Makeup: When to LET GO!

Hi everyone!

Let Go, when you have to. Expired na eh?! 🙂

It’s been my guilty pleasure to check my social network sites through apple from the moment I wake up, pero sympre titingnan ko muna yung husband ko sa tabi ko, say a little prayer, check the time tapos kakapain ko na sa bed kung nasan na ang mga gadgets 🙂 Oo, natutulog akong katabi ang cellphone! ewan ko ba?!

After my morning rituals, I am all set to surf the net, news and beauty blogs! That will be the start of my vice, listing the stuff that I want to buy. But then, I am learning not to hoard anymore! Nasasayang…. unless it’s a makeup tool.

There are a lot of cult favorites everywhere but I only collect the one that I can use. Actually, even how cute the packaging of a makeup, when it expires… we need to let go of them unless you can still use the container and replace new product.

When to “LET GO”
