Do you stop yourself from buying more makeup simply because you don’t have enough space on your tabletop or in your drawers?

Keeping your cosmetics organised is a way to save time and even money, as it prevents things from going missing and spilling all over one another.

The best way to do so is by getting yourself a makeup organiser. Sorting out your stash could also give an odd sense of satisfaction when your collection of lipsticks, eyeshadows, concealers and everything else are sitting in neat rows and compartments.

To help you find the “ideal one”, check out this list that could help you to begin decluttering.

Why Use A Makeup Organiser?

If you’re a makeup lover, you’re probably aware of how fast your collection can expand. It can be tough to keep everything in order with all the different products you have. Plus, you don’t use most of the products often.

That’s where an organiser can really save the day. Instead of dumping on your beauty and skincare products in a drawer, you can use a drawer, storage box, or a makeup case to organise the ones you use daily and keep those that aren’t often used separately, perhaps in the drawer.

A makeup organiser does more than just organising your beauty products; it serves as a multifunctional tool in your beauty routine. Here’s how:

Allows quick access to different makeup items, saving time during the beauty routine.

  • Keeps makeup products protected from damage, such as spills or breakage.
  • Help maximises space, especially in smaller areas like bathrooms or vanities.
  • Easy to pack your beauty essentials when they’re accessible in a single place.
  • Adds a visually pleasing aspect to the makeup area, enhancing the overall look of the space.
  • Using a transparent organiser avoids you from purchasing the same product. Plus, it makes it easier to find what you need.

Organise Your Products According To How Often You Use Them

The idea of a makeup organiser is to keep your vanity looking clean and tidy while making it easy to find what you need. One way to do this is by arranging your products based on how often you use them. Those that you don’t use often, you can store them separately, perhaps in your vanity drawer.

For the ones you use on a daily basis, here’s how you can organise them well:

  • Put the taller items at the back and the shorter ones in front so everything is visible.
  • Use drawers, trays to keep flatter beauty products like makeup palettes.
  • Keep your favourite products in a separate bin or pouch for quick access, because nobody wants to search for their concealer when they’re in a rush.

Cotton Swab Organiser

We know it’s common to use cotton swabs directly from the package, but this could lead you to leaving them anywhere – on your vanity, in the drawer, or by your nightstand, depending on when you use them last.

Cotton Pad Organiser

Again, similar to cotton swabs, leaving cotton pads in their packaging is totally fine. But, for cotton pads, they usually come in large packages that can take up a lot of space. To avoid this, we recommend using a small, stackable organiser. It’s compact and won’t occupy much space in your bathroom or vanity area.

And if you’re someone who does their skincare routine in the bathroom, right after a shower, you can place this organiser on your bathroom shelves. This way, your cotton pads are easily accessible without taking up valuable space on your vanity table.
