Good afternoon friends, and Happy New Year!
This morning I decided to declutter and clean out my make up drawers.
Last year I wore hardly any make up, and when I did was drawn towards the same couple of palettes.
I love watching these videos on YouTube, and thought no time like the present.
I bought my make up drawers about 4 or so years ago from Amazon for around £40
6 tier/5 drawer clear make up drawers (Kardashian inspired, let’s not front), are easy to clean, store, and came with 3 sets of clear sturdy drawer dividers.

From the bottom to the top, each drawer I’ve emptied out, wiped down, and repacked getting rid of any out of date, dried out, or products that have hardly or will never use, with a before and after photo.
1st drawer – Eyeshadow palettes
2nd Drawer – Foundation/concealer/cheek tint/highlighter palettes/bronzers/blushers
3rd drawer – Liquid matte lips and lip pencils
4th drawer Lipsticks
5th drawer Lipglosses/eyeliners/mascaras
Top Tray – Setting powders/beauty sponges/lip balms/lip scrubs/liquid highlighters
For the final drawer, I rearranged, wiped down but only got rid of 2 setting powders and added a few beauty sponges that I didn’t have room for.
All together I got rid of –
3 eye shadow palettes (one out of the picture as smashed)
3 highlighter palette
2 setting powders
5 matte Liquid lip
10 lip glosses
1 liquid highlighter
3 eye liners
1 lip liner
7 single eyeshadows
1 single blush
I feel better knowing I’m using make up that won’t harm my skin or take up unnecassary space on my desk. (Even if I said goodbye to some of my favourite discontinued NYX lipsticks)
Have you had a declutter this New Year? If so, what did you clean out?
