#12DaysOfBlogmas// My Makeup Inventory and How I’m Going To Cut It Down.

Welcome To Day 10 of my #12DaysOfBlogmas series and if you’ve not been keeping up with the other 9 posts then I will leave them here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here.

2019 was the year that I REALLY got into makeup, I’ve loved it and started really investing in it for the love and fun of it. However I’ve realised that I’ve accumulated a decent amount of it which is not ideal. So to make sure that I’m getting use of my products and finding the love for it once again I’ve decided that I’m going to do an inventory which I will use to make sure I’m aware of how much makeup I own and actually use. I have two plans for making sure I use as much of my makeup as possible in 2020 and they go as follows:

  1. I am going to be doing a shop my stash style post every two weeks as a #MakeUpMondays post which will show you a bag of makeup which I’ll be exclusively using in that two weeks. That means that my content might be around it or I’m just using it to get use from it. That means that all my makeup gets used fairly and things are always in rotation. I’m also going to try to do a new section in my monthly favourite posts about my rotations to share with you what in my collection I’ve been loving the most.
  2. I am going to be on a makeup no buy until my birthday on 9th May, that means that I won’t be purchasing any new makeup at all. Now I will still be reviewing the newer things I’ve accumulated in the latter part of 2019 but I’m going to be doing more posts and looks on the products I already own and love. The only exception really is if I’m replacing things I need such as my cleansers or mascara as I only have one of them at a time on the go so I will need to replace them at some point. In my monthly favourite posts as well as talking about favourites from my rotations that month I’m going to be talking about how my no buy is going and anything I wanted to buy that didn’t.
  3. By the end of 2020 I want to be able to do a makeup inventory post and have less makeup than my 2019 one, I want to use up more of my products than I buy. This is going to be hard but I want to be more conscious about my spending and my collection as I’ll be moving home soon and also heading to uni (hopefully). I’m not trying to make miracles happen but I want to make small changes.

Okay so now we’ve got all that info out there, this is my makeup inventory! Before doing this I’ve actually decluttered a few products and passed some on so that I’m only taking what I love into 2020. I just wanted to point that out so you’re all aware that my collection was slightly bigger but now I’ve curated it down a tad.

  1. I’m starting a low-buy/no-buy in January too. Well, I actually wanted to start December 1st but I failed so hard lol. So the new date is January 1st!

    You actually inspired me to do a ‘shop my stash’ kind of post once in a while too, since I have so much to rotate I have some products in my collection that have been used once. It’s bad I know lol. I really need to start giving my WHOLE collection love instead of just the new items.
