Taking inspiration from Kahani and Tine's stash mound, I've decided to also share with you girls on where I stash my stash. Do bear in mind, it's nowhere near as neat as Tine's but here's to hoping you girls won't mind too much. =P
As you can see, mine's a built-in dresser, complete with a big mirror (loves) which has storage racks behind it, and a small fluorescent lamp above which provides for excellent lighting when applying makeup. Since Kahani and I started our blog, my makeup stash has boomed so much I have had to add more storage area, hence the little plastic rack at the bottom right. =P
Read on for (many, many) more photos!
Top of my dresser: This is where I put all the daily necessities. Products that I reach out for on an almost daily basis, such as my moisturiser, toner, lipsticks, hairbrush etc. Some other stuff, like Frederik Fekkai are also almost-daily necessities. Love!
A closer shot of the top of my dresser: Watches, Simple eye cream, lipbalms, lipstick stash *hehe*. Can anyone spot my Face Oasis? Vaseline and Lucas' Papaw Ointment. And ooh.. you girls won't believe this. But my hairbrush? RM7 from Watson's in Phuket. It's lasted me err.. 4 years? Awesome.
Lippies galore: Like I said, I'm a lipstick girl. And the entire lower left corner of the container is dedicated to lipbalms. =P The container I got for RM5 at Daiso (duh), and my first reaction when I saw it was, "It'd be PERFECT for my lipsticks!" =D
Right drawer: Filled to the brim with makeup. There are lots more underneath the first layer which you can't see. But as I'm going to be moving in another couple of months, I'm not really bothered to thoroughly re-organise this. Just a few items you can see - Smashbox's Soft Fusion Lights which I bought off Paris, and Stila's convertible colour in Lillium and Lavshuca palette (thanks Paris!), Shu blush and eyeshadows, Estee Lauder palette etc.
More makeup: After I started blogging, I also started hoarding even MORE makeup, hence the mobile rack to contain the makeup boom. Plus storage space for brushes too. The bigger brush holder is actually a pen holder from Daiso too. Don't you just love that place? And the container right at the top contains even more lipsticks, and glossies. =P
Lippies: Erm.. yea.. well. The lipsticks and glossies which won't fit into the lip storage on my dresser. Mascaras go in here too.
Top drawer: Wokay. This shelf was (initially) meant for the mineral makeup stuff. But with the ever expanding makeup collection, screw mineral exclusivity. So (l-r) it's blush, eyeshadows (plus one blush which can't fit anywhere else anymore), eyeliners and extras.
Lower drawer: (l-r) MAC blush, eyeshadows, more blush (NYX, Cargo and MAC). Blush addict, I am. =P
So there you go, girls. Pretty much almost all the makeup stuff that I have. I have a bit more of skincare products behind the mirror, but I've cleared a lot of it out, so nothing very interesting there.
In a few more months I'll be stashing my makeup mound in another dresser so there might another stash-mound post in the not-so-near future. =P
In the meantime, I'd love to hear your storage ideas. And if you can, blog about it ladies!
