Welcome to the 3rd instalment of my makeup declutter series!

 

 

For part 3 of my makeup declutter series, I tackled my eyeshadow palettes! This was probably the smallest section to declutter, however that made it no easier. Eyeshadow palettes are one of my favourite things to collect, and parting with them was no easy task. Watch my video to see which palettes I’m getting rid of, and why!

What’s on my face:

Looking for the best (and affordable) ways to store and organize your makeup? Check out the post I just wrote all about it:

If you’re addicted to makeup like I am, you know how easily it can be to get lost in makeup clutter. Even if you have a small makeup collection, having an organizer or makeup storage system that works for you can make storing your products so much easier (and let’s face it: it looks way nicer!)

As the beauty industry has grown into the giant it is today, there are so many more options available for makeup storage. Unfortunately, most of the stores I’ve been to charge ridiculous amounts of money for the same products you can find on Amazon –  for a fraction of the price.

 

I’ve scoured the depths of Amazon to find you the best affordable makeup storage organizers and makeup holders!

So how do you know what type of makeup organizer to get? There’s an organizer for seemingly every type of makeup. Lipsticks, palettes, eyeshadows, powders, and more! The kind you’re looking for really depends on how much makeup you have and how you’re looking to store it.

Drawers:

These are one of the most common types because you can put nearly anything in them! Lipsticks, eye products, whatever you desire. I have the one on the left that I use to store the products I reach for daily, or products I want to use more!

Have a small makeup collection? That’s completely okay! You can neatly store all your makeup goodies in units like these.

Palette organizers:

This is an organizer I’m missing in my collection and will be ordering immediately! I love the idea of storing your favourite, or special palettes on top of a shelf. Whether it’s eyeshadow palettes, face palettes, etc. it’s a great way to have your palettes easily accessible!

Lipstick Organizers

These are one of the most common types of makeup organizers, but they come in an array of shapes and sizes. I love the left and middle, as they look so much nicer and take up less space. It’s great to store your lip products in holders like these, as it allows you to easily see what colours you’ve got!

 

 

Drawer Organizers

If you’re makeup collector or store your makeup in drawers, you will definitely want to invest in drawer organizers. These are the best way to keep your products organized and your drawers tidy! I like to separate my products by type – for example, I’ll have all my cream eyeshadows in one drawer organizer unit, powder eyeshadow’s in another, etc.

For this reason, these are seriously one of the best ways to keep your collection tidy and easily accessible!

 

Makeup organizing is one of my favourite things – so I often struggle with always putting things away. I’ve recently been trying to declutter my makeup collection and get rid of the products I no longer like or use.

You can take a look inside my makeup collection and see what products I’m getting rid of here!

The time has finally come for a makeup declutter! Well, technically the time came long ago, but I couldn’t seem to bring myself to do it. To say that my makeup collection is cluttered would be a gross understatement; I’m a makeup-hoarder, and not afraid to admit it.

Why I’m Decluttering

In the past, I’ve been quite a makeup-shopping addict. Buying new makeup every week was normal, and always made me happy.  It was a way to instantly improve my mood – I wanted to collect as much makeup as I could. 2018, however, has definitely been a time of change. I’ve started to shift into more of a minimalist mindset and realize how much product I’ve accumulated that I truly don’t need – and how desperately I need a makeup declutter. I think we as humans fall very easily into the trap of over-abundance. We think that the more we have, the happier we will be. It got to a point where I simply was overwhelmed by the amount of product I’ve accumulated and wasn’t using it effectively. There is so much that I don’t use, don’t like, and quite frankly a lot that just needs to be thrown in the garbage.

Join me in this makeup declutter as I attempt to tackle the mess that is my makeup collection. Stay tuned for the next video in this series!

This is my go-to makeup look for every day, when I don’t have a lot of time, or just don’t feel like doing anything particularly dramatic.

It’s easy, and really brightens the complexion (which is great if you’re like me, and have atrocious sleeping habits.)
I’m using a lot of my current favourite makeup products.

Don’t let the long list of products fool you – this really is an easy look to create!
