Spring clean your makeup bag

Spring is nearly here, and it’s the ultimate excuse to clean out your makeup collection!

Whilst organising and cleaning may not be at the top of your to-do list, we’re here to make it easy for you

With sunny weather right around the corner, it is likely that you will be devoting your time to enjoying the much awaited summer 2021, so now is the perfect time to get stuck in with a thorough declutter - you’ll thank us later.

A good clean out is the perfect opportunity to identify products you no longer use which take up space, and make room for new and interesting products. It’s also a chance to find hidden gems you might have forgotten, so follow these 5 simple steps to revitalise your makeup collection:

1. Lets get started

Whether you use a makeup bag or plastic containers, remove all products including brushes, sponges, and accessories, and move the container itself to be wiped down with soap and warm water. We all know the heartbreak of discovering your favourite powder has exploded or your eyeliner lid has gone astray with the leakage covering everything in sight, so give your containers a good clean so they come out sparkling!

2. Clean your brushes

People often find themselves wondering why their products aren’t performing as well as they should - more often than not this is due to dirty brushes. The build up of makeup, oil, dirt, and grime amongst brush hairs is a breeding ground for bacteria which can lead to acne or skin irritation. All you need to do is use warm water and gentle shampoo to clean through the bristles before leaving the brushes to dry on a flat surface - your skin will thank you!

3. Work out what you have

Sort out all of your makeup products according to categories, such as foundations, lipsticks, and eye shadows. This will allow you to get a full picture of your stash and find any favourites you might have forgotten, and establish which products you don’t use any more. Any still in good shape? Try giving them to friends or donating to a women’s shelter.

4. Out with the old, in with the new

With everything laid out you can see what to keep and what to throw away. Get rid of old products that you no longer use or have expired - the expiry date is probably much shorter than you think. It’s worth noting that wet products go off quicker than powder, and if you can’t remember when you opened it, check the texture - if it’s dried out, liquified, or smelly, it’s time for it to go. But not to worry, it means it’s also a chance to try something new!

5. Time to get organised!

Now you have a smaller but more useful and fresh collection, it’s time to move them to storage. This is where our Glamourcubes come into action. With a choice of rectangular or rounded handles to suit your vibe, these elegant vanity organisers come in a variety of sizes and up to eight tiers tall, so you can easily store all of your makeup in one organised and easily accessible location.
