Makeup Declutter: Study Abroad Edition (Part 1)

In which I actually start to get my life together and declutter all of the makeup I brought with me abroad to Italy!


If you read this post by any chance, which I literally wrote yesterday, you’re probably aware that I made some makeup resolutions for 2018 which included minimizing my buying, decluttering, and stepping out of my comfort zone when it comes to color.  Today I actually started my more minimalistic makeup journey by tackling the second item on that list: decluttering.

I basically took all of my makeup out category by category and asked myself if I needed each individual product, getting rid of anything that didn’t really “spark joy” in me a la the KonMari Method.  I filmed the whole thing, but the lipstick portion ended up being really long, so that’s going to get its own video – for now, here’s Part 1, aka every other product I own beside lipstick.


I know I didn’t get rid of a ton of stuff, but it felt good to lighten my collection by eliminating the few items I did choose to pass on – as I said in my video, this is the “abbreviated” version of my collection since 70% of my makeup is at my home in the US, so it’ll be reaaaaally interesting once I get home in the summer to do a full declutter/purge of my entire collection! *gasp*
