A few years ago, I picked up the most gorgeous Yves Saint Laurent makeup palette. It was perfect for a New Year’s Eve party I was about to attend; inside were pink and berry lipglosses, shimmery white and eggplant eyeshadows dusted in gold. (Yes, big gold glitter. This was New Year’s Eve!) I used it that night and stashed it away, using it only once since the big party. I know the pretty items inside are past their expiration dates and the gold glitter doesn’t quite fit my lifestyle, but I can’t seem to get rid of it. Do you have a makeup bag full of products you can’t toss out, that don’t work for you? I want to know!
Email firstname.lastname@example.org a headshot of yourself AND a picture of the contents of your makeup bag.

If selected, the beauty team will help you organize your bag with the best new makeup for your routine. Include your name, age, occupation, daytime phone and email.
We also want to know:
How often do you wear makeup (daily, for events/nights out, only for special occasions)?
How much time do you usually spend putting on makeup?
What items do you tend to buy multiples of?
Your perfect makeup bag contains…
