30 Days of Inspiration

13 April – Day Thirteen 30 Days of Inspiration

What’s in your makeup bag? 🧐💄💋

If you’re like me you’ve probably been strolling through sephora.com, nars.com, amazon.com…just shopping away.  As I’m getting my goodies every few days, my heart is filled with joy.  On the other hand, I quietly say to myself…where are you going to put this?  Did I already have a shade like this? 🤦🏾‍♀️ Oh my…not again…the clutter is back.

Have you read the book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up:  The Japanese Art Of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo?  I read it last year and I really enjoyed the ideas and viewpoints she discusses about clutter.  It really is a marvelous read📖.  What shall I part with to make room? I wonder…..

So, here is my makeup bag at home….

What’s in your makeup bag?  Are you throwing away items to make room for the new stuff?  When I really looked in my makeup bag, I declared that I needed it ALL. It’s my glamour kit, my everyday kit, my retro look kit. YAY💄💄💄😉

However, my makeup drawer is a different story. It’s packed with brushes, eyeliners, lipsticks, lip liners, more foundations, blushes, eyeshadows, primers…you name it. I had a quite a few products that I realized I could toss because I really hadn’t used it.  Then I found some items that were probably past their expiration date, so I erred on the side of caution and got rid of it.

Is my makeup bag and makeup drawer completely clean and neat? No.  Are there still items in there I probably should throw away?  Yes.  The most important question…Is it less cluttered and messy?  YES! YES! YES!   I’m satisfied with that for today😉.

I think I’m going to go play in my new colors…

So tell me…what’s in your makeup bag?

Until tomorrow…
