A Simplified Makeup Bag

Along the theme of some early spring cleaning, I wanted to share a little simplifying I applied to my makeup routine. I used to amass tons of eyeshadows, liners, and other non-essentials, partly in thanks to my one younger and two older sisters. But It was also partly because I wanted to hang on to them for sentimental reasons (an eyeshadow I wore when Dan and I were dating) and for some bolder options (for the occasional Halloween or New Year's Party) which I now realize is a little crazy. I purchased this Revlon Quad (on sale) and it has since replaced all of my other shadow options.

Just some of the items I pitched.

I'm pretty sure makeup expires too, so all-in-all I think this was a good time to get rid of the old and in with the new. Here's my current makeup collection which all fits nicely into one handheld and easily portable bag.

That's all folks!

I love that the quad gives me a ton of different options, from soft and romantic to bold and fun, and it has simplified my morning routine. Now if I ever purchase a new mascara for instance, I'll simply replace my current option and not keep more than I need and use. Anyone else have a simple makeup routine? Anyone have an entire room dedicated to makeup like my sister?
