Easy tips on how to organise your make-up so your morning routine is stress free

How to tackle the mess of products we use every day to get ourselves ready for work, so that it doesn’t it take so much time to get ready for work and just start your day.  Today we share some handy tips for organising your make-up that we’ve tried.

How unorganised clutter slows you down

Most working mothers are always rushed in the morning, between the kids and getting ready for work, there is no time to be always trying to find items you use every day while they are scattered all over the place.

In order to attempt to conquer morning chaos, in my house, I have found ways of organising make-up that I use all the time in a way that allows me to find them easily when I need them

Today I am going to show how I organise my make-up and toiletries so my mornings are easier

  1. Find a space

Firstly I cleared a shelf in my wardrobe cupboard and I used it to keep all my essentials. I made sure it is at eye-level, so it easy for me to see everything at first glance.  It is next to a window so there is natural light and has ample space.

The shelf is setup in a way that allows easy access, makeup stand is right upfront, with the wetwipes next the body and skin care products , my jewely case, a case for sunglasses at the back, and on the right at the back 2 cosmetics bags, one my travel cosmetic bag and the other to keep my sanitary ware items

2. Decultter and organise

You need to choose which things are essentials.  So I went through the process of decluttering and getting rid of samples and products I never use at all.  I then, separate items according to their purposes, for instance, Bath items together, Body/Skin care products such as body lotions and sunscreen are together.

Facial Skincare products are together with all the tools such as cotton swabs and earbuds.

I use plastic containers and gift boxes to sort all the products together, so that everything has a home

This box contains a mixture of body lotions, facial moisturisers and other body skin care products

THE ORGANISATION SYSTEM

BODY & HAIR CARE PRODUCTS

All my body care products are stored together, I use an assortment of body lotions, Bio Oil, Cellulite cream, I also create my own mixture of lotions I like with Bio-oil and baby oil, which works for my dry skin.

As my hair is currently natural, there are products I use to nourish and protect my hair every day and these are kept in the same box

ORGANISED MAKE-UP

For my daily makeup products, I have stored this in a makeup organiser that I bought from clicks. It has compartments when I can properly store lipsticks, brushes, sponges,etc, and easily get to each item as I need it.  This sits right at the front as it is used daily.

I keep a double sided mirror, which has one maginified side in the same shelve as the other items.

This cupboard is right next to the window where an amazing light comes in, which is great as I can apply my makeup there in the morning.

This means that I can apply my makeup there, and leave those products in that shelve when I am done

MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS

I also keep the following items on this shelf:

  • A packed travel toiletry bag, this is useful as I travel a lot, it is packed with travel size items of what I could need, I keep it fully stocked and once something finishes I replenish it as soon as I come home from my trip
  • A large packet of baby wipes – I love baby wipes as I feel they can clean anything, so I use them to clean up makeup mistakes and spills, clean my hands, clean the kids hands really anything that needs cleaning .
  • Sanitaryware – I keep all my sanitary wear in a special cosmetic bag in this shelves always accessible
  • A small Mirrored jewellery box – I love this, I think it was a gift, it beautiful and has 2 shelves where I store my earrings that I wear often so I that I can quickly change when I need to

Another Tip: I keep a pair of earrings small ones , in my handbag for emergencies

This way of keeping things may not work for everyone but it helps me keep my sanity.

    Lindi, I am so impressed with your organization. This looks like a great system to find what you need quickly and also be able to see what’s there and what’s almost gone so you can replace it. I need to work on cleaning out my vanity drawers, there seems to be more in them that I never use. And the things I do use set on top of the counter, looking messy. Thanks for the push, I really need to get at this, it will make my day easier and my husband will be happier when he looks at my side of the counter! LOL
