I've got a huge confession to make. I have not sorted through my makeup collection not once this entire year! I have brought new makeup throughout the year but I can never seem to find those new things after a week. YES, IT'S GOTTEN THAT BAD! So of course I wanted to share the low down on how I plan to get my makeup collection in order.
My first order of business was to clean out my makeup collection. Maybe the reason I can't find anything is because I don't throw away broken and used up product. I'm sure some of you have the same issue. So definitely start with getting rid of the clutter. This will allow you to see what you really have that you can use. Nothing is more annoying than not being able to find what you're looking for because of stuff you don't use.
The other thing that is absolutely helpful is grouping products together. Whether you have a makeup organization container or separate containers like I do, do yourself a favor and put the lipsticks with the lipsticks. LOL! It's sounds basic but when you're organizing it is best to make it as easy as possible on yourself. I'd like to think that you actually want to wear what you've paid for. I know I do.
Lastly, figure out a place to store all of your neatly sorted makeup collection. Makeup cases and holders are great but they can be bulky for those of you who have lots of products. Also they don't quite have the space for eye shadow palettes. I think having a container to store your everyday items in and then a drawer with containers like I use is best. Though I have yet to purchase a makeup case I'm thinking of doing so.
