So I made the decision to completely purge everything that was old, not used, as well as the non cruelty-free brands I still had. I threw out 3 drawers of makeup! The end result is a small but quality stash that I can easily navigate and will stay clean & organized.
My daily drivers: I live & die by CC & BB creams and mineral foundation. I also use concealer, eyeshadow, blush, bronzer, highlighter and mascara everyday. Towards the back of the drawer (where you can't see) I have my UD Vice 2 Palette, Tarte Femme Fatale Palette, and a few others.
Caboodle Canoodle: As a teen I was obsessed with Caboodles and I found I could repurpose these to hold items I don't use everyday. I don't wear lipstick or gloss on a daily basis; I keep them moisturized with lip balm most of the time. So, in the dark purple Caboodle are all of my lippies. The light purple Caboodle houses some free samples and travel sized items.
I also love my straight iron stand; it suction cups to the countertop so it stays put and keeps my vanity neat.
I repurposed some mason jars to hold my makeup brushes, eyeliners, jumbo eye pencils, and eyeshadow primer. I like the country feel of them and when they get dirty I can just put them in the dishwasher. I like durable and utilitarian tools; makes life easier.
I'm glad I was able to tackle this job and get it ready before I started working. It should help me cut down on time getting ready too.
Do you have any resolutions or goals for the New Year?
