how much makeup did i have...

...too much! It was getting rather large and mostly unused.

So i had a ground breaking week, i decided it was time i went through my ENTIRE collection and chuck out those products that were 'gone' and anything that had remained unused for a while were passed onto my flat mates, they loved this.

If im honest i was only using, perhaps, 25% of what i owned. It was taking up alot of storage in my room, and i cant afford to keep stuff that im not using. I'll admit it was hard going through it all deciding what i could keep, what had to be put in the bin and what would be passed on...

But looking at it all organised and laid out now i feel happy, does this sound silly? Think about how attached we become to our makeup, especially if you have shelled out £30 for foundation and then havent used it, doesnt it feel like your literally throwing a £20note in the bin? Well, for me it did.

The plus side of clearing it all out, i 'found' items i had not seen or used in a while *ashamed* and im now using alot more of my products because i can see them all.

Heres a couple of snaps of how ive got it stored...
Snap 1: Is misc eye products at the back, then lip at the front and then at the side it new products ive not hauled or tried yet.

Snap 2: Is all my foundations, powders, concealers, highlighters, liquid bronzers, couple of cleansing items and primers.

Snap 3: Is all my eyeshadows, blushers, bronzers, cream eyeshadows, pigments, eyeliners, mascaras etc
