believe it's 2017 already?! I was going to do one at the end of last year but I decided to wait because I knew that I would be getting a lot of makeup for both Christmas and my birthday.

As with my previous makeup collections, I am going to be listing all the non makeup items at the end of this post. I'm not going to be listing any makeup products though because that would take far too long!

I am still storing my makeup collection in the same dressing table as before. The items on the top of my dressing table have changed so I will quickly run through those now. I also want to quickly mention the chair at my dressing table, as that has changed. I got the chair from Ikea (link at the end!) because I didn't really like the stool that came with it because it was uncomfortable to sit on. This chair is really comfy and I have a blanket draped over the back as well as a cushion on the seat, which I will try to link at the end of this post.

Starting with the very left hand side of my dressing table, I have my makeup brushes. The brushes are in my Ikea Skurar Pots, as they always have been, but I have then put those pots in a wooden storage box which I bought from Ponden Home Interiors. I can't find the storage on their website but I will link a few similar at the end of this post. I think that this looks really nice and adds a rustic effect to my dressing table.

I don't have anything else on the left hand side of the dressing table, so the next thing is my main mirror. I have had this for the same amount of time as my dressing table and I love that there's three parts to it. It is screwed down to the dressing table so that it doesn't fall over and smash, and that is why I have never decided to change it. In front of the mirror I have a little silver jewellery box which is engraved and I store all of my everyday jewelry in it. It was a Christmas present so I'm not sure where it's from, but I'm sure there are lots of similar ones available.

Tucked behind my main mirror I have a new No7 Illuminated Mirror because my other one cracked. I always do my makeup using this mirror because it means I can see every little detail up close, and it has a light around the perimeter so it creates the perfect lighting for doing my makeup.

Finally, on the right side of the table I have my MUJI acrylic drawers with two lipstick holders on top. Inside the drawers I store the majority of my lip products, and then the rest are stored in the two holders on top. I love the MUJI storage and the drawers have served me very well in the few years that I have had them. I will talk more about my lip products later though!

I store the majority of my makeup in the top 2 drawers of each side, so that's four drawers in total. In the top drawer on the left hand side I have all of my eye shadows; whether that's single shadows or palettes. I have all of the palettes methodically stacked up around the drawer, and then I have a basket full of all of my single shadows including creams. I'm not going to go through every single makeup object, for obvious reasons, but I will mention a few of my favourites from each category. My favourite palettes are definitely the Too Faced Sweet Peach, MAC Warm Neutrals, Kylie Cosmetics Burgundy and the Naked palettes. I also really like the Makeup Revolution 32 palettes, of which I have two. I have a ton of No7 single shadows in the little basket, as well as a Kylie Cosmetics cream shadow and a few of the Maybelline Colour Tattoos.

Underneath my eye shadows I store my base face products; primer, concealer, foundation, powder and setting sprays. At the back of the drawer I have my primers and concealers. I'm sure you all know that my favourite primer is the Benefit PoreFessional! I also have some Rimmel primers and a few other random brands. Next to my primers I have concealers. I don't really own that many concealers, but I just have a few Benefit ones as well as Collection, NYX and MUA. Stashed beside that basket I have two setting sprays; the NYX Matte Finish and the L'Oreal Infallible. These are both running VERY low so I am going to have to repurchase both of them soon. Then at the front of the drawer I have a basket with all of my foundations. One of my top foundations at the minute is the Estee Lauder Double Wear, and I also love the GOSH Foundation Drops, No7 Beautifully Matte and the Rimmel Lasting Finish. I don't have a storage method for my powders, so do let me know how I could store them, but I have them stacked up in the front of my drawer. I have a few of the Rimmel Stay Matte powders (obviously!) and a few random brands like NYX and Collection.

In the top left hand drawer I have a mix of products. I have all of my mascaras, eyeliners, contour products, bronzers and highlighters in this drawer. I also have a little pot at the back with my (very few!) brow products in. The first basket contains all of my mascaras. I have loads of mascaras so I'm just going to mention a few. I've really been liking the Benefit Roller Lash recently, and I also love the Benefit They're Real, Rimmel ScandalEyes and Rimmel Volume Colourist. Pushed to the very back of this drawer I have my eyeliners. As I've mentioned on multiple occasions, I don't really wear eyeliner that much because I always end up messing it up! The very last basket in the drawer contains my bronzers, contour products and highlighters. My most recent additions to this basket has been the Kat Von D Shade & Light Palette, Benefit Hoola Bronzer and The Balm Mary Lou Manizer. Some of my old favourites are the Sleek Face Form palettes, L'Oreal Infallible Sculpt Duo and Makeup Revolution Highlight Trio. In between my two baskets I also have the Smashbox Shape Matters palette because I couldn't get it to fit anywhere else:) The little pot at the back left hand corner has my brow products in. I only have a few brow products because I tend to just stick to the same gel everyday. My most recent favourite is the Benefit Gimme Brow, and I also like the NYX Tinted Brow Gel.

The final drawer has all of my blushers, but I am working on combining this drawer with the one above. The only basket in this drawer contains all of my blushers. To be honest, I have't been reaching for any of these very often recently. When I do like to wear blush, however, it's usually MAC Peachykeen or the Sleek Rose Gold blush.

Finally I have all of my lip products on the top of my dressing table, like I mentioned earlier. In the holders on top of my MUJI drawers I have all of my I Heart Makeup lipsticks, my MAC lipsticks and all of my Kylie Cosmetics liquid lipsticks and glosses. I have sorted all of my lipsticks into colours, so that I can easily find the shade I'm looking for. In the top drawer I have all nude lipsticks. I have some of the NYX Lip Lingerie's, NYX Butter Glosses, a NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream and a lot of other random brands. Some of the random brands I own include GOSH, KIKO, MUA and Bourjois. In the next drawer down I have reds and purples. Again, there is a whole host of different brands. Some of which include NYX, Soap & Glory, KIKO, Revlon and Rimmel. I also have a L'Oreal Colour Riche palette which is the red version. Underneath that drawer I have my pink and coral lipsticks. This is probably the drawer which I go to the least, mostly because I feel like I don't really suit these sorts of shades. The fourth drawer is a lot more empty, but I'm sure it will get filled up soon! In the drawer I have 10 Makeup Revolution lipsticks, my favourite GOSH Lip Oil, a MAC Lip Primer and a few other little lip balms. I also store all of my lip liners in here, but I don't use them all that often. I have some of the Kylie Cosmetics liners that came with my lip kits, and I also have some other brands such as MAC and MUA. I'm not going to show the final drawer because it is practically empty, it just has some random glosses in and a few perfume samples. Again, this drawer will be getting filled in the near future I suspect:)
Side note: I have only included my everyday (nude!) lipsticks because I don't really wear any of my others. 

That is my updated makeup collection! I hope that you enjoyed taking a peak into my makeup drawers:) Please do let me know in the comments if you would like to see a room tour as well, because I would love to do one.
