My Monday-Friday at home with the boys is typically the same. As a mom, I quickly learned that keeping a tight schedule is the best thing for my babies, and for me to be able to run my household effectively & keep my sanity!

So after the boys are fed, playtime is over, and Mason goes down for his morning nap, I’m able to eat my breakfast and then get ready. When I’m in ‘mom-mode’ I want to be comfortable and effortless in what I wear, and how I do my makeup. I barely have time to get ready sometimes and I usually feel rushed. So my mommy morning makeup routine is quick, easy and natural. I just want to feel put together (and not scare my husband when he comes home from work too – haha!).

What I pictured above may seem like a lot of makeup, but it’s really not. I don’t use all of those products everyday. I showed 2 blush options, 2 lip options + 2 highlighter/concealer options. I wanted to show you what I typically go for, depending on how I feel that day. Sometimes I want a cream blush, sometimes I don’t. Sometimes I need more coverage – so I may use both concealers, etc. I also wanted to show you my go-to everyday makeup brushes. I have MANY brushes, but I find I reach for these the most. And I definitely love doing a simple makeup look using peachy-coraly tones. I feel I look more refreshed when I use these type of shades with my complexion.

Pottery Barn Mirrored Makeup Storage

A Glamorous Mirrored Makeup Storage

October 07, 2014

Seriously, how pretty is this mirrored make up storage?! So chic + Hollywood Glam, right?

Pottery Barn Mirrored Makeup Storage










I have a TON of beauty products (as any blogger + beauty junkie should)! I have been searching for something pretty, practical + functional to display on my bathroom vanity. I first saw this makeup storage a few months ago, but passed it up so I could continue browsing. I finally came back to it last week, and decided this organizer was the one for me << also partly because I had a Pottery Barn rewards discount helped sway my decision – hehe!

I bought the large makeup storage<< there’s a small one + a brush holder available too, if that’s what you’re looking for.

I am so (pleasantly) surprised by how many products it’s able to store!

This large one has:

5 divided compartments on the top, 4 side compartments (2 on each side), 2 middle drawers + 1 large bottom drawer.

Even with all my eye, lip + face products that I have, I still wasn’t able to fill this thing up…yet!

I’m still figuring out how I want to organize my beauty products in it. I spent sometime over the weekend going through + getting rid of any products I haven’t used in a long time, or that have expired. That definitely freed up some space. Right now, my mirrored storage actually looks a bit empty. But I will be able to fill it up with my latest + most favorite products (and of course purchase more!).

If you’re looking for makeup storage, I recommend you consider this pretty one – it will also give that extra ‘oomph’ to your bathroom!

What do you think of this organizer? How do you organize your makeup?
