When you are greeted by a giant and unruly mess of beauty products upon opening your drawer in the morning, you know it’s time to get organized. Perhaps you are lacking space or even the slightest idea of how to make that happen. At Modernize, we believe that sometimes the best solutions are creative ones, even when it comes to organizing your makeup…okay, especially when it comes to organizing your makeup. Spice Racks It’s not a complete surprise that many kitchen organization tools also work well in the bathroom, and spice racks are a really great example of this. If you struggle with not having enough room in your bathroom cabinets or have a pedestal sink with just enough space for a bar of soap, you will most definitely benefit from using a spice rack for storage instead. Simply hang one or two spice racks up on the wall and use them to hold small and unruly makeup and body products. It will help declutter your space.
Makeup Brush Storage
The ever popular Mason jar has other kinds of alternative uses than just holding a pretty bouquet of flowers. For a simple and effective way to organize your makeup brushes and wands, fill up the jar with dry coffee beans, uncooked beans, rice, or pretty stones and place your tools inside. Strategically arrange them so that it almost starts to look like a fresh cut bunch of flowers. For an even easier solution for makeup brush storage, use a fun pencil cup. We love the brocade pencil cup from Design Ideas (click here to purchase) and so does E! news TV personality Ali Fedotowsky. The delicate pattern is classic.
For another clever way to utilize unused wall space, creating a magnet board for makeup organization and storage will eliminate the desperate attempt to find the right place for everything. Get really creative and find a magnet board to frame yourself, or find a pre-made version in-store. Attach magnets to the back of your makeup for quick and easy organization. Add coordinating magnetic bins to store lip glosses, makeup brushes and other smaller tools that you use on a daily basis.
Product needed: Design Ideas magnetic board and coordinating magnetic bins, available from The Container Store.
3-Drawer Desk Organizer
In the same way that it organizes your pencils, erasers, and notepads, a 3-drawer desk organizer will work wonders for your personal care products. Store bigger and bulkier items in one drawer and other smaller or easily lost items in another to keep track. The desk organizer is also great for storing just about any beauty product you need, be it nail polish, trimming scissors, or other tools of the trade that threaten to wreak havoc on your newly organized space.
An added bonus? The Digit desk units from Design Ideas stack, allowing you to create vertical storage when you are short on space. Available in a variety of colors and sizes, these stacking desk organizers will quickly become a favorite.
Sometimes simple is best. Don’t have a lot of makeup, lotions, or potions? Or maybe you’d rather just keep it low-key? Pick a simple and elegant tray to store your things on a desk, dresser, or bathroom surface that adds a little bit of character and style to your space. Using a tray for your products also works well if you have beautiful makeup cases and containers that are worth showing off.
We love the look of the Carbaugh tray from Design Ideas (click here to purchase from Design Ideas). Made of resin with a sleek marble-inspired finish, this tray is undeniably elegant.
