time to get physical –and break a sweat by cleaning and organizing!!!
I’m going to disclaimer this right now…I don’t own a whole bunch. I’m not one that has 10 different shades of blush and lipstick. I find one I like and I wear it until they discontinue it.
but still…my Makeup is a mess. I have some from college. that I don’t wear…but I keep it in case I ever want to wear blue eyeshadow again.
okay. first thing first will all good organizing…time to toss what you don’t need/use/want. I get close to being done with my mascara…so I buy new mascara…and my almost empty tube gets forgotten about…end result: 6 tubes of mascara!
I keep all my old containers and upcycle them–they make great play makeup for the girls. When they were really little I dug out the remaining shadow and poured nailpolish in it to dry. Looks just like makeup, without any mess!!!
If you have broken makeup…don’t worry…it’s fixable!
and apparently makeup has expiration dates….(who knew?)
now I also a great time to clean out your brushes..which I never do. This one is using ingredients you have around the house!!!
alright…let’s get organizing them! I actually put mine in a basket. Real official right? My husband works nights 50% of the time so when I have to get ready and he’s sleeping…I like to take it into the other bathroom. So I need something that transports easy.
How about using a hanging jewelry organizer
amazon has great clear organizers…love the look of this one.
or this one
How about a magnetic version
We have two of these organizers. One has beads. and one is in the garage with nails and washers and anchors. But I didn’t think to put MAKEUP in it!
how about a utensil holder?
Using some fun cookie jars
This is perfect if you have no counter space (ie…your house builder was a man!)
Love this inside the cabinet organizers
did you know that tool sets come in pink! and different sizes! love it! I actually have my art supplies in an old tool box!!! (or a tackle box would work!)
this portable system is AWESOME!
Save some old boxes to use as organizers
Make some dividers for the drawer!
get a pretty jar and fill it up to store your brushes
Add some fun vinyl to keep yourself organized
and check out this clear top vanity!
and of course you can always fall back on the old caboodle!
