War on Clutter: 17+ Genius Ways To Store Your Makeup

Hands up if your makeup is perfectly and neatly stored in a designated area of your desk or bathroom?

That’s not your case? You’re not alone.

Honestly, I can’t remember the last time I was looking for my lipstick without having to shuffle my way through an overfilled bag of makeup (and the occasional socks, shower gel and toy cars from my kid).

Head straight to your this weeks TO DO list and add this as a priority: have organized makeup storage that even a makeup artist would be proud of!

Here are few of my favorite picks from the web.

1. Frame it

Finding the right color of nail polish can be a task if you have to dig through an arm deep bag full of them. Why not treat your nail polish collection as something to be part of and put it proudly on the display.
