Create Your Own Capsule Makeup Collection

So I’m going to start this off with a practical suggestion on how you can trim down your makeup collection into a capsule that works, and when I say “you” I really mean “I”.
What is a capsule makeup collection anyway? It’s basically a workable little capsule of things you use everyday. So you don’t have to think about what to wear tomorrow and the next because you already have the basic items in one little capsule. The idea saves a lot of time putting on makeup and effort cleaning up your mess. Especially since I have a ton of lipstick collections and eyeshadow shades I never even get to use.
My thought process is to start with downsizing my personal kit. If you think this is hard, think again. Even for a makeup geek like me, I can already recall the many times I’ve given away unused makeup or makeup I don’t need anymore and we can start there. Sometimes we get too attached to our makeup collection we even find ways to fix broken items, in this case, forget about that and really pin down what you need.
Go through your kit and assess which ones you barely- if not never, use. Those that are really old, throw them away. Do not give them to people as they are harbingers of bacteria. Those that do not match your skin tone or personality but are clean and not expired, give them out.
Now that you’ve trimmed down your kit, pick your everyday staples. I’m thinking to create a capsule makeup collection for day to night wear and mini collections for each season. Another idea is to create an everyday capsule makeup kit and a separate glam collection for when I have to go to events.
I’m going to list down key pieces in my would be capsule collection to give you an idea, but take note that I don’t like wearing a lot of makeup so your staples and mine can very well be different. When I think of staples, I immediately think of these key pieces:
Everyday Capsule Makeup Collection:
1 mineral powder foundation
Matte Eyeshadow palette
3 color lipsticks (nude pink, rosey, red)
Lip and cheek tint
1 black liquid eyeliner
1 black pencil eyeliner
1 eyebrow pencil
1 lip balm
1 eyelash curler
And when I have my basic everyday capsule makeup collection, I’m thinking to create “mini” collections, things that I can add on to the basic capsule collection for specific events….
