Decluttering my makeup collection: an update

Back in august I wrote a post about how I wanted to downsize my makeup collection and how I would update you on the process after a few months.

A Lazy Girl’s Hair Trick

A small disclaimer at first: What works for me might not necessarily work for you. My skin is very dry and sensitive, so someone with oily or combination skin will probably have different needs than mine.
