A Palette & A Partner - Week 20

Last week I mentioned that I was doing a little initial decluttering and getting rid of things in my home, including makeup products, as a precursor to the Kon Mari Method because I am reading "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up," by Marie Kondo. This was inspired from many sources, one of which is Kimberly Clark (Click HERE), my two besties Lindsay and Desiree, and an inner desire to declutter my life & my environment. An initial sweep of my makeup collection produced 25 eyeshadow palettes, 6 foundations, and 1 highlighting palette. I figured that if I decluttered my entire house and got rid of things I knew I didn't want/wasn't going to use/didn't really need/could benefit someone else, then that would ease the confusion of what to keep while engaging in the Kon Mari Method. I hope that makes sense. Well, because I got rid of some foundations and eyeshadow, I rediscovered some foundation I love and some eyeshadow palettes that I have not even touched. All of this week's palettes are new/unused, with the exception of the Lorac Unzipped Gold, which I purchased off of Poshmark and has most definitely been sanitized. Foundations that are being rediscovered and loved again this week come from NARS, Make Up For Ever, and Estee Lauder. The Ultra HD from Make Up For Ever is a tad dark, but I can lighten it up or correct it with powder. My favorite Double Wear by Estee Lauder needs to be used because, well, it's lonely and NARS Velvet Matte was the first foundation I bought when I found my way back to makeup! Look for the "Makeup of the Day" post for a stunning eye look and flawless foundation!
