Do you have a boatload of beauty products? If so, you are not alone, but many of us don’t have a system for storing or displaying these precious items. Maybe your eyeshadow palettes are stuck in the lingerie drawer or pencils and tubes are haphazardly tossed about. Let our pros give you some tips on organizing your beauty products to keep your space clutter-free.
A Mirror With Shelf Space
This is a clever, all-in-one solution to consider. A mirror that comes with automatic shelf space becomes your go-to area for getting glam and ready. It is convenient and perfect for storing some of your faves before you head out the door.
You can have your foundation, blush, mascara, hairspray, brush, etc. right on the shelf as you look in the mirror to get beautiful.
A Left To Right Sequence
Here’s another smart tip that really makes sense once you try it. Our organization experts believe that placing your beauty products in the proper order can help tremendously.
For instance, time is of the essence, especially when you’re trying to get ready in the morning before work, school, or any other important schedule. To make life a lot easier, place the products you use first in a left-to-right sequence in the drawer.
If foundation is the first beauty product you use that would be the first item on your left to apply. Next in line is concealer, blush is third, mascara is fourth, and so on.
Remember to store the most-used beauty products from left to right.
Even if you’re lucky to have room for a small vanity table and chair, things can still get messy in the world of beauty. Professional makeup artists find that clear organizers made of acrylic are one way to find your stash of skincare and cosmetics.
The strategy is simple because you can see where the products are stored, so you don’t have to hunt around for that navy mascara or dark brown brow gel sitting in an opaque container, for example.
Mason jars are another cute idea for keeping storage transparent and holding your bathroom or vanity essentials.
By freeing space up on your vanity table, you’ll have more room for displaying your exquisite fragrance collection of perfume samples and decants.
Hanging Shoe Organizer
Don’t laugh because this is a brilliant idea for the woman who lacks space for storing her beauty bottles and tools. That’s right, ladies, a hanging shoe organizer can serve as an amazing solution for storing tons of makeup into their own clear storage spaces.
Most hanging shoe organizers feature 24 pockets, and that leaves plenty of room to store your products vertically for easy access. Just hang it on a standard door or closet rod. Best of all, no hardware is needed, and it’s ideal for keeping stuff off the limited counter space in your apartment, dorm room, or home.
Empty Candle Holders
If you’re a makeup junkie, then you probably collect a bunch of makeup tools, including all kinds of brushes. Take empty candle holders and use them to store your brushes upright.
It’s easy to misplace makeup brushes for the lips, eyeshadow, etc. Placing them in containers together will help you keep track of them.
The Dollar Tree sells an abundance of pretty containers from plastic to glass in all sorts of shades and sizes that can hold your skincare, cosmetics, and hair product items. All it takes is a little imagination to choose the right containers and make your space more organized and put together.
A Spring Cleaning
Before you even decide on what methods to use for organizing all your fabulous beauty products, our experts recommend doing a little spring cleaning.
Take the time to look at your stash, and toss out any expired products and/or formulas you don’t use or need. You’d be surprised how much room you can free up for creating a tidier-looking vanity area.
We all collect stuff, and often, we enjoy the beauty products we have but store them every which way. Organization is essential and not just for your wardrobe. Beauty products need a little “law and order.”
