Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog! It is currently Wednesday as I am writing this. It is a beautiful day outside, sunny, warm, with a slight breeze. It’s actually 77 degrees outside right now, so that is amazing. I love, love, love warm weather!
Anyway, today I’m going to be taking about beauty organization. Now, even though I love makeup and skincare, I don’t really have that much of it. I have enough to do a full face, but that’s about it. Makeup is expensive. Period. I am saving up a bit of money right now. Maybe sometime in the future, I’ll have more. I can’t do as many different things with makeup, but this does leave me with less to store. Today, I will show you a few ways to organize all of your beauty tools and products, including the things I use. I will also rate each product and provide a link to where you can buy it.
If you’re looking for something to store everything in one place and are willing to pay a bit more for it, his is the Sanipoe 360 Rotating Makeup Organizer, DIY Adjustable Makeup Carousel. You can get it from Amazon for about $24. I used to use this to store my makeup, and it worked so well. It is kind of big, so you have to have at least a two foot clearance. But if you’re someone like me, with either very little makeup or you want to store your everyday makeup separate from special occasion makeup, this is the perfect solution. With this organizer, you can adjust all the shelves. It’s washable, durable, and it turns! The only thing that I don’t like about it is that it’s easy for weird shaped products such as lipstick or mascaras to fall out when spinning.
This is definitely on the extremely expensive side. However, if you’re looking for the ultimate skin care storage unit, this is it. Say hello to The Skin Fridge. Skin care products are always better applied cold and this mini refrigerator keeps it cold for you. With two shelves and a pocket in the door, it has plenty of storage. I have never used this before, partly because I don’t have room for it, and also because it is WAY too expensive for me. However, I have seen user reviews, and it seems to me that just about everybody who’s bought this has loved it.
If you’re looking for something cheap, this is for you. These are small, rectangular, stackable, clear drawers that will fit 3-6 products in each one, depending on the size. I am currently using six of these to store some of my “occasional” makeup. You can get them at the Dollar Tree for $1 each. The only thing that isn’t ideal with these drawers is that sometimes as you are trying to pull the drawer out, but then you kind of get the whole thing. Even though that happens, as long as you have something on top of them you are fine and they’re great. I just have a clear plastic tray on top, holding some of my smaller eyeshadow palettes, lotion, and other things that wouldn’t fit elsewear.
This is probably one of the easiest ways to store some of your makeup. Just get any bag and put all of your everyday makeup in it. I do this, and it’s super convenient. Every time you’re traveling or on the road, you don’t have to worry about packing your makeup. All you have to do it put your makeup bag in the car and go! If you can’t tell, this is my favorite method. However, I would not put all of your makeup in a bag, just your everyday products and favorites.
