Refresh Your Make Up Bag

Girls in the Eye of Horus HQ have been sharing tips and tricks for refreshing makeup bags and feeling free of our makeup hoarding ways, and we at John And Ginger wanted to share them all with you!

Cleansing your makeup bag.

Cleaning, for most of us is a part of every day life. We clean our homes, our bodies, our clothes. We clean our cars, our pets and even our inner minds. One thing that can get neglected often is our poor make up bag. It can be a confronting hoard of expired products, lost lids, loose powder, but we often put our best face on and leave it for another day.

Today is the day

1. Throw out old products.

We all know what it looks like in there. Open that bag and you are thrown into a dimension of lid less cosmetics, loose powders and even expired products. Refreshing your eye makeup regularly is probably the most important product to keep on top of as they can attract bacteria that could potentially irritate or even harm your eyes. The Ancient Egyptians used makeup to protect their eyes, we do not want to be using expired cosmetics and damaging them.

2. Clean everything EVEN your makeup bag.

Wash ALL of those brushes, wipe down those bottles, and help them be beautiful like they help you. We recommend using warm water and tea tree oil as it has natural disinfecting properties, this will cleanse the surfaces without having to use any nasty chemicals.

Your makeup bag is the keeper of all of your beauty secrets, keeping it healthy is absolutely part of your beauty routine.

3. Finally, buying NEW makeup (the fun part!)

This is our favourite part. When restocking what you have lost, we recommend buying products you can use in many ways and for many occasions. Multipurpose products save space as well as encourage us to use them more!
