I'm willing to bet that at the bottom of last season's purse or tucked away in the back of your vanity drawer, there's a graveyard of makeup that leaves you feeling in you've created a personalized hot-mess makeup line. While it's not uncommon for our half-used lipsticks and summer foundations to fall by the wayside in favor of shiny, newly purchased versions, it is far too common for us to abandon these products altogether — even if they used to be among our most loved.
Instead of pitching these forgotten favorites into the nearest trash can, why not bring them back out into the limelight? Track everything down by checking old purses, suitcases, and storage drawers, then organize the products into Ziploc® brand accessory bags. We love ‘em because they’re so much more durable than your average plastic bag, they zip right up (so no spills), they’ve got a chic aesthetic, and they’re easy to find inside your purse.
Once everything has a new home in a place where you'll actually see it, work your rediscovered faves back into your everyday look, or try one of these expert-approved tips for giving them a whole new identity.
