I've been contemplating doing a post like this for a while now, but I don't know, there's just so much negativity that surrounds any sort of content that demonstrates your makeup collection/vanity. Since coming back to blogging however, I've developed a real "don't care" attitude when it comes to stuff like that and so from now on, if I want to post about something on my blog, I will. I think the first thing that needs to be said is that this is by no means all my makeup, or even half, as embarrassing as that is. I do have a hell of a lot of products stashed away because of running Porcelain Beauty for the last two years, and although I make a conscious effort to go through my stash every few months and throw out products that I no longer want/require, I still have accumulated a lot. The second thing that needs to be said is that I store the bulk of my makeup in the Ikea Alex 5 Draw Unit which has made an appearance a few times on these parts in the past, but I store my every day and "current rotation" of products in the Ikea Malm Dressing Table which seems to work really well for me at the moment. Within the Dresser I have two of the Ikea cutlery holders which fit in pretty perfectly actually and just help to organize my makeup a little so it's not just one mass. Whenever I gain 1000 followers, I do a full makeup collection so make sure to keep your eyes peeled for that in the future. Other than that, lets get on with chatting about a few of the products I'm currently loving and testing!
BASE: The first thing I've got in this section is the Too Faced Born This Way Foundation* which I'm testing out again. As an alternative for lower coverage days, I've got the Clinique CC Cream* which is just lovely if you're looking for something light and dewy on the skin that takes like next to no effort on a morning. For days where I need a little more coverage, I've got the Makeup Forever Full Coverage Concealer, and then for a day to day basis, the Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer which is a real favourite of mine and to be honest, I can't see it ever really leaving the "day to day" section of my makeup stash. For powder I've got the Inika Powder Foundation* which is perfect for minimal makeup kinda day if you want to just wear it on it's own, or for a more full coverage look layered over a liquid foundation.
FACE: I have two of the Limited Edition Rebel Romantic* contour products, both the bronzer and the highlighter in this section for days where I'm wanting a super light and dewy base. For the rest of the time I have the Barry M Contour Palette and the NYX Blush in Taupe - both do a fantastic job, but I am on the hunt for more contour products to try. The Mary Lou Manizer by The Balm also sits proudly amongst this section along with two blushes; Illamasqua Velvet Blush in Peaked and Bobbi Brown Tawny*.
BROWS: In the brow section I have a few products ranging from The Balm to Mac and even Illamasqua, but my all time favourites are from Urban Decay. The Urban Decay Brow Box is fantastic and probably all you need to get the job done, but if you want to know all the products that make up my brow routine then hop on over to "Urban Decay Do Brows" where I've given you a run down of a few more products UD have to offer in the brow department.
