Have you been feeling like your makeup bag needs a bit of a, well, makeover? If so, there’s no time like the present — especially since “the present” happens to be the start of a brand new year. We all know that makeup should be replaced regularly, and this marks the perfect time to toss a few of the oldies lurking in your collection.

Need more incentive? Consider this: Getting rid of some old products gives you the perfect excuse to go and stock up on new goodies! Cha-ching!

So, go ahead and sift through your stuff — and get ready to fill your bag with all-new products. We love these ten finds for the top of a new year — they make you fresh, clean and ready to take on whatever 2017 has in store.

1 BeautyBlender, $20


Unless you’ve been living under a rock, chances are you have one of these makeup blending wonders on your vanity – but if you’ve had yours for a while, it might be time to toss it. Treat yourself to a new Beauty Blender to replace your foundation-stained original.

2 Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask, $58

Tata Harper

The name “resurfacing mask” is pretty accurate: This skincare powerhouse will basically lift off a layer of dull, dead skin to reveal a smooth, even-toned  complexion below the surface. It’s a natural, super effective option, which makes up for the fact that it’s on the pricey side.

3 Benefit Erase Paste concealer, $26


Use this handy concealer to cover up a multitude of sins — a good coat of this and no one will know how late you were up Netflix-ing.

4 Glossier Super Pure Serum, $28  


If your skin is in need of a pure, clarifying, yet totally gentle treatment, this might be exactly what your looking for — it’ll leave your skin looking cleaner than ever! See ya later, breakouts.

5 The Original Makeup Eraser,  $20 [/listehader]


It’s makeup remover and washcloth all in one. How genius is that?

CoverGirl LashBlast mascara, $8.99


Mascara is something you should replace often, so why not toss what you’ve been using and treat yourself to a tube of this cult classic?

7 W3LL PEOPLE Universalist Multi-Stick, $24


We love multi-tackers, and this handy little stick will give your lips and cheeks the most beautiful, natural-looking flush.

8 NYX Total Control Drop Foundation, $14


We love this ultra-buildable (and affordable!) foundation, which can totally replace your full-coverage base AND your tinted moisturizer thanks to its super adaptable formula.

9 e.l.f. blush palette, $4.29


Editing your makeup collection is all about finding products that save you space – and this steal of a palette does just that.

10 Sephora Shea lip mask, $3


The winter can wreak total havoc on your lips — that’s why we love this mask for this time of year. (And so does Emma Stone, who used a similar lip mask before stepping out on the red carpet at this year’s Golden Globes.)

It’ll give your pout that soft, smooth feeling so you have a fresh canvas for all your favorite lipsticks.
