Put some spring in your makeup bag
There is a lot we can do to spruce up our tired winter looks for springtime, but don’t forget that your makeup bag also needs a thorough spring cleaning.

First, empty out the contents of your beauty tote onto a clean paper towel. Thoroughly examine your bag and decide whether it’s time to replace it or not. If so, you might want to consider visiting your local department store whenever your favorite makeup brand is having a “gift with purchase” promotion. This way, you could buy the items you were already inclined to repurchase, while also receiving a brand new makeup bag full of fun goodies. Sample-size products are not only a great way to try new things, but are also just the right size for women on the go.
