Collection as of January 2010

By  |  135 Comments

Oooh I hope I don’t live to regret making this post!

So, BY FAR my number one requested video to do is a collection video. If you’ve watched me for awhile, you know that in the past I haven’t exactly been the biggest fan of collection or haul videos, and the last time I did a collection video (June 2007, eesh! It’s grown.. a bit. hah) I got a TON of remarks on having too much, spending too much money, etc, etc.. and, quite honestly, that video has a small, itty bitty fraction of the amount of stuff I have acquired since!

Anyways, because it is my most requested video, and because I love you guys, I’m giving in. *deep breath* I’m not going to lay everything out and show every color because we would literally be here for years, but I will show you my set up, how I store everything and all the drawers of stuff (mind you, it’s not that neat)

Please don’t ask me “how much did all of that cost?” or any of that. I don’t know, and honestly, I didn’t buy all of it. A lot of the things you see were sent as samples or were bought at discounted prices (like the MAC).

Also, since this is my collection, I am showing you it just as it is. I didn’t bother to clean anything up in the drawers or what have you, you get to see it just as it looks when I open the drawer :) It’s an organized mess! haha.

Okay, enough disclaimer nonsense, on to the pics!

Here is my desk. This is where I film all my tutorials. The desk is from Ikea, Mirror is a light up one from Conair. Florescent Light is from Lowes I think, and the light I use is meant for kitchen and day (pretty sure!) Nail racks can be purchased from any nail site (my favorite is head2toebeauty. this is the 90 count rack.)

Close up of full desk.

Pigment Rack/ extra polishes.

Left side. MAC Palettes, Everyday powders, OCC airbrush minis, hand sanitizer, and a few Coastal Scents Palettes.

Right Side. Baby Wipes, Tripod for filming, brushes.

Closeup of brushes. This is a roundabout thing from Pampared Chef, it’s meant for kitchen tools but I LOVE it for my brushes!!

First Drawer Left side. I use silverware separates to hold my stuff. This is Kryolan, FaceFront, random MAC and other random things.

2nd drawer left side. MAC CCBs, Ben Nye, Fluidlines, Naked Pigments, more Kryolan, and other random stuff.

3rd drawer left side. MAC powders and skinfinishes, MUFE flash palette, random moisturizers and powders

4th drawer left side. Lip stuff, a whole mess of lip stuff that is totally unorganized (this is why I never know what to do for lip color, haha)

1st drawer right side. Eyeliners, Lipliners, Mascaras and Primers.

2nd drawer right side. Liquid liners and glitterliners, random NYX lipsticks.

3rd drawer right side. Loose powders, some primers, and a random eye makeup remover that shouldn’t be there.

4th drawer right side. Foundations and concealers.

5th drawer right side. random NYX double sided liners, some stuff I haven’t reviewed, and some full size OCC airbrush colors.

and finally, 6th drawer right side. Water Based palettes, ben nye, etc.

Ohmigosh, and were done! Well.. almost. I guess I could show you in the bookshelf behind me in my videos..

This has 6 spaces, but the bottom two were covered up :) Perfumes, Extra makeup, makeup I have no use having out all the time(different colored foundations, etc), candles, cases, blah blah blah

And (because I know it will be asked) a picture of my nail polishes:

Click for full size :)

Woo! All done :) Hope you enjoyed that! Now no more for another 2 1/2 years ;) haha just kidding!
I will have the video up for this tomorrow :)

    could you please do drug store tutorials for ones who can’t afford high end

      All you have to do is write down the colors she uses and find drug store equivalents. Pretty much any Wet and Wild Palettes in any color work just as well.

    Hi! My name’s Kaitlyn and I’d just like to say that I’m a huge fan of yours. About two years ago I started to get into makeup, and your videos have taught me just about everything I know. I’m thinking about becoming an esthetician when I’m older; and I’d like to thank you for showing me the one thing I want to do for a living. You’re truly an inspiration and I just want to say thanks, and keep it up!

    holy smokes that’s a big collection! However you may want to wash your brushes, they look like they haven’t been cleaned in a while and that can cause bacteria transfer which is dangerous for your skin. I have a post all about it on my blog you should check it out…
