Okay so it isn’t quite spring time yet, but I decided it was close enough to have a spring clean. Not of my house (don’t be crazy) but of my make-up collection. I own far too many make-up items which I don’t really use and they just sit around taking up space. I decided to be brutal and throw them away.
Face products wise I ditched two different foundations which are really the wrong shade for my skin. I am always paranoid about looking too dark/orange so I don’t wear them. I also chucked a concealer which is questionably old now. I threw out my bronzer because again I am paranoid it makes me look orange, and also two blushers, one which is too red and an MUA cream blusher, which is nice but I just don’t wear cream blushers a lot.
I threw out a few lipsticks, mostly pale ones which don’t have a lot of pigment and are therefore a bit pointless, and Rimmel Moisture Renew in Nude Delight because it is virtually identical to Notting Hill Nude so it seems a waste of time owning both. I also threw out Lush’s It Started With A Kiss because I find applying it with a lip brush a bit of a pfaff.
From my eye collection I have abandoned Rimmel’s Scandel Eyes mascara as I’m not a fan, some scarily bright eyeshadows I never wear, and some tacky glittery eyeliners which belong in the make-up collection of 13 year old from the nineties (that wasn’t when I bought them don’t worry!).
And that’s it! Now I have lots more lovely space to buy exciting new products! Could your make-up collection do with a spring clean? What would you be willing to part with?
