Organization and access are the watchwords when storing your makeup. If you’re like me, someone with limited space but lots of product, keeping all your favorites organized and accessible in one space can be challenging. In today’s video, I’m giving you a glimpse behind the scenes of my daily makeup storage/application area and I show you how I whipped my makeup collection into shape for easy access and frustration-free mornings. As with everything in my life, this video demonstrates a work in progress with some work yet to be done.
Resources for Makeup Organization
This video was inspired by The Konmari Method. The full system can be found in The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo but to be clear, I am not using the Konmari Method in this video. It’s just a jumping off point.
This is the cosmetics organizer featured in the video that I purchased from the Container Store. I got it on sale but even at full price, it’s totally worth the coins. I love the organizers at the Container Store because they’re customizable and buildable. You can start off with the basic pieces, build as your makeup collection grows and maintain a consistent look throughout the process. I also found some other options here and here and GLAMboxes has acrylic organizers with built-in brush holders, drawers and dividers.
I hope you enjoy the video and please let me know what else you’d like to see on my YouTube channel. Drop a comment here on the blog or on the video, your choice! See you soon!
