My daily beauty routine always starts with skincare. It's taken me a really long time to find the perfect combination of products for my skin, but my Clinique liquid facial soap and Clarisonic are a match made in heaven. Since I picked up my Clarisonic at the start of the year, I've noticed far fewer breakouts and my overall complexion has really benefited. As these are products which I use every day, I keep them out on my dressing table so I can grab them easily as I blearily-eyed make my way to the bathroom of a morning!
Next stop, perfume. I've got a few fragrances which I like to alternate between, namely Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle and Givenchy's Eau De Moiselle, and again these are stashed on my dressing table so I can grab them easily when I need to. Sitting alongside these everyday scents, I've also got a bottle of Chanel No.5, which was a present for my 21st birthday- as you can see I use it very sparingly!
My make-up storage is a touch more complicated but sill works really well for me. I picked up this jumbo-sized vanity case from Cath Kidston during their sale last year, and it's perfect for keeping the bulk of my collection in. Usually stashed in one of my dressing table drawers, the grab handle makes it really portable, and it offers a great amount of storage. The separate compartments make it really easy to keep all of my products organised (lipsticks in one section, eyeliners in another, and so on), so my inner neat freak is content! I tend to keep the products which I use more regularly (such as my Nars blusher and Chanel eyeshadows) in the central compartment, and this case is perfect as I can see everything easily- meaning that nothing is neglected! For the products which I carry with me in my handbag or staples I use on a daily basis, I've got a smaller make-up bag (again by Cath Kidston!), which comes with a handy matching mirror. In here, you'll find my Lancome mascara (the sole reason I've never resorted to false eyelashes!), Benefit highlighter and Vichy concealer, along with some brushes and spare contact lenses- everyday essentials which I'd be lost without!
That concludes the guided tour of my beauty storage! I hope you enjoyed it!
How do you store your make-up? And have you come up with any innovate storage solutions?
