Recently I had an email asking me how I stored my make-up so thought I’d share with you all my make up bag!
I say make up bag but it’s actually a vanity case which I bought from eBay for £30. It’s not fantastic quality but it does the job. I’ll probably buy another in 2 or 3 years from beauty express. You can buy them from there for about £35 and I know they will be of a high quality.
The vanity case is split into 6 sections with a main storage part at the bottom.
I fill each section with a different product. My first section is for make-up brushes, sponges, eyelash curlers etc. I like to store my make-up brushes in brush guards. You can buy these from eBay for about £4 for a pack of 8. They come in a range of sizes; I bought the small ones for my eye shadow brushes and am currently waiting for the larger ones for my foundation, stippling and kabuki brushes. They protect your brushes from dirt, grime and dust etc so they are really worth the investment. I like to clean my brushes with equal parts of extra virgin olive oil and anti-bacterial washing up liquid. Make sure its anti-bacterial otherwise you won’t get rid of the germs embedded in your brushes which if left un-cleaned can lead breakouts.
My next section is for my everyday essentials so my foundation (I use two types and mix them the MAC pro-wear formulation and Lancôme’s teint idole), my high impact curling mascara, my MAC blusher, a No7 blusher, No 17 translucent powder and my MAC penultimate eyebrow marker.
The next section is for my eye shadows including my palettes. I’ll be doing a review of the beauty UK palette you can see in there. They’re amazing eye shadows for the price they cost.
I also have a section for more pigmented eye shadows so my Barry M dazzle dusts for example...
The next section is filled with my lip balms, lip glosses, lipsticks etc. I’ll be doing a lip balm haul in the next few weeks so make sure you look out for that!
My last section is for storing eye pencils, liquid eyeliners etc.
Finally the bottom of my case is filled with bigger items such as my Manly eye shadow palette and spare/replacement products such as foundations etc...
Anyway I hope you’ve enjoyed having a nosey through my make up kit. Let me know if you like this kind of post or would like to see more.
Again, if you have any more suggestions for the type of posts you’d like just drop me and email or comment below!
