Keeping Makeup Organized
Keeping makeup and cosmetics organized can be quite a challenge depending on your collection. If you have a cosmetic area that needs an overhaul, here are some tips to get things organized.
Start with a thorough purge. Makeup has a lifespan and it’s important to eliminate expired items. Our makeup expiration guide is a good general guideline for how long to keep items, also refer to each brand’s guidelines as well.
Once you’ve done a thorough purge of expired makeup and items you’re no longer using, it’s time to start organizing. consider the storage space you have.
We love to use Linus drawer organizers to keep like items together and neatly organized in the drawers, cabinets or on shelves. They are terrific organizers that are clear, come in different sizes and depths, and also have a non slip bottom. If you have a medicine cabinet used for makeup storage, the small cube organizers are great labeled and sitting on the shelves. We also like Magnapods. They can stick to the cabinet door and make items super accessible. You have to watch out that they don’t get in the way of the shelf or other items in the cabinet, but if used properly, they can make storage and organization easy.
