Getting Organised!

Hi Ladies

I finally bought myself an organiser, and I realised, I have way too many products! (As if I didn't know that already) I am totally grateful for all that I have, both what I have been given, and what I have bought, and I do work hard to buy all these pretty things :)

I bought this four tier organiser, it has three drawers, and a hinged top. I find the top compartment a bit useless, since I like to have my other organiser on top of it, it becomes a mission to get anything out. So, I put extras of things I have in there, like nail buffers, eyelash curlers, etc as well as things I don't use often, such as fake lashes.

In my smaller organisers I have lip and eye products that I use mostly everyday.

In the top drawer I have my most used blushes, highlighters, powders and bronzers.

In the next drawer I have primers, who knows why I have so many, the search for perfect looking skin maybe? And that Illamasqua highlighter shouldn't be there!

Lastly are my foundations and BB/CC Creams.

And now for the problem... I am a hoarder of sorts, and have tons of products that I stash away and only use now and again, when I remember I have them. And I have no space for them in my new organiser!

As you can tell I love eye liners!

And I love lip goodies even more!

And face goodies are probably on par with the lippies!

So, I have no place in my organiser to put all of these products, and I find that if I don't see something, I don't use it. Which is a problem! 

I challenge myself to shop my stash once a week, instead of shopping at actual shops, I am sure I will rediscover some gems along the way!

How do you organise your beauty products?

Neon Striped Mani Monday

Happy Monday Ladies!

I did this mani last week sometime, and had not shared it on my blog, so here it is.

I was away this weekend, so I did not do my nails, and I am sick too! I wish winter could just end!

I used Sinful in 'Snow me White' as the base, which is a really good and affordable white polish.

I used a thin nail art brush to make lines, using different neon colours.

Keep a look out tomorrow for the first Shoesday!

El Cheapo Highlight and Contour kit!

I love a great bargain, and I love to share my finds with you on my page HERE. Usually my bargains are specials or sales, but today I have two amazing products for you that are just CHEAP!

These contour sets are from Dischem, and are only R50 each, they are from the Beauty Treats Brand! The palette on the left is the peach glow, which has warmer undertones, and the one on the right is the pink, which has cooler undertones.

I have used the peach so far, and I loved it! The highlighter is great, and isn't too shimmery, it just gives skin a radiant glow. The blush gives cheeks a flushed look, and isn't that bright cheap clown pink. The contour is the perfect matte powder, and blends well.

All in all, I am really happy with these two palettes, and I am even considering getting some extras to stash away for when these are finished!
