I did this last year and it’s pretty amusing to see how not much has changed.
Glasses, book, fineliner pen, purse, iphone, mirror, lush lipbalm, Lomo fisheye 2 camera, oyster card holder, mini notepad, gloves/mittens, sennheiser earphones
(My umbrella and keys are missing because they are downstairs by the door)
Benefit Hello Flawless powder, MAC Studio Sculpt concealer NC15, Benefit Browzings kit, Benefit Dandelion blush, MAC Knight Divine eyeshadow, MAC Blacktrack Fluidline eyeliner, Urban Decay Primer Potion (taken out of the stupid bottle), MAC 239 brush, MAC 217 brush, MAC 210 brush, MAC 266 brush, MAC Softwash Grey pigment, MAC Silver Fog pigment, MAC Milan Mode lipstick
(This is only my general everyday makeup. As you can tell, I like MAC!)
And this is where my most-used makeup is stored. I used to have it all in a makeup bag but I could never find anything, so I got this small shelving unit from an office supplier. I have compartments dedicated to eyeliners, eyeshadows, pigments and lipsticks.
