DuraColour Nail Strips

I found these at the Dollar store near my house. I decided to give them a try because they were only a dollar! I haven't tried Sally Hansen's yet, so I thought I might as well try these first. Well, they did not work! They stuck to my nails, but I couldn't get them smooth around the edges. I pretty much tried every single size and I couldn't get any of them to be smooth. This makes me doubt trying Sally Hansen's, but I never know...I might try them one day!

Garnier Fructis Pure Clean Shampoo & Conditioner

I bought this product about two weeks ago and I love it. It makes my hair extremely shiny but still having volume at the same time. I noticed that you don't want to use a lot of conditioner because it might not seem like it's working in the shower, but once your hair is dry you will know! I made that mistake once. The only downside to this shampoo and conditioner is that it seems to make my scalp very dry and itchy. I've been using head & shoulders once a week while leaving this as my daily shampoo and conditioner and it works great!

How I Organize my Makeup

This is how my makeup is stored in the top drawer of my bathroom! I don't own any face makeup so the only thing I have is really eyeshadows, liners, and mascaras but you can find a way to make it work with your makeup! :)

This is what is on the left side of my drawer. I found these containers at the Dollar Tree for a dollar! I wish I would've bought more because I love them. But anyways, this holds mascaras I don't typically use, eyelash curler, tweezers, mirror, and lip balms.

This is the jar I have in the middle by my toothpaste. It holds all of my eyeliners and the mascara that I use on a daily basis.

Lastly, this is what's on the right side of my drawer. In the back I have Sonia Kashuk and Sally Girl shadows. In the middle, it's a mix between Covergirl and ELF. I have them paired with the same brand and then in abc order. (I'm a little OCD) hahaha. In the front I have my eyeshadow primer, gel liner, and just a random shadow.

I hope this helped you get ideas on how to organize your makeup. I love that I organized mine because now I know where everything is! Good luck! :)

Updated Makeup Storage!

e.l.f. Studio Single Eyeshadow "Pebble"

I've tried to use this color from the e.l.f. studio line a couple times. I don't like the color at all. The formula is great; it's very pigmented and smooth. The color just seems to wash out my complection and make it look like a have a black eye. I don't like this! If you have a darker skin tone it might work, but for me it doesn't!

Ardell Lash & Brow Accelerator: Starting Day

I've been looking for a product to use on my brows because they are a lot lighter at the end then at the beginning. I've had a problem with this since I started getting my brows waxed. I decided to give this product a try because it's very inexpensive & reviews that I've read said that it works very well. I'll update with pictures every week so we can find out together if this stuff really works!

Maybelline Great Last "Clear" Mascara

I have been using this product to hold my eyebrows in place after I apply my eyeshadows and liners. I don't think it really works. The formula seems very watery. I think if it was a bit thicker, the hairs would stay in place more. I'm going to try to find an alternative for this because it's not working for me!

Claudia Stevens Skin Toning Serum

I bought this at Sally's and I have been using this for about a month now. I can just say that I see a difference in my skin texture. I only use this at night and I apply this right after I wash my face, but before my moisturizer. It's very oily because all that it has in it is different types of oils. When I wake up in the morning my face is spotless and extremely smooth and I would have to say that is due to this product. I highly recommend trying it!
