de-clutter



Just wanted to post a few snaps of my organisational skills.. my make-up collection has for too long been jumbled together in a big tub or drawer, so when I bought my new chest I knew it was definitely time for change! I really like the Muji storage compartments, but they aren't cheap, and I have plenty of other boxes I could put to use instead, which is exactly what I did..



I haven't ordered the cake stand for my jewellery yet, I'm still wondering if I should check a few charity shops for a nice one even though I really like the one I posted at the weekend. I also ran out of tealights so a couple of holders are filling in as makeshift ring and bobby pin holders! I probably should have cleaned my brushes before snapping away, ignore the state of them!



Top drawer is for my make-up. Eyeshadow/mascara/eyeliner first, then lipsticks, balms, eyelash glue etc. and lastly my face products, like blush, foundation, powder, concealer and bronzer.

Second drawer is home to my shocking amount of nail colours (considering I only wear about 3 shades), false nails, cotton wool pads and lots and lots of false lashes tucked away in their little boxes! I recently bought those Bioré pore strips, but they are poop, do not recommend at all! I think the next stop for me is a salon to have a good deep cleansing facial to get rid of my blackheads, I don't remember having the problem before my rhinoplasty, can't win 'em all!

You can basically see all my 'what's in my make-up bag' products, but I may do separate posts on every day/favourite products, if people want to see? A few people have asked me to do a daily product kind of post, so I probably should do one! Thoughts?

  19. well done! I literally did this a week ago and it took me about 4 hours but I love how it's so organized now. :) I have 3 separate bags, for eyes, lips and face (haha, ELF) and I bundle up eyeliners and mascaras with elastic bands. :) I also have a special bag for travel makeup.
    A daily skincare/makeup routine would be cool. :)

  20. This is really inspiring me to have a clean up, uh I find it so hard to stay organised. I already have like 5 cake stands in my house, it has to be the one time I am actually ready prepared :) x

  24. Yeah do more posts like this on your make up :) I love organisation! haha :) xxx

    ReplyDelete
  25. can you do a post showing how you organize your clothes and shoes?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Thanks A LOT for this post. I bought a vanity like a year ago and i atill can't figure what's that best way to organize it so every time i read one this posts i get a little more inspired for my own.
    Recomendation? You should paint the top of the caps of your nail polishes with the colour that's inside. That way you don't have to take it away to see the colour.

  27. I'm incredibly envious of your make-up collection! I would love to see a post of all of the products you use!

    ReplyDelete
  28. What lashes do you use?

  29. Very nice. I only throw everything into three different drawers and it's quite annoying to go through everything in order to find what you're looking for.

    ReplyDelete
  30. yep that's a lot of nail varnishes! Great organisation now and all without having to buy expensive new storage. I would like a post on fake lashes, as I am scared of trying them!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Wow. You have A LOT of nail varnish. My collection seems somewhat inadequate now x

    ReplyDelete
  32. This is what my dreams look like.

  45. I would love to see you do more make-up/ beauty orientated posts as I really like your 'look' particularly your eyeliner application (I'm still trying to perfect mine!). Although with that amount of make-up it might take you awhile to go through them all! xxx

    ReplyDelete
  46. I love the use of the Starbucks mug. :) I re-organised my make-up last year and found it a pain and I have WAY less than you.

    I'd like it if you did a daily make-up post. I looked through your blog archives hoping to find once but didn't. :( x
