Makeup and Beauty Trends for Winter

If you put on makeup as part of your daily routine and sometimes find yourself spending more time looking for the makeup you want, than the actual time you spend applying your make up, it is time to organize your makeup kit. So the very first of the makeup beauty tips is: get organized.

Here are the steps you can follow to put together a Professional Makeup Kit:

1. Allot time to work on this project and focus on its completion. Look for a large working area where you can spread out all your makeup and organize whatever you have.

2. Put out all your makeup and skin care products and go through them. Throw away anything that is broken, and old that may have collected bacteria. If the makeup has separated or flaked, looks old and the applicators are dirty, these can cause irritations or infections and need to be disposed.

The first rule is, if you cannot even remember how long ago the item was purchased or given to you, throw it away. Use these guidelines to determine how long you should keep your makeup before disposing it.

* Face Powders with brushes or sponges in contact with the product
* Cream or pancake foundations
* Eye bases, creams or eye foundations
* Mascara
* Cream eye shadows
* Liquid Eyeliners
* Any other cream or gel based item for the eyes

One Year
* Moisturizers
* Liquid foundations
* Tubed concealers used on the face that do not have applicators

As needed
* Pencil eyeliners that have not hardened or dried up
* Cake and powder eye shadows and blushes
* Bronzers

3. Group the items that you can still use together according to the following categories.

* Foundation applied on the skin before other products, to even the skin tone
* Concealer used to hide eye bags, blemishes, and unwanted facial marks
* Blush that adds dimension to your face and a younger look
* Eye Shadow appropriate to your skin tone and highlights your eye features
* Eyeliner for your eyelids and eyelash line below your eyes
* Powders used to set the foundation applied and extend its wearing
* Lipstick and Lip Gloss that can be easily coordinated with other products
* Bronzer used to add additional color to your face if you like a tan effect

4. Classify your make up items into those that you use every day. If you do not wear the makeup everyday, organize separate kits for your costume, formal, and special occasion makeup. Group the items in piles according to: makeup brush kit

* Daily wear
* Place makeup items that have colors that easily match almost anything you wear daily. Keep the more simple and light weight items.
* Lipstick and eye shadow colors should be neutral and complimentary.

* Skin care
* Makeup removers, moisturizers, sunscreens, serums, acne treatments, including cotton balls, and q-tips fall in this pile.
* Skin care items are useful if you often travel, play sports or do not put on make up the whole day. Save on space by buying pre-moistened facial cleansing cloths.

* Special occasion
* Makeup with more dramatic or infrequently used colors, shimmer powder, eye shadow with exotic and dramatic colors, false eyelashes you rarely wear, products purchased to match special outfits, or wild colors used only during Halloween.
