Here’s the motherlode. I’ve mentioned many times that I have a lot of eye shadows – over 600 – it is the most abundant makeup category that I own. I just love eye shadows and it’s the area of my face that I spend the most time applying makeup. I’ll keep this introduction brief and just let the pictures do the talking.
It took me over 2 hours just to sort and photograph the whole eye shadow collection and probably another 4 to edit everything. Usual disclaimer: this isn’t meant to show off. It was actually quite a beneficial exercise for me to display all my eye shadows visually. Warning: photo heavy post! (50 images)
First, I just want to show how I store the bulk of my eye shadows. Palettes are placed vertically inside these acrylic stands:
Single shadows are placed into narrow drawers:
And wider drawers accommodate larger pans:
Onto the eye shadow stash, in no particular order (although I did try to group brands together but failed and then gave up!):
Phew! Was that as good for you as it was for me? As you can see, I like a wide variety of eye shadows – some of my drugstore brands perform better than the higher end ones! This is just an overview – I’ll be featuring some of these eye shadows in future posts with detailed photos, information and swatches. I already have a few topic ideas (hint: taupes, taupes, taupes!)
