In which I continue starting to get my life together and tackle the task of decluttering all the lipsticks I brought with me abroad to Italy!
If you read this post by any chance, 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, and if you missed it (or just want to watch me suffer again), be sure to check out Part 1 where I decluttered everything besides lipstick. Since the lipstick portion ended up being really long, I said I was going to make a separate video, and I have actually delivered… here’s Part 2.
Liquid lipsticks are my babies so this was the hardest “category” of makeup to declutter, but I managed to get rid of a few, which was huuuge for me. As I’ve said previously, 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*
