How-to πŸ““ Spring Clean Your Makeup πŸ’„ Stash (and Make Room for More) πŸ˜‰ ...


I say β€œspring clean,” but these methods actually apply anytime of the year.

Cleaning out your make-up bag from time to time helps you get rid of products that are past their prime or that you no longer use.

That leaves room for some great new products!

If you feel overwhelmed when you open your cosmetics case, I’m coming to the rescue with some super easy tips that should help you get the job done in no time.

You’ll feel so much better once you get this task finished so get started right now.

1. Separate out the Products That Are Broken

Your first step is to go through everything in your make-up bag and set aside all the products that are broken.

Don’t throw them away just yet though.

If the product is one of your favorites and you usually use it all up, repair it by adding a bit of rubbing alcohol and pressing the product back together.2

If you are done with the color and won’t use it, then go ahead and throw it in the trash.

2. Sanitize Your Products to Prevent Bacterial Growth

Do you have eyeshadow palettes that contain a lot of colors?

They should last long enough for you to use them all up, but they may start growing bacteria over time.

To eliminate the problem, simply spritz them palette with sanitizer spray and allow it to dry.

You can also do this with blush, bronzer and pressed powder.

3. Buy an All-Purpose Palette and Keep Your Products All in One Place

You can find universal color palettes at drugstores and make-up suppliers.2

Having one makes it easy to keep all the eyeshadow, blush, bronzer and other products contained in one convenient place.

This makes it simple to take your look on the go and eliminates having to hunt through multiple compacts to find what you’re looking for.
