Store your makeup so it looks good!

I think that this blog post’ll be beneficial to those of us who have our things cluttered. Even though this is mainly for make-up, you can re-purpose it for your school/office supplies as well.

It’s every girls dilemma, you have accumulated so much makeup over the years that you are struggling to store it in a practical and clever way. Products go off because you pack them away and forget about them. By being a little bit creative, you can store all your makeup in a way that makes it not only accessible, but actually looks good!

Makeup Brushes: 

Order your brushes, divide them into categories, FACE, EYES, LIPS. This makes it easier when searching for a brush. Keep an empty brush holder on the side to hold the dirty brushes, and once its full, do a wash.

Jars:  Make a great brush holder. Soak in hot water and peel off the labels. Fill with sand (or coffee beans) and stand the brushes upright.

Pencil Holders: Another great brush holder. Pick some up from your local Officeworks, Big W, Kmart, Target, Hot Dollar. They are…

My First Make-up Brush Set

“You always remember your first.”

– S D Morton

My First:

‘Make-up Brush Set’

Looking through my make-up collection I came across this – my first make up brush set.


I’ve experiment so many times with this brush set when I was first starting out with make-up. I failed, I flopped . . . but then I got the hang of it. I still use some of these brushes every once in awhile because they’re still great.


This is a powder brush, but, I must admit it’s terrible at applying powder to my face! However, it does an excellent job of applying my base shadows – quick and easy.


Before I got this set, I  hated foam make-up applicators with a passion. So when I saw that there was one in this, my first thought was something along the lines of, I’m not even going to touch you. Lately though, this applicator has been growing on me and I’m starting to change my mind about them. It’s what I use now when I really want my eyeshadow to show or when I want a nice solid line of shadow around my eyes or to smudge my coal eyeliner.


These two are the ones I usually use for my crease or the outer corner of my eye. Initially they apply shadow lightly, so it gives me a chance to build up the colour to the intensity that I want.


This eyebrow comb/brush is something that I hardly ever use. Maybe it’s just me but I find brushing or combing my eyebrows tedious. For me my eyebrows are pretty tame and this really just doesn’t do much for me at all, but I do pick it up every once in a while when it catches my eye – sometimes.


It has individual slots to keep the brushes in place when close, and when it’s open it holds the brushes upright. I don’t really use the mirror because it’s kind of in an awkward angle for use and I apply my make-up infront of the bathroom mirror anyway.

This set has really helped me to progress in my make-up application skills. I got it at a local beauty supply store here in Nevis for $8.95.

Thanks to my mom for getting it for me.

CoverGirl Lash Exact Waterproof Mascara

“A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.” ― Coco Chanel

Review of the:  

‘CoverGirl Lash Exact Waterproof Mascara’


I recently got the CoverGirl Lash Exact Waterproof Mascara – in the colour ‘Very Black’ – and so I wanted to do a review for you guys.

What this product claims:

  • Waterproof.
  • Clump-free.
  • Can hold a curl.
  • Defines and Lengthens.
  • Long-lasting.

The first thing that stood out to me about this mascara was that it claimed to be waterproof. I’d never had any sort of waterproof make-up before and so I was very eager to see for myself if this mascara could stand up to the test.

Defining and Clump-free? I applied it, and my eyelashes instantly became recognizable – my eyes looked so much more awake. There were no clumps at all!

Waterproof? When the mascara had dried, I decided to wash my face with a cleanser, paying special attention to my lashes. I did that a couple of times and it would not budge. Holds a curl? But, what I did realise is that this mascara – once dry – makes your eyelashes slightly hard. This product claims to hold a curl for as long as you have it on, and I guess by making your eyelashes hard it’s able to keep that promise.The curl in my lashes did not flop and the firmness of the lash is in no way uncomfortable.

Lengthening? This mascara didn’t in anyway make my lashes look any longer than they had been originally, so that’s a let down.

Long-lasting? Throughout the whole day I didn’t have to reapply the mascara once.

The packaging is simple with the all over pink and single blue line, the slim barrel makes the mascara great for travelling. All in all; this is a really good mascara and I recommend it! (8 out of 10)

Thanks to my sister for getting me the mascara and thank you guys for reading.
