I'm what some might call a makeup hoarder.
Simply put, I LOVE makeup. To wear it, apply it on my and other people's faces too. But in the last few years, I've overdone it.

Working at Mamamia means I'm lucky enough to test a lot of beauty products. Anytime my friends downsize their beauty drawers, I get all the stuff they don't want. I also spend a sizeable part of my paychecks on... you guessed it... makeup.
Alas, the small area I permit for all my beauty stuff is overflowing. And going into 2024, I've decided to let go of all the stuff I'm not absolutely obsessed with.
As such, I got rid of... a lot of makeup... As in over 50 beauty products. Most of it I'm giving away to friends and family. Some of it is going in the bin because it is about to expire. Mostly, I threw out powdered products that felt a little too chalky. Think bronzers, blushes and highlighters.
