Lights, Camera… It’s Make-Up Organizing in Action!
Most of us have a daily beauty routine – it is a part of most of our lives. Whether you simply wash and moisturize or have a full on make-up studio. We all want to feel and look put together and having an organized system for getting there makes it an enjoyable and productive process. So, how do you organized make-up? Here are a few suggestions:
To organize your makeup (or anything), you first need space. Either find or create a space that works best for your home, schedule and… good lighting. Bathrooms and bedrooms are probably your best spot.
Go through the make-up you currently have and put like things into groups. Throw away any make-up that is more than a year old (old make-up builds bacteria). Having categorizes like blush, shadows and liners will help you get organized. On to the next step…
Now that you have a space (and you know what you have to put in it), we need to decide how you are going to store your make-up. Ask yourself a couple of questions:
- Do you like standing up or sitting down while you do make-up?
- Do you like to have your make-up in portable or stationary containers?
- Do I want to have it right at hand or can it be stored in a cabinet or a drawer?
Then, you are ready to decide on a container, depending on the space and amount of make-up that you have. You’re your house first as you may already something you can repurpose. Here are some options:
- Acrylic Organizer or Acrylic Make-up Organizer
- Bead Organizer and Convenient Carry Case
- Drawer Dividers
- Pencil Boxes
- Utensil Tray
- Hanging Shoe Organizer (perfect for the back of a door) or Hanging Jewelry Organizer
- Desk File Organizer
- Wire Magazine Rack for larger items
- Hairdryer & Curling Iron Holder
To maintain an organized system that will work for you, keep like things grouped so you won’t soon have a cluttered mess.
Before you know it, you’ll be ready for lights – camera – action! To see a great example of an organized make-up space, visit A Bowl Full of Lemons and let us know what creative solutions you come up with! We’d love to hear from you.
