SWITCHING UP THE STASH
As my makeup collection continues to grow, I find it hard to rotate everything evenly so I don't forget about things. My stash can no longer be contained in a pretty makeup bag and is now sprawled throughout my room most days. However, I have come up with a little plan for myself: every Sunday I take the time to chose my face for the next week, and organise everything nicely in my little narrow Muji drawers. I find this so handy and the neat freak inside me likes it a heck of a lot.
As you can see, I put all face and cheek products in one section and eyes and lips in the bottom. If you're forever using way too many products for a look, this is a great way to cut down on the amount. This week I have chosen to use some of my newer purchases and a few old favourites. The contents is as follows: Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation in Vanilla, Barbara Daly Illuminator in Soft Focus, Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer in Ivory, Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in Fair, Dainty Doll Paper Roses Cream Blush and lastly for the top half, the Kardashian Beauty Cabana Bronzer.
For eyes and lips in the below pull-out the products are: Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in Super Natural, Dainty Doll Lipstick in Baby Love, Max Factor Clump Defy Waterproof Mascara, Avon Eye Primer, Anastasia Lavish Palette, Urban Decay Naked Basics, and a Maybelline Black Gel Liner.
I'm hoping that as a combined team, these products will help me achieve a classic, fresh pink look for the following days. I've also included a nude lip, which is so not normal for me! They'll be a post on the combo shortly.
If you enjoyed this edit, it can certainly be made a little series and be done every week. How does that sound?
