Makeup Collection and Storage: Dorm Edition

Hey Lovelies!!!

So I guess this will be the first post on here where I show you some of the make up that I wear!  Anyways, when I moved into my dorm, I felt that I would be really low on space and that I would have to bring less clothes, makeup, nail polish, EVERYTHING!!  So, like anyone would do in a similar situation, I brought my favorite things and also thing that could be used in various situations.  So here we go!!

So I store all of my makeup in a very small Sterilite 3-drawer container and it all fits really nicely!  I also store my brushes in a little container on top.  For those of you who know of MissGlamorazzi (or Ingrid) on YouTube, you may be familiar with the idea of the brush holder.  It's an old Slatkin & Co. candle from Bath and Body Works that was "glam-ified".  (Here's the link for the video if anyone is curious

Here's where everything is stored!!

So I didn't bring too many brushes- basically just the essentials.  I recently threw away some old brushes that really don't do a good job anymore and replaced them with a few Real Techniques brushes.  They are honestly amazing and I definitely plan to buy more really soon as they work really well and are SO soft!  They are a decent price so if you're willing to spend between $5-$20 on brushes, I totally recommend these!
