Update Makeup Collection & Storage - Casey Holmes

Hey beauties!!
So every time i sit at my makeup vanity, i always think of ways i can change up my storage.  I posted a makeup collection video not too long ago and in that video i mentioned how i didn't love the black mirror i had at the time. Check out my previous makeup collection video here

Recently I've purchased a new mirror and I'm in LOVE with it! It's from Vanity Girl Hollywood -After getting my new mirror i realized that my Ikea MALM drawer was just too small for the mirror, so i switched it out with a plain table from Ikea that i had.  I also started storing all my makeup in my Alex 9 drawer from Ikea. Im loving this new set up because i have a lot of room, and of course, a TON of storage.

A lot of you have asked for an update makeup collection ever since i changed my filming set up. I didnt want to actually film a whole new video since i just posted one not too long ago- so i figured i would do a post on here and let you see how i store my makeup now! Keep in mind this is a big hobby of mine & its what i love to do! Which is why i have so much ;)

Starting with the items that are stored on top of the Alex 9 drawers- I have a 5 drawer storage unit from Muji and i absolutely love this! Its a clear acrylic drawer and its great for storing all of my eye products such as eyeliners, shadows, & mascara. I also use the bottom drawer to store some of my lipglosses and lip liners! I use to have 3 muji drawers all together but i have worked my way down to only using one! The lipstick holder is also from Amazon

Now behind the muji drawer i have my MAC brush cleanser and extra brushes that are stored in a cup that i got from Target. You can find them in the Sonia Kashuk section. I love the little brushes on the cups i think it adds a cute touch.

Moving on to the actual table that my mirror sits on, I like to keep this part pretty simple. Just keeping my most used face and eye brushes, 
MAC fix plus, and my beauty blenders! Ive recently put business cards of a company that i get my false eyelashes from on my mirror because i dont want to loose them!

Now we are going to the first drawer of my Alex 9 drawer from Ikea and this is where i store all of my palettes. I LOVE the fact that they are all stored away and you cant really see them. I have a lot of palettes ranging from NARS, MAC, Urban Decay, & BH Cosmetics. I also store Sigma eyeshadow bases in here as well. There is a lot of room in these drawers so you can stack your palettes up very nicely.

The second drawer is one of my favorites! Its basically my "everyday" drawer & its pretty unorganized. I keep all of my most used makeup in here and i also store my false lashes. I have things ranging from eyeshadow primers, liners, lipsticks, glosses, etc. I love this drawer because it holds a lot of my favorite things! ;)

The next drawer is for all of my liquid/cream face products. I have my foundations, BB creams, liquid highlighters, and concealers in here. I usually have at least 2 of every foundation i purchase because im always self tanning or out in the sun so my color  fluctuates.

Moving on i have another face drawer and this stores all of my powders! Im a total junkie with face products & im always wanting to try out new things. Behind the powders i just have samples, back ups, or products that I havent had the chance to try out yet. I also like to store my setting sprays and my HUGE brush from eco tools. 

Next drawer is my next favorite because it has all my blushes and bronzers in it. Im a blush and bronzer freak as well so i do have quite a few in here! It ranges from drugstore to high-end and i love all of these products!

Now the next drawer is not as exciting but i still love it lol This is where i store my extensions! The ones i use are by Bellami Hair. I dont like to toss my extensions in a random spot because it can cause a big, tangled mess. So i store them flat in this drawer and it keeps the hair nice and protected.

Next drawer is for all of my makeup bags. I have one from Tory Burch, Michael Kors, Forever 21,  Benefit, Soap & Glory, etc. I always have to have a lot of options when it comes to picking a makeup bag. 

Next drawer holds my curling irons. I have a ton of these and 98% of them are from Nume! I love their wands and they are literally all i use. Im so happy i finally have a place to hide these because i dont like when i see cords hanging out everywhere.

The final drawer is definitely a random one. I have heat pads in here for my hot tools, straighteners, bobby pins, hair ties, teasing combs, regular combs, etc. Its a pretty messy drawer but i always find what i need in here! lol

So that was my updated makeup collection! I hope you all enjoyed and please follow my blog for more posts that you might not see on my beauty channel! & dont forget to share with fellow bloggers & friends! ;) 

Love you all! xoxo
