Vanity Organization, FOTD and "Project X Pan" Update

I have gone through several variations of makeup vanities and internal storage, but I think I have finally found a solution that works for me! I wanted to share some quick pictures to begin with, and if there is interest I can do a longer post on the vanity itself and / or my storage solutions. Let me know what you think!

Drawer #1:
Everyday face products, blushes and eye bases that are not in palette form. And yes, to the left - my birth control! What can I say, it is a convenient place to keep it :)

Throughout the drawers you will see that there is room to grow, and that's the way I like to keep it!

Drawer #2:
Lipsticks, glosses, lipliners, eye liners, stick eye bases, lash adhesive, lashes.

Drawer #3:
Brush roll for storing brushes that are not in use, Bare Minerals eye shadows and complexion enhancers, brush cleansers and some fragrance rollerballs.

The acrylic trays that I use are stackable, so I can fit more in less space ;)

Drawer #4:
Palettes (MAC, Inglot, Nars, Urban Decay, NYX and some Custom made ones) to store eye shadows, blushes, and other face products

Probably one of the best items I used while reorganizing my vanity was this kitchen shelf liner... It makes a HUGE difference in preventing items from moving around, and it also looks cool beneath the clear acrylic.

And... A Sunday afternoon F.O.T.D. after a 4.5 mile hike (lookin' a lil scrubby but I still have most of my "face" on!)...

Project X Pan update... This probably deserves its own post, but I started out really strong, and then I broke!!! Inglot's shopping site launched, and I had to buy a couple palettes... Then, I got a VIB coupon from Sephora, and I just couldn't take it!!! I have been focused on using up items, and have been good about that, but I am still buying new things from time to time. For right now I am putting that project on hold, but maybe I will decide to commit some time this year and really make a dent!


  1. I like your storage solutions, very clean and organized! I'm trying to use up some cosmetics as well, it can get soo boring...

  2. How do you afford all this makeup?! I am so envious!
