This is my makeup collection and storage. I have been collecting makeup since I was 16.
I don’t exactly remember when I got into the makeup craze. I know I was exposed to makeup because I was part of Chinese Dance when I was like 10 years old. Back then, I was using my mommy’s makeup and some makeup item which can be cheaply bought at Aries.
I remember scrimping to get a Kose eyeshadow (which cost ~$30) and my pocket money was like $5 a day that time. The only reason why I bought 2 Kose products was because Ayumi was the face of Kose at that time.
I started using drugstore brands like Maybelline, Fasio and ZA. I could still remember that Maybelline liquid foundation was so thick that I could feel a pimple forming by the end of the day. Plus it oxidises and leave a grey tone on my face (boo!).
I remember at that point bestie has just got her new job and it requires her to have makeup on, so our weekends were spent going to Watsons to look at the new releases from these brands.
Slowly, I progressed to falling in love with Benefit & MAC. I always wanted to try MAC after I stumbled across many Youtube Makeup gurus raving about MAC. I remember my ex-colleagues dissuading me from getting due to its price…so I never got to try their items. However, the bad thing about MAC is their service staff, they will not entertain you at all. I remember going to MAC to get a nude lipstick. I was snubbed by the staff, I will be totally okay if they are serving customers BUT the store was empty and they choose to chat amongst themselves. *rage face*
I walked by Anna Sui counter and the girls there (Hi Germaine and Jaybee) were super nice and helpful! End up spending a bomb there and getting almost every product and every collection. End up Germaine was transferred to Shu Uemura and Jaybee left. Didn’t really like the other girls there so I stopped getting their products. So most of my makeup collection are old Anna Sui packaging.
Currently, my favorite brands are YSL, Lancome and Laneige. I have a huge pile of makeup as seen in the photo above.
My most used makeup products are
Foundation: Laneige BB Cushion, Lancome foundation
Lipstick: MAC Flamingo, YSL no 8
Blush: Anna Sui
Eyeliner: K- Palette 24 hour pencil liner
Eyeshadow: Benefit Buckle Bunny
I am using this acrylic storage system I got from Howard’s Storage World. However, I think their products are very expensive. I will probably do a skincare collection (it has a space of its own!) in the upcoming Makeup Monday posts.
Share with my your makeup collection and storage and what products I should try too.

I enjoy watching beauty videos on Youtube. It helped me to learn the basis on makeup.
I am a thrill seeker, and I enjoy roller coaster rides. I love history and would try to visit the museums once in a while.
In my free time, I enjoy photography (not professionally), scrapbooking, playing with make up.
