In my makeup bag + storage tips…

The Clinique bag designed for Nordstrom's May gift with purchase.

I was really excited about the Clinique gift with purchase from Nordstrom’s this month. I usually always get my Clinique from Nordstrom’s at SouthPark because I can use my Nordstrom Notes (thanks to the perks of using their card) and the colorful bags that have been designed just for Nordstrom.

This month there was a choice between cool and warm. I went with warm because it’s summer time and I like pick hues a little ‘brighter and happier’ when it comes to the upcoming summer season.

Note: This wasn't part of the gift with purchase.

As I mentioned this wasn’t part of the gift with purchase, however it’s something I consider essential no matter what time of year it is.

Previously I’ve used this product in gel form and I was absolutely in love with it, but when you in a hurry and your face needs a quick burst of moisture, the spray is definitely the way to go.

What I love most: Besides the amazing moisturizing feel of this product the fact that you can spray it on both before or after you’ve applied your makeup.

Suggestions: If you work in an office building like I do, your face can tend to get dry at times, so it’s the perfect thing to give yourself a little refresher mid-afternoon.

What I like most: There is no scent to this make-up remover, and if you are sensitive to smells like I am this is the best thing I’ve found so far.

What I like most: The all around the eyes is an excellent product to use if you’ve had more than a few sleepless nights and your under eye needs a little perk up.

Use the lipstick for a night out, and the gloss wear is excellent if you’re wanting to go with a more fun and flirty look.

What I like most: The Lipgloss can be worn alone, or as a finish to the lipstick.

Repairwear Night Cream & Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser.

What I like most: This rinse-off foaming cleanser is something I’ve been using for years. It’s not a harsh cleanser and it feels great on your skin.

Now for storage…

Storage...
All in a row…

I like to separate my make up by category, and these bags are perfect for keeping everything organized in your drawer.

  • Daily Essentials (products and colors used on a daily basis.
  • Eyes (Mascaras, Eye Shadows)
  • Lips (Glosses, Lipsticks and Balms)
  • Face (Concealer, CC Creams, Rinses, Scrubs etc.)
