I’ll be the first to admit, I have a bit of a makeup collection. Okay I lie, it’s pretty appalling how much there is. I try my best to maintain the size by donating / throwing out products I don’t plan to use anymore. I try and be more selective with my purchases, I often turn down companies trying to send me products. But as my role as the beauty blogger, reviewing the latest and newest products is just part of the job description.
One way to reduce the physical size of your collection is to depot some of your palettes. I’ve been doing this excessively lately with a ton of my collection, here is a shot of my “main” palette. It contains a bunch of neutral shades from Benefit and Bourjois, and it makes it very easy for me when I’m in a rush to just grab my Unii Palette and everything I need is already here! Shadows, blush and I use the darkest brown as a liner.
As a result, I’ve been able to clear out a lot more space and in effect “reduce the size” of my collection without having to actually throw out anything more 🙂
I’m obsessed with finding ways to optimise my space, learning about new storage methods etc, so if you have any other tips I would love to hear them 🙂
