Let’s Talk!: Help! I’m Stuck in a Makeup Rut!

Picture this: A ton of unused makeup lying in our cupboards because..  

We find ourselves sticking to the same look and using the same products day in and day out! So how does one break the vicious cycle of “boring routine makeup” and change the look (for the better of course!) by incorporating some of the  unused products in the vanity? What would you do in order to incorporate atleast one or two of the unused makeup products in your everyday makeup routine? 
I”ll be doing a post on how I escape the makeup rut soon but before that tell me your ideas and views too! Let’s Talk!

      Thank you Tanmayee.. I guess being a makeup lover, some of us tend to hoard a lot of products but the trick lies in using them effectively πŸ™‚

      old darker unused shades as cheek stains. i have one particular pink nude frosted lipstick i use it as highlighter .. works excellent as creme cheekbone highlighter. old kajal sticks as eyeshadow base. i have one NYC bronzer matte which is light color to use as a bronzer but works well as eyebrow filler. looks super natural.
