CARING FOR YOUR COSMETICS – AND KEEPING THEM ORGANISED!

The Organised Makeup Checklist

We all know you can spend a lot of money on cosmetics. Why is it then that they are often stored in a jumble in a drawer? Good storage for your makeup is an investment in looking good and feeling even better.  Follow the organised makeup checklist below – and put your best face forward every day.

Detect, discard, declutter

It may be your favourite red lippie, but if you’ve had it for 15 years it’s way past its use-by date and probably doesn’t deliver the same rich colour anyway. Kiss it goodbye. And while you’re at it, sort through your collection and toss out crumbly eyeshadows and mascara older than 3 months. If it’s old, it’s unhygienic. Simple.

Group and prioritise.

This is a quick to-do. Sort lipsticks, shadows, blushers and brushes into groups. It’s a great way to take stock of your stuff too. Make a note of what items you use the most, i.e., foundation, mascara, eyeliner, etc.

Clear out a shallow dresser drawer

If you don’t have the space for a makeup station, a drawer is a great solution and a real space-saver too – it can create gorgeous order out of your beauty products. Pick up the Clutter Buster Tray available in 2 sizes and remember to place items you use regularly up the front for quick access.

Get the makeup station worthy of a movie star

High glam makeup storage solutions aren’t strictly reserved for Hollywood’s elite.  Create your own hair AND makeup station using elfa Standalone Drawers with a custom benchtop. Then put items you use most right in front of you with the Allure Maxi Organiser and Clear Store Drawers. Professional Make-up Artist Kylie Ryan loves this solution and says this is how she keeps herself organised and efficient.  A good tip from a professional!

If you’re a true blue lipstick lover,

Display your collection with a Glam Organiser. There are lots of sizes to choose from and they look lovely on your dresser or bathroom benchtop. Grab a couple if you have a big lippie collection!

Behind-the-door makeup storage is clever!

No matter how small your living space, there’s no excuse for messy makeup. Hang a 22 Pocket Organiser and safely store your collection p and out of the way. Easy to see, even easier to use.

Browse your very own nail polish library

All your favourite colours at a glance? Instead of storing them in a makeup bag, we recommend using a Vinea Spice Rack for a pretty and practical solution.
