The Daily Tray 03

I was due for an updated daily tray, so I moved everything around and shopped my stash to find some exciting beauty products to get busy with in March.
As you can see, whittling down my daily tray just isn't going to happen. I switch up my makeup almost every day, so it wouldn't make sense to have one shadow, one blush etc sitting out on my counter. When my beauty room is finally ready (should be within the week!) I will have this set up in there, but for now it stays in our guest bathroom where the light is best in the morning and I have room to spread out my beloved beauty products. This rotation will probably stay out for the whole month, with a few edits as we go along in case I get bored or fall in love with a certain look.
Lips are primarily easy and wearable shades right now, as I've been focusing on my eye looks and just need a pretty lip shade that doesn't overpower the eyes. My go-to has been my Kmart Naked lipstick topped with Dior Dormeuse, but I've thrown Chanel Boy back into the mix in an effort to use it up and be able to treat myself to another luxe lipstick to replace it.

My obsession with eye makeup stemmed from Larie's recent post which had me seriously swooning, but I showed restraint and instead of buying the exact products she used I reached into my stash and pulled out my favourite MAC palette - Royal Assets: 6 Warm Eyes which has a stack of amazing colours including MAC Club. I plan on using this palette in a whole bunch of new ways this month, and I'm excited!

Throw in my current foundation (L'Oreal Lumi Magique Light Infusing Foundation in N1 Pure Pearl*) and a Valentina perfume sample and we are good to go for the month!

  1. So many pretties!!
    The Physicians Formula highlighter there-is it any good? I've always wondered!

    1. I love being able to see my pretties every morning! I think the Phys highlighter is nice but wouldn't choose it over my TheBalm Mary-Lou Manizer - not worth the price tag (very high in Aus) but nice all the same :)

  2. I love it all! This is a really good idea. I need to do something like this to give some of my stash some love.

    1. It's a good way to speed up your routine in the morning while making use of your whole stash

  3. It's really a monthly tray isn't it? I really like the idea rather than having to dig through drawers every morning.

    At the moment I have a small basket of items I'm wanting to use up as I continue my little "beauty diet" and I make sure to use at least one item from that basket each day to keep me on track!

    1. Haha I switch it up every 3-4 weeks when I get bored but the name comes from it being the selection I have to choose from on a daily basis :) It's much easier than choosing each morning, I don't have time for that most mornings.

  4. This is GENIUS!!! Gosh you may have changed my makeup routine forrrrrever :-) Thanks Em!!!

    1. It's such a good way to enjoy your whole collection Erin, hope you jump on board!

  5. I do this very often. I get very bored and depressed being stuck at home with a toddler and in a small town where I don't know anyone so, as weird as it sounds, makeup helps me get out of bed in the mornings. Before I go to bed, I pick out the colours and products I want to use and lay them out, ready for the morning where I have a little play around. So that is my version of The Daily Tray! :)

    1. I agree it is really fun to sort through your stash all the time. I often get up in the mornings looking forward to applying my makeup :)

  6. I have to ask, what do you think of the Rimmel Rockin Curves mascara? I have it but I honestly do not know what I think of it. Sometimes it is amazing and sometimes it is awful :/
