I had a lightbulb moment!

I don't know about the rest of you, but I often am overwhelmed by my make-up collection! I buy things with the best of intentions and they end up languishing in the back of a drawer. It's not that I don't need those items, I just don't have enough time to choose them in my morning rush! I'm not a morning person and am always running late, and tend to use whatever is closest to hand, which usually results in a random selection of items and the result isn't always pretty!

So, I had an idea!

Basically, once a week I am going to fill my weekly beauty basket with all of the items that I am going to wear for the week. I am hoping that this will have 2 positive outcomes.

1. Less time spent in the morning rooting around my make-up drawers wondering what to use = more time in bed and/or not being late all the time
2. Using up some of the lovely things I have accumulated = sense of satisfaction that i've not wasted a ton of money on things which sit prettily in drawers!

So, here's whats in my basket this week!

Left to right - top: Illamasqua powder blush in Hussy, Laura Gellar Spackle face primer, Revlon Colourstay foundation in True Beige, MAC Mineralise Satinfinish foundation in NW35 (I am in between colours so have to mix those two), MUFE Full Cover concealer in No.6, UDPP, Natural Collection lipgloss in Fondant, Miss Sporty lipstick in Big Love, Lash Blast Luxe mascara, elf Eyelash Curlers
Bottom: Rimmel Sun Shimmer bronzer in Meduim Matte, MAC MSF Natural in Medium Dark, Sleek Safari Palette, Black kohl liner and various brushes.

I think i'm going to love this little idea! Hope this helps someone!

  1. Hmmm that's quite a good idea actually. If you see the collection post I did a few mths back you'll see I have waaaaaay too much MU for a normal 7 day week.

    Hmmm where to the basket/box though? Decisions, decisions! LOL

  2. Ooh, that's a great idea! I could just see me spending hours trying to decide what to put in my basket...and I think I know myself well enough to know that my basket would be overflowing!!

  3. That's a great idea to make sure you are using a good selection of your makeup...I often just grab the nearest eyeshadows etc in the mornings and I ened up wearing the same one 3 or 4 days in a row, which is just boring!Will try this too!

  4. That's a really good idea! I might start doing that too because I've got so much makeup and it needs to be used!

  5. this IS a great idea. i might give it a try...
