Are you a product junkie? If so, don’t worry – you aren’t alone. The love for makeup and all types of wellness products is understandable.
Unfortunately, if you love your products, you may have a bit of a mess on your hands from time to time. Don’t worry, we can help.
Keep reading to learn some helpful tips on how to organize your makeup (and keep it organized) once and for all.
- Purchase a Vanity
The right vanity offers several benefits. It will make doing your makeup and hair easier and is the perfect option for getting all your products organized.
You can even find a special spot for her vanity makeup organizer to get things in better order.
Having a specific, dedicated area for your makeup and products means you can lay everything out and see it at a glance. This makes getting ready easier and something you can do in less time. Just think about how much time you waste trying to find a specific product.
You can find vanities with a ton of drawers and storage compartments, too. This helps ensure everything has a “proper” place.
- Use Drawer Organizers
Using drawer organizers can help you group like products together. They can also ensure your products don’t roll around or get damaged when the drawer is open and closed.
Drawer openers are a great way to get organized because they let you stack your products vertically. This can help you save space.
Also, with many versions, you can purchase additional pieces. This means your storage will grow as your product collection grows.
- Purchase Clear Organizers
You can find organizers in all shapes, sizes, and colors. However, clear is a great option because you can see the products through them.
If you can see it, then you are more likely to use it. If you can’t see it, there’s a good chance you won’t touch it, and the product will go bad.
If you are in a hurry or stressed with what you have to do during the day, you want to be able to grab and go. The last thing you want is to have to dig through seemingly endless piles of products to find what you need.
Clear organizers can be extremely beneficial for this. Mason jars come in different sizes and are great for organizing all your smaller items.
Pro Tip: Make sure you store your cosmetics in a humidity and temperature-controlled location. Don’t put your items in a bathroom that is poorly ventilated or in the direct sun. These things can impact the effectiveness and quality of the product and reduce the shelf life.
- Install a Mirror with a Shelf
To help ensure your favorite items don’t get lost in the shuffle, install a mirror with a shelf on it. This will let you put your everyday products on the mirror shelf.
You can make the mirror work for you by making this the go-to location for the products that you have to have daily. Also, this type of mirror makes it easy for touch-ups as you head out the door.
- Use an Extended Shower Caddy
Shower caddies are not just for the shower. With an adjustable caddy, you have all the space you need for your favorite cleansing products.
However, you can also use these in the shower for your cleansers, scrubs, hair products, body washes, and more. You can take the organization to the next level by categorizing what you put on each shelf.
If you want something that’s more permanent, consider mounting acrylic or stone corner shelves using an epoxy adhesive.
- Use a Holder for Your Brushes
Keeping your brushes together and in a central location is an ongoing struggle. They can easily pile-up, get dirty, and there is always an issue of losing track of one or two.
To help prevent this, choose a holder that has several different compartments. By doing this, you can keep your face, lip, and eye brushes completely separate.
Pro Tip: To help avoid contamination, try covering the brushes when you aren’t using them. This is especially important if they are being stored in your bathroom or a particularly dusty room.
- Hang-Up Your Extra and Backup Products
If you are like most people, you probably have a few backup items ready to go. While this peace of mind is important, it can become a cluttered mess if you aren’t careful about how they are stored.
With these items, it is a good idea to use an over-the-door storage rack. With this, you can hang up these extras, which lets you see them and reminds you of when it is time to purchase certain things again.
- Use a Sponge Stand for Makeup Sponges
Did you know your makeup sponges can quickly become a breeding ground for bacteria and germs? This is especially true if they are not stored and cleaned properly.
To avoid this, purchase a sponge stand. These help dry your sponges efficiently and ensure they don’t get contaminated by touching other surfaces.
- Label Your Drawers
As a beauty product junkie, you know all the drawers can look the same and be confusing after a while. This is why labeling can be so helpful.
You can make simple labels that let you know what is in each drawer. You can even sort things by brand if that is your preference.
