I stumbled across this storage box in Wilkinsons whilst I was picking up the basics (cotton wool, facewipes, shower gel etc). It caught my eye because of its similarity to the Muji acrylic storage products which I've been meaning to purchase for a while now but haven't had the chance to visit a store. This Wilkinsons box is a more accessible alternative to the Muji products and I love the cute handles on each draw (which the Muji products do not have). The box is big enough to store the majority of my everyday makeup and looks good sitting on my dressing table.
I have organised my daily makeup as follows: Top draw - face, middle draw - eyes and bottom draw - lips.
Top draw FACE PRODUCTS
After completing my skincare routine I'll start off by applying my favourite foundation Bourjois Healthy Mix using a Real Techniques Buffing Brush, this product gives my skin a glowing flawless finish - it is a foundation I always return to. I will then apply Laura Mercier Secret Concealer underneath my eyes and dab it on any spots (such a nice creamy product). Following this I use Soleil Tan De Chanel to contour and bronze my face by using a Real Techniques Stippling Brush. My two current favourite blushers are MAC Melba and Topshop Creme Blush in Neon Rose, I will apply either of these to the apple of my cheeks and finish off my face by using Benefit High Beam for highlight.
Middle draw EYE PRODUCTS
I rarely vary my eye products because I know what suits my eyes and don't tend to experiment. My favourite eyeshadows are all quite similar, I like a bronze shimmery look so I enjoy using either of these products; MAC Mythology, MAC Lie Low, Maybelline 24hr Color Tattoo On and On Bronze or L'oreal Color Infallible 021 Sahara Treasure. I line my eyes (both upper and lower lash line) with Clinique Gel Liner and finish off the eyes with lashings of Revlon Grow Luscious Plumping Mascara. For my eyebrows i'll fill them in using MUA Eyebrow Pencil in Brunette.
Bottom draw LIP PRODUCTS
My current choice of lipbalm is an EOS product (however i'm not keen and am searching for decent balm which calms my chapped lips...any ideas?), I follow this by using a lipstick. My current faves vary between MAC Hue, MAC Please Me, MAC Creme Cup and Kate Moss Matte Lipstick #107. I'm not a fan of glossy lips but Sleek Pout Polish in Sugar May is my chosen product if I decide to add a slight sheen on top of lipstick.
So there's my daily face - sorry about the cheesiness of my smile in the photo above. I would definitely recommend these storage boxes to store your favourite everyday makeup in, but can also be used to store other things such as cotton wool buds, hair grips, hair bands etc, the list is endless.
You can pick up these storage boxes from Wilkinson for £10
