Springtime is the perfect season to give your makeup collection a much-needed refresher. We all know this time del año is synonymous with dusting away the winter as an opportunity to start fresh with Spring Cleaning. And by reorganizing and decluttering your home, which includes your beauty stash, you also save yourself time and space in the future beyond yearly Spring Cleaning, as it's always nice to know what you have and where to find it. To help you get started, we're sharing five tips for spring cleaning your makeup collection.
CLEAN YOUR CLUTTER
It's important to check the expiration dates on your makeup products, as expired products can harbor bacteria and cause skin irritation or infection. Most likely, if you haven't used a product in 6 to 12 months, it's time to déjarlo. Start your Spring Cleaning by sorting through your makeup collection and throwing any expired products in the trash.
Clean & Assess Your Brushes
Dirty makeup brushes can lead to breakouts and skin irritation — and we don't want that... ever. But it's easy to forget to wash your makeup brushes, but use Spring Cleaning as an opportunity to cleanse your tools. If any of your brushes are too far gone (poor condition, major loss of bristles, etc.), we encourage adding some new ones to your collection, like our Blend-It-Girl Brush Set that features four for under $25.
If you have products that are not being used, consider repurposing them during your Spring Cleaning routine. For example, a lipstick like our Nude Collection Bullet Lipstick in 'Madison' can be used as a cream blush. Get creative and experiment with new ways to use your products in a way that would make your abuelas & tías proud.
Organize Your Collection
Invest in makeup organizers to keep your collection tidy and easy to navigate long after Spring Cleaning. Then, organize your products by categories, such as face, eyes, and lips, to make it easy to find what you need.
Refresh Your Collection
Spring Cleaning is a great time to refresh your makeup collection with new products. Swap out heavy winter makeup for lighter, fresher products like LUNA MAGIC's flower-inspired Romance Mini Palette.
