Makeup Storage Solution. Need Your Help

Last week a had a shock when I found out that Ikea discontinued Fira (can’t believe that I found out only now but it’s been forever since I’ve been there for the last time).  And right now I don’t have an opportunity to visit Muji in store to find what similar organizers they have. And it’s quite challenging to look for such organizer on-line.

I wanted to get this variant

And here is what I am looking for:

I need a small wooden (or acrylic) chest drawers (something similar to Fira) to store the makeup that I use daily. I mean only my most popular makeup because I so tired of finding it all over the place. The makeup that I don’t reach for that often or use only for work is well organized. But my personal favourites are a total mess. And this is also the reason why I’ve lost several products recently.

I would really appreciate if you can help me with this, you are more than welcome to give the link to your post if you have a similar storage solution or to the online shop  where I can get something similar. Or you can just tell the name because I am not even sure what to look for! :insert sad face here:

This month I’ll be travelling quite a lot (mostly for work) and I am extremely busy so my disorganized makeup annoys me even more than usual. And I must solve this situation as soon as possible! Besides I am writing a  beauty wish list for Holiday now 😉


Vintage and Old Makeup Ads

I love vintage and old makeup ads, they are so inspiring and it’s nice to  see how the art of makeup has developed. Even if you look at the makeup ads which were made 5 years ago you can see a huge difference!

I have so many of them so I’ve picked some to share with you.  If you have  any vintage or old makeup ads or just those that you like a lot – I’d be very happy if you could share with us!

Want It: Burberry Lip & Cheek Bloom and Charlotte Tilbury Eyes To Mesmerise

When I saw Burberry’s Lip & Cheek Bloom some time ago, I got really excited, as there is nothing like a good cream blush and lip product two-in-one. Finally they are here!

The texture is described as “airy and bouncy” and the formula – as “sheer and buildable”. While the finish is supposed to be matte and fresh-looking.

Don’t they just look gorgeous? After week of being sick (seriously, I don’t remember when I felt this bad for the last time), this looks like an instant pick-me-up!  And I am sure they’d make anyone look better!

January Jones Emmy 2010 Makeup Look with Chanel

January Jones always looks stunning and she always has the most beautiful makeup. So I was happy to find out what products were used to create her latest look for the Emmy Awards 2010.

This is a take on late 50’s classic silhouette. The look was inspired by Irving Penn’s wife  Lisa Fonssagrives, whose signature extended eyeliner symbolizes the epitome of elegance.  The look was created by Rachel Goodwin.

Products that were used:

  • CHANEL Liquid Eyeliner in Noir along the lash line for an exaggerated cat eye effect
