I have recently rearranged the products which I keep in my acrylic storage boxes (from Wilkinsons) as I was getting bored of the makeup I was using and I thought it was a good excuse to have a rummage in my collection and use products I haven't used in a while. I'm still loving keeping the majority of my daily face in these boxes, they look lovely on my dressing table. So below is the lowdown of the products I keep in these draws and use on a daily basis;
Mac Fix+ - Ah-mazing! I hate when my makeup makes my face look cakey, a spritz of this solves that problem.
Soleil Tan Du Chanel - Now the weather is picking up I've reverted back to using this bronzer (rather than Nars Laguna) I find I like the look of this product once i've fake tanned, I don't use it for contour but on the cheeks, nose and tops of my forehead.
Mac Vanilla Pigment - I haven't used this much as i'm still figuring out the best way to use it. I didn't want to put it in a draw or somewhere it would get thrown around as i'm worried about the product going everywhere.
Clarins Lotus Oil - I have no idea why this is even on my makeup storage box....hmmmmn.
FIRST DRAW (Laura Mercier greatness)
These three items when used together give such a flawless finish. They cover blemishes and scarring like no other face products i've used before. My makeup base lasts all day so all three are my new loves - reviews to follow.
Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation in Rose Ivory
Laura Mercier Mineral Powder in Real Sand
Laura Mercier Secret Concealor 2
This is where I keep nearly all of my MAC lipsticks. I love that I can still see the labels on the bottom of each lipstick through the clear draw, makes it so much easier when choosing. I also keep a couple of other most used lippies at the back including Revlon lip butter in Strawberry Shortcake, Laura Mercier Lipstick Pink Blush and Kate Moss 101 and 107.
Mac Harmony - I love this product for contouring, I don't use it every day but I prefer it to any other contouring product I have at the moment.
Mac Melba - This blusher compliments my skin when I apply it over the top of Soleil Tan Du Chanel, lovely for summer.
Mac Paintpot Soft Ochre - I use this as my eyeshadow primer/base daily, it doesn't let me down.
Sleek Pout Polish Sugar May - I have a few of these lying around, great for a slick of gloss over the top of lipstick.
Nars The Happening Palette - I use the eyeshadows every day! Particularly 'Gstaad' (a taupe brown shade which is limited to the palette).
