We would trade a lot of things to press snooze just one more time—sadly, our polished makeup look is usually one of them (hello, clearly-not-purposely smudged liner). But that doesn’t have to be the case. No, with just a few simple changes, you can shave off precious, precious time in your morning beauty routine. Curious? Keep scrolling for four simple tricks to streamline your morning routine!
Add Coffee Beans to an Empty Jar
If you spend way too much time digging through your extensive brush collection in the morning, try storing them upright in an empty vase or container…filled with coffee beans. The coffee beans will allow them to stand upright without leaning into each other (and make them easier to see), not to mention jolt your senses awake in the a.m.
Keep Only the Essentials in Sight
You’re a makeup hoarder—we get it (we’re totally guilty too). But you’re spending way too much time rifling through all your beautiful palettes, tubes, and lipsticks in the morning. Instead, keep only your daily essentials in clear sight so you don’t get distracted (we like these chic, clear makeup holders from MAC). Store the rest of your makeup outside your bathroom in a movable drawer unit, so you can migrate them if necessary.
Separate Them Using a Kitchen Utensil Tray
Your mascaras, lip glosses, brushes, and even hair products can be organized the same way you organize your spoon, forks, and knives—and using the same tool. This option is great for anyone who stores their makeup in their drawers!
Organize Them With Ice Cube Trays
This one is pretty self-explanatory. Keep all your array of iridescent, glittery, shimmery, and matte eye shadows in an easily-accessible and selectable manner by placing them into sleek, silver ice cube trays. We guarantee you’ll use more of your shadows if you organize them this way, too (mainly because you can actually, well, see them).
