Makeup Storage

I thought it might give you a giggle to see where I keep my make up. I know these posts are popular amongst bloggers and it always amazes me how much make up some of you have. It will also go some way to explain my lame comments on your blog post and how I will never understand the desire to fill your drawers with Mac products. My addiction is skincare and one of these days I  will write a similar post about my collection. I do believe that if you have a good skin care routine you will want to show off your natural skin and will have less blemishes to cover up. 


Pictured below is what I use to store my make up.


Yes folks I keep it all my make up in one small cosmetic purse/bag.  I have had this for years and it always contains the same amount of products. I promise I have not down sized recently nor do I have any other bags stashed around the house.

Here is what I keep in the bag


Starting from left to right I have Funky Fresh Silk Veil Finisher, Priia Creamy Mineral Under Eye Concealer, Lily Lolo  All Natural Lip Slick in English Rose, Terra Gloss Shimmering Natural Color in Bloom, No7 Essentially Natural Mineral Foundation in 220 Light Beige and Clinique 40 SPF City Block (not a natural product but I've been looking for a natural dupe for many years now).


Powder Brush which I think is from No 17, Tweezerman Tweezers I have had the same pair for a considerable time, Mister Mascara Japanese Style Tweezers, Body Shop lip/eye brush, Red Earth retractable lip brush (there is a sentimental story behind the brand Red Earth from my fond memories of living in Australia). 


So there you go, I have a very minimalistic lifestyle when it comes to make up.  I gave up experimenting with eye shadows and mascaras in my teen due to frequent allergic reactions and the loss of Almay counters in Boots.

  1. I can almost fit my collection in one make up bag aswell, I gave everything away last year and started over with things I knew I would actually use but like you, my skin care collection/hoarding is out of control.

  3. I dont know why I was so shocked to see this! I have so many drawers full of makeup that I just dont know what to do with, dont want to keep it but it pains me to part with it too! I love the idea of just one bag of makeup!

    1. I understand it must be hard to part with it all, I just don't have much interest in the first place and stick to what I know because of allergies so it's easy for me. I would recommend parting with anything out of date as that is not healthy :)
