Make Up Cleanse...

1 comment

This post has been inspired by one of my absolute favourite YouTubers of all time - essie button. She recently uploaded a video about going on a 'make up cleanse' and at first, it hurt my heart to see how much make up she had and to hear about how much she got rid of.. but then slowly it started to just make sense.

 Just like every other beauty blogger, I am a huge hoarder and excessive buyer when it comes to make up, which is sort of what we do - but it can become an unhealthy obsession. All you want to do is buy buy buy, and it's all good if you actually make use out of a product but when it's sitting in your make up drawers gathering dust - really is it all worth it? De-cluttering is so important to me, and I do this a lot with everything else but never have dared to look into my make up and try to do the same because I just don't want to let it go, but it does cloud your mind a lot.

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE make up and it's a huge part of what I do, but weirdly sometimes when I would look at my make up collection it would just give me a headache - theres simply way too much and not enough days in the world to use it all. Also the fact I like to stay tidy, when it's cluttered around everywhere it doesn't help the situation. So I decided I too would get rid of some of my make up and start fresh, buy what I need and be happy with what I have.

Things like foundations, they are extremely expensive and I currently own 14 and I only use one. I don't reach out to them enough, I've either forgotten or they simply don't look good on my skin anymore which majority of the time is the case for me, I buy a foundation and love it up for a good month or two and then my skin just simply says NEXT - my skin is super fussy, and just wants different things. Now I'm not going to lie I will continue to buy more make up as I've mentioned it's such a big part of what I do, I'll still do my reviews here and there but I won't hoard onto them like I have been for the past few months because there isn't any point if my skin refuses to like it. 

I'm currently using a app called Depop ( on there you can sell your used or even new make up and make some money back! Letting go is almost like just saying bye bye to your hard earned money, so selling it and making some back will 100% make you feel better. I know it's made me feel less sad and just more grateful for what I have. Separate your make up into sections, look at it all and be real with yourself and keep the things you honestly will use. I still have more than the average, but it's like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders getting rid of some of my make up, girls don't be afraid, just do it all at your own pace there is no rush.
