New Makeup Storage!

Sunday, 10 January 2016

I recently had a bit of a reshuffle in my room, and after moving some of my makeup to my desk area I thought it would be a good idea to purchase some little draws to pop my most used makeup in so I don't have to root through my draws everyday. Following a quick Amazon search, I found the 3 draw acrylic holder that you can see below (it cost about £9), and now that it has arrived I really want to share the makeup that I have put inside with you all...


In the top drawer I have placed the main skin/base products that I use on a daily basis;

Loreal Infallible Foundation-in the shade vanilla (I do like this foundation, but am still not completely set on its matte qualities after using a more dewy foundation before)

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer-in the shade fair (many of you will know how much I love this, and most probably own it yourselves too)

Benefit Hello Flawless Foundation-(this came out of my 'How to Look the Best at Everything' set, and I have put it in my drawers to inspire me to use it more)

Benefit Porefessional Primer-(I am seriously loving this right now and will probably do a more detailed review in a week or so on it)

Benefit Boing Concealer- (this is normally in here as well, but I think I may well have put it back in one of my main makeup drawers by mistake)
In the second drawer I have my other base products, like contouring stuff etc;

Soap&Glory Powder-(I have literally only just started using this, so am yet to form a concrete opinion on it, but I will be sharing my thoughts pretty soon)

Benefit High Beam-(I promise this is not a Benefit ad, but I just love this highlighter as its pearlescent glow can brighten up my face when worn with any makeup look)

Clinique Contour Stick-(again, this is pretty new but I am loving it so much due to its creamy texture and easy to blend-ness)


Then in the third draw I have my eye and brow products;

Smashbox Eye Primer-(sadly, this is very close to the end of it life as I have loved using it on a daily basis)

Naked Basics 2-(I love love love this palette, and adore all the shades in it as they are so wearable and easy to pair together for any occasion)

Soap&Glory Supercat Liner-(the best liner ever, in my personal opinion obviously...)

Benefit They're Real Mascara and Primer-(again, I love both of these. The primer lengthens my lashes and the mascara on top just makes them stand out in such a full way)

NYX Brow Pomade-in the shade Brunette (after using this I really want to invest in some of the other NYX brow products, like the gel)

Soap&Glory Archery-in the shade Brownie Points (I have raved about this product so many times, so to save getting on everyone's nerves I won't go on about it again this time!)


Also whilst I'm still on the subject of new makeup storage, I can't help mentioning this cute little brush holder from Lakeland (However I just found the exact same one one Amazon). It literally cost me like £2/£3 and fits so many brushes in, as well as looking super beautiful whilst just sitting on my desk.

P.S. The brushes inside the pot are from Real Techniques, Nanshy and Ted Baker and Bourjois.

Well I hoped you enjoyed having a little nosey inside my desk-top, makeup storage...

Thank you for Reading,

    1. Ohh keeping Bobby pins and stuff in one would be so useful for me as I seem to lose all bits and bobs like that!

  7. I always fear that these acrylic drawers will get dirty too quickly, because I blend a lot of my makeup with my fingers.

  14. I just got similar drawers to you and I love them! Although I think I'll need to buy like 4 more to fit all my make-up in! I hate having them in makeup bags cos the eyeshadow palettes tend to explode and go everywhere! These are really nice though! To be honest, I'm more jealous of your makeup than the storage!!
