Rotating My Makeup For Summer

To try and snap me out of lusting after Autumn, I decided to clear out my makeup collection, sell any makeup that doesn't get used anymore, rekindle the love with old favourites and purchase some new pieces to try out. I'm sure you're all aware by now how much I love to rotate my makeup and switch it up depending on the season, so I thought I'd share with you what I'm reshuffling. 

I've got a really bad habit of hoarding duplicate products, so I've decided to sell any that I know I won't get through. It's a great way of not only decluttering, but also making a few extra pennies to spend on new products. As I previously mentioned, I'm rekindling the love with many of my products, the Hourglass Surreal Light Palette being one of them, as it has been put it back in my makeup bag, making it easier to reach for on a daily basis. 

If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, then you'll know that I recently went and bought a few new things from Colourpop. After spending the last two months not really lusting after anything, I decided I wanted to treat myself. I spent Friday testing out my new things and so far so good - In fact I am tempted to make another order.

When I moved house, many of you will know by now that a few Essie nail vanishes got ruined. So over the past couple of months, I have been slowly replacing some of my favourites and building up my collection once again. I've finally got around to throwing out the shades that I desperately didn't want to part with and I've moved the Summery shades to the front to ensure I get lots of use out of them in the last six weeks of Summer. 

It isn't just makeup that I've been rotating, I've been reaching for more lightweight moisturisers, nourishing serums and cleansers that promote clearer, dewier skin. I've been sent quite a few pieces from the new The Body Shop Spa At Home range* including a body oil and exfoliator, which are both ideal for the warmer days when I want to prep my legs a little bit more. 

The Nourish Skin Renew Cleanser* is a new favourite of mine, I've been using it everyday without fail (although I've got a few new ones to try now!) as it's just perfect for melting away my makeup, making my skin feel super smooth and nourishing my complexion too. 

Do you rotate your makeup depending on the season? 

If a product is marked with a * it is a PR sample. this post contains affiliates.
