I was talking to my reader, Maria this morning and she asked if I wished my makeup collection was a bit smaller, a bit more minimal. I have to say I didn’t hesitate one single second with my reply.
Yes. I wish it was a lot smaller. As I get older I use a lot less on my face so I feel a bit wasteful that my collection is so huge. Also, I feel like I’m running out of ways to store the beast. When you need an entire room to store your makeup, well, you know it’s time to scale back!
I blame it on my blog though but if I didn’t have my blog? I think I’d be really happy with a say around 10 good lipglosses, a few lipsticks, several blushes, and one eyeshadow palette that contained all my favorite neutrals.
Now I can’t say the same for my fragrance and skincare collection as I’d likely be crushed without a ton of variety in fragrance and of course, I need all my skincare!
I kinda wish my collection was smaller at times! I tend to rotate things seasonally and I go through it every 5 to 6 months to see what needs tossing, what can be donated, and what I’m not using that can be gifted to friends or family. It’s a little wasteful at times because I’m not always using the products I really love since the beauty world moves so quickly and I’m always testing out something new.
Blogging the next best thing prevents me from just sitting down and enjoying my favorites sometimes.
How about you?
Do you sometimes with your makeup collection was smaller?
Or do you love the chaos of a big giant beast of a collection?
