Organizing My Makeup Collection: Eyeshadow Drawer

Greetings from the Dark Side ^_^

One of my goals for this year is to have my makeup more organized. I have had makeup products all over my room with no proper organization. Last week I finally managed to organize most of my lip and face products into one drawer. This week's challenge was to organize most of my eyeshadows in one drawers, so I will show you how that went.

These first two photos are BEFORE shots. I had so much crap in these drawers it is not even funny! I had skin care products, cotton pads, my deodorant (O_o")...I don't know how all this came to be in the same drawer...

And I think the most random thing in this drawer...umeshu (Plum Wine). Why the heck is there alcoholic beverages in my makeup drawer???! I don't know!

 After A LOT of cleaning, I managed to make this drawer decently organized.





In these little plastic drawers I keep most of my indie makeup. I have Fyrinnae, Victorian Disco Cosmetics, Shiro Cosmetics, Glamour Doll Eyes, Pumpkin & Poppy, Unbound Eden Cosmetics, and Aromaleigh. I am just showing you the top two drawers. 

As you can see, I don't keep eyeliners, primers, mascaras, or most of my MAC paint pots/Maybelline Color Tattoos in this drawer. I keep all that stuff on a separate plastic drawer that also has all my Lime Crime eyeshadows/eyeliners. Why? Because they are products I use very often and so I keep them on the desk I sit on when I do my makeup. :)

What do you think? It is a pretty big difference, right?

  1. Looks good :) There is nothing more satisfying (to me anyway lol) than reorganising all my makeup. It's therapeutic! Plus if it's organised you can see what you have and use it all more easily I think.

    1. Yeah, a storage space will make it so much easier to organize. That is why it has taken me so long to organize my makeup to begin with.

  6. It looks very neat after you are done. The problem I have with my organization is keeping them neat cause as I go through them, I make a mess again, lol.

    1. I don't. I don't own any full-size MAC glitters, although one of my friends gave me a sample of a different glitter.

    2. I think you might be referring to the two MAC pigments I own. They are not glitter, just loose pigments. If that is to what you mean, I have Melon and Partylicious pigments from MAC.

    I really need to organise my make up drawer. I need to get hold of some storage bits for it first though, mind if I ask where you get yours?
