Spring Clean Your Makeup Bag!


Spring is here...and now, almost gone! Can you believe it?? It's almost summer! AHH! It's that time of year to clean out the winter mess!

Here are some ways you can "spring clean your makeup bag":

1) Clean your brushes! Your brushes not only last longer if you clean them regularly, but you get out all the makeup and bacteria that might be lingering on your brush. Yuck! Use a mild antibacterial soap to wash your brushes and leave them overnight to dry.

2) Invest in a new makeup bag for the spring. Organize your products and keep them clean. Target always has good, inexpensive makeup bags. You can also check sephora or your local tuesday morning if you have one. They, sometimes, will have brand name makeup bags that are at a great discount.

3) Out with the old, in with the new. Spring is all about fresh, soft and shimmering colors. So put the dark lipstick in the drawer and try something new for spring. Use products that are multi-functional. Look for compacts that have eyes, cheeks, and lips all together, or a product that can be used on both eyes and cheeks. This will simplify your makeup bag and will be great for traveling.

One quick note: I got a lot of responses about Lancome's Definicils Mascara. I will have to try it! It seemed to be pretty popular. Thanks for the suggestions.
