Everyone knows that makeup do expire eventually, but how many of us actually throw them out regularly? I for sure don't... and I'm not sure why. One thing I know is that it takes FOREVER for me to finish using a product because I don't put on makeup on a daily basis. Throwing out unfinished makeup just feels like throwing money away. And just like anything else that we own, it triggers a part of our memory. The time and location you bought that eye shadow... The person who was beside when you bought it... That special event you went to with that particular lip gloss on... Everything is hard to let go, but letting go will make us feel lighter. Going forward, there'll be less burden.
Some have been in my drawer for literally years. I don't touch them anymore and would not dare to put any of it on my face.
If you're scared, let it go.
Some broke and leaked. It's impossible to take it anywhere.
If it's incapable to function, let it go.
Some are finished. Don't keep it for the packaging.
If there's nothing left, let it go.
And some, just plainly suck.
If it sucks, let it go.
The cap of this elf gloss broke off... not sure if you can see the crack on the cap. It makes everything else sticky :S
Making space for the new. I will be better.
Other than throwing things away, I also cleaned my brushes...... for the first time (how embarrassing) I'm one of the laziest people you can meet. I have a high tolerance for dirty brushes, but lately I find myself being scared to use them. Now THAT'S when you know for sure there's a problem.
Dirty and filthy
Shampoo, bowl, napkins
It was hard work, and it's definitely worth it! Looking forward to doing this more often in the future!
