For some reason, I am always one to rush when getting ready. Whether I'm up an hour or 3 before having to head somewhere, rushing is just a part of the routine. To try and sort that out and perhaps spare a few minutes, I have put my most reached for products in a little acrylic organiser which contains all the makeup I need on a daily basis and more. And I thought I'd show you!
Starting off with what's on top of the organiser, I have my all time favourite foundation which I reach for pretty much everyday and it is the Studio Fix Fluid foundation from Mac, it lasts long, is my exact shade and gives amazing coverage. Next to that I have a pen holder which I use for my makeup brushes and these are actually all the makeup brushes I own, it's barely anything compared to most bloggers and makeup addicts but it works for me and I'm pretty pleased with what I can do from just these! I've got a couple of Urban Decay brushes, a few Lancome ones as well as some Adore ones!
I do like dividing the drawers I have based on their categories, so my 'lippies' drawer contains two lipsticks, the Bobbi Brown lipstick in Sandwash Pink no. 22 which I have raved about for over a year now on the blog as well as the Maybelline Colour Sensational in Intense Pink no. 140. I also have my favourite lip gloss, the Urban Decay Naked Lip gloss in the shade Rule34. All are pretty neutral and nude which I actually like, I might change it up for the sake of Autumn, but I'm not sure I'm brave enough for bald shades just yet!
In my 'base' drawer I have my Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua foundation for days where I want glowy skin and light coverage. For my dark circles, I have my Mac Mineralise concealer which I absolutely love and is actually running out so I do need a repurchase soon. I also have the Bassam Fattouh correcting concealer which was recommended to me by a makeup artist and the INGLOT creamy concealer, both I only have here to finish up quite honestly since they haven't done the trick and I'm hardly a fan.
My 'miscellaneous' drawer contains eye products and face products which didn't fit into their drawers so I have the Naked 2 Basics palette by Urban Decay which is the perfect matte palette for neutral eye looks, the Clinique double face powder which I use to mattify my face. For blush, I have the Sabaya blush in 03, it has been a favourite for years, it goes with every makeup look whether I'm tan or pale and it is just an essential. For primers, I have the Brightening and Tightening Complexion Primer Potion for my face as well as the Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Eden for my eyelids, I've spoken about the two before and I do try to make time for them everyday as I do expect my makeup to last reasonably long because I never manage to retouch!
Last but not least, my 'eyes' drawer contains the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette for days when I want a shimmery look because they do last much longer and for day to day, I'll pop one shade on and I'm good to go, it really saves a lot of time! For mascara, I have the Roller Lash by Benefit which is just perfect for length and volume on its own, but if I have enough time to layer up, I do have the BADgal lash which just enhances the look even more. Another Benefit product is the They're Real Push-Up liner, I never thought I'd love gel liners until I tried this one and I'm just amazed by how easy it is to apply, the lasting power and the fact that it is always smudge-free, perfect! Lastly, I have my La Tweez tweezers which I just keep in case I need a little eyebrow fix.
That is all of my daily makeup essentials! What are you must-have makeup products on a day to day basis, especially when it comes the cooler months? Let me know down below!
Lots of love,
