Makeup Collection

Ever since re-decorating my bedroom and getting some decent storage i've been wanting to do a makeup collection post. Now that it's been a few months and i'm happy with everything I thought it was about time I did it. Warning this one is going to be picture heavy! 
 I did a post recently on my Dressing Table so I don't want to go into too much detail on that here. I do keep my muji drawers which I keep products that i'm currently testing or using a lot in my everyday routine. I also keep all my eye bases such as my MAC Paint Pots in these drawers since I use those most days. I also keep some bits in a makeup bag because I often travel between my parent's houses.
I also have a drawer in my dressing table which is wear I keep things that i'm currently using, I tend to swap out products in here ever so often. 
On my shelf I keep my eyeshadow palettes in letter holders because they're too big to store anywhere else, it is also easy to grab them when i'm in a rush. The letter holders are from WH Smith a few years ago, i'm sure they still do similar ones. 
The bulk of my makeup I keep in my Ikea Alex unit, I would definitely recommend this unit as you can fit so much in it and it doesn't take up a lot of space. The top thin drawers I keep makeup in, the best is skincare, bodycare and haircare. I can do a separate post on that if anybody what's to see it. I also have an acrylic nail polish rack which I keep my most used polishes in. 
The top draw I keep foundations, bb creams, tinted moisturisers, primers, powders and concealers. To separate everything i've used old beauty boxes. I like that I can open the draw and see everything I have clearly.
I've organised each draw in the same way. I've got all cheek products together, then eye products and finally lip products. I like the fact that I still have space to add things whilst still being able to see everything.
The last draw I have the rest of my nail polishes in, as you can see i've been collecting (hoarding) nail polishes for a long time! 

So that's my makeup collection, i've tried to keep this short as possible, if you would like to see more in depth look at certain things like a blush collection, let me know in the comments and I will do that soon.
