House: makeup organisation 

In some kind of attempt to be a more organised person, I’ve made the monumental decision to try and put some order into my ridiculous makeup collection.  The wardrobe room is severely lacking in any kind of functional storage and being the domestic goddess that I am, that needs to be sorted.  Who am I kidding?  It’d just be nice to walk in on a morning and be able to find what I’m looking for, that’s not too much to ask is it? 

So this is the mess I had to begin with, pretty much a pile of crap in the corner.  Not very inspiring when trying to prettify myself in the morning.

First stage was definitely assessing the level of makeup hoarding I’m currently at.

Now if you’re a beauty guru, this is a pretty pitiful collection. But, as a girl who basically uses the same 7 products on a daily basis, this seems a little over top.  Especially when a good 70% of products I’ve never used and I’m not entirely sure what they’re actually for.  Note to self: actually try products that come in the Birchbox every month.

So this is the final for now outcome…

Still tragically lacking in suitable storage but a little bit more organised?  Obviously there’s still a box of random products that I have no idea what part of the body they go on, so they can keep each other company in the same box until I work up the nerve to try them out.  New makeup can be scary, give me a break.

Kind of need to figure out some more practical storage solutions, but nothing I’ve seen  in any shop lives up to to my unrealistic expectations of furniture making me into an organised person.  I can dream can’t I?  Or maybe work on some bigger dreams?

Stay tuned!

Much love!
