I’ve been meaning to do this post since Spring when I saw a few bloggers whom I adore showcased their seasonal makeup selections and I loved reading their choices. But because I have the organization skills of an ogre, Spring and Summer have come and gone and only now have I managed to put this post together.
Better late than never, eh?
I have a really bad habit of having tons of product out in my rotation and only using half of the amount while the rest just take up space and collect dust. And this time I vowed to change that bad habit hence the minimal amount of products that are featured in this post.
Whether I will be able to stick to these few products for the next few months, frankly I don’t know as I easily get bored but at least my makeup shelves will be less cluttered. And most importantly, maybe I can finally finish or hit pan on something.
Be forewarned that the following pictures will make most bloggers cringe as I was in the mood of ‘ermahgaddd, I have 5 minutes before Little Tyke wakes up from his nap!!!‘ so my apologies for the obvious lack of effort.

Hopefully I’ll manage to be disciplined in using only these few products and maybe, just maybe be done with one product by the end of Autumn. I also plan to do an update post to show my progress with these products at the end of the season and/if/or I cheated a wee bit. Bear in mind that there will be additions of other products along the way, PR samples; the upcoming Sephora sale, etc but I will include the new additions in another post or feature them on my Instagram (here
