Decluttering my makeup brushes and simplifying my vanity| Gimmemymascara

I’m a 20 year old, university going, beauty blogger and vlogger. I think it’s safe to say I spend about 80% of my days in my bedroom. This is my happy place.

And, considering I spend so much time in here, I like having pretty things to look at, and clean things are prettier than dusty old things. I’m not a neat freak, but I appreciate a good Spring Cleaning as much as the next gal!

A specific problem area of mine I’ve been meaning to work on for weeks now is my makeup brush collection. If you’ve read my post about what a Makeup Addict I am, you’ll know what I’m talking about. If not, check it out, here!

My biggest problem with my brushes was A) There were just too many of them and they wouldn’t fit in the DIY Brush Holders I made them and B) They were filthy. Cleaning makeup brushes is definitely one of those daunting tasks that I try to avoid for as long as possible.

The Beauty Blogger Tag | GimmeMyMascara

You’re probably asking yourself a million questions right now, who is this Gimmemymascara girl? MEWhat’s she like? What’s her story?  I’ve decided to share myself with you by answering a list of Beauty Blogger related questions. Without further ado, here we go!

1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight? 

Neither. It’s uncontrollable and has a mind of its own. It can be pin straight one day and VERY wavy the next.. Sometimes it likes to play along and dries into soft waves.

2. What is your natural hair colour?

Dark brown, almost black!

3. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?

A salon, always.

4. How often do you wash your hair?

About 2-3 times a week, which is scientifically the healthiest for your hair (at least that’s what twitter said. ;)) The other days I just spray in some dry shampoo and I am good to go! To read about my full hair care routine, click HERE.

5. Do you wear the same style every day or change it?

I think the whole point of beauty and fashion is self expression. I love my basic pieces and do have a defined style to a degree but I am always willing to try something new, especially with my makeup! Continue reading

My name is Anisa and I am a makeup addict.

My name is Anisa and I am a makeup addict. 

Group: Hi Anisa

Councillor: Let’s hear your story, what brings you here?

Well, I knew I was an addict when I was sitting in the library at school writing a blog post about DIY face moisturizers and masks  when I decided I needed a pen to jot something into my agenda. I unzipped the smaller pouch of my backpack and saw my Kardashian Khroma lipgloss in wildflower honeywhich I totally forget I even had. I pushed it aside and there was my $31 Dior Addict lipgloss under it, and another under that. I decided it would be easier to take all the lip products out of my bag to find my pen and then, well, then this happened.
