This year is all about simplifying my life. Who needs a complicated life anyway, right?
My old make-up kit is this plastic container which contains make-up I bought when I was still working. Oh, I love my brands - Shu Uemura, Bobbi Brown, etc. Buying these brands can get pretty expensive. I have several palettes of eye shadows, blush, lipstick. My husband knows how expensive these things are when I asked him to buy me make-up brushes from Shu Uemura. I bet he's very happy I don't use that much make-up now.
My lifestyle definitely changed when I became a stay-at-home mom. I hardly had time to fix myself and put on make-up when Javi was very little.
But now I want some color on my face so hello make-up again. I am not an expert in putting n make-up and all those make-up products. I put on make-up for only 5-minutes and I've always loved the "no-make up look". For special occasions where I need to be fully made-up, I just go to a salon.
I looked at my old make-up kit and found that I have so many beauty products that I couldn't even empty out. And I am pretty sure they are all expired and breeding bacteria now.
I have this small pink make-up kit which I use when we travel. Well, it is now my simplified make-up kit which will contain only the essentials.
