How are we doing with the
It’s funny because I probably wear makeup less than three times per week yet makeup storage is the biggest bathroom organization concern. Girl problems. In my life, I’ve gone through so many phases when it comes to makeup. I’ve been an
That being said, I have a hoard of beauty products that’s been lurking under the sink for years. Some items I’ve probably had since college which is apparently no good anymore. In case you too have years old makeup sitting in a box under your sink here’s a quick guideline on makeup expiration.
Best Makeup Organization Tips
Toss out old makeup that is expired or that you no longer use.
I started by tossing out all the old makeup that I hadn’t even looked at since we moved into this house oh, three years ago. I decided to part with pretty much everything you see in the image above, keeping only things I use on a daily (every couple of days really) basis. I just kept my favorite items that are in my regular makeup routine. Because, why do I need 30 eyeshadows from when I was 22? It’s kind of funny the random things you hang on to, isn’t it? This challenge has required me to think hard about my relationship with things and how much stuff is really necessary.
Use clear makeup organizers
After setting aside the items I decided to keep, I organized them within these two organizers. The two drawer organizer holds items that aren’t necessarily used daily but I still love them like special occasion lip colors, eyeshadows, and blushes. The organizer on top (similar here) of the two-drawer is for my everyday items like my eyeshadow palette, makeup brushes, and compact. I’m a pretty simple girl as I mentioned so everything fits nicely here.
I like how compact this setup is on my vanity. It tucks nicely in the corner and it’s easily accessible without having multiple makeup bags all over the countertop. How do you organize and store your makeup products? I’d love to hear what works for you. I’d also love to know if you are like me and have anything in your makeup bag that’s years old. What’s the oldest piece of makeup you have? Let me know in the comments!
