First of I would like to apologies with my awful reliability when it comes to making posts. My exam started kicking in and I had to priorities! My last exam was yesterday though and now I'm freeee for the summer! (which means regular posts :D) So I thought I would come back with my new storage! Ive been slowly but surely been buying some new bits for my desk just to make everything tidier and prettier. As you guys may have seen in my photos I used to have bottles and makeup all over my 'desk' and it was beginning to bug me and I decided to give it all a re-vamp!
So this is the desk in question! I stupidly forgot to take a photo of the desk before I sorted it out but just picture a whole bunch of mess and your there! The desk is from Argos, which I got a few months ago, before a desk I was actually doing and storing my make up in a bag on the floor (How did I live?!)
I've been looking for a set of draws like these for ages, but they were either too big or just plain ugly, I picked up the desk from Asda for around £6 which I thought was a bargain, It's just the right size for my desk and fits everything!
One of the first things I got once I got my desk was this gorgeous 'My Jewellery' hooks. I got these from my friend, Brogans website The Beauty Closet, which I'm sure you've all heard off and if you haven't go check it out! I love these hooks they work so well with the area and saves me a visit from the tangle monster!
Just next to and on top my draws is where I keep all my daily essentials. I keep all my brushes in an old pink piggy bank that I've had for years! The mirrored trinket box was a gift for my 18th birthday which was a few days ago. (look out for a birthday haul too!) In that I keep some earrings and hair grips.
Onto the draws! The bottom draw is devoted to face, so I have my primers in the bottom right. Then I have my blushed and bronzers to the left. I used an old lunch box container to separate off my foundations and concealers (and yes I did purchase the full sized Hello Flawless, I'm in love!)
The next draw is eyes, and my elf HD powder which wouldn't fit in the face draw! Again I used an old lunchbox and in that I have kohl and liquid eyeliners, I have my cream eyeliners above that and then mascaras on the side.
The Next draw is lips! I don't have a huge amount of lip products as for succcch a long time I was convinced lipsticks didn't suit me (really it was the shades I was buying didn't suit me) Ive got my lip stains and glosses next to those and then some lip balms in the lunchbox with some odd earrings that I had nowhere else to go.
The top draw is a bit of a miscellaneous draw, still that I use on a less frequent basis, I've got a lot off testers in here from my Glossyboxes and then some contact lenses (I have awful sight) some body lotions and some nail stuff!
Then underneath my desk I have my Glossyboxes stacked up (I'm a bit of a hoarder and the packaging is so cute I can't bring myself to throw it!) next to that I have a Frontcover face kit, and my GHDs in the corner. Then I have these two boxes which I have heard for years and nothing with on the shelves, they're from Ikea and they came in a set with two smaller ones and two bigger ones, can't remember the price though!. In the top one I have my products that I use on a less frequent basis, like some other body creams and body sprays, that kinda stuff, and the bottom one is full of all my nail varnishes! . And thats it, my new and improved beauty desk!
