PICTURE HEAVY POST.
A couple of days ago on Twitter, I asked if makeup storage posts were too common, or whether people found them interesting. I only received one reply, however, the person who replied urged me to go for it – so here we are.
That person was the lovely Aseya from Pretty In The Desert 🙂
So here goes….
I find that a lot of the makeup I use regularly is either in my makeup bag or rattling around the bottom of my handbag, & that in fact, the stuff that is actually stored away is either the stuff I haven’t got round to using yet, or stuff I forgot existed. Bad, I know. Luckily, whilst preparing this post, I found some brilliant products which I’d forgotten all about and will be using them frequently in the coming weeks.
I’m a sucker for a pretty box. Others store their makeup in all manners of ways – pen pots, storing their brushes in jam jars – but give me something in a pretty box, & I’m hooked.
|This is another gorgeous box which holds some of my makeup. This was from a FCUK bath set that my then-manager gave to me for my 21st. Again, the bath products went to their rightful place & I used the box once again for storage.|
Some of you may be expecting fancy ways of storing my makeup, but this is my own special way, and I haven’t got tonnes of room to store it in a fancy way. Pretty boxes do the job just as well, don’t you think?
|This is possibly my favourite box. Although I am not a floral fan, this just seems SO pretty, I had to use it.|
You may remember at the top of the post I mentioned I had found some products again & would be using them in the upcoming weeks. Would you like to see reviews of any of the products below? Let me know.
|Champneys collection lipgloss & Vitamiracle rejuvenating hand and nail cream – A present to myself at Christmas from the Sainsburys 3 for 2 offer|
|Missguided splash & polish – I think this came free with a magazine :/|
|Marks & Spencers ‘Perfection’ hand cream and eyeshadow and lipgloss palette. Part of my 21st present haul.|
|Found on the clearance shelf at Boots – Rimmel & my favourite lipstick, as mentioned before. Can you remember the name from a previous post?|
|Another Boots bargain, Botanics Aromatherapy gel.|
|Again, a Boots bargain – Maybelline Pure Foundation|
|I bought this from my friends Neals Yard Remedies party in preparation for the summer & then forgot about it. Typical me.|
|Boots No7 lipgloss and shadow palette. How gorgeous is the packaging?|
|Boots No7 Gentle Foaming Cleanser… is this as good as Liz Earle?|
|Not exactly makeup, & I DO use this. Lavender sleep pillow mist, part of a present from a friend.|
|Another Neals Yard Remedies product – Power Berry Daily Moisture.|
Would you like to see reviews of any of the above products?
& what did you think of my makeup storage?
I love to read all comments, so please let me know what you think
