Updated Vanity, Storage & Make Up Collection

Afternoon ladies!

Can you believe its been over a year and a half since i last showed you my makeup storage and vanity? The link to that post is here if you havent seen it. I must admit, not a lot has changed! If anything my makeup area is a lot more cluttered and i have a lot less make up, but i thought i would show you anyway as it is one of my most popular blog posts! 

I still have the same Ikea desk along with my much loved Muji plastic drawer tower! 
Newest additions to my vanity area since last time include:
Full Sigma brush set & Holders ( I did a review of this here! )
Letter rack purchased from TK Maxx which houses my MAC palette, Sleek MakeUP Palettes, MAC Paint Pots & some BM Beauty Eyeshadow Pigments.
My Liz Earle Skin Care
♥ The Tower ♥
The make up tower is exactly the same as last time and the drawers are bought indiviudally from Muji. I get quite a lot of emails about these so i will give you the links from the Muji website. My tower is made up of 3 of these A4 single drawers here (link) and then two drawers which are split in half which they dont have on the website but they do have similar alternatives. 
♥ My Perfume Collection ♥
I have accumulated quite a few perfumes since i did my storage blog post last time and when i did my Perfume Collection (link). I am going to be doing a blog post about my lastest additions soon! Ones that i currently love are Juicy Couture 'Viva la juicy' and 'Lola' by Marc Jacobs.
♥ Top Drawers: Mascara/Eyeliners and Eyeshadows & Palettes ♥
These two drawers contain my mascaras and eyeliners and loose eyeshadws and palettes with eyeshadows in that i reach for most days. I think these drawers need a clear out, especially the mascaras as i seem to only use the one which is my Rimmel Day 2 Night Mascara (Which i love!)
♥ Second Drawers: Lipglosses and Lipsticks ♥
The Lipgloss drawer rarely gets used as i am not really a gloss girl i much prefer my lipsticks, but this drawer houses balms and lip treatments if i am ever in need! The right hand side drawer is my lipstick drawer. I dont own half as many lipsticks as i used to, especially MAC ones (if you can remember from my Lipstick Loving Blog Post from last year as i had a massive clear out and got rid of the ones that i didnt wear or only wore occasionally. Now i know that each colour i own will be used and loved! 
♥ Third Drawer: Face products ♥
This drawer contains all my face products including foundation, powder, concealer, bronzers and face illuminators/highlighters. I am currently rotating my foundation between MAC Studio Fix Fluid and Illamasqua Skin Base (Which i will do a review of!). 
♥ Fourth Drawer: Blushes ♥
Probably my most favourite drawer! Ask me that a year ago and i would have probably said lipsticks! All the blushes here i absolutely love, especially the MAC Mineralize ones, my Illamasqua Cream blushes and also my NARS ones (Which i have a blog post coming up of!) I wear each and every one of these blushes and rotate them daily (or at least try to!) 
♥ Bottom Drawer: Mineralize Skinfinishes ♥
This drawer isnt half as full as it used to be! This used to be jam packed with MAC Mineralize Skinfinishes! I rarely used them, i just thought they looked pretty in the pan so again i was sensible and got rid of the ones that were left unloved leaving me with ones that i know i use! My most favourite/loved at the minute include By Candlelight which is a gorgeous pale pink highlight and of course the famous Stereo Rose!
♥ Letter Rack ♥
My lovely letter rack from TK Maxx houses most of my eye products! Including my MAC eyeshadow palette (Yes i now only have the one!) MAC paint pots in vintage selection and painterly, my Sleek MakeUP Palettes and also some pigment samples from BM Beauty. 
♥ Skin Care /Brushes ♥
Just a little snap of my most reached for Liz Earle skincare which i use before applying my make up and my brush holder which has my MAC brushes in (& a Sigma Flat Top Kabuki!)

So thats everything! As i said, I probably own way less makeup now than i did a year and a half ago, I think it comes down to me being much more sensible and only owning products that i know i love and will get used. 

If you have spyed any products that you would like a review on then please let me know!

Thanks for reading!

  6. I like having a compact (well sort of!) selection of make up, I feel like it's such a waste having tonnes of things I don't use and it's like looking at wasted money. I like to look at my make up collection and think, yeah I really love all these things! Your letter rack is lovely, I've been meaning to get one for a while for my UD palettes. This really is quite unimportant but I really like how nice all the Liz Earle skin products look together, especially with the colours of your bedroom!

  13. I love your collection Sinead - it's so good to know that you only have things you use and love, because it sometimes upsets me when people have make up, most of which you know never sees the light of day!

    And I also love how you keep boxes - I keep boxes but in a separate place - it looks quite nice to put the products back in, I might do that too! :)

    I absolutely love this post if you couldn't tell ;) Could you do a blush or perfume overview please? :)
