I recently realised that I did not use even half of my make up as I stashed it away in cases, draws and different rooms. So today, I’m sharing how I re-vamped my organisation of everyday makeup.
|This is my current bathroom set up 🙂|
I started by shopping my stash and going through everything! I through out what was old and gave away what I no longer wanted. I also created a new system that allows me to get the most use out of my make up – Also I have included my fave products from each section 🙂
I’m doing this make up collection/organisation in two instalments. This post focuses on lip products, eyeliners/mascaras and face products. Part 2, will include foundations, eyeshaows and brushes.
On the far right, I keep my lip glosses and current mascaras/eye pencils. I must admit I’m not the biggest fan of lip-gloss and I have recently chucked out a few, but I still have some favourites 😛 – NYX Buttergloss in Natural and Rimmel Apocolips in Nova. These two are gorgeous shades of pink, that aren’t too bright and are perfect for everyday or with a smokey eye. I also have a collection of random eyeliners and mascaras but my all time fave mascara is hands down Maybelline the Falsies. I tried this mascara after having seen Tanya Burr talking about how much she loves it, and I totally agree – it provides great volume, length and really opens up the eyes to make them appear bigger. The eyeliner I have chosen is Revlon Colourstay pencil, I really like this eyeliner especially on lazy make up days, its super soft and easy to use!
The glass jar I store my lipglosses in is from The Reject Shop ($6) and the jar I store my eyeliners was just an old jam jar.
|My favourite face staples are definitely La Roche Posay: Effaclar Face Wash, Clinique Anti-Blemish Mask and Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisturiser in Sensitive. These are part of my everyday lifestyle and are perfect for my oiler blemish prone skin!|
|My two favourite and absolute staple lipsticks: Revlon Lip Butter in Berry Smoothie and YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in 8. They both have a nice shine and are super moisturising!|
|Some other random faves from this section are: Australis Crème Colour for Cheeks and Lips in Flirtatious Pink, NYX Matte Finishing Spray, Australis Powder Eyeliner in Smoke and Tea Tree Oil. I got this Australis pot in a massive haul from Ozsale (I did a post on it here: http://beautybalmer.blogspot.com.au/2013/11/australis-haul.html) it is a beautiful peachy nude colour and a great multi purpose product, however, it is slightly drying on the lips. The NYX spray is my life line I literally wear it everyday because it makes my make up appear less powdery and more natural. The Australis eyeliner is so nice! I love it 🙂 and did a review on it here: http://beautybalmer.blogspot.com.au/2014/08/review-australis-powder-liner.html. Lastly, the tea tree oil is good for my skin as it controls the natural oils.
That’s all for Part One of my Make Up organisation/collection. Please check back soon for Part Two 🙂 If there is anything that you’ve tried that I have included please leave a comment with your thoughts on the product! Also how do you store your make up?
