Tuesday Tip – Makeup Organization

Tuesday Tip – Issue 13 – Makeup Organization

I caught this video from Huda Beauty and couldn’t resist sharing.

I’m usually pretty organized but I did find the tips quite helpful:

  1. Toss expired products. Shelf-life for products are:
    Powders = 2 years, Liquid = 1 years, Eyeliner, Mascara = 3-6 months
  2. Throw away unused products.  My personal rule for this if you haven’t used it in a year, toss it!
  3. For every new product, toss an old.
  4. Store daily and special wear products in separate bins.

My personal preference for makeup storage are those clear mini drawers. Perfect for indulging my OCD!

    I can’t part with my make-up. My eternal problem is that I just buy buy and buy stuff and then there’s always a surplus, which means nothing will ever get used enough before its shelf life is over. This mainly holds true for eyeshadows, lipsticks and eyeliners.
    How can we ever decide how much is enough and when to stop overindulging?

    This is something I personally struggle with it as well. I guess I keep a limit as to how much physical storage space I have. And I make sure to take a list with me every time I visit Sephora to minimize impulse purchases.
