2. Categorise your makeup
When you are getting ready, time is precious and knowing where everything is can save you a surprising amount of it. Organising or grouping your products not only makes it simpler to track down certain products, it also makes it easier to know exactly what you have. When everything is strewn in a drawer, it is quite possible to forget you have something and before you know it, it is out of date.
3. Invest in good storage solutions
Acrylic is very popular for makeup storage
and rightly so; the crystal clear construction means you can instantly spot what you want as you are able to see the whole item meaning there is no need to keep lifting items out to check the colour or brand. Quite a lot of makeup comes with attractive and sometimes extravagant packaging, therefore if you have invested in quality makeup, you will want to show them off, not hide them away. Another benefit of clear acrylic containers is that they won’t clash with your home décor and there’ll be no need to replace them if you decide to change your colour scheme. Larger acrylic display cubes
allow you to group upright toiletries together and because they are fully sealed, they will protect your vanity or desk from stains and damage. Smaller cubes are perfect for makeup brushes or wand shaped items such as mascaras and lip-glosses.
If you prefer a more rustic look, wooden makeup storage
units have a more scandi feel. Bamboo is a new eco-friendly choice that is growing in popularity; it is naturally strong and waterproof, meaning it can be used in both bedrooms and bathrooms.
4. Make use of vertical space
When it comes to makeup storage for small spaces, you don’t have to fret; tiered acrylic risers
and counter displays increase your space whilst taking up very little of it. Staggered levels mean that products aren’t hidden away behind others and with a quick glance you can spot exactly what you need. They come in a range of sizes so whether it is for a nail polish collection or an assortment of foundations, there is a storage solution for you.
5. Make use of labelling
For increased efficiency, consider adding some cute labels to your acrylic storage. Chalk pens
are a quick way to add identifiers and if you change your makeup setup, you can simply wash it off with water. If you would like something a little more detailed, you can purchase personalised stickers in a variety of styles and simply stick them onto the front.
6. Prevent spillages
When you are in a rush, accidents can happen and there is nothing worse than using additional time to clear up spilled makeup, especially when this can be prevented. Non slip mats can be placed on top of your vanity, inside your dressing table drawers and in your acrylic storage units to prevent products slipping about. You can easily cut the material to size so there are no limits to where you can use it.
7. Regularly clear and clean your collection
To keep your acrylic organisers in tip top shape, it is best to dust your containers and clear any smears and spillages off with a gentle cleaner
at least once a month. We have all been guilty of it, you spring clean something once and then you forget about it until next year. To help keep your makeup organised, you will need to regularly clear out old products or you will soon end up with quite the stash again. Whilst you are cleaning your makeup storage, it is a great time to do a quick check of your makeup to see if any products need to be discarded.
