How To Do A Proper Beauty Clear-Out

I recently had a bit of a beauty clear-out and it felt incredibly good to make some space on my already cluttered set of drawers. I tend to forget what I have in my collection or lose interest in some products then buy more without really considering what that will mean for my storage space and maintenance later on down the line.

My mom has also always had an obsession with big lashes—the bigger, the better has always been her motto—so I’ve watched her go through various brands and find her favourites that I’ve taken on and appropriated for myself. For today’s post I wanted to talk about a few of my favourite mascaras and lipsticks that help me achieve the big lashes, matte lips look and how I plan to wear it as we dive into the autumn and then winter months.
