makeup organisation and storage systems

Makeup storage options that’ll help you to use all the products you own

One of my biggest challenges as a makeup junkie is to use all the products I actually own. Yes, I lead a hard life, obviously. My motto is, though, if I own it I should use it, and all my makeup storage solutions centre around that. If I can’t see it, I won’t use it. Simple. Therefore, I try to organise my beauty stash so I’m actually able to see everything when I open drawers and there isn’t a jumble of products inside. Here’s how I do it.


moving with your makeup stash

Moving with your (rather large) makeup stash

At the beginning of the year I was presented with the daunting task to make arrangements for our move from Germany to Shanghai.

Are you as obsessed with beauty hacks as I am? I industriously read every post on them but the thing is – I never ever use them.

Skincare hack: how to avoid tacky face

Twindlytuesday: Two skincare hacks to avoid sticky skin!

I don’t know about you, but I absolutely hate the feeling of product sitting on my face and that tacky feeling that comes with it. Liquid foundation that never settles? Urgh. Face oils that never properly sinks in? Bah. Can’t stand it. And besides, it’s not just that icky sticky feeling – it also stained bed clothes and a rising level of impatience, while I hop impatiently around and waiting for skincare to sink in so I can apply my makeup in the morning, and nobody has time for that! Enough reasons to tackle the sticky face situation once and for all.READ MORE

How to treat brittle, weak or breaking nails

If you have a look at my personal instagram, you might recognise that I’m a bit of a nailpolish junkie. I love the possibilities that polish and nail art give me and it’s also a nice creativity outlet. Astrid recently asked me how I care for my nails and how I prevent them from splintering, peeling and breaking. You wouldn’t believe it from pics, but a few years ago, my nails were a mess. Weak, peeling, breaking off again and again – I was desperate. I tried everything the internet said was useful, but nothing seemed to really help. Finally everything got better when I started the following regime.READ MORE
