One of my favorite questions ever, besides "what's in your bag" is "how do you store your make up? For a long time I'd been using those tupperware-like storage boxes, but I decided to upgrade when I saw these bright red lacquered boxes on sale at Crate & Barrel. I use a medium sized box for my lippies. I use the tops of gift boxes to fill with lippies and then stack them on top of each other. Here's part one of my lippies. I forgot the other box.
Layer 1: MAC Lip Palettes, Stila Lip Glazes, Vincent Longo Lip Stains, Clinique Palette, Soft Lips/ Kiss My Face Stick Glosses, Clinique PINK Bamboo Lipsticks, MAC Pro Longwear Lustre Lipcolours, Lancome Color Fever Lipsticks, Mini Lancome Juicy Tube, Mini Bobbi Brown Lipstick.
Layer 2: Bobbi Brown Creamy Lipsticks, Bobbi Brown Lipsticks, MAC Mattenes, MAC Slimshines, Tarte 24/7 Lip Color, Bobbi Brown Tinted Lip Balm, Lancome Lipstick.
Layer 3: Tarte Mini Glosses, Cargo Plant Love Botanical Lipstick, Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Lipsticks, YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick, Vincent Longo Perfect Shine Lip Glosses, Vincent Longo Diamond Lipgloss, Christian Dior Creme de Gloss, Estee Lauder Lip Pencil, MAC Lip Pencils, NARS Lip Pencil, Cover Girl Lip Stain, Wei East Mini Lip Gloss.
I keep the more expensive stuff in the boxes for some reason. In the other two non-lacquered boxes, one of which is a tupperware container and the other a gift box, I keep my MAC Lipsticks and some other random ones I have in my "rotation." I keep my lipglosses upside down so that I can see the color better when I'm searching for a specific color. How do you store your make up? Tell me in the comments.
There's more to come...
