Spring Clean Your Beauty Routine – challenge 3 and 4
I hope you’ve been enjoying your spring cleaned skincare from challenges 1 and 2. Here are your next challenges to freshen up your beauty routine.
Challenge 3 is to spring clean your make-up bag (and anywhere else you keep make-up)
Like you did for your skincare, get everything out and have a good look through what products you have. Ask yourself this about each one (be honest!)
Do I actually use this? When did I last use this?
When did I open it?
What does it do for me?
Does it make me feel good?
How does it benefit my skin?
Dispose of anything past the sell by date – I know this can be hard, but the efficacy will be lost over time and out of date products can cause reactions. Recycle where you can – I’ve just dropped a lot of to the Maybelline Terracycle scheme at my local Superdrug. Another great initiative is Planet Friendly Paint, where the brilliant Ameenah turns out of date make-up into watercolour paint!
Anything that is still in date but isn’t suitable for your skin or you’re definitely never going to wear – can you gift to a family member or friend?
The rest file nicely 🙂 I’ve got a small bag where I keep my everyday essentials and then a bigger box for my other bits (that I will be trying to wear more – see challenge below!!)
Spring clean your beauty routine challenge 4 – have fun with your makeup!
Perhaps in the sorting of your make-up, you might have found some forgotten gems or maybe something you bought but have never used. Your challenge is to put some make-up on but wear a different look to what you usually do. I don’t know about you but my make-up has been pretty lapse these last few weeks – now there is absolutely nothing wrong in not wearing or wanting to wear make-up, but I know that I feel better when I have done it. So I shall be doing the challenge too!
To take that further, try a different makeup look each day for the next 3 days.
Treat this as a really fun exercise – it’s a really nice way to try something new and freshen up your look. Something as simple as a coloured eyeliner can really brighten things up. If you don’t like it, wash it off – that’s the great thing about make-up. I always remember when I assisted a great make-up artist called Yasmin Heinz, she was so encouraging and didn’t mind if we got it wrong – she just said no probs we can take it off! Such a great philosophy for make-up, it should be fun and is a great way to lift our mood.
