Trays aren’t just great for storing files and documents, but make-up too! Similar to how you organise documents with table trays, organise your makeup according to their functions into different trays to make your vanity table clutter-free. Stay effortlessly neat with this simple solution! Hey, did we forget to mention that it is inexpensive too?

2. Align your items in Magna Pods

This container storage piece comes in a row of three to five pods, depending on the width and circumference. Simply slide your lipsticks (and honestly, whatever cosmetic items) into the pods and a neat and tidy workplace is achieved. One thing that people like about these magna pods is the fact that it is transparent. Just one glance and you can see the different shades of lipsticks that you have. So yes, lipstick fanatics out there, this is definitely useful to keep you in check!

DV Tip: Not taking a fancy of the plain and simple exterior? Try decorating your magna pod with stickers and labels! Not only does it make it more pleasing on the eye, it helps in easy identification of your cosmetics too!

3. Give scent candle jars a second life

Don’t just throw that fancy candle glass away, repurpose it and give it a new life. Place your brushes and eyeliners and you will never need to fret about hunting for it in your make-up pouch. You might want to use decorative stones or coffee beans to put a touch of colour to it.

Do you know?

Coffee beans can be used to neutralise and clear your sense of smell if you have sampled on too many perfume scent. Consider placing a small jar of coffee beans on your dressing table if you have one too many perfumes.

4. Store your hair curlers in magazine stands

That’s right, we are talking about magazine stands that you can find at your everyday bookstores. Keep those unsightly wires in check by placing your hair products (Straighteners, hair-dryers, curlers) in cut-out triangular magazine stands. The idea is to chuck and place it at the corner of your dressing table, simple!

DV Tip: Let your hair curler and straightener cool down before placing it back into the magazine stand. This will prevent the magazine stand from heating up and damaging its structure in time to come.
