Best Ways to Scale Down Your Makeup Collection

If you still haven’t embraced the “less is more” approach to your makeup collection, now’s the time to start. You’ll save a lot of time, money, and precious space in your dorm if you put an effort into scaling down your makeup collection with these useful tips and tricks.

Try to Declutter

Kick off your decluttering journey by making a list of all the products you already have. Ditch the expired ones, and focus on only keeping the products you’re using regularly since they’re realistically the only ones you need.

Multitasking Products

When shopping for new makeup, try to focus on versatile products that can serve multiple purposes. Eyeshadow palettes with a wide range of colors are a good place to start, especially the ones with both neutral and shimmery shades that you can use as a highlighter, brow powders, and countering tools.

No Duplicates

Avoid having multiple products that serve the same purpose in your collection. Instead of buying a new product in a similar color and style that you already have, consider sticking to the one that works.

No Impulse Purchases

Even after carefully organizing your existing makeup collection, impulse purchases can ruin all your hard work. Think twice before buying new makeup and try to focus on the products that you really need.
