Vivianna Does Makeup Says We Should Debunk Our Beauty Bags. So How Big Is Yours?

You may have seen blogger Vivianna Does Makeup (www.viviannadoesmakeup.com) wrote a post yesterday about slimming down her makeup collection. Grazia Daily dropped her a line today to find out why she keeps hers small.

'When I first began beauty blogging, I dreamed of owning a makeup collection that perhaps needed it's own room in my house!' she told us. 'But over the years I've realised it's much more efficient, and not to mention easier on the wallet, to keep a stash of essentials that work well with my skin tone and type and products that I can always rely on.'

This got Grazia HQ thinking about the size of ours - because they're pretty big! One of our interns has admitted to owning more than SEVEN foundations. We took to Twitter to ask you guys how big yours are and it seems we aren't the only hoarders in town...

How Big Is Your Makeup Collection?

We asked our Twitter followers how big their makeup collection is. Here's what they've been saying:
