Workspace Makeover!

Happy Friday!!

Okay so I went through a cleaning spree and re-did my "Beauty Space."
(Maybe this will inspire you to have a little 'project' for the weekend ;)

First of all, I decided my brushes needed a happier place to live:

Then, I decided I had too many nail polishes.
I went from this:

To this:

And then I decided my old caboodle (featured in the banner up top) just wasn't cutting it. So I hit up Target and found a very nice Caboodle!

It's about $25~ which is significantly cheaper than an actual "Make-up Train Case" ($50-$150!) but definitely something to only buy if you really need it... or just want it. ;)
I will admit- it IS nice to be able to see everything!!

I also went through my make-up and had keep/give/toss piles.. but I'm embarassed to show that =P

When's the last time you went through your make-up?
Did you know: You're supposed to throw things away after a certain amount of months?
-Mascaras -- 3 months
-Eyeliners or anything creamy-- 6 months
-Foundation and lipstick, and nail polish -- 1 year
-Powder blush and eyeshadow, and pencil liners -- 2 years

Have a nice weekend!!

Until next time--

  1. Girl, you will not believe this, but we have the same EXACT Caboodle now :P I got it about 3 months ago! We are officially the same person when it comes to beauty!!

    I am going through the process of reorganizing my makeup/brushes/nail polish stuff too, so I will have to take pictures when I am all done! :)

  2. What a LOT of makeup you have, my dear!

  3. Hahaha thanks MOM =P

    Emily! I can't believe this!!!!! OMG. Is it not the BEST caboodle?! The many shallow pans are so ideal. Hahaha this is too great, we definitely are kindred souls!!
