Need More Space?: Tabletop Storage

I've had this setup for a while now. These were both from Walmart and the white unit was under $7 while the black unit was under $4 or $5 if I remember correctly. I needed these for extra storage since my train cases weren't sufficient anymore. I recently reorganized these items and there's more stuff underneath this table on shelves. But that's another story. =) I lined the bottom of the drawers with non-slip padding and also the bottom of each unit to prevent slippage.

I love the back compartment on the top of this. It's the perfect place to put my most often used lippies. Under the flip-top lid is where I put my MAC Colorforms brushes, my concealer palette, EDM Baby Kabuki, custom foundation mixes & my Clinique compacts that have the powder washed out of the pans. I use these to tap in my mineral powders from sample jars and then I can dip my brushes in them. (Oh and those are not passwords on the yellow Post-It note. LoL. They're just shortened book titles)

Two layers of lippies and lip pencils. I have Jordana & NYX lipliners, an NYC lipstick, Revlon Colorstay lipglosses, e.l.f. lipglosses and candy shop tins, Wet & Wild pot glosses, Clinique & Rimmel lipsticks, one Laura Mercier gloss, Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush lipglosses underneath and a MAC clear lipglass (which is sticky but the stickier it is, the longer it lasts. It's my fave gloss to put over anything to help make any color last longer. I used to eat Subway sandwiches with this over a lipstick and my lips would still look good after lunch!)

Wet n Wild & NYC eyeliners, some crappy e.l.f. eyeliners, L.A. Colors 6-color palettes, Jane eyeshadow and Be Pure Mineral Gel liner, NYX Diamond Sparkle lippie in Sparkling Dusty Rose, 3 MAC lipsticks & a script brush I got for my gel liner from Michael's, which was only 96 cents. It has a yellow handle.

The white storage unit holds about half of my Everyday Minerals collection. The top drawer houses my foundation samples and a couple concealers on the side.

Second drawer houses extra eyeshadows. You can stack two layers of sample jars or one layer of mini sized jars.

The third drawer contains more eyeshadow. Coffee Break is a blush I use for eyeshadow and in the back are extra empty jars for future use. Now the Revlon Illuminance Creme Eyeshadow palettes you see here have been reused. What happened was that the heat spoiled my creme shadows so I cleaned it out and pressed some EDM eyeshadows in there using a nickel covered with a T-shirt. They came out pretty but matte powders hold up better than shimmery ones when using the alcohol method.

Fourth drawer holds most of my blushes. The ones I use most of the time I filled into sample sized jars and put them into my daily traincase. Then I tap those out into the empty Clinique compacts you saw earlier. It's better that way so you don't contaminate lids with your used brushes. I wash out the Clinique compacts when I'm done. Check out my video on that.

And the fifth drawer on the bottom holds pressed powders, finishing powders, a jar of custom mixed foundation, and what's my one MAC Paint Pot doing there? LOL. This is an EDM storage place only. Hehe. The MAC compacts hold depotted EDM pressed powders. Notice how I put these delicate items on the bottom? I'm a klutz and butterfingers and I tend to drop things. My pressed All Smiles blush is actually shattered. =(

I also have my makeup brushes on the tabletop as well as some random makeup that fit into little glass votive holders that look like shot glasses. I'll try to do pictures of all my other makeup in the future. Hope you enjoyed! =) What does your tabletop look like?

I envy you, really. It must be so wonderful to get all these beautiful drawers to organize your makeup (not to speak of the beauty cases) *sigh* I think I really have to go "drawer huntin" in a real city (not like the "town" I live in), since there is no way to get anything similar online here in germany.

Greeting ^^
