This topic is long overdue- its time to talk about re-organizing and de-cluttering my makeup products and tools!!!
Since the construction of my vanity, I have been struggling to move, rearrange, and reorganize all of my makeup, tools and accessories. Currently, my makeup has been moved from the bathroom, where I used to get ready, to my bedroom, where my vanity is. I have put together all powders, single shadows, foundations, etc. together in containers, but since have added new products that are just strewn all over as well as miscellaneous items creating chaos and clutter.
After watching Tati Westbrook throw a small tantrum about her makeup organization on her channel I found it hit way to close to home and decided it was time to start getting a hold on my own makeup collection.
I decided to break my organization project down into different categories so it would feel less overwhelming. Today, I started with my makeup brushes. My makeup brushes were the last of the makeup tools in the bathroom to be moved into the bedroom/vanity area, and I figured they could use a good thorough organization, then washing.
Here are some before and after pics of the project:
Too many brushes in too many different spots!
My emptied nightstand in the closet, a perfect place to store my brushes!
I purchased six of each size container at the Dollar Tree as separators for my organization projects
Top and bottom drawers organized by brush types L-R
- Flat shadow
- Fluffy/ large flat head brushes
I was even left with one drawer which I put to good use for storing some of my eye shadow palettes
- Before: in a separate storage drawer
- After: organized in night stand drawer
Overall, I feel super accomplished by finishing this project and I am ready to tackle some more organization tomorrow. Speaking of tomorrow, I do have some things planned for you so keep an eye out!
