Areavoices: Ms. Simplicity helps you organize your makeup

So I was recently struggling with having too many things on my bathroom counter. I am fortunate to have plenty of counter space but it just looked all cluttered and junky all on the counter. Everything was contained in lovely decorative boxes so it looked pretty. But I was ready for empty counters. Plus, everything sitting on the counter got exposed to dust and whatever else is floating around in a bathroom, yuck. So I tried a little experiment and pulled out everything that I use on a daily or weekly basis for my makeup. I suddenly realized I used very little of what I was actually storing and I made the hard decision to part with everything I was not using. I mean everything! That expensive lipstick that I spent $30 on 4 years ago and never wear because I look like a vampire in it….. good bye.
