Declutter your beauty box
While staying home and keeping our #kisstance, it’s time to finally get around to those tasks we’ve been putting off — like cleaning out our makeup drawers and beauty boxes! Don’t worry, we have some tips and tricks to help you.
Put it all on the table
Empty out your drawer or beauty box onto a towel on your table or bathroom counter. Make sure everything is spread out so you’re able to get a good look at everything — leave nothing hidden or left in the box or drawer.
Sort it out
Go through your collection and get rid of anything broken, used up, or anything you absolutely don’t use. Next, check for expired items — makeup does expire! It’s important toget rid of any expired makeup items as it loses not only its effectiveness, but it also becomes unhygienic.
Here's a general reference guide to help:
- Eyeliner: 6 months to 1 year
- Mascara: 3-6 months
- Blush, eye shadow, and other powder cosmetics: 1-2 years
- Foundation: 6 months to 2 years
- Lipstick: 2 years
- Natural products: 3-6 months
Clean it up
One key to your flawless look is a flawless brush. That’s why it’s super important to keep them in tip-top shape by cleaning them at least every few weeks. Don’t fret, it’s not as complicated as it sounds! Using a liquid brush cleanser, simply spray your brushes after use and gently wipe down using a paper towel or washcloth. Keeping your brushes clean not only helps them last longer, but also ensures your look is flawless with every application.
Don’t forget! While everything is on the table, use a damp cloth to wipe down the inside ofyour drawer or beauty box.
Get it in order
Get it in order. Keep your most-used products toward the front of your drawer or beauty box so they’re easy to access. Organize your products in the order that you use them, keeping similar items together: foundations together with bronzers; mascaras with eyeliners; etc. What’s not visible will be easily forgotten, so be sure to rotate out your products every few months to make sure you remember to use what you’ve got!
Done and done!
Now you’ll see your makeup in a whole new light — and you’re ready to take on all your video calls flawlessly.Share this article
