Cleaning & Organizing your Make-up Stuff

Hi Lovelies,

messy make up

Had a clean up drive for my make up collection this weekend…It feels like an big achievement ! I had been just purchasing and stacking them up randomly which left me using only those products which were at the top of the rack and I used to miss out on many products which went into hiding (at the bottom of my collection). That led me to initiate a clean up & organize drive and am sooo happy with the results. Finding my make up stuff is so easy now plus the whole collection looks nice and organized.

Since this was a very helpful process for me, I thought I’d share my tips on how to effectively clean out your makeup collection and get everything organized for easy use.

Clean up:
  • Get all of your makeup together in one place before starting
  • Create piles to help you determine what’s staying and what’s going – New/Favorites/Regularly Used.
  • Go through and throw away all of the expired and old products first to make it easier to see what you have to work with. Throwing away the expired products is very important as expired products can cause skin allergies/infections.
  • Pick up each item individually and really think about which pile it needs to go in – don’t just start throwing things into piles.
Organizing:
  • Pick a space to keep all of your makeup stored so that it’s easy to locate anything when you need it, like a vanity, dresser, or bookshelf.
  • Use containers/baskets/boxes/etc. to store your makeup – you can shop for them online easily.
  • Organize your makeup by product type so you can find specific items quickly – I store base products in one drawer, blushes in another, lipsticks in another, etc.
  • You can also further segregate and store similar product types based on the color family. For instance: all your peach blushes are stored together, all nude lipsticks stay together, etc.
  • Store new products and duplicates that you’ve yet to open in a separate bin so that they don’t get buried and forgotten about.
  • Use things like vases/cups/jars/etc. to keep your makeup brushes together in one place.
  • Keep the products you use the most pulled to the front so you can access them easily.

I am planning to do this clean & organize drive once in each quarter. That would help me using my products effectively and also discarding the old/ expired ones.

I would love to hear from you girls on how do you clean & organize your make up collection. If you have any additional tips, please feel free to leave them in the comments section below. 🙂

Healthy eating habits

Hi girlies,



Sharing some healthy eating habits :

1. Dinner— dalchaval, Khichdi, ghee, lime.

2. Evening snacks—roti+ghee+gur or roti+ghee+chatni

3. Midafternoon—handful of peanuts +tea, 

4.  After every 30 min of sitting stand for 3 min,

5.  Eat atleast 1 teaspoon of ghee in the afternoon for a vibrant skin & a flat tummy.

 6. Dont drink tea immediately after reaching home

7. Dryfruits should be eaten on the way to/from office.

8. Say no to green tea. Dont have tea on empty stomach. Dont have more than 2 to 3 cups of tea a day. 

9. Eating oats will not result in making u thin. No one becomes thin by opening packets. breakfast~cereal &milk is the worst option.  Pohe,dalia,upma, idli, paratha etc are good breakfast. 

10. U can eat both chapati and rice for dinner. Difference between dinner and  bedtime  should be 2 to 3 hours. 

11. People who have to talk much have to drink more water.  Otherwise drink that much water that will make ur urine crystal clear. 

12. Eat sweets which u make at home. Nothing wrong in eating such sweets.

I have recently started incorporating these small things in my daily diet and already witnessing the positive changes.

Let me know how does it work for you.

Stay fit !!

5 Must Have’s in your Makeup Kit

Hello Lovelies ,

Howz it going ??

The other day I was making a list of all the products in my Makeup Kit…With the growing size of my make up kit, it’s becoming difficult to manage it.. (I sooo need tips to organize my vanity case !! ) while doing this activity, I thought why not have a compact make-up kit which consists of just the essential products…  So here’s my list of 5 Must Have’s in your Makeup Kit :

basic make up kit

 BB Cream: This wonder product multi benefits ! From toning to moisturizing to brightening, the BB Cream is suitable for all skin types and fits in the most compact of makeup kits!

Kohl/ Kajal: The Kohl/ Kajal is the game changer on a bad day! Just a simple swipe on your upper and lower lashes is all that you need to look effortlessly dramatic!

Lip Product:  Any lip product: Lip colour/ Lip balm/ Lip gloss… anything that would add on some colour to your lips and keep it hydrated !

Blush: Blush can be used for a day or night occasion. It adds a natural blush to your skin tone making you look fresh faced at all times!

Eye and Lip Makeup Remover:  Makeup remover is a must have to keep your skin healthy and clean. Removing makeup is as important as applying it. Sleep on a cleansed face to keep that glow intact!

This is a basic list which would help you sail through any occasion without any fuss.

This is my list of make-up essentials …. whats on your list ??

Do leave your comments & feedback….
