Five simple ways to give your messy make-up collection a makeover | The Sun

GIVE your messy make-up ­collection an easy makeover.

With these simple tips and tidy buys your unruly pots and pallets can get a whole new look.

BEAUTY BLITZ: The first step to making sense of your make-up collection is to have a clear out.

Anything broken, unused, out of date, discoloured or lacking a lid must go.

Look out for the open-lid symbol that tells you how long a product will last once opened.

ORDER, ORDER: Simple storage can bring order to an over­flowing make-up collection.

CLEAN SWEEP: A weekly wash should stop your brushes becoming a breeding ground for bacteria.
