monday musings [makeup organization]

Monday, October 22, 2012
i used to keep my makeup in a drawer. in a [cute] little makeup bag [by LAMB]. where i couldn't see it and had to dump it out every time i wanted to use it. it got messy. so i decided to change all that. i scoured the stores and finally stumbled upon this little tray [pictured] as part of a set at a marshall's/homegoods store [jackpot!] and scooped it right up. as you can see, it happens to fit all of my daily makeup and a couple of cute candles.

what's all that stuff, you ask? [apart from the jack daniel's whiskey glass i stole borrowed from hubby to hold my brushes/eyeliner/etc?] here's the breakdown of what i use on a daily basis:

  1. makeup forever hd microperfecting primer
  2. ysl le teint touche eclat illuminating foundation
  3. givenchy magic khol liner in black
  4. l'oreal false fiber lashes mascara [switched to after reading this post from nat the fat rat's great mascara experiment. she's totally right, it's awesome.]
  5. sephora smoothing & brightening concealer
  6. bare minerals eye-shadows in celestine, bare skin, and renew
  7. bare minerals tinted mineral veil
  8. nars illumenator in orgasm
  9. brushes: bare minerals full flawless face brush, essence of beauty eye-shadow brush & eyeliner brush from this face kit
i also have clinique all about eyes rich eye cream and de-puffing eye massage roller [to reduce puff] on there as well as my favorite fresh sugar perfume [from this post here] and josie maran's argan oil [to keep it visible so i actually use it, because it's great]. 

now that everything's nice and organized, i can follow my [super minimal] makeup routine in the morning without constantly cursing that i lost my eye liner [because that used to happen all. the. time.]

are you organized or messy? [or messily organized. like me.]
