Have you ever been in a rush and accidentally using a black pencil eyeliner to fill in your brows? It happened to me once and it wasn’t pretty. 

That was when I decided notto store my brow pencils in the same container as my eyeliners. Truth be told, I probably reorganize my makeup way to often but I do find it therapeutic. It’s the perfect opportunity to get rid of all the unused, expired and unloved products that have been taking up space. Plus, it makes getting ready in the morning so much faster.

Here are five tips to keep your make up organized so you can avoid my awkward eyeliner-browliner situation.

This, of course, depends on how large your makeup collection is. If you’re anything like me and have of makeup, do what I do and keep all of your essentials and daily staples on one tray. This way, you’ll have your most-used and loved products stored in one place where they’re easily accessible.

Using dividers is a perfect solution for clustering products together. I keep my makeup organized by category: concealer, bronzers, blushes, etc. If you don’t have drawers then I highly recommend using one of the acrylic makeup organizers.There are many places you can find them online, but you can also get your hands on them in places like home goods discount stores, if you’re lucky.

I probably have about 10 of these and use each one to store different things- empty candle jars are perfect for storing mascaras, lip liners, eyeliners, eye pencils and makeup brushes. It makes things way more accessible on rushed mornings and you won’t have to dig through a bottomless make up bag to find the right brush.

Out of sight, out of mind right? You’d be surprised how many products just sit in your beauty corner forgotten. When it comes to lipsticks, especially ones that are packaged like MAC, where you can’t see the colour until you remove the cap, storing them upside down is something that really helps me out. This is a huge time-saver since it lets you find the shade you need quicker, without having to rummage through your entire collection. For products where you can each shade like nail polishes, store them in a clear container like this cookie jar above.

Alternatively, group your nail polishes according to colour and display them on a cake stand for an accessible and cute display piece. Pretty perfume bottles also display beautifully on this.

When it comes to storing things like nail polishes and perfumes, keep in my mind that they need to be stored in a dry and cool place, so avoid storing them in your bathroom.
