Simple Bathroom Makeover + Makeup Organizing



I finally had the time to organize our bathroom last week, since we moved back to Houston and got our own apartment. If you follow me on Snapchat and on Instagram, you might have seen how I used window curtains for exterior shower curtains. I love how it turned out! It looks great and adds beauty to the bathroom. Another nice touch was adding some plants to make the bathroom feel relaxing and calm. I also love these wooden containers from my mom, made in my hometown in the Philippines. These kinds of containers will be on my shopping list the next time I go back there. They are so beautiful and well-made!

My husband loves how this curtain turned out too. It will also help during the cold season, keeping the cool air from getting into the shower. One issue that I encountered was finding longer shower curtains for the inside. Most stores only offered standard sizes, which were too short for our shower. However, I was able to come up with my own solution. I hand-sewed a piece of another shower curtain onto the existing one. This extended the length to help keep water from splashing outside. Our shower has two rods for holding shower curtains: one for the outside, and one for the inside. I moved the inside rod holding the clear shower curtain higher up, so that it wouldn’t be visible.  This helped make it look more aesthetically pleasing on the outside. You can see the changes in the before and after pics below.

BareMinerals Liquid Lipcolor


L’Oreal Paris Lip Pen in Lacque-y Charm

Bobbi Brown Lipstick in Burnt Red

I got this shade of BareMinerals Liquid Lipcolor in Juju as a gift from my sister-in-law. I love how easy it is to use and how creamy it is. The texture is a matte finish, which I wear all the time. Here’s a tip to help make it stay on longer throughout the day: use lip liner underneath it, which is what I do, and it works! You can also use concealer as a base :-)

What’s your favorite lip color shade for this coming season?
