How I Circulate The Products in my Makeup Bag


Hi guys!

As you may have noticed, I have a lot of makeup. I like to try and use it all when I can at appropriate times. Here’s how I make sure that all of my makeup gets used.

I make sure there is one foundation that suits my skin tone in the bag. At the moment this is the Too Faced Born This Way Foundation. I have been going for a lighter coverage than usual. I’ll save the Nars Foundation for heavier duty days. This rule also goes for setting powder. I only ever need one.

For concealers, I have one for brightening and one for blemishes. I only have two concealers in my collection at one time anyway. They get used up pretty quickly.

As for coloured products, such as eyeshadow, blush and lipsticks I will choose colours appropriate for the time of year. My corals and brights are currently hiding in my bottom drawer in a makeup bag. They’ll resurface in the spring.

In the actual daily makeup bag I have two blushers and a bronzer at one time. I’ll swap these up fortnightly. I have lots of gorgeous blushes  and this way it ensures all of them see sunlight.

Eyeshadows are a similar story. Depending on how bored I am with a palette depends on how long it stays in the bag. I like to have a neutrals palette and a coloured palette. At the moment I’ve got my Clinique Wearable Nudes Palette and a Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Peacock. I also have a few cream eyeshadow bases in here. These depend on what shades are in the palettes.

Lip products! Lipliners stay in the bag regardless of anything else. I use these daily to try and shape my crooked mouth. For lipsticks; yes I have a ton! I have seven lipsticks in the bag at a time; usually a mix between nudes, reds and berry shades during the cooler months. I use one for each day of the week. I will also have about three lipglosses in there to and a bit extra if I want to. These get changed up weekly.

As for mascara, I tend to have a few depending on the look that I’m going for. I’ll have one for more dramatic looks, usually in black, a natural one for everyday use and a bottom lash mascara. At the moment I also have a coloured mascara.

And that is how I make sure all my makeup gets used. How do you guys sort your makeup collections?

Bye for now!
