This past weekend I made an effort to be ruthless with my make-up, I do it frequently with my clothes but rarely with make-up, aside from nail varnish that gets regularly culled. There are favourite lipsticks I hang onto, despite being worn maybe once or twice in a year. Hygiene of beauty products aside, they're just taking up space and I'm a compulsive declutterer, so they needed to go.
The majority of my collection far surpasses the guideline shelf life and *touch wood* I'm yet so suffer any allergy from them. Mascara is the one thing I'm vigilant about updating regularly, but the rest falls by the way side. It was time to make a change.
So, declutter mission complete, I have emptied an entire drawer of lip products, most of which really didn't suit me but I hung onto in case of a really brave day. Let's not mention the fact I am the world's worst for keeping my lipstick topped up through the day.
Those colourful eye shadows that I dabble in playing with every now and then have made room for my staple neutrals, with just a couple of playful options should I need them. All brushes have been washed and stored accordingly and my daily make-up now sits in a handy make-up bag, instead of muddled into everything else. I think I may have just streamlined my morning routine for the better.
PS, you can get a better perspective of my room (and a look at those mini drawers) in my bedroom details post.
