Keep Your Makeup Collection Looking as Good as You
Having a large collection of makeup ensures you will always have the beauty tools you need at your fingertips to complete any look. It is important to keep all this makeup organized so you can find what you need quickly without damaging any of it in the process. Having a system of storage in place prevents damage, loss, and frustration. Following these five steps towards perfect organization will make looking your best easier than ever before.
1. Get Everything in One Place – The Starting Step to Makeup Storage
The first stage to achieving a perfectly organized system of makeup storage is to gather all of your makeup in one place. Many women have different bags containing makeup scattered around their bedroom, bathroom, or purse. The fact that a woman’s makeup collection is so spread out is one of the key reasons why knowing exactly what makeup she owns at any one time or where it is can be difficult. Once every possible place has been searched for elusive makeup, then it is time to begin the organization process itself.
2. Organize Makeup into Types
If a makeup collection is going to be organized in the most useful way possible, it is vital to separate all of the pieces into various categories. All of the mascara should be placed alongside the other mascara, all of the foundation with other foundation, and so on. This is important for a few reasons. First, it allows a woman to take a quick glance at her entire collection and realize what types of makeup she owns an abundance of and what she needs to stock up on. This is not possible if all of the different types of makeup are lumped together in a bag, box, or other place. Second, it makes finding exactly what is needed at any point quick and easy. If a girl is looking for her lipstick then she does not have to sort through a pile of other types of makeup before finding it. Third, it will make it easier to see which makeup is or will be expired.
3. Separate Types into Categories
Once the makeup has been sorted into individual categories, it is important to separate these categories even further. For example, once a lady has put all her lipsticks into one place, she may wish to sort this collection further into different shades, lipstick that is more appropriate for day or evening use, and even fancier makeup from cheaper varieties. The exact way in which each category of makeup is sorted will depend very much upon the woman who owns it. The important point of this stage is not the exact method by which each type of makeup is further categorized. Rather, it is to separate each category in a way that particular woman will find useful. If a woman was a fan of nail polish, for example, and owned many different shades and colors, then she may find it most useful to organize this type of makeup from lightest to darkest. A woman who prefers only red nail polish may wish to sort her nail polish from most to least expensive. This step is highly personal and requires a woman to fully understand her own personal priorities when it comes to cosmetics.
4. Find A Suitable Storage Location
There is no point in taking the time to follow these steps towards perfect makeup organization if the entire collection ends up getting lumped back together or stored incorrectly. There are several ways of avoiding this problem. It is possible to buy specialty makeup storage units which enable different categories of makeup to be kept separately from one another and then to divide each category up further. This is a great idea for keeping everything organized. A girl may then wish to load up a small makeup bag from this collection containing what is needed for a social event or other occasion.
There are alternatives to purchasing a specialty makeup organization product like the one mentioned. It is possible to keep all the different categories of makeup in small bags or pouches that keep them tidy and separate from one another. Other girls choose to place each category on a different part of her dressing table. Whatever the way it is achieved, the key idea is to keep a collection organized in the above three steps separate from one another. However this happens is dependent on personal preference, imagination, and available space.
5. Keep the Collection Organized
If the first four steps have been followed, a girl’s makeup collection will be organized and tidy in a way that makes her friends envious. It is easy to slip back into bad habits, however! Just as makeup needs to be carefully removed and reapplied every day, it is important to maintain the tidiness and order of the makeup collection itself. This involves making sure different types of makeup do not get mixed up with one another and that old and outdated makeup is removed from the collection and replaced by brand new alternatives. This final step will keep a makeup collection as fresh as the face it is applied to.
Final Thoughts on Organizing Makeup
Makeup storage and organization may seem like a big task at first, but once the initial four stages have taken place, it is a matter of following the fifth step and keeping everything in its place. Having properly stored makeup allows a girl to know exactly what she has and what she needs. It saves precious time when getting ready for a night out or other occasion. It also can save money by helping a lady know exactly what makeup is in her collection so she does not buy the same thing twice because of untidiness. These simple steps will set any woman on the road to glamour and beauty.
