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!

How do you store your makeup? Or what would be your dream makeup storage?

♡ Collection Speedy Highlighter Review! ♡

Recently I have been really into using highlighters, while browsing in Superdrug a couple of weeks ago I spotted this ‘Speedy highlighter’ by Collection and I knew I just had to try it! Mine is in the shade ‘Pearl sheen’

The packaging is nice and simple, perfect for popping in your handbag when you’re on the go. It is also perfect for applying on the go or if you need to top up throughout the day as it is in a handy twist up style, you just draw it along your cheekbones and then blend in.

I think the style of this is really handy and I find it nicer to apply than the powdered highlighters as with this you can just swipe it along your cheekbones.

The pigmentation of this is amazing and with just one swipe the highlight is gorgeous. I like to use it along the top of my cheekbones and then blend it in with my Real techniques buffing brush.

I had high hopes for this as I previously purchased Collections Eyes Uncovered nude and nude bronze palettes and fell in love with them. They did not let me down as I love this highlighter and I have been using it non stop since I bought it! Its great to use everyday or on nights out to add a little extra glow.

It retails at £3.99 you can find it here or at other places such as boots or Wilkinson’s.

Have you tried the collection speedy highlighter? What did you think of it?
