30-day minimalism challenge: day 9

Yesterday, I downsized my beauty collection. That really doesn’t sound very exciting, but I swear it was kind of interesting. I sometimes get overwhelmed by how much makeup I have, because there is a lot that I don’t use regularly. I end up spending a lot of money on makeup when I don’t even end up using it. This challenge basically just forced me to do what I really didn’t want to get around to doing.

I’m going to explain what products I ended up keeping in my little makeup drawer, separated by tools and then actual makeup products.

Tools (from left to right):

  • Real Techniques makeup sponge. This is for blending in my foundation and concealer.
  • It Cosmetics travel foundation brush. I use this for applying my blush because it’s just the perfect size for it.
  • Eyeko eyelash curler. Self-explanatory.
  • BH Cosmetics eyeshadow brush. I use this for blending my eyeshadow and I gotta say it does a damn good job. It’s pretty inexpensive too.
  • ELF Kabuki brush. I usually use this to apply powder or blush if I’m in a pinch.
  • ABH eyebrow spoolie. Hands down the best eyebrow tool I’ve ever tried, which isn’t too surprising, coming from the cult-followed brand. They’re known for their eyebrow products and this is just an amazing brush.
