Hi everyone! I'm back today to show you my humble makeup collection! It's not as big as other collections that I've seen (due to lack of funding heheh), but I'm happy to say that it's mine! I would say I'm more of a minimalist when it comes to makeup (owning and wearing) as I prefer a natural look most days. However, there are occasions where I do go all out and create a more glamorous look! Let's take a peek at my collection! :) Disclaimer: Please excuse the terrible lighting in my pictures, sadly my house lacks an abundance of natural light :(

First things first, I keep my makeup in this simple five drawer organizer! I used to stash it all in a big makeup bag but I got sick of always having to dig around for ages trying to find what I needed. I have my own way of organizing my makeup, even though it might be a bit strange ;)

On top of my organizer, I keep my palettes! Of course, I have my Lorac Pro To Go, aka my one true love <3 Such a great everyday palette, and I definitely use it on a daily basis! Forgive me, but I have no clue what the name of my Urban Decay palette is as I got it quite a while ago! It's my "crazier" palette as it has some pretty bold colors in it! Oh, and I have my Naked palette that I forgot to include but I detest the packaging (the first one had that awful furry packaging *shudders*) and I've had it for a few years so it's not in the best shape!

I just realized that Toasted and Smog are both in the Naked One palette! :O

The first drawer of my organizer consists of my two BB creams (Maybelline Dream and Revlon Photoready), Revlon Photoready primer, Girl Meets Pearl highlighter by Benefit, UD Eyeshadow Primer Potion, and Covergirl Ready, Set, Gorgeous foundation. Not really sure what the organization strategy is for this drawer, but it works for me! I'm currently loving the Dream BB cream, it's light and has great coverage :)

The second drawer makes slightly more sense, as it holds my blushes and powders! I have the Tarte Amazonian Clay Airbrush Foundation (I was an idiot and thought I could get away without buying the special brush it comes with, so unfortunately I haven't gotten much use out of this product yet!), some kind of Covergirl setting powder that clearly has come to its end, a Physician's Formula blush that I absolutely love, my holy grail Neutrogena Shine Control Powder, and my lovely Coralista blush.

Third drawer: lip products! I have way too many and to be quite honest I don't wear half of them. I've acquired a few lip glosses but I don't wear them because I don't like the stickiness :( (I must say though, the philosophy Raspberry Sorbet lipgloss smells like heaven) I do like the Nyx Butter Glosses though, and I have Creme Brulee :)

I may not wear lip gloss, but I adore the Revlon balm stains! I have three normal ones, and I just recently bought a pretty plum matte one that I can't wait to try!

And in the same drawer (weird, I know), we have my concealers! I love my Maybelline Instant Age Rewind for my under eyes, and my Fit Me for everywhere else :)

The fourth drawer of my organizer makes the most sense, as it holds all of my eye products! So mascara (Maybelline Pumped Up Colossal, L'Oreal Butterfly, Great Lash Lots of Lashes, and a few samples), brows (Gimme Brow, holla), and eyeliner (mostly UD).

And in the fifth and final drawer are my Benefit minis! They are from the Primping With the Stars kit that I bought from Sephora. I have a mini Stay Don't Stray primer, Some Kinda Gorgeous foundation, Girl Meets Pearl highlighter (I loved it so much I bought the full size which you saw earlier), Benetint, and the Porefessional primer.

Well, that's my entire makeup collection! Comment down below and let me know if you use any of these products! Is your makeup collection bigger or smaller than mine? What are your dream products that you wish you had in your collection? I want to know!

until next time,
