Why It’s Important to Declutter your Makeup Collection
Wearing makeup is a great way to express yourself and boost your confidence. But when you have too much makeup, it can be hard to find what you need, and it can become a source of stress.
That’s why it’s important to declutter your makeup collection every so often. Not only will it help you save time and money, but it will also make your makeup routine more enjoyable.
How to Declutter Your Makeup Collection: 10 Tips and Tricks
1. Start by getting rid of anything you haven’t used in the past 6 months
This is a great place to start because it will help you get rid of products that you don’t use regularly. If you haven’t used a product in the past six months, chances are you won’t use it again.
Therefore, get rid of anything that falls into this category. This will help you declutter your collection quickly and easily.
2. If it’s expired, toss it!
This one is pretty self-explanatory. If a product has expired, it’s time to get rid of it. This will help you declutter your collection and make room for new products.
Plus, it’s important to get rid of expired makeup because it can cause skin irritation or other problems.
3. Separate your makeup into categories (eyeshadow, blush, etc.)
This will help you see how much of each type of product you have and make it easier to declutter your collection. Plus, it will make it easier to find what you’re looking for when you’re doing your makeup.
Start by going through your collection and separating everything into categories. Then, take a look at each category and decide what you need to keep and what you can get rid of.
4. Invest in organizers to help keep everything tidy and easy to find
Organizers are a great way to keep your makeup collection decluttered. I swear by them.
They can help you keep everything tidy and easy to find. Plus, they’ll make it easier to use your makeup because you won’t have to search through a pile of products to find what you’re looking for.
There are a variety of organizers available, so take some time to find one that will work well for your collection.
Once you have your organizers, take a few minutes to put everything away. This will help you keep your makeup collection decluttered and make it easier to use on a daily basis.
5. Throw out any broken or damaged products
If a product is broken or damaged, it’s time to get rid of it. This will help you declutter your collection and make room for new products. Sometimes, we hold onto products because we think we can fix them.
But, if a product is broken or damaged, chances are it’s not going to be worth your time to try and fix it. So, get rid of it and move on.
6. Keep your most-used items within easy reach
We all have our favorite items that we like to wear on a daily basis.
To make your makeup routine easier, keep these items within easy reach. This way, you won’t have to search through your collection to find them. Plus, it will save you time in the morning.
So, take a look at your collection and decide which items you use the most. Then, put them in an easy-to-reach place.
7. Get rid of duplicates
Do you have more than one of the same product? If so, it’s time to get rid of the duplicates. Plus, it’s unnecessary to have more than one of the same product. So, get rid of the duplicates and free up some space in your collection.
If you have a lot of duplicates, you may want to consider getting rid of all of them. But, if you have a few that you really like, keep one and get rid of the rest.
8. Don’t keep products just because they’re expensive
Just because a product is expensive doesn’t mean you need to keep it. If you don’t like how it looks on you or if you never use it, get rid of it. This will help you declutter your collection and make room for new products.
Plus, it’s not worth holding onto a product that you don’t like or use just because it’s expensive. So, get rid of it and move on.
9. Don’t keep products just because you feel guilty
Do you have a product that you don’t like but feel guilty getting rid of? Or maybe it was a gift from someone and you feel like you need to keep it.
If so, it’s time to let go of the guilt and get rid of the product. It’s ok to get rid of products, even if they were gifts. And, it’s not worth holding onto something that you don’t like just because you feel guilty.
Maybe you can even regift it to someone else that might use it more than you do.
10. Find a makeup routine that is simple and easy to follow
A lot of times, we have a makeup routine that is too complicated. We add too many steps and use products that we don’t need. This can make our makeup routine take longer than it needs to.
So, find a makeup routine that is simple and easy to follow. Just focus on the basics and don’t add any extra steps. This will help you save time in the morning and make your makeup routine more enjoyable.
These are just a few tips and tricks to help you declutter your makeup collection. But, the most important thing is to just get started.
So, pick one tip and start decluttering today. You’ll be surprised at how much better you feel once you have a decluttered makeup collection.
