All this cleaning is making me realise how much skincare and makeup I have that I have not used up. I sometimes flit from brand to brand just because i got bored of the product i was using. I really do not require the 10 tubes of hand cream I own do I? Nor do i really use 15 different lip balms?

So I’ve decided my first resolution for the new year is going to be to finish using things before i buy new ones. I haven’t decided how this will work with regard to things like eyeshadow and blushes as I have never in my life seen pan on either of these products. But it will apply to all skincare, lipgloss/balms/sticks, mascaras (i have enough stashed away unopened for years…), foundations, etc. Wish me luck in keeping this new resolution up!

EDIT:

I’m even more motivated not to drown in my makeup now, after sorting through all of my makeup items. I found the eyeshadows i bought back when i first started to get into makeup. That’s 7 years ago. Somehow i don’t think my eyeshadow has been sitting all that inert for 7 years! After a bit of sniffing a very large  (kind of odd smelling) chunk of my blush/bronzer/illuminator/eyeshadow collection has gone into the bin.

I followed this and my nose as a rule while sorting out. I did of course keep a few of the items i just cannot bear to part with but on the whole everything looks a lot more manageable now.
