De-Clutter with These Storage Solutions
Everyone could use a little less clutter in their life. When it comes to your beauty products, however, keeping everything organized can be a difficult task. Even if you don’t have that much stuff, it can still be easy to lose things or just end up with a pile of makeup on your vanity. There are many items around your house you can use to create a place for your makeup so you don’t have to spend time searching for things every day. Check out these creative ways to store your beauty products and save space:
Use drawer dividers to organize your makeup or beauty products
Instead of having to rummage through your drawers every morning to find what you want, use drawer dividers to organize your products. This will save you time and keep everything looking much less cluttered. If you have an old utensil tray laying around, this works perfectly as a DIY divider for your makeup.
Put your makeup palettes in a magazine rack
Put a magazine rack on your table or vanity and use it to store larger items like makeup palettes. This essentially files your palettes, making it much easier to find the one you want to use and grab it without moving anything else.
Fill a vase with beads and use it to store your brushes
Use vases for a cute way to store your makeup brushes. You can also use things you probably have laying around your house like old pots, pencil holders, Mason jars or old candle holders. This will keep your brushes stored, but still visible to you can easily pick out the one you want to use. Make it unique by decorating the containers or labeling them.
Use a hanging shoe rack
Hang a shoe rack over your door and use it to store larger products or even hair styling tools. This is great for storing your products without taking up counter space.
Buy a lucite desk organizer for your makeup
These organizers are clear so you can see everything that is stored inside. They are also made specifically to hold makeup and come in many shapes and sizes. Try one that holds only lipsticks or one that has drawer space for other products.
Use a pencil box
Use an old pencil box to store eyeliner, lip liner, brushes or whatever else you can fit in it. This can easily be put into a drawer for storage, but is also easy to move around if you want to bring take makeup somewhere with you.
Display your makeup on a cake plate or cupcake tray
If you don’t want to worry about digging through your makeup, or you just want to put your impressive makeup and beauty collection on display, consider using a cake plate or cupcake try. This might take up a little more space on your desk or vanity, but can be a cute, decorative way to organize things. Try a tiered cake plate for even more storage space.
