Continuing with the face theme, we are moving on to face makeup. Set that timer for 20, clear a space on your bathroom floor and go grab:
Anything else you smear on your face!
Have them all in one spot on your bathroom floor? These usually are super messy, so the floor is the best place to sort them. Now that you’re there, divide them in to:
Weekly/Special Occassion Use
Makeup from 20 years ago
Makeup that totally isn’t the right shade
Expensive and only used once
You guys. That old makeup from 1999. It’s done partying. Time to let it go. If it’s MAC, you can take it back to their store or counter to be recycled. Bring in 6 and they will give you a free lipstick. For anything else, recycle the container. Moving on to the rest of the piles…
Put your daily use items back in one drawer or makeup pouch. If it doesn’t fit in a reasonably sized drawer or pouch, it may be time to sort through it again. You only have one face, and it is currently one shade. That should mean one bottle of summer color foundation and one for winter. If your skin stays the same color all year, great, keep one bottle. Moving on, there should also only be one powder, one concealer, one blush/bronzer (consider a compact that contains both) and one or two “special event” items if necessary. Having only one of each item may draw the wrath of the Kardashians, but your morning routine will be So. Much. Easier.
