Getting my glam on with Beautify [AD-GIFTED}
In my days PM (pre-motherhood) I would spend hours getting ready for a night out, from having a long relaxing shower and blow-drying my hair, to finding the perfect outfit and of course, putting on my makeup. These days, I tend to hit the bathroom 20 minutes before we are due to leave the house, have a quick shower, spray on the dry shampoo and then quickly apply my makeup in a steamy bathroom mirror. Well . . . not anymore! Now I can get my glam on with Beautify!!
Who is Beautify?
I recently discovered Beautify whilst doing a spot of online window shopping. Their HQ is based in Manchester where the Beautify team design and source beautiful products for all of life’s memorable moments. It all began with a selection of table-top make-up and jewellery storage. Over time they have increased their range to include lighting, furniture, storage, art, textiles and more.
Beautify believe that the key to self-love is feeling confident and making bold choices to make you happy. They are committed to ensuring females, like me, have all the things they need to inspire them to be amazing.
Illuminating Makeup Mirror
Beautify sent me the Illuminating Makeup Mirror and makeup case to review in order for me to step up my glam game and thereby increase my self-confidence. As I mentioned above, for years I have been applying my makeup looking at my reflection in the steamy bathroom mirror and in the last few months since we refitted our bedroom I have used the wardrobe mirror but neither offers good lighting. The illuminating makeup mirror is the part of my beauty routine that has been missing for far too long.
- Frosted ring light mirror with 23 LED strip lights to delicately highlight all areas of your face
- The 10x magnifying mirror can be detached from the rear of the mirror, used independently or attached to the front of the mirror via internal magnets
- Touch dimmer lights – simply touch and hold the circle on the front of the mirror to turn on, adjust brightness and turn off
- The freestanding mirror can be disassembled to become a great travel accessory
- Curved edges on the base doubles as an accessory tray for beauty items, jewellery or hair accessories
- Lights can be powered by 4xAAA batteries or USB cable (provided)
My makeup currently resides in a selection of 3-4 makeup bags and an old shoe box – I know, classy right? So when Beautify offered me the 2 Tier Navy Blue cosmetic case I was over the moon. I can honestly say, I have never really considered using a makeup ‘case’, I have always associated them with the beauty professionals and I am far from that. When it arrived I actually squealed with excitement at the beauty of it. It doesn’t just look great, with its velvet covering it feels great too.
- Two tiers of space offer lots of space to store makeup, hair accessories and beauty brushes
- Removable dividers allow you to tailor your storage to suit your items. You can make six small grids, have 2 small grids and 2 large ones or take them out completely to store larger items
- Smooth, sleek finish in a classic navy with a complimentary cool grey interior finish
- Carry handle for easy transportation
- Size: H19 x W25.5 x D22cm
- Perfect gift idea for birthdays, Mother’s Day and Christmas.
Who would have thought that a makeup case could be timesaving? Since using it I have been able to find what I am looking for with more ease and efficiency without having to guess which makeup bags contain the eyeshadow I have been looking for. It’s amazing having a bit of a sort out, you suddenly come across items that you haven’t used since forever and assumed had been thrown away. The makeup case makes it so much easier to see exactly what I am looking for at a glance.

That cosmetics case is such a lovely colour and a really good size too!

It’s brilliant, it’s amazing to have some organisation to my makeup for a change x

I absolutely love the two tier beauty case – the rich blue colour and ample storage makes it an ideal accessory on any dressing table 🙂

The colour is lovely isn’t it, I’m so pleased with it.

Oh I love Beautify they have so many great buys. I must admit, I kind of love this Navy vanity case and it would be great to take away on holidays and weekends away.

They have some beautiful items, I really struggled to pick one.

I love the look of the tiered make up case I need something like that my make up bag is always overflowing on my dresser!
March 5 at 9:16 pm
I know that feeling very well, it’s great to be so organised now.

I need that mirror in my life. The lighting in our home is just awful so anything to help me apply makeup (when I do) would be great.
March 5 at 9:17 pm
It’s AMAZING if not a little scary when I get to look soooo closely at my face 🙂

They look so fab, and the case is so organised too. I am like you, lucky if I get half an hour to get ready!! However, with just one mascara and eyeliner in my possession, the bag might not be utilised so effectively! maybe I need a lesson or 2 in make up!!

I have only recently started wearing makeup regularly again. You know you could also use it as a craft case 😉

My mum loves her makeup case, its surprising just how much efficiency it adds to a beauty routine.
March 7 at 10:46 am
So true, and we all know that when we have children, efficiency is key!

I don’t really use many cosmetics, so probably wouldn’t have enough to justify a case like that, but the mirror sounds so useful! I can totally relate to steamy bathroom mirrors (and low lighting).

The mirror is my favourite, although I have noticed it had disappeared into my daughter’s bedroom already last night so I guess I had better invest in a second one for her birthday!!

I love the make up case, it looks great and such a beautiful colour. My make up is still in a plastic bag from the last time I flew (maybe 18 months ago?) shows how much I wear make up-or don’t! I love the idea of being more glamorous, just lacking the time and energy at the moment so I love the idea behind Beautify.

Haha yes I remember doing that after going on holiday, I think we all need a little extra glam from time to time.

What a gorgeous case. I keep my make-up in a basket but would love to have it all nicely organised and neat x

It’s like the dream isn’t it, to be able to find everything at a glance 🙂
