I always wanted a really nice makeup desk like what you see people have on Pinterest, and over the last two years I’ve been working on making that happen! I’m nowhere near finished, but I thought I’d share what I’ve done so far!I guess this will also be a little makeup collection tour also. First up is my nail polish collection. This is only half of my actual collection. I have taken half of them down so I can put my eyeshadows, powders, ect, up on display better. I use OPI and ULTA3 the most so that’s why I’ve left them up. I got my wall storage from a woman on Facebook. She was closing down her nail salon and I was able to get three for $30 (one is in storage as it doesn’t fit on my wall).
1ST ROW L-R: Red Shatter, Red my Fortune Cookie, Did it on ‘Em, Mermaid’s Tears, Uh Oh Roll Down the Window, Shatter the Scales, Fly, Blue My Mind, Super Bass Shatter (x2), Sparrow me the Drama, Pink Friday, Kreme de la Kremlin & OPI Scores a Goal.

Next up are my eyeshadows, powders, glitters and eyebrow kits! I have been looking for eyeshadow storage for so long. The cheapest thing I could find that would match all of my other storage was a $20 letter holder from Office Works and I would probably need 2-3 of those for my palettes. I couldn’t even find anything that was a reasonable price for my powders, so when I realised that I could just use one of my nail polish holders I was so happy!

So that is EVERYTHING in my wall storage! Now on to my desk. I don’t own a lot of brushes, I’m in the process of buying more from eBay and iHerb. My brushes are Real Techniques Replicas from eBay, Elf, Nude by Nature and random eBay brushes. They are just in a glass jar from a dollar store. I only keep a my everyday makeup on my desk. The rest of my collection is in my desk draw (which I won’t show in this blog post as it is not finished yet. I still need to buy organisers). I got the organizer from Spotlight a few years ago for $15. I’m not sure if they still sell it.

So that’s my makeup desk! There are a few things I haven’t shared yet, like the small set of draws on my desk. I want to get new ones soon so I will do another post once I have that. I will also share where I store all my skin care and hair care products! It has taken me so long to get this desk looking the way it is! Two years ago my makeup desk was a tiny little desk in my laundry. Now, we have rearranged our bedroom and I have it in there! I would absolutely love to see your makeup set up so please comment a link below to yours, or you can tweet me pictures!
