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?

    You have an insane collection of black eyeliners, haha! I have mine stored in a little spinning wooden pen pot that I bought from TK Maxx a while a go!

    Oh ym goodness there is loads! You definitely needed that MUJI drawer haha, you need to teach me how to apply kohl effortlessly please?

    I have the same black eyeliner problem! What Muji storage do you have in this picture? It's exactly what I'm looking for and would fit into my little makeup space perfectly 🙂

    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

    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

    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!

    love your collection Katie, your organisation too is just tip top..Muji is the best 🙂

    That's A LOT of black pencil liners indeed! Lovely post. <3

    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.

    What an awesome makeup collection! I tend to stock so many Black Eye liners as well!

  15. March 26, 2015 / 4:21 pm

    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. 🙂

    Oh wow you really do have a lot of black eyeliners! I store mine in a pot like you used to, but I agree it's a little annoying sometimes.

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

    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!

  21. March 27, 2015 / 3:30 am

    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!

  22. March 27, 2015 / 2:38 pm

    Such a beautiful collection!

  23. March 27, 2015 / 6:13 pm

    Love your storage section…makes my heart so happy haha! I have a smaller clear unit that I use, but for me, nail polish is my obsession! 🙂

  24. March 27, 2015 / 8:23 pm

    so envious of all your makeup! Your makeup storage also seems so organised but simple.

    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

    I am the same: Lots of black khols, and I only ever use them to tightline…
