If you have noticed or seen me in person, I don't wear a lot of makeup. I think the older you get and the more texture aged skin takes on, the better off you are with a really clean surface and enhanced with a little blush and a tiny bit of concealer or tinted moisturizer under the eye. I try to pay more attention to my eyes with a little bit of eye shadow, eye liner and mascara and give my cheeks a little blush and call it good. Now that doesn't keep me from having a stock pile of makeup that I have tried and some were ok for special occassions and some were total fails. Anyway, if your makeup drawers are like mine, they need a good cleaning and purging. Everytime I take a look at my closet and try to update things a little bit, then I take a look at my hair and my makeup. Seems they both need some updates. First things first, get the makeup under control.
After tons of purging, clean and down to what I really use most of the time.
As I've shown you before, we have three small drawers in the center of our vanity and then each of us have a double door section under the sink. This is my side and I finally have it functioning perfectly for me.
I showed you this brushed chrome shelving unit I found at Ross a while back, it is perfect to hold tall hair products and tall bottles on the top shelf. The bottom holds creams, nail polish removers. deodorant and every day necessary things, plus there is room in the back for my travel makeup case.
The next drawer has my combs and and mirror.
The next drawer is overflow makeup and stuff. Now this is what it looked like when I cleaned out the first makeup drawer. Half of this is outdated and just plain things I don't like. It amazes me that these drawers can get out of control so fast and of course I need to quit buying stuff I don't like or need.
Just look at all that junk that I threw out. What a mess.
Now they are both clean and ready for summer.
No more makeup hoarding. Have you cleaned yours out lately?
You can still link up to Inspire Me. So much to see so check a few things out.
I am joining the following parties.
