Depot like you mean it: how I organized my blushes and eyeshadows


One of my recent resolutions when it comes to make up is to consolidate as much as possible. One way that I have found to do this is to depot anything and everything that I can so I can have the products more easily accessible.

I keep all my Z-palettes plus a few other odds and ends in these two Ikea cardboard folders. It is a cheap and convenient solution for storage. You could even write on them with a marker.

Latest discovery: Zoeva 142/Concealer Buffer

Zoeva 142/Concealer Buffer

  I must say that the Zoeva 142/Concealer Buffer brush (8.80€) had picked my curiosity for a long time. I had seen it in various blogs and I thought that the size and shape could be something interesting to play with.
