This post may contain affiliate links let's get organized!

time to get physical –and break a sweat by cleaning and organizing!!!

This week is all about the makeup!
let's get organized makeup edition

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! 25-ingenious-ways-to-store-your-makeup

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.

This makeup hanger is cute and easy:
