Decluttering My Makeup Drawer

As it’s a New Year I have seen lots of people on Instagram sorting out their homes and getting rid of things, in particular their makeup collection. Joe and I sorted out our cupboards a couple weeks ago and I also sorted out my wardrobe. My makeup desk really needed sorting out because it was difficult to find things as the drawers were that messy.

In the first section I have face makeup, the second drawer is for eye makeup and the third drawer is palettes. While sorting I found makeup I’d forgotten about. I have two bottles of foundation that are running out so I recently bought a new one and I ended up finding a unopened one that I must’ve already bought and it had rolled to the back.  


Both the Bourjois 123 Perfect Foundation and the Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid Foundation are too dark for me so I don’t why I still had them in the drawer. The Seventeen Stay Time Concealer has run out and I’ve got a new one so again I don’t know why I haven’t thrown it away. The Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder has also ran out and lastly I’ve never use the little powder so I’m getting rid of it.


I have so many lipsticks and a lot of them are very similar colour so I thought they sort through a d get rid of some. The lipsticks I got rid of are Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipstick, I’m not keen on the colour anymore. I’ve never liked the formula of both Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Liquid Lipstick and the Mac Retro Matte Liquid Lip Colour so I have never used them.L’Oreal Paris Infallible Nudist Matte Lip Paint isn’t something I ever reach for and I also got rid of a random lipstick I found.


I have a few liquid eyeliners and Rimmel Glam Eyes Liquid Eye Liner is the one I like the least and never use. The Max factor Eye Shadow is a colour I wouldn’t ever use so there’s no point in keeping it.I bought the Sleek Makeup Brow Kit when I was trying lots of different brow products to find one I really like. I did like this when I first got it however I haven’t used it in a while. L’Oreal Paris False Lash Superstar Mascara Black used to be my go to mascara but I’ve had this quite a while so it’s better to throw it away.  I don’t use eyeliner anymore and I had two of the Maybelline Master Drama Khol Eyeliner so I’m throwing the one that’s been used more. I used to use Maybelline Brow Drama Pomade Crayon for my brows and I did really like it however it doesn’t last long and I had to repurchase too often so I switched to a different product. These two are also used up anyway.The Mac false Lashes Extreme Black was sent to me as a free gift when I last ordered from Mac and I like using it on my bottom lashes as I don’t like them to be too thick however it has now run out. The last product I am throwing away is a random White Eyeliner. I have no idea why I have this and I’m pretty sure I have never used it.

My drawer does still look a bit cluttered but it’s a lot better than it was. Also the first section will look a lot better when I’ve finished using up the foundation bottles.

Have you had a clear out recently of your makeup collection?
