Being a beauty editor, I completely understand not wanting to get rid of those perfect nail polishes I keep accumulating (because one day I’ll wear all of them) but not having enough space to store them. That’s why I decided to test out some unique ways to house my beauty products. Thankfully, a few of them worked out. Here, I’m sharing with you my new tricks to better-organized makeup.
Trick #1: Use the ledge on your hanging mirror or pictures
This is perfect for nail polishes, or small containers for concealers and creams. Plus, you’ll also add a touch of femininity and color to your room if you place bright, pretty nail polishes on the ledge.
Trick #2: Utilize cake stands for decorative storage
If you’re like me, you probably don’t bake cakes, but that doesn’t mean they can’t come in handy. There are some really pretty cake stands for cheap you can find at Target, Wal-Mart or even a department store. Using cake stands to organize makeup like foundations, polishes and even skincare can be one of the chicest ways to keep your products together, while making them look pretty.
Trick #3: Utilize cute vintage and antique boxes
These may be better for your polishes, since they usually don’t allow much space. But stacking antique boxes full of beauty products can be an ideal way of decorating your room and de-cluttering your medicine cabinet.
Trick #4: Make old or cheap picture frames work for you
Ever wondered what do to with those picture frames you’ve seen laying around your place and never used? This could be your best idea. Laying the frames down flat, place your favorite products on for display. I’d suggest grouping polishes, lipsticks and small creams on different frames to keep them organized.
