Hello everybody! Its been a while.. I know. I have been so busy with work and things that I’ve just not had time to blog but I have missed it so much! While reading through some of my old blog posts I finally deciced it was time to start blogging again.
So many things have happened recently.. My best friend finally moved back to where I live and now I can see her all of the time again.. yay! I started a new job at Models own working with the things I love most..makeup and nails.. I love it so much and we have just realised a brand new makeup range which I am really excited about.
For todays post I decided to share my new makeup storage because my makeup collection has grown so much over these past few months and it really needed organising so I bought some drawers and some acrylic drawers to go on the top. I’m so happy I decided to sort it out properly and now I have an excuse to buy more makeup!
So first of all I have the little acrylic drawers, in the top compartment I keep all of my favourite nail varnishes and lipsticks and then in the drawers I have some other lip products, lipsticks, glosses and my beloved MUA lip laquers.
Then I have my big drawers; the first drawer is for all of my face products. Highlighters, foundations, contour palettes etc. I recently got a highlighter called ‘rainbeau’ which is a gorgeous rainbow highlighter.
The second drawer is filled with my eyeshadow palettes and my new eyebrow palette from models own which is literally AMAZING! Its just like benefits ‘brow zings’ you get a highlight for your brow bone, wax and a powder for filling in your brows. I have collected so many eyeshadow palettes recently aswell, my favourite at the moment is makeup revolutions new-turals vs neuturals palette!
This next drawer I just use for miscellaneous items like these.. the coloured mascara wands are from models own. They have a new mascara out where you can pick whichever wand you want to go with it depending on what look you want to go for!
Lastly I have the drawer where I keep all of my skincare items, my skin has been quite bad recently and so I decided to try the lush ultrabland facial cleanser and I have been loving it so far. My skin feels nice and fresh after using it and it has toned down some of my spots.
I am in love with my new storage and I’m so glad it is finally all organized.
Over the next few days I am going to organize a new blogging schedule and try to stick to it because I definitely want to get back into blogging, I’ve missed it so much!

I have to admit, I am a little bit rubbish at doing tags, usually I’m busy and I forget to do them!
I was inspired my Chanelle to do this post, She recently did a really great post on her blog which you can read here about her makeup storage. My makeup trolley has been in need of a tidy up for a while now and I finally got round to doing it, seeing Chanelle’s makeup all organized inspired me to organize mine better.
To store all of my makeup I use this little metal trolley that has 3 different compartments, on the other parts of it I use to store my skincare and hair products.
So that everything was organized I decided to give everything its own compartment; Makeup palettes and setting spray in the pink basket, eye products such as mascara, eyeliner and eyebrow pencils in one tin and then face products such as foundation, bronzer, concealer and primer in the other.
For lip products, the trolley has a handy little basket that hooks onto the front. It is perfect for storing my lip products such as lip glosses, lip balms and lipsticks. Although I might have to find somewhere else to store them soon as my lipsick/lipgloss/lipbalm collection is still evergrowing…
As you can see from the first picture my Real techniques makeup brushes slot in perfectly at the side of the pink basket which is a plus! I love how they come in those cases because they double as a brush stand.
I am really pleased with how this turned out, my makeup is much more organized now!
Hello everybody! Todays video is a Nude smoked look using the boots 17 ‘Nude smoke’ eye shadow trio that I got for Christmas. I fell in love with this and so I decided to do a makeup look based around it.
I love how this look turned out, this is definitely going to be a look that I will use more often!
I hope you all enjoy the video!
Also just a quick note: I have changed my name on here to Bella, I know it might sound a little random but let me explain.. My second name is Bell and as a nickname my friends and family call me Bella, I really like it and so I decided to change my name on here. My YouTube username is ‘Bella Beauty’ so now both my blog and YouTube match.
Hi Guys! Today I thought I would share with you how I store my everyday Make-up.
The tins in the picture are from B&M, I love them because they are so pretty and are just the right size for my makeup to fit in. I keep my other makeup that I don’t wear as much separate so that my dresser isn’t cluttered.
I seem to have a growing collection of lip balms and lipsticks now though so if any of you have any lipstick storage suggestions then please send them my way!
I am always looking for ways to improve my make up storage so if you guys have any tips then let me know!
On Sunday night I was browsing on the Superdrug website and as usual, I just couldn’t help myself and I ended up ordering a few things. If you haven’t ordered from Superdrug online before I definitely recommend it, the delivery is fast and if you spend over £10 you get free delivery!
So first of all I got these two MUA blushers, they were only £1 each! The top one is ‘Marshmallow’ and the bottom one is ‘Candyfloss’
Next I got these three lipsticks which were also £1 each! The first shade is ‘Tulip’ the second is ‘Totally Nude’ and the third just says ‘Shade 2’ I love this one the most! I thought I would try a darker shade for autumn.
I also got these two nail varnishes by MUA, ‘Cherry blossom’ and ‘Truffle cream’ I cant wait to try these!
I needed some eyeliner so I thought I would try the MUA one.. and their concealer in the shade ‘Fair’ I think I got a little carried away- everything I’ve showed you so far is MUA!
I have heard a lot about the Garnier Micellar Cleansing water so I thought I would get a Travel sized one to try out and see if I like it. I will do a review on this when I have tried it!
Last off I got this foundation by Rimmel- I mentioned in one of my last posts I would be going back to my Rimmel foundation as it is my favourite. It applies so nicely and it lasts all day, I love it!
One last thing I would like to share with you all is something I got today, I did my usual shop in Asda and in the reduced basket I found one of these for £1!! I always say this but never forget to look in the reduced section if you ever go to Asda because you can find some really good things! This is in shade 28 and it is so pretty.
So that was my Superdrug haul/Bargain of the day! Whenever I visit Superdrugs website I just cant resist ordering a few things. I love all the MUA range they have some really lovely things, next I would like to try out some of their lip laquers because they look amazing!
