Happy Thursday, fam! It’s that part of the week again – time for another youtube video all about BEAUTY. Ya know the drill. Today is a video that came highly requested on my instagram stories early this week. I was cleaning out my den and getting my office together because I’ve been putting it off for a while – and I asked you guys if you would be interested in seeing a video of my full makeup collection, talking through my products, chatting with you about what I love and don’t love, that type of thing and it was a 100% YES on the poll. SO YESTERDAY I SAT DOWN AND FILMED IT. It was so much fun to go through all my drawers and remember which products I have that I may have forgotten about that used to be my holy grails and which fails I am still hanging onto for some reason. I hope you guys enjoy watching this video as much as I loved making it for you! It’s definitely a long one (we are talking almost 45 min, whoops) so grab a snack and a cozy blanket and dive in!

HOW I STORE MY MAKEUP:
So, I obviously have a large collection of makeup because hello – it’s my job! BUT that means I have to store it somehow and I’ve found an easy system that works for me in our apartment. I will do an updated office and makeup room tour after we move into our new house at the end of this year, but for now, this will have to do!!
This vanity is literally amazing. It’s SO pretty and I like the vintage aesthetic it brings my whole room. It isn’t super expensive, either, which is awesome. When looking for a good vanity – I really looked at the drawer space. If I get a new vanity when we move, I will definitely be looking for one that has drawers all the way too the floor. Even thought these are pretty spacious, I still feel like I am running out of room for the sheer amount of makeup I have in my collection. If you have a modest amount of makeup, though, this will be perfect for you. SHOP my exact vanity here.
This utility cart is actually the bomb. A roommate of mine in college had one next to her bed and I was obsessed with it. When I was decorating our little apartment a year and a half ago, I knew I needed to have one. This is cream to match my vanity and it holds my makeup perfectly while also letting me stack products on top (like my necklaces and such). SHOP the exact utility cart here.
This is also from Wayfair. It’s the perfect storage container to hold all of my daily makeup products. I like to keep the products that I use on the daily in reach so that I am not searching through my entire vanity every time I want to find my foundation or highlighter. I go through phases with certain makeup so I just like having it handy. It also makes it easy to pack for weekend trips that way! SHOP my exact tray here.
These are fabulous for holding makeup brushes!! I have a ton of copper mugs for some reason (I actually don’t really know where they all came from because neither my husband nor I drink so it’s odd) so I repurposed them from drinking cups to makeup brush holders!! I think they are so stunning on a vanity because they have that copper/rose gold feel I love so so much. SHOP very similar mugs here.
PIN THIS FOR LATER:
