Hello sweeties, how was the weekend? I hope you had an awesome one. Admitting the fact that we are nearly to the end of February, this weekend I was totally in a spring clean mode and one particular part that I specifically want to mention here is storage. Well, we all know that spring clean involves lots of decluttering and organisation and hence, this time I made it as an advantage to revamp my makeup storage. Plus, the amount of quality time spent and getting it finished up to look more organised is really a pleasure thing and I’m sure you would be feeling the same just as me. Isn’t it?
More about the elegant prop
While thinking about different themes of organisation, once that really highlighted my thinking was the elegant touch to the organised look and that’s why, this time I opted for an elegant cake holder stand from Jamie Oliver, the famous British Chef as my prop wherein I could able to tuck in and arrange all the makeup items that I desire to show case. Yes girls! These gorgeous multi coloured striped patterns along with the stunning looking stainless steel stand makes it as a quintessential eye catcher to define my timeless beauty staples in an elegant way.
To be honest, when it comes to makeup, I always like to do a mix and match with luxury as well as drugstore products and as you know, I always have a super soft corner for branded products and that’s why I’ve opted for the top row to adorn with some of my stunning looking luxe products like Ted Baker Lip Balm (this miniature perfumed shaped jewelled-glass container contains the coolest cocoa blended luscious lip balm which will melt when this balm is applied onto my lips), Lancome Eye shadow (a creamy, radiantly glowing blue eyeshadow is a must for this Spring), Red Lipstick (this red carpet inspired, flattering lipstick is ideal to wear on your lips for any kind of special occasions or parties) by Kate Moss from Rimmel London and Mascara ( this nourishing, clump free mascara is my all time perfect staple for a voluptuous looking lashes) from Eyeko London.
While the top row was making a galore of luxury brands, here on the bottom row was substituted with a few unmatchable drugstore beauties and some of the key beauty staples includes: Soap&Glory Miniature The Righteous Butter (my skin adores to wear this creamy, soft, butter like moisturiser every day which comes along with an added nourishing factor of shea butter and aloe vera), Maybelline NewYork Dream Matte Mousse (it is great to wear just on its own or could be mixed along with any kind of foundation or BB cream to create a perfect base), MUA Creamy Blusher (this silky soft and creamy blusher is perfect to dab onto my cheeks every time), Rimmel London BB Cream (my HG drugstore BB cream), Maybelline NewYork Master Piece Precise Liquid Eyeliner (this sponge tipped pen is ideal to define and sketch precise lines onto my eyes) and lastly, Barry M Cosmetics Lip Liner (I use it everyday non-stop and it works great along with lip balm and lipstick).
