When did you last clear out your makeup bag? On that note, how old is your makeup bag? Ever given it a proper wash? If your responses are ‘can’t remember’, ’ and ‘…no’, chances are you’re not alone. A good clearout and a few product updates will not only help you to save face (that fossilised foundation is a bacterial breeding ground), but will also give you fresh ideas and ensure that you’re using your entire beauty arsenal to the fullest.
I believe that most makeup bags could do with a clean. My first priority would be to keep the brushes clean. As a professional I wash my brushes everyday but I think it would be more realistic for a non-professional to try and aim to wash them at least once a week, ideally twice. You will then be getting the most of your brushes and products. Oils from the face get collected onto the brushes and can then form a hard layer on top of powder products so you won’t be getting any product onto the brush. Eye shadow and cream brushes also do not blend well if they aren’t clean and dry.”

Are you confused and overwhelmed by YouTube? Are you tired of bad advice from sales people just trying to sell you something?
You have lots of products sitting in your makeup bag that you’ve only used a few times? Or perhaps you’ve never used them!
What about those eyeshadow palettes you’ve used once or twice? Or that blusher you’re not sure how to apply.
You feel anything but confident after applying your makeup. It never ends up looking like you want it to!
Wouldn’t it be great to have someone take a look inside your makeup bag and tell you which products are right for you and which ones aren’t?
