Makeup Storage

1 Hour
I’ve been going through a lot of things lately. I’m trying to pare down what I have, and reorganizing what I keep. This time, it’s my make-up that I’m reorganizing & purging. And to help me get ready faster, I'm keeping my hair supplies, every day earrings & watches here too. It's a one stop shop for getting ready in a hurry!
Finished & Organized Storage
This is how it looked before the purge. Oh my! Such a mess.
I dumped all of the drawers & separated the makeup by type.
A bag of makeup that I don't use.
I washed the drawers in hot soapy (Dawn) water.
My foundation & blush drawer
The eyeshadow drawer. These are the eye shadows that use on a regular basis.
The eyeliner & mascara drawer.
The lipstick, lip liner & gloss drawer.
Colored shadow for special occasions.
A drawer for colored liners & cream liners
Back up supplies, bought on sale with coupons.
Soft head bands & claw clips
A drawer for elastic bands & clips
A drawer for combs & barrets
Over sized earrings
A drawer for watches.
And this is the finished reorganization of all of my makeup.

    I've been using one of those for my makeup for a couple of years now. I don't have nearly that much makeup so one of the cabinets is enough for mine. Really makes it easier to keep everything together at your fingertips!
