Out with the old, in with the new! Spring cleaning isn't just for your house- your closet and makeup bag need some love too! Whether your holding on to a top you haven't worn in two years or that mascara you bought a year ago- spring is the perfect time to clear out the old to make room for the new.
When it comes to the closet- my rule of thumb is if you didn't wear it during the last season it was meant for- get rid of it (didn't pull out that chunky sweater you wear with leggings last winter, adios!). For non-seasonal, every day items take a good look. Have your basic t-shirts lost their shape? Is that still a flattering cut? Don't be afraid to get rid of old clothes, not only does it make room for new pieces, it's also very therapeutic!
Now for your makeup bag. Just because you don't wear makeup much and still have product you bought over a year ago doesn't mean it's still good! Check out this simple guide to the life cycle of your makeup.
Clearing your makeup is like cleaning your brushes. Most of us don't take the time do it but it's important. Speaking of brushes- spring clean those too! This DIY brush cleaner is still one of my all time faves to get your brushes squeaky clean!
