#TipTuesday

One of the best things about doing make-up lessons is going through people’s make-up bags. More often than not I’ll find a very old, never-been-washed blusher brush (don’t be ashamed!) and an old, broken eyeshadow palette that has seen better days.

My advice to you ladies is to clear out your make-up bag now and again! It’s a cleansing process, you’ll feel liberated throwing out that year-old mascara and on the plus side you can replenish with some lovely new products.

So, how often do you clear out your make-up bag?

Handy little Muji plastic makeup/accessory pouches

Fran bought me one of these the other day and I can’t get enough of them now! They are super cheap and seem pretty durable. I’m using the bigger one for my personal makeup brushes whilst I’m travelling around and the smaller one for hair pins and bobbles as I’m forever losing them.

They’re perfect for our make-up kits too so if you’re storage geeks like us you’ll love them.
