As beauty addicts, we know how hard it is when you have to “detoxify” your makeup bags – also known as, throwing products out. But hoarding that expensive foundation you never use or that expired red lipstick is not going to make your makeup collection look any better. In fact, it’s just really taking up space!

Whether you want to call it purging, decluttering, spring-cleaning, or detoxifying, when your collection starts to overflow, you know it’s time to toss away a few things. So if you’re having trouble decluttering your makeup bag, keep reading below for our 5 easy tips!

--------------------------


Run A Giveway On Your Unused Products

If you have lipsticks, mascaras, foundations that you rarely, or never, use – why not give some of them away to your friends? Sure, we all love collecting makeup; but sometimes it's nice to share and do fun giveaways to your friends who may better appreciate a lipstick colour that may not look as good on you skin tone.

Trade Up On Quality

Instead of purchasing affordable products that break as soon as you open them, invest in quality products that will last you a long time. Those products don’t have to be very expensive, but as long as they work wonderfully for you, keep them and continue using them!


Choose Your Favourites

If you find yourself using a specific product over and over again, keep it and stick to it. If you rarely reach for it, toss it because if you’re not using it now, you never will. And it will just start gathering dust and be a waste of space in your makeup bag! 


You Only Need 1 or 2 Of Each

You don’t really need a dozen lipsticks or eyeshadows of the same shade, right? Choose one or two formulas for each of your colours; and as for the rest, give them away if they were barely touched and used!


Think 'Multipurpose'

To really give your makeup bag some much-needed breathing room, think ‘multipurpose’ – lipstick as blush, your contour kit as an eyeshadow palette, your mascara as your pencil liner, and so much more. With this, you will be able to know which products are actually worth keeping!

Clothes, makeup, accessories—all of these things say something about our personality and we tend to change it up based on the occasion or just to suit what we’re feeling for the day. That also goes the same with our choice of perfume. 

Being a woman means that we all get to live different roles throughout our lifetime. This means stepping up your game and trying your best to live, laugh, and love more with the people you care about the most. Because of this, Avon, the number one fragrance company in the Philippines, decided to pay tribute to all the women--whether you’re a daughter, mom, sister, friend, or partner—through their new scent. 


The Avon Cherish Eau de Parfum is a tender floral scent with a heart of Jasmin that is known to be one of the finest ingredients used in perfumery which provides a unique and intense aroma. This is combined with creamy sandalwood that exudes both strength and fluidity paramount to every women’s persona. A concoction that gives both softness and allure, the charm of Avon Cherish promises to last all day long.

To compliment this, Avon also release Black Suede for your significant other, which has five different variants to suit any style, mood, or occasion.




The Black Suede Eau De Cologne has a strong alluring scent that captures the essence of genuine masculinity and is sure to charm any woman with its sophisticated, warm woody musk.




The Black Leather Cologne Spray, on the other hand, has a dangerously seductive fragrance that suits every man with an inner rebel. The irresistible scents of leather and wood exudes warmth and coolness.



For men who are casual yet classic, they have the Black Suede Essential Eau de Toilette that gives a carefree charm with its woody oriental scent.



Perfect for sensual and relaxed men, the Touch by Black Suede Eau de Toilette gives a warm an inviting scent that is sure to lure in any woman.




And last but not the least, the Black Suede Sport Eau de Toilette give a whiff of woody citrus fragrance that is perfect for the adventurous and sporty guys.
