I had a mosey on eBay & Amazon at different make-up storage they had. & although quite boring & predictable I came across some really good value for money vanity cases. However, these vanity cases open up with different compartments, allowing me to organise my make-up stash a little more. In the end I bought the pink vanity case pictured below for only £14.99. You can find it here.
So here are some photos...
As you can see the 4 compartments fold out, revelling a larger space at the bottom. I love having the different compartments, as I can unleash my make-up OCD!! Here are some photos & a brief explanation of what I keep in each part.
Numero uno - eyeshadows! Including the brands Barry M, Bourjois, 17, Rimmel, Nivea, Avon & Opia.
Thenn, underneath are my lipglosses. Including the brands Soap & Glory, Urban Decay, Rimmel, Inika, Sleek, Bobby Pin, Avon & Ruby & Millie.
On the other side we have eyeliners & mascaras. There are too many brands to name but my current faves are the Collection gel eyeliner & Yves Rocher mascara!
& the last foldy-out-bit contains lipsticks, lip liners & a couple lip balms. The majority of my lip sticks are Rimmel & Urban Decay!
At the very bottom, in the largest compartment, are bigger items that didn't fit anywhere, various eyelashes, eyelash curlers & a few face products.
I wouldn't necessarily use many of the above products for everyday wear. & when I'm in a rush (or just early mornings in general) I canny be fussed to rummage through the box. Soo, I have myself a lazy little everyday box! I just keep my everyday make-up items in a little Anna Lou of London box in my bedside table.
In here is the newly raved about Wake Me Up foundation by Rimmel, Benefit's concealer Boi-ing, loose powder by No7, the porefessional primer by Benefit, Benefit's bronzer/blusher sugarbomb, Maybelline's falsies mascara & a brown Rimmel kohl eyeliner! When I'm feeling extra, extra lazy I'll just chuck on (not literally) some Maybelline matte mouse & I'm out the house!
I didn't really know where to draw the line with regards to what I'm showing you; for instance make-up, toiletries, skin care, nails etc. But I figured nail polishes are classed as make-up, so I'll briefly show you those too! At the moment I just keep my nail gear in an ever so pretty Marc Jacobs box.
In here I keep all my nail polishes, base coats & top coats; most of which are Rimmel, Barry M & Topshop. I also keep different nail polish removers, tools such as files, buffers, clippers, cuticle pushers & removers etc, masking tape, cotton wool pads, cuticle oil, nail art & nail foils etc. I plan on expanding my nail collection massively, cause I love doing my nails! To buy list: more Topshop polishes & my first OPI & China Glaze polishes!
So, that's it! As you can see my collection isn't amazing, but I like it :) I hope you enjoyed reading my post, I enjoyed writing it!
Hope you all had a great weekend!
