Make Up I'm Using Right Now

I used to have a make up bag of products which I switched up every week but over Christmas I got back into lugging out all my make up in the morning (it's in one big drawer). I'm on the hunt for new storage since I've downsized my collection considerably so I want to get back into having a weekly make up bag. By the way, if anyone has any suggestions regarding where I can pick up a small set of drawers for storage, leave them in the comments!

Did I say I'm going to have a make up bag? I meant a tin. A Burt's Bees tin, to be precise. Not that that matters at all! Here's what's inside...

MUFE HD Primer - I'm just trying to use this up. It's okay but it's nothing special.
Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer in Medium 3 - I like this because it's so quick and easy to use!
NARS Sheer Glow in Santa Fe - This is my current favourite foundation. It's easy to apply and leaves a nice finish.

MAC MSF Natural in Medium Plus - I got this recently since my Medium Dark was too dark. I love using these as setting powders or on their own on lazy days.
TheBalm Mary Lou-Manizer - I've been enjoying this highlighting powder so much recently. It's always the first one I reach for.
NARS Gina Blush - I picked this up in a blog sale last week and I've not had a chance to try it out yet so I'm going to spend all week wearing it!

BeneFit They're Real Mascara - This little guy is on his last legs so I imagine I'll only get another week or two from this tube. Best mascara I've ever used, though.
Cosmetics A La Carte Brow Ink - I got this in a Carmine box and it's been a revelation!
Milani Liquif'Eye Liners in Black and Brown - I think I have two back ups of the I feel the need to use them up.
Too Faced Shadow Insurance - Does this product require an explanation? 

Too Faced Romantic Eye Palette
I've had this for a while but I've barely used it. My favourite shades are the ones on the bottom row. Green eyeshadow, anyone?

Elemis Fresh Skin Loving Lips Lip Balm - I've lost my 8 Hour Cream so this is my go to lip balm. It's light but moisturising at the same time.
Clinique Superbalm in Rootbeer - I'll be working on using this up this week. I like it but I've got so many glosses...
MAC Mattene in Delectable - When I got this I wore it a lot but I've not touched it since so I thought it was time to rediscover it.
Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfector in 02 Apricot Shimmer - This smells amazing! It's one of my favourite glosses right now.

Do you do something similar to this? Or do you give yourself plenty of choice every day?

  1. I use these- but with roses on to store all my makeup and they are a great size to be able to fit everything inside neatly! I keep my main collection but I have a small Csth Kidston makeup bag to carry stuff to school with me- (I did a post the other day that has everything I carry round with me in it) but at the weekends I put the stuff from my makeup bag into my drawers again- so on Monday morning I normally pick some slightly different things (I end up only changing my mascara though) xxxxx

  2. I just found the drawers which I use-

  3. Asda have a good selection of small plastic drawers or Argos :)

    I think it's a great idea to rotate products as you get to rediscover old favourites. x

    1. Thanks for pointing out the comment issue! :P I want wooden ones I think. I'm currently using ugly plastic ones (they're huge - I store lots of other things in them too) so I'd like some dainty wooden/wicker ones...the search continues!xx
