Makeup In Manila's 10 Days Of Beauty Tag

Hello Pinay Beauties! I recently did a makeup tag on my Instagram account and it is the 10 Days Of Beauty Tag which shows my makeup collection but it was separated per category. Honestly, if I would show you my makeup collection, it will not fit in one square photo. So if you want to take a peek at my collection, keep reading. :)

I actually really enjoy doing tags like these, because they make me realize how much stuff I have and control my makeup hoarding urges! Yes, I collect makeup but my collection grew A LOT for the past year. I sometimes feel that I make blogging/reviewing products as an excuse, but I have a lot that I have to purchase a new makeup storage for them. I actually admire people who were able to declutter and keep their collection into a reasonable number of products, but I am too attached to my makeup that I can't let them go. I know, I know. But I was inspired by Tati's Makeup Graveyard concept and I might do that as soon as I can.

Anyway, thank you so much Maj of Makeup In Manila for this tag! Here are my entries:

DAY 1: FAVORITE MAKEUP PRODUCTS

You've seen me use these products over and over again, whether it is a video or blog tutorial, as well as FOTD posts. These are staples in my makeup routine and I really picked out a product for each category because I know that I can create a whole makeup look just by using these products.

DAY 2: PRIMERS, FOUNDATIONS AND POWDERS

I had to do 2 separate posts on these just because I have a lot of base products, as well as powders (both pressed and loose). Before I am really into loose powders, but now I prefer pressed powders more. I also store my concealers on the same box as my pressed powders so you can see some of them here.

DAY 3: BLUSHES, HIGHLIGHTERS AND BRONZERS
Here are all my blushes, bronzers and highlighters. I just started adding more bronzers/contouring powder and highlighters recently, I have been addicted to bronzing and contouring my face. Before I really didn't like it, but one I was able to figure out my face shape, I just love how contouring changes my appearance.

DAY 4: EYESHADOW COLLECTION

Here are all of my eyeshadows. The first palette I owned was the Stila one which was a gift from my bestfriend, and my favorite would be the Its Judy Time Palette. It is just so versatile and you can do a lot of looks using that palette. I have also have an 88-Eyeshadow Pallete from KKCenterHk buried under there. I noticed that most of my palettes are neutral ones, but I need to experiment more with colors.

DAY 5: MASCARAS
Yes, I am a mascara junkie. If you have short, straight lashes like me, you know the importance of mascaras. I have back ups fro my favorite Covergirl Clump Crusher and Maybelline One By One, and I haven't opened the L'Oreal and Pixy ones.

DAY 6: LIPSTICK COLLECTION
Oh lipsticks! My number 1 happiness. These are all of my lipsticks, and if you wanted to see more of them, like my favorites, colors, etc. check out this album of my 30 Days Of Lipstick Tag.

DAY 7: LIP BALMS, LIP STAINS AND LIP GLOSSES
These are not all of them I think, for starters my fave Snoe Beauty Bedside Beso Balm was tucked under my pillows so I couldn't find it when I took the photo. I am a matte lipstick kind of girl but I love putting gloss on top of it, it just gives my lips extra dimension and body.

DAY 8: TOOLS - BRUSHES & SPONGES
Here are all of my brushes and sponges. I already gave some of my brushes away when I got the xoBeauty brushes, so most of these are from that brand and Real Techniques. I wish to own Sigma brushes someday, but for now I am super happy with my collection. Also, that Real Techniques sponge is awesome, although mine is already worn out so I purchased a new one.

DAY 9: FAVORITE NAIL POLISH COLORS
Here is half of my collection. When I was starting out, I love blacks and reds, but now I am more into neutrals and berry colors. I also love mint greens and pinks, and sometimes I add glitter on the accent nail just for a little sparkle.

DAY 10: PICTURE OF YOUR VANITY
As I have said on my post, I do not have a proper vanity area, so here is my makeup storage. I recently bought this because there was no space on my old storage. Anyway, for reference, here is how they are organized inside:

Top - Camera, lightbox, skincare and hair products plus the pink bag contains my nail polishes.
1st drawer - Primer, foundation, loose powders, brushes and other tools (mirror, makeup wipes, tweezers, etc.).
2nd drawer - My contact lenses, eyebrow stuff, pressed powder, concealer, blush & bronzers
3rd drawer - Eyeliners, mascaras and lip products.
4th (bottom) drawer - Eyeshadow palettes, false lashes and some makeup bags.

This little corner is my makeup area. It is in front of a window so there is natural light. This is where I film or do photoshoots, it also has outlets so there is where I set up my lightbox to take product photos, etc. I actually just claim this as my area, because it is also near my side of the bed.

And that is it for this tag! I have another tag that I will do in the next couple of days called Makeup Hashtag Game by About Face by Pau. So if you are not following my Instagram, you should! :)

Thank you so much for reading loves! I have received a lot of request for reviews, so my next post will be a product review. Stay pretty Pinay Beauties, and I will see you in my next post! Goodluck!

-- Maica :)
