clearing out my makeup

vanity 6.jpgHey everyone this weekend i spend my day at home decluttering & organizing my makeup. My makeup vanity/desk is the one place that i can’t keep up. One day is super clean then i get ready and it looks like an explosion happen. I knew i had to do a makeup declutter i have a lot of makeup that was not getting used and expired. To be honest i thought i was going to get rid of more makeup than what i actually got rid off, but hey at least is a start. Before i used to be such a hoarder when it came to makeup i will just keep buying and buying until i realize i only have one face wtf am i doing with so much makeup? This habit of purchasing makeup left a hole in my pocket because i don’t know if you know, but makeup can get expensive. Now i try to keep my makeup to only items that i absolutely love and use.

Hola a todos este fin de semana, me pase el día en casa organizando mi maquillaje. Mi tocador / escritorio es el único lugar donde no puedo con el desorden. Un día está súper limpio, entonces me preparo y parece que ocurrió una explosión. Sabía que tenía que hacer un declutter de maquillaje. Tengo mucho maquillaje que no estaba siendo usado. Para ser honesta, pensé que iba a deshacerme de más maquillaje del que realmente me deshice, pero al menos es un comienzo. Antes me gustaba tener mucho maquillaje, seguía comprando y comprando hasta que me dé cuenta de que solo tengo una cara. ¿Qué hago con tanto maquillaje? Este hábito de comprar maquillaje me dejó un agujero en el bolsillo porque no sé si lo sabes, pero el maquillaje puede ser caro. Ahora trato de mantener mi maquillaje solo para los artículos que amo y uso absolutamente.

this is the before, everything ends up on the table fill with clutter and the drawer end up with makeup not in its right place. Just shove in there that’s what happens when im rushing.

este es el antes, todo termina en la mesa lleno de desorden y el cajón termina con maquillaje no en su lugar correcto. vanity 3

I start by taking everything out and cleaning the dividers because they can get so messy. This usually takes me some time because i start playing with all the makeup to see what i want to keep or toss. I put music on, drink my ice coffee (or wine, depends on the time of day)  and just enjoy the process of cleaning and organizing.

Empiezo por sacar todo y limpiar los separadores porque pueden ensuciarse mucho. Esto generalmente me toma algo de tiempo porque empiezo a jugar con todo el maquillaje para ver si quiero mantenerlo o tirarlo.vanity 7.jpg

Three Helpful question to ask yourself to declutter your makeup

  1. Have i used this within the past 6 months?
  2. Will i use this soon?
  3. Does it fit my style?

If the answer is no then just get rid of it. If is in good condition and not expired i usually past it down to my family like my sister or cousin.

Tres preguntas útiles para preguntarte a ti mismo para limpiar tu maquillaje

  1. He usado esto en los últimos 6 meses?
  2. Usaré esto pronto?
  3. Es mi estilo?

Si la respuesta es no, simplemente deshazte de ella. Si está en buenas condiciones y no expirado, generalmente se lo entrego a mi familia como mi hermana, prima.

Marble top and new blog

IMG_0181

Hello everyone, today i wanted to share a quick diy i did on my bedroom dressers and my new blog. I had this idea to cover the top of my dresser with marble. Is an old dresser i had for years and the top was getting a bit distress. So what better way to cover it and make it look even better than with marble. I got this self adhesive marble paper from good old Amazon you can get yours here incase your interested.  I love the way it came out, it makes such a huge difference in my room.
