Hey guys!

So Recently I have gathered quite the collection of brushes, expensive and cheap but for everyday make-up these ones have definitely stuck out for me.

Foundation Brushes

It’d argue it’s probably the densest brush I’ve ever used and it is so soft! The foundation just buffs straight into the skin when I use this one. I remember this being around 20 euros which isn’t too bad for how much I’ve used it! The other one is the Real Techniques Buffing Brush I got this in the face set which my boyfriend got me which came with a flat foundation brush too but I think this one is a good dupe for the Sephora one for those in the UK who can’t get their hands on it. Its also very soft but just that much thinner than the Sephora one. Would still recommend it to anyone!

Lavish Brushes

So these brushes I got from TK Maxx in a set of four it also came with an amazing fluffy brush similar to the Mac 217 which I lost :(. But this set was probably about 10 pounds and I reckon you could probably find it online. These brushes are particularly good for different things. The bigger one is good for packing on a base colour which is always handy in everyday makeup. The other one is good for smoking out the lash-line.

Blending Brushes

So can we just appreciate the Mac 217 for a second, legit love it so much, it blends my crease colours like butter. The hype is real guys, it is worth the money trust me, you’ll never go back! This Real Techniques deluxe crease brush is also a dream to blend eye make-up. It is very chunky but for a two colour blend it would be amazing, not for more detailed stuff I would argue.

Right so that’s all my favourites! let me know what your favourites are in the comments!

How I organise my makeup!

So this has been a difficult thing for me for quite a while, especially since I travel back and forth a lot from uni to Birmingham. I used to just have a massive makeup bag and it used to take me ages to do it every morning just purely because I was trying to dig for my foundation. So what I decided was I needed an acrylic organiser to help me out!

I bought my organiser on Ebay for £13.99 and it is the best thing I’ve bought this year I reckon. Really changed everything considering I know where everything is. What it did make me realise is that I have way too much makeup! Four foundations is a bit much Soph!

There are two compartments for brushes and really, mine is overflowing but I am working myself up to get rid of a few. 12 little compartments for lipsticks which are so helpful, you can see on mine too you can also use it for nail varnish if they’re small enough. Also, it has a bit one for foundation and stuff like that, I also put my mascara there as I like to just pick that up when I’m having a good skin day or something but I really like the sturdiness and the look of this organiser.

There are two little draws which I put my everyday makeup in, my mini sleek contour palette, concealer, eye primer, rimmel matte powder and brow palette.

The two other drawers are everything else, mostly face makeup like my big sleek contour palette and my highlighters and my other blushers. It looks quite empty right now because I decided that it was too much to have all my eye makeup in there so if anyone has a cool way of storing eye palettes that would be cool to know!

They’re just sitting in the drawer underneath at the moment.

Hope you like this idea guys, let me know if you want any detailed posts on the makeup you’ve seen.
