Clearing Out My Makeup Drawers | What Stays & What Goes | Pt. 2

If you didn't see my last post, I am sharing some of the makeup items I am keeping and giving away before moving in a few weeks.

This is my cheek drawer where I go for blush, bronzer and highlight. It is probably my favorite drawer as I get the most use out of these items and I get the most excited to mix up my morning makeup with these products.

What I am keeping:

Alamar Cosmetics Blush Trio - This blush trio is in my daily makeup bag so there was no way I could let go of it! I love having three options and being able to mix and match.

Jouer Highlight in Rose Quartz - This highlight makes my skin look wet and dewy and glowy and I am obsessed! It is definitely one of my favorites so it needed to stay.

BareMinerals Invisible Bronze Bronzer (discontinued!) - I am devastated! I went to find a link for y'all and I cannot find it anywhere...RIP beautiful bronzer.

Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso - An oldie but a goodie! This is a classic blush perfect for Spring and Summer with it's beautiful coral shimmer tones.

Glossier Haloscope Face Highlighter in Moonstone - This is my favorite highlight for no makeup-makeup days. I use this just on the cheekbones and nose for a bit of a glisten.

Milk Makeup Matte Bronzer in Baked - You know I am obsessed with this! It is so creamy and easy to use. I would not consider this matte on me as it gives a pretty natural sheen and that's why I like it!

Glossier Cloud Paint in Puff - Too pretty and amazing to giveaway! I used this everyday non-stop for months this Spring because I love it so much.

e.l.f. Blush in Pinktastic - Another classic! This is technically a blush but I use it as a highlight. It's inexpensive and gets the job done, I love it!

What I am giving away:

CoverFX Glitter Drops in Nova - I never used these and they're not practical for my everyday life.

Sephora Colorful Bronzer in Los Cabos - Beautiful bronzer but the shade just made me look a little gray.

Dose of Colors x Katy & Desi Highlighter in Fuego - I was so happy to support Katy x Desi in this collab but this shade is just too gold for me.

Too Faced Blush mini in Love Hangover - Love these blushes but do not reach for them enough.

PUR Sculptor Highlight & Contour Palette - I don't think I ever used this palette since receiving it in a Boxycharm box and I did not see myself using it often.

Benefit Cosmetics Watts Up Highlighter - Such a classic but not one I reach for hardly ever.

I am such a lover of makeup so I tend to hoard my goodies. But, I also love to gift items to people so giving away some of these products was a blast! I loved going through my drawer and basically playing with makeup for hours on end. If you haven't been through your collection in a while, I encourage you to do so! You will likely find old favorites and some items you didn't even know you kept.

Let me know what you end up keeping and what you end up tossing in the comments below!
