According to Good Housekeeping, in 2015 the average woman owned about 40 makeup products. This number, which has likely increased with the boom of the beauty industry, does not include skincare, haircare, or other personal care products. With the new year quickly approaching there is no better time to go through our makeup bags and get rid of products that aren’t used regularly or are expired. Then what? These are the seven best products to streamline your makeup bag with for a full-face look that’s appropriate for any occasion.
