Letting Go

New Year.
Same goals.

We're: decreasing our spending, passing on products that would better suit others and decluttering our lives in general.

Trash

Liquid products that contain sunscreen have a shorter shelf life so please discard them as soon as you notice a consistency change. That was the case with my beloved tinted moisturizer from Laura Mercier. You've already heard the story about the ABH Beauty Genius and that Iman cream-to-powder foundation is entirely too red for my complexion.

Passing on

In our Facebook group we're challenged ourselves to literally take stock of our collection. When those numbers start racking up you are faced with the realisation that it makes absolutely no sense to keep products that you're not using. Even if it was gifted to you; someone else could show it more love.

This was a follow on from the recent pencil eyeliner declutter. Everything above will also be passed on with the exception of that M.A.C eyeliner...

The Makeup Show L.A. 2017

I know, I know...I get back eva since. The task was trying to figure out if to separate the experience post from the haul. Let's lump it all together shall we? Prepare to scroll.

Sharalee thinks that this show had more of an uptight crowd. There were a lot of celebrity -and celebrated - professional makeup artists. Still, I didn't get the vibe that is was less friendly than New York. The Makeup Show on a whole has a more serious feel than IMATS. The Pros are about knowledge sharing and networking. Of course the brands are there to sell products but that doesn't seem to be the frenzied focus. Lots of shots are taken at Instagram trends and click bait marketing 😁These are real lovers of the craft that don't take kindly to fly-by-night 'online influencers'.
