Organizing your makeup can be very challenging when you don’t have the right tools and makeup storage containers available to you. When we run short of time and we leave our makeup and makeup accessories disorganized, creating that subsequent ‘perfect look’ can end up taking double the time it would if our makeup was organized neatly.
More so, when we keep our makeup in the correct place and in proper makeup containers, the quality and durability of the products are guaranteed for more time.
Also – did you know that if you keep your makeup products in your bathroom, they are exposed to heat and moisture which ruins your makeup? I’ll discuss this later on and also my tip on how to preserve the quality of your makeup.
It’s therefore important, for many reasons, not only for organization and time but also for longevity of your makeup products (and in turn, ensuring that ‘flawless’ look you work so hard to achieve) to organize and store your makeup properly.
Hope you find these tips helpful, if you have anything to add, please comment below!
Makeup Organization Tips
Less Is Best
Get rid of what you don’t want or use anymore. Throw away your expired makeup. Give or throw away what you don’t want anymore. You’ll have more space and you will be able to sort out all your products.
Keeping Makeup in the Bathroom or Bedroom?
Avoid leaving your makeup in the bathroom! The humidity prejudices the durability of the product and they will be damaged before their time. Always keep your beauty products in a dry and ventilated place. If you are like me and perfect that your beauty routine stays in the bathroom, ensure you buy good quality makeup storage containers that resist humidity from affecting your makeup, tools and brushes.
After throwing away expired makeup and giving away what you don’t want anymore, start organizing with makeup storage containers! Pick every product you have and find an organizer that meets your needs. Although buying makeup organizers might feel like a bit of an $ outlay, you, your makeup and your beautiful look will thank you for it later. Remember – makeup isn’t cheap either so it’s a wise idea to store it properly.
The best way to organize your makeup in each container you buy? Lay all them in a table or on the floor and sort by season, favorites, daily, special products. It will be easier to visualize what you have and follow your tips about sorting out makeup in each container.
Separate your makeup by usage or occasion
Do you have beauty products that you use every day? Try to organize your makeup in occasion or in groups, doing “kits” with daily products you use. Put in an easily accessible spot. It will be easier to visualize the makeup that you have when you organize and separate it.
Organize your basic or essential makeup products that you use on a daily basis, for example, powder, concealer, blush, lipstick and more in one small acrylic beauty organizer. If you have makeup products that you wear less frequent, also organize them in an separate acrylic storage, but keep them in a special place.
How to organize your makeup brushes
We all need them, and if you don’t, read my article about the makeup brushes every girl needs here. So if you are anything like me and have a lot of makeup brushes (I mean, who doesn’t?), don’t just jam your makeup brushes in a container with other makeup brushes; they need a home of their own.
Your makeup brushes should be stored in a separate makeup bag or my preference is to use acrylic makeup storage. Also, don’t forget to clean them at least once a week. With a weekly wash, you maintain the durability of the product. Keep the makeup cleaning products handy by placing them in an acrylic makeup storage container along side the brushes.
How to organize your makeup brushes? First, divide your brushes in brushes for eye and brushes for skin. You can fill your brush holder with pearls, little rocks and grains in order to keep your brushes held more securely and upright, plus it keep them looking stylish and super chic.
How to organize your lipsticks
Am I right by saying that almost every girl weakness is….lipsticks! How many do you have? Can you even count? I can’t – I’ve lost count. It just happens to be that every time I am out shopping or shopping online, I find an additional shade or gloss that I have to add to my never ending collection. Due to the amount of options we have nowadays and the amount we all seem to like to collect, it gets even harder to store them. Even more so, when you want to find that right shade, it takes forever to find it. Why? Your lipsticks and lip glosses aren’t stored or organized properly. When you organize those beautiful lip products, it becomes easier to find the one you want.
Some lipstick and lip gloss organization tips include, organizing them by brand, shades, seasons and by favorite/most used.
In both of the examples shown above, you can easily store your lipsticks or lip glosses and you will be able to quickly find the one you want. You can sort them in shades (eg. light pink, dark pink, red and different colors), brands or most used lipsticks in one place. Another idea is to arrange them vertically and you’ll be able to pick up the shade and the lipstick you want by the name. Both lipsticks holder are very simple but it’s also very practical.
