It's easy to accumulate a museum-worthy product collection if you're a beauty junkie. What's not so easy? Keeping that ever-expanding collection neatly organised. Inevitably, your lipsticks get misplaced and your eye shadows haphazardly tossed in the nearest bag. In a word: clutter. If your bathroom looks like the aftermath of a Sephora explosion, you need to try these makeup organisation tips. Consider your clutter conquered.
Keep reading to see seven organisation tips to help you whip your bathroom back into shape.
One glance at Pinterest inspiration boards tells us that see-through shelving is a popular way of storing makeup. We love GlamBoxes' Glam Petite Makeup organizer ($199); the drawers are deep enough to stash tons of products, and the open top allows for your very own Pinterest-worthy display of perfume and makeup brushes.
Sort out items that you use every day, and separate them from the rest of your makeup to streamline your routine. If you're typically rushed in the morning, it's helpful to make the most of your drawer space with dividers, like the Ikea Godmorgon Box ($18). That way, you can put all your essentials back in their correct place without a thought. Just think of all the time you'll save not frantically digging through your makeup bags for mascara.
We're not knocking the country-chic décor staple, but we think empty candleholders are poised to take the countertop space of mason jars. Burn the rest of those candles you've been saving, and use them to store your brushes. You've already got the materials, and your room will smell oh-so-pretty as part of the process.
Gather all those pretty, unused boxes and pails you've been hoarding because you swore someday you'd have a use for them. That day is today. Colorful tape and handwritten labels add a personalized touch.
Even after you spend all this time organizing, there's no way every product is going to be put back where it belongs every time. Keep a small, unlabeled bin handy for those times, and put everything back in its proper place weekly.
Do you have beauty products that are pretty to look at, but rarely get used? (Guilty.) Instead of relegating them to some storage box, set up a vanity tray so they can be on display without contributing to clutter.
