Beauty Confessions: Waste Not, Want Not!
The Muse went to an all girl’s high school and once a month we all had to assemble in the gym, wait in line, and proceed to sit down with one of four priests to confess our sins. I swear confessing my naughty deeds was the most difficult thing ever. I admit that on occasion I’d make up things like, “I took the Lord’s name in vain…” just so I could get out of there really fast…honestly, I wasn’t going to tell him what I was really up to!
Now as embarrassing as it is to sit and confess all my cheek to a priest I have no such reservations confessing my beauty mishaps to you.
My latest beauty confession stems from the fact that I simply have WAY too much makeup. One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to tame the stash as it’s getting way too large. I actually promise myself this ever year but it never really happens.
Fact is I was sorting through some of my products a few days ago and I realized, much to my horror, I let some things go way too long without tossing them. That’s not really a big deal….the worst part is some of the items had gone bad and I had never even used them or removed them from the packaging.
I feel so wasteful when I do that. I try to rotate my makeup constantly. Toss items I don’t want or things that have gone bad, swap stuff I know I won’t use, or just give it away. It pretty much broke my heart when I noticed I had four, brand new, unused glosses in a gift set from a year ago that I failed to even break open and use. By now the glosses had gone bad and were just gross looking so into the rubbish bin they went but it left me feeling rather bad about the waste.
I vow to be stronger with beauty come the New Year!
How about you?
Any beauty confessing you’ve been wanting to get off your chest?
Are you sometimes wasteful with beauty bits and bobs?
The Muse is listenin’ and never judging…and of course she offers complete, unbiased forgiveness.
