I had never really thought about discarding old makeup until I started reading organization blogs and realized that there were expiration dates for more than just mascara. I had always discarded mascara but just held onto other items such as eyeshadow for years and years. This week, I went through the drawers where my not-everyday makeup lives. I had quite a bit of junk in there that I literally hadn't worn in years!
My first drawer was FULL of eyeshadow. I had a bunch of drug store palettes that I honestly couldn't remember buying. I know the majority of them were around when I was in high school...yeah time for those babies to go!
(I'm not entirely sure how I ended up with all these pictures sideways....sorry!)
That was what I purged from the first drawer. 5 different eyeshadows/palettes and 6 eyeliner pencils.
That drawer looks so much better! The few palettes I have bought recently, a new eyeliner, and a sharpenere.
The next drawer had a bunch of lip products and other random things...
And the purged items from that drawer were a lipstick, chapstick, blush, and a powder.
Overall not a bad purge for makeup in one day!
It just makes me feel so much better when I am able to get rid of some things that have expired or that I am no longer using. It's like having a weight lifted off your shoulders =)
