As I’m moving in two months, I plan on doing an epic destash of my collection. I thought it would be fun to do a “before” post, both as a reference for me, so I can feel accomplished by seeing everything I will downsize, and also to share (I always like looking at other people’s makeup collections). Most of my makeup is organized on my bathroom counter in these acrylic organizers from Amazon. I keep my skincare in a drawer underneath the counter and the closet right next to my bathroom. This is going to be a very picture-heavy post!
Organizer 1 (L to R)
Blushes upon blushes.
Eyeliners in the upper left, most-used eye products right next to it, sunscreens and balms in the left front, (tinted) lip balms and other lip products, sample-size Benefit Fake-Up, and bareMinerals 5-in-1 BB Cream Eyeshadow.
Highlighters and concealers on the left, lip gloss on the right.
More highlighters/illuminators, setting powders.
Primers and bronzers.
Eye creams with a couple palettes on the left-side with face brushes for cleansing. A few foundations in the back right. Lip products in front of that (yeah, I like Givenchy LE lipsticks).
Irregularly shaped lip stuff (Guerlain Rouge G, Tata Harper Lip and Cheek Tint), drugstore lip products with Clinique Black Honey Almost Lipstick mixed in there on right (since I think consistency is similar to the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balms).
Miscellaneous larger lip products with balms and other minis.
In front, I just have some miscellaneous products and some products I’m in the middle of trying out.
Some skincare, masks, and makeup wipes, with my most-used travel makeup bags tucked in the back (can only see a bit of them).
The Shelves. Thankfully, I don’t have to share this closet with anyone, and it’s right next to the bathroom, so I can guiltlessly hog most of it. My parents store some stuff in here, too, but it’s not pictured.
L to R: Masks, eyeshadow palettes, lipsticks, beautyblender / miscellaneous.
L to R: Haircare, couple perfume minis, skincare, sunscreens, lip balms.
L to R: Hair straightener, extra toothbrush, brush cleaning stuff, lotions, nail polishes, jewelry, back-up train case.
That’s all of my “in-rotation” makeup! I have a lot of backup stuff from subscription boxes stocked away, but…that will make for another post, because this one is so long already!
See any familiar products? Any tips on destashing?
