Every season, I check the sell by dates on my makeup; making sure no products have dried up, been sitting there for longer than they need to be and rotating my products regular so they get more use. Decluttering and shrinking my collection can be difficult, so I wanted to share with you how I will be switching my makeup up for Winter and some top tips too.
During the Winter months I tend to reach for dewy, medium coverage bases, however Summer is usually filled with products that will keep excess shine at bay. Instead of sticking to the same products for weeks on end, I want to set myself the task of switching a piece of my makeup everyday, making sure I get use out of more of my collection. For instance, on Monday I will use my Tarte True Love Blush, on Tuesday I will use my Charlotte Tilbury Ecstasy pick and on Wednesday I will try and use a lipstick I haven't used in a while.
This Winter it's all about experimenting with my ever growing collection of highlighters. I love glowing skin, but I always go through a phase of only using a particular one before getting bored and using another. I want to mix it up, using a different one for different parts of my face to ensure that I get the perfect overall glow about myself. The Balm's Mary Lou Manizer and Becca Champagne Pop are all on my list to use more over the next couple of weeks since I've been reaching for the Cover FX Moonlight Enhancer Drops a lot instead.
As for foundation, I want to use the last of my Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue base up before buying a new one for the Spring and Summer period. I still keep to the three month rule, making sure that I either rekindle the love or rehome a particular product if I haven't used it in a couple of months so I've no makeup is gathering dust at the back of my storage.
Are you switching your makeup up this Winter?
