Top Draw Beauty

To get use out of all the products that I own, I like to switch up and rotate my Muji storage. Although there are a few items that I will continue to reach for on a regular basis, I find that this helps me to take advantage of all my collection. Today I have put together a handful of products that I have been reaching for lately and those that have been in my top draw of my storage. 

When it comes to skincare, I usually opt for products that will add hydration and transform my lacklustre skin. The Aesop Fabulous Face Oil uses a concoction of juniper berries, jasmine and ylang ylang to prevent blemishes and promote glowing, supple skin. After purchasing this many months ago I haven't put it down and it has taken pride of place in my collection ever since. Although this helps to inject some well needed moisture back into my skin, I still needed an eye cream to help heal my dry, irritated eyes. The Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment was a product I discovered many moons ago, but I recently dug it back out after no other eye cream lived up to it's standards. This lightweight, yet thick, nourishing cream is fast absorbing and doesn't migrate into the eyes - Everything you need. 

As for makeup I have been loving lately, the Nars Copacabana Illuminatora pearlescent highlighter that adds a subtle sheen, making my skin glow on even the dullest of days. To finish I like to add a dusting of the Balm's Mary Lou Manizer over the cream highlighter in order to emphasis on my contour and the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Luminous Flush to add a wash of colours to my cheeks.  

I seem to go through eyeshadow and mascara like there's no tomorrow at the moment, so there's been a few that I have rediscovered. In the Summer, the Charlotte Tilbury Eyes To Mesmerise in Bette was my go-to shade, but due to it's cream formula I retired it come September. The bronzed, copper shade is easy to blend and looks divine under a mixture of eyeshadows including my Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita Palette, a quad that has been at the top of my Muji drawers for the last couple of months. 

As a lipstick hoarder, I tend to rotate my lipsticks seasonally; switching up the corals and pinks for the reds and nudes come Winter. The Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruellaa vivid blue toned red and Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick in Berry Couture; a subtle plum, have been the two lip products I haven't put down as they're both suitable for the festive season. 

What makeup have you been reaching lately?
