Remember that time when you were in a hurry and accidentally used an eyeliner to fill in your brows?
If this has happened to you then it might be time for some Spring Cleaning. Every time I get home from a trip I am always in the mood to organize, so there is no better time like Spring to organize all your beauty products. This is a perfect opportunity to get rid of all the unused and unloved products that have been taking up space. Here are some great tips to help you in organize all your beauty products.
CREATE YOUR “ESSENTIALS” TRAY
This, of course, depends on how large your makeup collection is. If you’re anything like me and have A LOT of makeup, do what I do and keep all of your essentials and daily staples in one tray or a big makeup bag. This way, you’ll have your most-used and loved products stored in one place where they’re easily accessible. I also keep a separate little basked for products I’m testing out for reviews- this is a big help.
STORE AWAY WHATEVER YOU DON’T USE
Go through your stash and store away whatever you don’t use on regular basis. Even if your makeup collection isn’t extensive, you’d be surprised how many products just sit in your beauty drawer, not being used. I also have a few “backup” products- like an extra bottle of my favorite foundation in my summer shade, or my favorite mascara- I store those away too.
USE DRAWERS WITH DIVIDERS
Using dividers is a perfect solution for keeping products together. I keep my makeup organized by category: concealer, bronzers, blushes, etc. If you don’t have drawers then I highly recommend using one of the many makeup organizers out there. I personally love MUJI, but there are many others out there that would work. Try places like Michaels and Home Sense.
USE CANDLE JARS
This is something we all do, isn’t it? I probably have about 10 of these and use each one to store different things- empty candle jars are perfect for storing mascaras, lip liners, eyeliners, eye pencils and makeup brushes.
KEEP THE NAMES VISIBLE
When it comes to lipsticks, especially ones that are packed like MAC, where you can’t see the color until u remove the cap- storing them upside down is something that really helps me out. This is a huge time-saver since it lets you find the shade you need quicker, without having to rummage through your entire collection.
PUT EVERYTHING BACK IN ITS PLACE
This is a MUST!! I still struggle with this (my beauty drawers can get REALY messy at times) but putting everything back in its place right away will help you stay organized.
When it comes to storing things like nail polishes, base and top coats, etc. keep in my mind that they need to be stored in a dry and cool place, so avoid storing them in your bathroom.
Hope you guys have as much fun as I did organizing all your beauty products, it may take some time and patience but put on some music and have some fun, you will feel great knowing everything has its place.
