Beauty Adventure? Spring Cleaning! Well in the Caribbean we just have two seasons, a wet and dry. No spring season really but the term is still used and I had to use it this week. There were makeup and nail polish stashes all over the house! The men folk in my life were not impressed. On top of that I am a hoarder, not just of makeup but of packages. I hate throwing away the original boxes but they just had to go since these simple things were taking up way too much space.
So step one was to gathering all the things from all the nooks and crannies they were put in. I recruited my two nieces and made them pretend we were on a treasure hunt for golden makeup treasure!
Next I organised the one big stash into smaller piles according to type. So one stash for lipsticks, one for eyeliners, one for face products and so on.
Discard old, expired items and good, unwanted colours I happily gave to my nieces to play dress up. Their mother was not amused but I was trying to play my part as the loving, generous aunt! Just doing my job right?
Get myself some organisers. I got a 24 lipstick organiser and 3 tier almost clear drawer from Amazon. Some simple holders for longer items, worst case use some vases or tall glasses. I still left the boxes for the MAC lipsticks since they can’t be store upside down and I wanted to see the name of the lipstick to identify the colour.
I feel much better now that I have everything organised. It’s much easier to find things and make better decisions for an overall look. On a positive side, I thought I had way more makeup that this and so you can now find me at the nearest makeup watering hole to quench my thirst for more.
Plans for the weekend? I’m super excited to go see the Hunger Games! I’m halfway through the Mockingjay (third book in the series) and so far I’m totally hooked. I also want to do some shopping around for more makeup organisers available locally. I’m still on my organisational beat! Still need to find a better way to store my loose eye-shadows.
Something about me? This year I want to branch out from using the same makeup brands I have and try some new ones. So far, I have ventured into the land of NARS but I’m thinking to expand that to Inglot, Urban Decay, TooFaced, The Balm, Bobbi Brown and Sleek Makeup! Any other suggestions? What are your favourite makeup brands? Share!!!!!
