Hello and happy Sunday. Lately, I’ve been in the mood for organizing stuff but especially getting rid of things that either I no longer use or are super old. I did this with my beauty/skincare shelves and I’ve even sort of developed a system to avoid hoarding.
You might have noticed that now some of my makeup products have numbers written in them. This is because I divided them by category and numbered them so that every time I get rid of one, I move on to the next. This way I ensure that I’m using up everything and throwing it away as soon as I’m done.
Most of this stuff is gone by now because I’ve used it up. This is also a good way for me to rediscover products that I’d forgotten about.
This is a part of my shelves that I don’t usually show because, to be honest, it’s kind of embarrassing. All these cases and bags were filled with stuff, and I went over each of them to throw away what I didn’t need, or relocate things. I ended up not needing one of the bags altogether.
This is simply disgusting. It was the makeup bag I took for trips, but as you can see, all the makeup looks old and a bit disgusting. I threw it all away and I will be reconfiguring my travel makeup bag with stuff I get from Ipsy. Stay tuned because there might be a haul coming soon.
I used to have two nail care bags and one big thing for face masks, which I don’t even apply that often. I relocated the brush and the masks to what formerly was my makeup bag, which made more sense since it’s not a lot of stuff.
I threw away many nail polishes that were dry or that I hadn’t used in a long time. I will do an unhaul on them soon so that you can see that process in detail. The stuff related to nail care is now in a bag inside the nail polish case, so everything is kept together.
Here’s my new reasonably-sized face maks bag.
These are the contents of my travel bag. I don’t know if you can see, but there are empty jars of product I am just carrying back and forth. Also, who needs four razors? Honestly.
I looked through all this stuff and ultimately came up with a separate bag of toiletries I will be taking to my dad’s house for when I stay over.
This was like that closet grandmas have where they keep everything they can’t find a place for. I have tissues, wet wipes, sunscreen, lotion, shaving gel, you name it, it’s probably there.
I looked through all of this and decided that the lotions could have a place outside and that I would use them up as daily use products. The tissues, hand sanitizer, and wet wipes were relocated to a bag, where they’ll be more useful. The other stuff remains in a case of its own, where it’s going to be easier for me to find it when I need it.
What is your organization system for beauty and skin care products? Let me know in the comments.
Love, Miss Camila
