Current Makeup Storage


I think the best product I ever purchased to store my makeup products in was an acrylic drawer set from here. At first, my makeup was stored on my side table parallel to my window. However, that is also where my heater is located and it clicked in my mind that heat and makeup don't go well together. Well, unless your are baking or applying concealer, ok, that is besides the point. I decided to move all my makeup onto my desk under the shelf. It is quite difficult to explain, maybe you can see it in a room tour post, hmmm????


Anyways, at the start of the row, you will see my acrylic drawers. On top, I like to put my beauty sponges, any used eyelashes, and my Rimmer bronzer (with my MAC Soft'n Gentle, which I later discovered fell behind my desk). The upper drawer contains the following eye products: my Jenn Im x Colourpop Quad, MAC pigments, eyeliners, lash glue, and a MAC Creme Color Base. The second drawer contains the majority of my lip products being lipsticks, lip glosses, Benefit tints, lipliners, and a chapstick.

Laila Notes II.


It has been awhile since we last spoke, thus we have a bit of catching up to do. So sit back, relax, and get ready for another installment of Laila Notes. If you don't know what Laila Notes is, it was inspired by Grace Day's Grace Notes from her blog That Grace Girl.  It is basically a formal name given to a blog post where I am talking about a bunch of things.

New Blog Design.

Many of you might be wondering why I changed my blog design. It is mainly because I was told by some readers that my older design took too long to load which was due to the dense html/css code. Therefore I opted for a new and more simple design. I am feeling this black and white theme because it will really put the spotlight on my photos.

My Skin-Type Changed.

For the longest time, I went on about how my skin was a dry savannah, but now it has become more oily to combination skin. I have been wearing more makeup lately, more about that later, and I have definitely have seen a change switching over to base products geared to oily skin. My foundation is looking better and lasting longer, but I am getting a bit oily on my nose and the malar region of my face. Any recommendations?
