    My daughter recently got married. I don’t normally wear makeup but boy did the announcement of this event cause me to shutter. I actually went though my drawer and threw stuff out it was so old and then bought new – not a lot and a pretty bag to keep it in. Since it has been so long, I had a MaryKay lady come over to help. What fun!

    okay, I lied about the bag. I’m still looking for something that will fit in my drawer and my suitcase.

    Maybe if I read and watch some of the links above, I can get some good ideas to organize as I pick up items. The only “makeup” I have at the moment, is a sponge-on lip color from Avon, I think. It is somewhere in my car. Yikes!

    Hey Laura – Thx for keeping us honest! Makeup is a tuffie. If you’re interested in eco-friendly purging, you can take ANY brand of beauty products to Origins for recycling. The program’s pretty much worldwide, except it’s a no-go in Canada and Puerto Rico, so it’s not an option for you, unfortunately. :( But maybe something US-based readers could use? For more info, go here:

    I only have enough make up to fit in a very small makeup bag. The only thing I wear regularly is eyeliner and powder. But I also have foundation, lip gloss and eyeshadow. I don’t wear mascara, b/c I have really long lashes.

    I have hoarded makeup for years. Literally – I had things that I could remember using in high school. Anyway – after this challenge, I decided to go through my makeup and I ended up letting myself keep 4 different looks. I have a Mary Kay Roll Up Bag (I don’t know if they still have them but I’ve seen them on ebay) It has 4 compartments so I put 1 look in each compartment. I just hang it in my closet and keep the look I’m currently wearing at my sink in the bathroom. Yayy for me — my makeup is finally organized. :)
