Makeup Collection – Day 30 of the 30 Days of Beauty Challenge

Woo! It’s day 30 of the 30 days of beauty challenge and I made it till the end without missing a day. It wasn’t an easy challenge and I’ll possibly be following this post with a post about my experience with this challenge.

For today, the prompt is “Makeup Collection”. As you’ve probably noticed, I don’t always take these prompts literally. I take them as a prompt to write something — which is what I imagine that the point of a writing challenge is about. My makeup collection is spread across Malta and the UK and in the UK, some of my collection is packed away in storage and some is what I use daily. I won’t be showing you all the makeup I own, since in my current situation that’s quite difficult to do but I will be sharing with you a website that I’m using where I’m hoping to store details of all my makeup items (I’m building it slowly, over time).

I recently watched a video by Michelle from Ready Set Glamour and she mentioned this website herself, it’s called snupps. The idea is that you can easily take pictures of your items and organise them in shelves. You can look at and search through your shelves and you can set them to either be private or public. You can also search through other people’s shelves, and you can have a look at my shelves here: I can’t promise to keep building this and keep it up to date, but it seems like an interesting idea. I’m including a screenshot of my lipsticks shelf. I’d love to get round to taking nice photos of swatches of all my lip colours, but for now most of my photos are of me holding the lipstick in my hand.

I like that I can search through my items. I also noticed that I was able to add items from the website using my computer. There are quite a lot of details that you’re able to fill in about the item but it seems like you can fill in as little and as much detail as you’d like and the website is still useful. I haven’t had enough experience with it to determine whether this is something I want to use regularly or not. All I can say so far is that it sounds like an interesting idea.

So if you’d like to keep up to date with my makeup collection, follow me on snupps! 🙂
