10 ways to give your makeup bag a makeover in 2017
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
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.
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?
We love multi-tackers, and this handy little stick will give your lips and cheeks the most beautiful, natural-looking flush.
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.
