|The Blusher drawer|
As you can see I have my Muji acrylic organiser at the back so I can pull out each of the 5 drawers easily. At the front of the drawer I keep the overspill-things that are too tall to fit into the drawers mainly. But the drawers are full lol! Am considering buying another set of 5 drawers now Muji has just opened in Dubai.
I am an absolute sucker for a pretty compact-my problem is I need to remember to actually use them and not just stare at them lovingly. I still haven't used my Mac Archie's Girls face powder yet because I love the hearts!
Ok so here is what's in the overspill....
Most of these things are still brand new and haven't been used yet. I have a couple of Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks stacked at the back. A Benefit Hoola bronzer and a Smashbox bronzer. Some Guerlain Meterorites face powders I have picked up in Duty Free-they're all travel sizes apart from the Guerlain Perles Du Dragon in the bottom right. There are a couple of blushers I picked up in Bangkok, an Estee Lauder/Michael Kors blusher I have been using a lot and my Archie's Girls face powder.
|Muji 5 drawer acrylic box|
Here are the acrylic drawers removed. I love the acrylic because you can see where everything is. But they're a nightmare to keep clean! Especially with foundation fingers!!
In the top drawer I have a few random blushes from different brands. Part of the fun of organising this make-up was figuring out how to fit everything in like a jigsaw! In here are 2 Laura Mercier blushes, an Art Deco compact, an Estee Lauder blush, a Benefit, a Givenchy, a Tarte amazonian clay blush and 2 blushes I picked up in Bangkok from Bisous and Skin Food.
Drawer 2 has mainly Illamasqua powder blushes in but also my Daniel Sandler watercolour blushes. I love that Illamasqua blushes smell like sweeties! They last forever as well, I have been using Naked Rose for a year and not even hit pan yet.
Drawer 3 houses my Mac blushes (all powder), Benefit Coralista and 2 Nars blushes (Orgasm and Deep Throat)
Drawer 4 houses cream blushers. In here I have 2 Illamsaqua cream blushes, 4 Mac 'casual colour' from last years collection, 2 Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge (so good!!), a mini Stila convertible colour and my 2 new Aerin multipurpose creams. I like to apply all of these with either my fingers or a Real Techniques Stippling Brush.
The fifth and last drawer houses more cream products! 3 of the Stila convertible colour (I highly recommend these), 5 of the Nars The Multiple (something else I highly recommend), a mini gel blush from Tarte, 2 Make Up For Ever cream blushes and 2 Make Up For Ever Aqua Creams-I'm not sure about these Aqua Creams-they are very shimmery and need to be used quite sparingly.
This is one of my favourite drawers! Happy to post swatches of anything you're interested in-just leave me a comment below!
