I wear very little make-up but I do use a dusting of blush and some lipstick each day I go to work. I have streamlined to the extent that I own and use just one lipstick and one blush.
Today I noticed that both items are well-used and will be emptied at some point.
I found this blog post from 11th January 2016 in which I mentioned needing to buy some new make-up. 12 months later and these are still going strong. I expect that it will be about another 3 months before I feel the need to buy any more.
The packaging is plastic and will be rubbish which goes to landfill. While this is not a good thing, I feel that I am doing my bit by using very little make-up or beauty products. By buying the absolute minimum I am making a contribution to reducing the waste produced by the beauty industry.
