Sometimes even though you think you have a space pretty darn organized you’ll find that it’s just not functioning the way it should. Over time things start piling up or looking cluttered. That’s when you know it’s time to reevaluate your organizing system. In simple terms, things look messy and it’s time to fix them. This is what happened on my bathroom counter with my makeup area. Let me show you what I mean.
DIY Organizer Series Lesson 9: Makeup
At first glance you may be thinking this really isn’t a big deal or a mess. However I disagree. I love having all of my stuff put away after I use it so I bought this small caddy awhile back thinking to myself it would be big enough. But then I found Ipsy! If you haven’t heard of Ipsy it’s a company that you subscribe to for $10 a month and them you get a small bag with all kinds of goodies mailed to you.
I happened to be in the makeup section at Target and I came across just what I needed, a larger storage caddy.
Once I had the caddy home I went through my makeup in about five minutes.
Here are the steps:
1.) Toss any old, expired, broken containers including lotions or skin creams.
2.) Group like with like and only leave out what you wear on a daily basis for your caddy. Other special makeup can be stored in a drawer or elsewhere for special occasions.
Pretty simple right? Look how much better it looks. Plus I can give my counters a daily wipe down now.
I would love to know any makeup organizing secrets you have!
I’m especially jealous of those of you that have a makeup drawer!
