How to Create a Capsule Makeup Collection + Giveaway!
How to Create a Capsule Makeup Collection
I wear a capsule wardrobe and most of my life and home is tightly curated.
The idea is to have items you love and wear often. Here is my take on a capsule makeup collection.
This would also be a good starting point for those who want to start wearing makeup. I curated this capsule makeup collection thinking about how to fit in a lot of people and also for people I think would benefit most from it. Those working in an office setting, those who are students, parents, etc who don't have a ton of time before running out the door in the morning.
I did select a highlight and blush I wouldn't chose if this was a for “Rebecca” capsule, but since I will be doing a giveaway with the products I wanted to have colors that would fit more skin tones. If I was making my own I would have selected a cooler pink blush and a lighter highlight.
The first two looks I created are super quick and easy to apply. You will also have two tutorials for "night out" looks or for those that want to wear a heavier makeup style or that have a bit more time to get ready. I am also going to include one more bold and atypical look for those that want to stand out more.
If you guys like this series I would love to do another with a different style in mind. Maybe for color lovers, or for more mature skin, or for bold looks,. Let me know in the comments what you would like to see!

Why would you create a Capsule Makeup Collection
A great thing about a capsule, whether it's makeup or your closet. Is that you'll learn to multi task! If you have a limited amount of product to work with you'll learn to use it in a few ways. This is great cause you can own less and save money and produce less waste. It also lets you invest into products that preform really well, rather than having a lot of lower quality items for the same price.
A capsule is also great for those with less time, maybe your a student, a mom, working early hours. If you have less choices, it'll make getting ready faster. For my closet, everything mixes and matches so I never have to try on two or more outfits to see if the pieces work together. This capsule makeup collection will work the same way.
It's also great for those starting out with makeup! You can get a good handle on the products, and have all items you'll use for quite a few looks. You can start out with a few items and add to your collection where you see fit. If I was starting from scratch I would start with something similar to this and then add a few bold pops of color items to fit my makeup style.
This could also be your go to for travel if you tend to over pack makeup, I know I do.

How to find products that work for your capsule makeup
Curation is the first step. You have to edit and decide if you want to rotate seasonally or not. For example, maybe you want a fresh faced look for spring/summer, but want to change over to something matte and dramatic for fall/winter.
With any capsule it's okay to have a few trendy items. I think adding in a few fun colored lipsticks or some fun liners would be a great addition to add more pizazz to your looks.
This is a great way to work through products and not waste them, try a product out, maybe you find out you love a cream blush, use it up and then you can invest in a higher end or another version of the product since you know you use it.
