FINALLY, my massive declutter is overrrrrr! I now went through my whole collection, catalogued everything (in my mind at least) and the products I’ve kept will last all year, until my next major declutter, at the end of this year. If I have to do this all over again at some point, I’ll probably throw everything in the dumpster and start anew. Hmmm! Not a bad idea but quite an expensive one! From now on, the products that I will buy, I will hit pan, squeeze the life out of them or melt them away and combine them into other products or maybe into a skillet to hit me over the head once in awhile!!!
So let’s get over this as quick and painless as possible….
Bye Bye to 39 Eyeliners
Since I have severe hooded eyes and some newfound eyelids drooping – a condition called ptosis arising from the normal (but shitty) aging process, eye liners are definitely not my best friend (liquid eyeliners are a definite no-no). Knowing all these nice and new features about myself, how on earth did I manage to buy that many (and a lot are not even open).
I kept a few, just in case, and they are mostly pastel or brown since I don’t do black. I really don’t force myself to become an eyeliner aficionado since, with my facial features, the basic principles of makeup suggest applying eyeshadow if I want to define my upper lash area.
Bye Bye To 9 Lip Liners
My allergy to eye liners didn’t really help my love for Lip Liners. These aversions probably come from my lack of any drawing talent whatsoever (I have difficulty drawing a stickman)… And since I’m more of a lip gloss girl (the glossier the better), lip liners are definitely not a makeup item that I use on a regular basis! When I do use one, it’s just to apply all over my lips and cover it with a gloss. Since I will always be a nude/pinky/peachy lover (for my lips that is), I normally go for a very neutral liner. From now on, 2 or 3 in my collection are plenty.
