Makeup Declutter for Spring

Hey Everyone!

I'm the first to admit that I'm a bit of a perfectionist. Everything in my room has a home, and its always pretty tidy. However, when I'm completely bombarded with studying, tidying moves its way down my list of priorities and my shelves become a bit unruly. Take my makeup shelf for example. It still had Christmas lights (which albeit pass as normal fairy lights), it had all my shower stuff piled on it for convenience, and the actual stand had a heap of makeup that I don't actually use all that often. All this accumulated to one big problem- clutter.

Before:
I finally thought enough was enough a few nights ago and decided to tackle the shelf. It actually took less than half an hour and that included going through my makeup, giving it a bit of a clean, and deciding what was to stay out. 

After:
I think that looks pretty darn fabulous, even if I do say so myself. Its minimalist but still cute and I have my everyday products at hand without being overwhelmed with choice. The Soap & Glory products found their way back to their case which makes the shelf look less crowded and the Christmas lights are in the drawer ready to be taken out some other time. 

As well as my acrylic make up stand, do you notice a glass brush holder to the right? That's an old candle jar! I think its so perfect for brushes. While I was in the mood for whacking my stuff into shape, I also completed the laborious task of washing all of my makeup brushes: and they came up a treat.

This was such a simple, quick thing to do, but it made my room seem a lot fresher and of course: if your environment is organised you will be too.

Have you done a little bit of spring cleaning lately?
