My story in a nutshell is this: I live between two houses. But it’s not quite as stressful as it sounds. My boyfriend lives in the Staffordshire area and I still have my own house in Manchester, in which we alternate weekends, and I usually spend my week nights at his.
If anything, it’s much more of a stress for my actual make-up and beauty product collection. I love nothing more than having all my essential products with me at all times, and with the changing of houses, it sometimes means my favorite moisturiser or foundation is left at the other house. Seems no biggy to some people, but for all you make-up and beauty junkies out there, you’ll feel my frustration when I have to use a second – or third – favourite.
Which has led me to introduce you to my newest purchase, this sleek and stylish beauty storage case from Domu. The case comes from the brands new make-up and beauty inspired storage range called Beautify – a range of classic and modern accessories to keep all items tidy. With cosmetics and beauty products becoming the largest industry women spend disposable money on these days, it’s only natural that we need cute accessories to store them in.
I’m a sucker for elegant, timeless black and silver colourways, so when I came across this smart and sassy little case, I knew this would be a great way to store all my favourites in one place at my boyfriends place. But because it’s a lightweight carry case, I can just pick it up in the mornings and take it into my car with me. So if I end up going back to Manchester for the night with me, my ‘face’ can still come with me.
A much needed idea I wish I had thought of ages ago!
It’s super space deceiving, with pull-out trays and compartments to store just about anything. There are slots for eye pens and lip pencils, and compartments for all the potions and lotions you could need. This lovely storage case costs just £24.99 for a large size, and £19.99 for the next size smaller.
Don’t just take my word for it though, because there’s some other stunning ones of the site which are a lot more ‘funkier’ than this one, embellished with glitters and all kinds.
And whilst you’ve got me on the topic of my favourite beauty products, I’ve just been trialing out the rather luxurious Antipodes Manuka Honey Skin-Brightening Light Day Cream and Eye Cream. My love for Antipodes started when I began using their Antipodes Skin Brightening Face Wash, and received comments from a couple of people that in the mornings I was looking much more radiant.
As switching up my cleanser was the only amendment I had made, I had to put these compliments down the glow enhancing wash! So it made perfect sense to start exploring the brightening light face cream and eye cream. At this rate, surely my face will literally be lit up!
Well it’s only been two weeks since I’ve taken on this skin-brightening regime, but I have noticed that somehow my skin just seems to appear a little more clearer, and dare I say it, more radiant. The day cream is so smoothing and light to apply, with a lovely natural scent, so I’m more than happy to keep using these two creams in conjunction with each other to see if I really can achieve a luminous complexion.
Come back soon – I’ll be reporting on my full findings after it’s been six week!
