Coup de Foudre

This vintage dresser and stool has been passed down the female generations for years and last week my mum finally gave me her blessing and decided it was time for me to have it. As well as being gorgeous, it is surprisingly practical, a huge improvement from my old Ikea-drawer-set getup. Plus, it has replaced my disgusting Muji acrylic drawers that once stood in its place, giving the room a much more homely feel.

The first drawer holds my everyday essentials. On the left we have my very concise eye-makeup area consisting of a few mascaras and eyeliners ( I generally don't tend to bother beyond curling my eyelashes on a daily basis).

This area is my absolute holy-grail collection that makes up my foundation routine. The elite consists of: Vichy Dermablend Foundation
bareMinerals Foundation
MAC Brow Set
Eyelash Curlers
Cosmopolitan (BeautyBlender ripoff) sponge

This side of my dresser seems to change everyday as my blusher collection is much larger than this. (I don't know what it is but blush is the only makeup item that truly excites me) I just keep rotating my favourite blushes of the moment however, there is one blush that forever keeps pride of place in this area and that would be Illamasqua's Cream Blusher in Rude. OMFG - You can't clearly see it here as its under the MAC blusher  but this blush is the best thing that has ever happened to me in my entire makeup life.

The bottom drawer consists of my 'everyday' (I know) skincare and haircare.

Essentials in Skincare:
Paula's Choice AHA exfoliating Gel
Avene Gel-Cream
Clean & Clear Dual Action Moisturiser

The remainder of my makeup collection is housed in my -in comparison- horribly revoltion Ikea drawer set.

I hope you guys enjoyed a peak into my dresser.
