If your make up bag weighs more than your laptop, or if you spend more than 5 minutes rummaging for the right eyeliner every morning, then it's time for a serious make up bag detox.

Crumbling compacts, cracked lids, sticky lipglosses coated with fluff, our make up bags are subject to some of our darkest secrets.

Whilst their contents make us look polished, a peek inside the make up bag of many a groomed goddess will reveal enough cosmetic carnage to make Coco Chanel turn in her grave.

So with spring cleaning in mind, strip back to the bare essentials and revamp your make up bag. Decluttering your make up can help you to get more out of it (and will give you more time in the mornings too).

We've spoken to leading make up artists and those in the know, to find out how to detox your make up and slim line your selection.
