My New Organised Makeup Collection
So I got a bit fed up of looking through four drawers of make up to find the one bronzer I'm looking for. I had a 'spring clean' and set myself a mission of to fit everything in one drawer. I have seen lots of posts and videos that people have been organising and de-cluttering there collections, it seems to be the new thing and I have jumped on the bandwagon and I'm LOVING IT.
I have seen the light, I don't need a whole chest of drawers full of make-up, you see videos on Youtube where people have whole rooms just for make-up. No one needs that much make-up. I am not a make-up artist so all the make-up I own gets slapped on my face so how many different bronzer's do I really need?
So I set myself clear targets. I got rid of all my 90% of my mac face products as I have know have worked out that it is these devils that break my skin out like CRAZY. I kept 3 blushers (that I couldn't face to get rid off) , a highlighter and a foundation (that I am saving to give to a friend.) I got rid of any products I haven't used in the past 2 months and slowly my collection started getting smaller.
Having a smaller collection I really think means that I actually use the majority of the products in there, at the end of the day, if you have a whole room of make-up there will be products that you have touched once.
I might have a smaller 'collection' but I'm a lot happier (and my friends where to who I passed all the unwanted products on to!)
Let me know if you prefer to have a whole room of make-up or just a drawer?
