Makeup Purging

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 =)


  1. Hey girl!
    I'm not sure why (and maybe it's just me) but I can't see your pictures :(

    You've totally made me realize I need to look through all my makeup though, and throw out that OLD stuff!

  2. I think I've fixed it! Let me know if you still can't see them...
