It's that time of year again where we need to clean out our closets and our makeup bags. This year, make a promise to yourself to do a weekend spring cleaning spree to toss out any broken powders and old mascaras. Here are three tips to help make the process easier and quicker
STEP ONE: DIVIDE & CONQUER
Divide your collection into coordinating groups by sorting items into piles, for example, lipsticks with lipsticks, mascaras with mascaras, highlighters with highlighters and so on. Once you have finished shorting, it’s time to look at the condition of each item and toss anything that no longer serves a purpose which could be a foundation with so-so coverage or a blush that doesn’t flatter your skin tone.
STEP TWO: DECIDE WHAT TO TOSS
The items in your beauty collection should make you look your best and fit your needs. I know we our all guilty of this ...but let go of the “I’ll use it someday” trap. The reality is you are 90% likely never to use it - that someday will never come. Also, remember anything that is expired is not a must have or must keep.
STEP THREE: ARRANGE YOUR REGULARS
Make arrangements for your everyday favorites and your backup stash. Once you have decided what works and what doesn’t for your collection keep the items you use every day easily accessible and keep everything else separated by categories: lipsticks, mascaras, eyeliners, etc. Don’t forget to make space for your skincare items by organizing them in the order you apply them - this is super helpful first thing in the morning and at night after a long day of work or a night out.
