Great way to use your entire makeup collection

Are you one to have so much makeup that you feel it is just laying around and your not using it. I got this idea off of Emily Noel. So I am going to get a small basket. I am going to put one of everything in it. For a entire week I am only going to use those items in that basket. Then the following week I am going to put those items away and grab some different items. This should be fun. I can't wait to see how it goes.

Sounds like a fun concept but I already have to much  open makeup and don't want to open anything else.

Let us know how it works for you!!!!

Sounds like a cool idea.  I just may give that a try also.

Try it with just your eyeshadow and blushes. That's mainly what I will do. But may switch a foundation not sure yet.

Re: Great way to use your entire makeup collection

I'm almost embaressed to admit that wouldn't work for me. I'd have only 2 baskets with one eye shadow pallette, liner, brow pencil,mascara and bronzer in one along with a basket containing 4 lipsticks, 2 blushes and 2 foundations that I wear only when I'm going out in the evening depending on whether it's fall/winter or spring/summer.

Re: Great way to use your entire makeup collection

I have a little bit more skincare than I need but not enough to do this. I'm doing better using them up one at a time. 

 

Don't really have any extra makeup. I've got a nice variety of eyeshadows but I'd never put any of it away. I'm always experimenting and finding new combos.

Re: Great way to use your entire makeup collection

Lol - I guess that's one way! Maybe another idea is to find makeup that works and don't keep buying more. I remember going through an open house a few years ago and couldn't believe all of the makeup the woman had in the bathroom. She obviously had a very patient significant other to put up with it! But, to each her own...!

Re: Great way to use your entire makeup collection

Don't get me wrong I love all my makeup. And it's fun trying new stuff. It's One of my favorite things to do is sit and take my time with my makeup and have fun. I have a lot but it's not really overboard.

Right now I don't really have a place to sit and do my makeup. I am disabled and it's a pain in the but to ask my mom to drag out my makeup cube. So I was trying to figure out a way I can use it more. So I thought I could put stuff in a small basket then after a week switch it so I wasn't asking her to drag out my makeup cube. We will be moving next year so I can't wait to have space for my stuff.
