Makeup Storage: Black Eyeliner Obsession!

Re-arranging my makeup is one of my favourite ways of chilling out, sad I know, but I find it really theraputic!  I recently decided that the way I was storing my eye pencils wasn't satisfying me enough (ha) and so I decided to have a little bit of a re-organise and it was only during that I really I have an unhealthy amount of my black pencil liners in my possession!
So I used to store them in old candle jars mixed in with other shades, but I decided it'd be much better if I stored them all in one drawer which is easily accessible and allows me to see them fully (rather than just the tips sticking out of a pot).

I've kept all of my coloured eye pencils in the pots, but now separated into lip pencils, bright pencils and darker pencils.  All of my blacks are now stored in a drawer of my clear acrylic Muji unit which I massively recommend to anyone who is looking for new ways to store their makeup.

I honestly don't know quite how I managed to collect so damn many black kohls but as I wear them daily it's not surprising.  I have a blog post to follow showing you my top 3 favourite black pencil liners EVER so stay tuned for that ;)

How do you store your pencil liners?

  6. Oh I do love a bit of makeup storage. That is A LOT of black kohl pencils though LOL You've probably got enough to last the rest of your life! LOL

  7. You do have a lot! I have a smaller Muji insert that I keep all of mine in - I don't know how I accumulate so many, I think they're just one of those things that you always think you can't have enough of! xx

  8. I'm more of a foundation hoarder, so my pencil liners fit into the makeup-bag I use daily.

    British seem to have a thing for the black eyeliner/kohl used tightly all around the eye, but you are one of the few whom it really suits!

  12. I keep mine in a pot, but I agree it's so hard to find the one you're looking for! I definitely need to invest in more clear units to make it a lot easier.

  15. I would kill for your eyeliner collection! You can never have too many black eyeliners, in my opinion! I store mine in a pot I made and painted in junior school. :)

  18. Waiting to move to upgrade all of my makeup storage. ^^ BUT for now, I'm keeing all of mine in a glass handpainted jar.

  19. Don't you just love a makeup organizer! I swear us girls seem to collect shoes and makeup! hahaha I love it though! Another great place to get organizers are The Container store. They have great ideas to keep organized! Cant wait to see what your top 3 eyeliners are! I am always searching for the best products!

  20. Very nice! I think i'm the only one in the world that keeps the brushes I use on the bottom drawer of my acrylic organizer. My house is a dust magnet and it just floats... my brushes are too valuable for even one speck of dusk!

  28. This is amazing collection! I was such a junkie for black eyeliners and I was using them every single day and most of the time ended up having panda eye so now I don't use them that often. I would love to see your favorite eyeliners
