ZE STORAGE BOX YOU NEED (one minute read #2)

Mini post on something that will help you store your Makeup Palettes (or documents but yeah makeup), these are an alternative to the Muji drawers/boxe that I adore but are too small to store eye/face etc palettes. Cheap big drawer so easy to pile on and neutral colour I have three (I know I am sad, I like to put things in boxes). Wilko single drawer £5 BARGAIN !



any tips for easy storage?

thanks x

Current FACE


My current base, yes I say it like this as when it comes to base I like to use up the products before switching to other products so that I don’t feel like wasting too much money, and I love the satisfactory feeling whenever I finish a product, blablabla anyways :

4 products, 1 which already made it to my favourite, one which should make it soon, and two yes/no/I don’t know:

ZE TOOL YOU NEED ( one minute read )

    I just wanted to share with you a lil tool that I have been using  everyday for the last at least 5/6 years, this is a lash comb/curler-ish.
It is from Sephora France http://www.sephora.fr ( I have not found it on the US website), it is cheap and super efficient.

Volumateur-de-cils








I used it once I have applied my mascara to separate lashes and "destroy" the clumpy mascara bit remaining it does add a bit of a curl too as it is bended, it allows you to lengthen your lashes.
You can use the other side as a lid protector or to put under your eye when yu apply powdery shadows, it is EUR 3.95 it might seemed silly put YEAH I love it and would recommend it so much.

what is your fav easy/cheap/looking insignificant makeup/beauty bit you could not live without ?

thks x

Liquid HIGHLIGHTER Highstreet Vs High-End

       Hi there, just thought that has everybody is into "strobing" (you don't what it is, well I can't really help ah : it is kind of an alternative to contouring using intense highlighting instead of real shading : cosmopolitan.com they have a better definition and real tips) it was appropriate to do a post on summer highlighter.

                  I wanted to show you two alternatives one on the affordable side and another more on the treat side but nothing too expensive.

A CONTOUR A DAY !


So I have a few contour palettes from super affordable to pretty luxury, so I thought I should try one a day for a week to be able to compare them.
Disclaimer : by contour here I mean really natural everyday, nothing like a MUA would do, I can't do magic :) .


  Here is this Week MENU ...

Big empties #1 and focus on the +++ products .

So I have been keeping my empties ( or rubbish tbh) so that I can :
1) feel less guilty when buying products because I do use a few so I will need more (someone needs an intervention),
2) so that I can show it to you

I am just going to show you all these and then give more details on the products that I have really enjoyed.

Let me introduce you to .... my mess !

 So as a first post I just wanted to show my setting (well not a professional blogger so it is my bedroom) just so that you get an idea of how silly I am with makeup.

This is where I do my makeup in the morning (aka the window ledge = fancy-ish) :

I tend to store my skincare on a little side table, and store bulky body products etc in a set of drawers (these pics are a bit boring but just thought it would help understand how I store my lovely mess).


Then the funky stuff, the makeup bits are in storage boxes from Muji, Habitat (let me know if there is better cheaper anywhere else I am a box addict) and in customized empty Birchbox , and I keep my backups and samples in the black drawers (which are from a random second hand furniture shop that I ''painted  in black'' if this reminds you of a song please leave a comment below lol.
Ok so now you can understand the extent of my addiction and get the reason why I was like : 'you need to start a blog', and at least make something a lil bit productive with all your magnifique mess.
