Hello my dears!!
This is a very unique post for me. I wanted to do something different to "celebrate" my 100 subscribers before I am ready for the giveaway in a couple of weeks. So I thought you might be interested to see how I store my make-up and how I organize my "vanity". This is not a "collection" post mainly because I find those pointless and, also, because I am not a collector hence I don't have a collection. I have been accumulating make-up products for years much like any other girl who likes make-up has. Anyhow....let's get right into it...!
Now, this is how I "store" my brushes...
Next to my brushes I also have some evian facial spray, a spray bottle with brush cleanser, a second spray bottle with rubbign alcohol and nailpolish remover.
Tip: If you're going to put your brushes in a beads or pebbles make sure their ends are rounded so that your brushes won't get scratched or damaged.
These are the two sets of drawers that are on my "vanity". I use inverted commas when I say vanity because I have been using my desk as a vanity ever since I stopped using it for studying.
info: The one on the left is from "Jumbo" and the one on the right is from "IKEA".
Tip: I clean my drawers with dettol diluted in warm water. The fact that they are plastic makes it very easy for me to clean.
The inside of the drawers of the left set :)
On the top I keep some sample jars with pigments and glitters as well as my eye and lip pencils.
In the first drawer I keep eye-liners, mascaras, primers and concealers.
In the second drawer I keep my blushes and highlighters.
In the third and fourth drawer I keep eyeshadows.
In the fifth drawer I keep my lipglosses.
And in the sixth one I keep my lipsticks.
Now, in the set of drawers on the right hand side I keep my face products(powders, foundations, bronzers etc), my nailpolishes and some misc products(lashes, glitters etc). Also, on top of this set I keep my MAC and Chanel nailpolishes as well as some of my jewellery.
Tip/Info: I used to be ashamed of this drawer but let me tell you this:every girl has a misc drawer that is messier than their other drawers...!
Finally, on my vanity, I also keep my MAC 15 eye-shadow palette, a moisturizer, a sunblock, a tub of hand-cream,some tissues, cotton buds and cotton pads,a towel and some baby wipes.
Tip: You can get really cheap flannels or small face towels that you could use for a number of things. I have a couple of those flannels. One of them is to wipe my hands with, one is to lay my brushes on to dry and a third one I use when I give myself manicures.I mostly put them in the wash after they've become dirty however I tend to throw them away after 6 months.
More tips will be coming your way soon!
