I have Alex drawers full of make-up, make-up that I’ve never used, make-up I tried and hated, make-up that I like but just don’t get around to using.
Why? Why do I have all of this make-up? I really like make-up, I like finding a product that works for me, one that suits my skin tone and that I love. But why do we need so much?
I get that people collect things, whether that’s stamps, trains, or whatever floats your boat. And there are people who collect make-up, that’s fine with me. But for me, it just seems so pointless, why was I spending so much money on something that was sat in a drawer?
So I decided to get rid of a good 80% of my collection. I kept the things I used, whether that was every day or for special occasions, and I kept my MAC lipsticks. I suppose you could say they are something that I collect, but I use them and don’t plan on buying any more soon. I have a Selfridges voucher that I was kindly given by my team before I left my job in Manchester, but I‘m saving it for something that I need.
I packed my collection into a bag (or two) and gave them to my mum and sister to go through. It feels so good knowing that I don’t have piles of the stuff! I just have things that I love and it just makes sense.
Whilst I love seeing people’s make-up collections, it just wasn’t something I felt happy with having. I don’t want to have to buy loads of storage for things I never even look at, let alone use.
I’m moving out at the end of the month so I feel my huge make-up overhaul has come at a perfect time. I will only have to take what I love with me!
Would you consider having a complete make-up collection overhaul?
