I've been experimenting with makeup since very young. At first it was when no one was home but as the years progressed I was able to sporadically go out into the world and tried my hand at blending in with the general public. Afterwards, everything would go into the bin.My use of cosmetics today is sparse and judicious and the palette has been tried and tested over time. The lip colour in the photo below is safely stashed in my everyday purse although it hasn't seen much use in the era of masks.
We learn to find our own identities and with it the clothing and the makeup that reflects who we are inside. It is interesting to note that over time it has become increasingly unimportant to have variety but instead rely on those elements which best reflect who we are. I think this is why both my closet and cosmetic case have become increasingly sparse over time.
