I have managed to do what I thought would be impossible. I purged a lot of makeup from an out of control collection.Over the past six months, I’ve been letting go and it’s been liberating! As a result, I’m resdiscovering old favourites, finding products I totally forgot I had, and more importantly, I’m falling in love with this whole thing once again. I finally feel I can finally get back to the business of blogging, and not just focus on Instagram.
I still have a lot of work to do. I don’t mean to sound like I’m boasting but I have more makeup to last a lifetime or two lifetimes. Remember, I’ve been blogging for almost 8 years so it’s years of personal collecting/hoarding combined with press samples, which I was fortunate to receive (which thankfully slowed down in volume when I stopped blogging regularly). I can still get rid of more. And I know I can.
There’s something very refreshing about culling the collection and only keeping things that I really love or things I will actually wear. So good-bye bright green eyeshadows and lipsticks that make me look like the Walking Dead, and hello to things that make me feel great and spark a little bit of joy when I slap it on my face.
What’s new with you? Do you purge your makeup at all?
