There are lots of ways to organize makeup, and boy do they come in handy. For instance, do you ever get overwhelmed with your vast array of beauty products and want some guidance on how to organize makeup the fast and easy way? I know it can seem overwhelming to sort out all of your makeup and tools, but Ive got 7 easy ways on how to organize makeup that will have your vanity or bathroom looking like you hired a professional organizer!
1. Assess The Situation
The first step in learning how to organize makeup is to gather all of your beauty products and lay them out. It might seem like a monumental task at first, but it has to be done! Its very likely that you have expired, broken and useless makeup or makeup you havent used in ages that you can toss and remove from the equation. That should make the entire process much more doable! If you have doubles of makeup that you havent used, give it away or trade with friends!
2. Divide And Conquer
Now that youve completed the hardest step in how to organize makeup, divide up the products according to type. Corral all of your lip glosses, blushes, eye shadows, powders, etc. and put them into separate piles to make it easier to decide where and how you will store them. If youre like me, youll probably be amazed at the number products you have in one makeup category!
3. Save Your Favorites
While youre checking out these techniques on how to consolidate your makeup, keep in mind that you dont have toss it all. If you have a collection of lipsticks or eye shadows that you love but are almost used up, get an empty palette and depot your makeup so you can keep using them and avoid buying a new one. Having a palette is an economical and stylish way to organize your makeup and you can keep all of your favorites in one place!
4. Keep em Separated
While youre going over this list on ways to store your makeup make sure your makeup brushes are kept separate from your makeup in their own container. Your brushes are a vital part of the makeup application process so make sure you take good care of them! This is also a great time to clean your brushes and determine what brushes you need and dont need anymore. Make sure you continue to wash your brushes on a regular basis too!
5. Stash Your Makeup Stash
When looking for ideas on how to organize makeup, ensure that your makeup storage doesnt end up anywhere near the sun and steam. No matter how pretty the packaging is, avoid storing your makeup on your bathroom counter or near a window to prolong the life of your treasured beauty products! I know its fun to display your makeup so feel free, just make sure its either put away in a drawer if its in the bathroom or stored somewhere cool and dark for the most part.
6. Keep Products Visible
So I just finished saying that the best way to organize makeup is to keep them ir away from the elements, but its also important to keep your makeup visible or your mornings will be full of frustration! Theres nothing worse than fumbling to find a specific product or color when youre in a rush, so be sure you keep your makeup somewhere readily accessible and visible so you dont end up creating a mess looking for a certain color.
7. Think outside The Box
In deciding on how to organize makeup, dont be afraid to get those creative juices flowing and think outside the makeup box! You dont have to go the traditional route and use a train case or trays, there are tons of fun ways to display and store your makeup. Use a lazy Susan, plates, bowls, or glasses for an easy way to display makeup. If youre looking for a DIY project, create a frame and attach magnets or Velcro to the back of makeup to create a board to beautifully display and organize!
