I don't tend to wear too much makeup to work, usually just the basics like concealar, bronzer, blush and mascara. I however LOVE to wear makeup when I go out at night! Since I don't wear too much jewelery I feel as though makeup is my best accessory.
Now on to the makeup organization!
I have forever carried my top used (fav.) products in a makeup case that I can throw into my purse for either a night out, sleepover or a rushed morning out the door if I'm late for work! All my other makeup products are concealed in a two drawer plastic case that I picked up a couple years ago at one of my favourite stores called Solutions (basically it's a store specifically for organizing solutions!)
The top compartment stores all my 'face' products (ie. tinted moisturizers, concealers, blush, bronzers, powders, etc.) The bottom compartment stores all my lip & eye makeup! This is my favourite -- as there are so many colors. I have all my MAC quads, lipsticks & glosses oh and all my makeup brushes. (now just thinking about this, I wish I took a pic of the drawers open). I will promise to add this soon!
my fav FACE products:
MAC tinted moisturizer in Medium Dark
Bare Escentuals Faux Tan bronzer (have used this product for YEARS! I love it!!!)
Bobbi Brown Blush in Peony
Marcelle Illuminating Power
MAC Eyebrown Pencil in Lingering
Sephora Eyeliner in Black
Anastasia Highlighting Pencil (I use this on my brow bone & in the corner of my eyes)
MAC Concealer in NW20
Benefit Erase Paste
Smashbox Eyeshadow Trio in Center Stage
my fav LIPSTICKS - they are all MAC
Hue, Speed Dial, Lovelorn, Sweetie
(Sweetie is my ultimate favourite, I've been wearing this one since the end of highschool)
I have way too many MAC eye shadows (and I barely wear any of them). My favourite are: Vex, Shroom, Retrospeck, Ricepaper, Carbon and Plum Dressing. The above is just a small selection of all the colors! Now you can see why the bottom compartment of my makeup storage container is my favourite!
Now on to my nail polish collection. I usually always have color on my nails (again I think of nail polish as an accessory). I keep all my colors in the below basket compartment. I absolutely love Essie nail polish, it's my favourite brand, goes on really well and I feel like they have been producing some great colors recently.
My favourite nail polish colors are:
Essie: Chinchilly, Fifth Avenue, Mint Candy Apple, Sugar Daddy and Sand Tropez
OPI: No Spain No Gain, Lincoln Park After Dark, Russian Navy and Bubble Bath
