Organizing Makeup: Where to Start?
Organizing makeup is probably at the same level of a daunting task as organizing your photos. There is just so much to go through and you feel like it will take forever.
Fear not, we are here to help!
Here are some super practical tips for organizing and decluttering your makeup, before you select the makeup organizer solution from our ideas:
- first things first – check all items that look old and worn out and throw them out!
- check used by dates on your remaining products and throw away any that have gone past! Most products should be used within 12 months of opening them, so if you had any makeup longer than that, it’s time to say goodbye
- divide your remaining makeup into categories – lipstick, foundation, brushes etc.
- go through each category and double-check that you don’t have any duplications, alternatively unused things that you don’t like anymore and won’t be using. You can donate these to friends.
- for the rest of the stuff, now it’s time to start thinking about practicalities – in which room or where do you apply your makeup? If it’s the bathroom, it would make sense to find a simple storage solution in there. If it’s your bedroom, perhaps you can allocate a small desk by the window to your makeup suppliers?
- take the environment into account – if you like your makeup displayed on the table, keep in mind that dust will gather there and things like your makeup brushes will absorb it.
- before you select from the makeup organizer ideas below, ask yourself how would you like to access your beauty supplies and how fast do you want to be able to put them away
Makeup Organizer Ideas: How to Choose Yours?
When choosing the right option for you from our makeup organizer ideas, there are a few things you should consider:
- do you want your items easy to see in see-through containers or do you prefer them to be hidden and your beauty counter to look neat?
- are you planning to store your beauty supplies inside a drawer or do you want to have them on display?
- are there any items that need special care and storage?
- how likely are you to continue using your chosen storage solution?
- do you prefer to throw things back quickly or to tidy in a dedicated place each time?
- how much space do you have allocated for your makeup storage?
- are you planning to expand your beauty supplies further?
All these questions will help you determine better storage and organization solutions for you, and eliminate the options that you might like but might not be totally practical for your case.
