What's In My Everyday Makeup Storage?

Saturday, 31 October 2015

Up until I started uni, I always kept all my makeup in my Alex drawers and took things out as I needed them. But now that I have limited time to get ready in the morning, I wanted to get a smaller makeup organiser that I could put my essentials in and keep on my desk. I was in Boots recently and found this little organiser, which is just perfect for holding the basics I need on a daily basis. Today I'm going to show you the products I reach for daily, although I tend to change around the products in here regularly as I always have so many products to test out!

In the first section on the left, I keep my Urban Decay Naked Skin Loose Powder, as it's quite bulky so it pretty much needs a section to itself! It's my holy grail powder and I have a full review of it here. Beside it I have my favourite perfume which is One Direction's Our Moment, and a Bath and Body Works Hand Sanitiser.

On the right side at the front, I keep my blushes, brow products and two lipsticks. I have my holy grail brow kit, which is the Kiko Brow Expert Styling Kit. It's the only brow powder I've ever used - I'm a creature of habit when it comes to my brows so I rarely change up my routine. I also have my Benefit Gimme Brow. I'm testing out two blushes from Catrice so I keep both of those there so I can rotate between them. I have two of my favourite lipsticks here too - Tom Ford's Spanish Pink, and Charlotte Tilbury's Very Victoria. While I don't wear either of these everyday, I just love the packaging so I like to keep them on the desk!

At the back on the left, I keep all of my base products. I have one of my favourite primers, which is Benefit's Porefessional. My two foundations of choice at the moment are Rimmel's Lasting Finish Nude foundation, and the new L'Oreal True Match. I'm currently testing out the True Match to see how it compares to the original formula. In terms of concealers, I have two of my current favourites - Urban Decay's Naked Skin concealer, and Physician's Formula's Twin Concealer. For contouring, I have my NYX Wonderstick and Too Faced's Milk Chocolate Soleil Bronzer.

In the final section at the back, I keep my mascaras and my Urban Decay Naked Basics 2 palette, which I've been using all the time recently. I also keep my Beauty Blender and two Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponges.

In the little drawer I keep my Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden, a Christmas Baby Lips in Sugar Cookie, my favourite colour tattoo from Maybelline in Creamy Beige, my Sephora eye pencil in Chocolate and a tweezers. A bit of a random mix, but I just wanted to fill up the drawer! 

So they are the products I keep on my desk on a daily basis. As I said, I tend to mix things around just to make sure all my makeup gets used but these are the items I've been loving recently.

What are your favourite products to keep on your vanity?
