How to organize your beauty products

Let’s face it, if you deal with early mornings, unexpected wardrobe malfunctions and rushing to get out the door, anything to bring calm to your daily routine is probably on your top 10 list.

Whether you are off to the daycare center or heading into the office, you always want to look great, right? You never know when you’ll run into your boss, or (gulp) that old friend from school at the grocery store. I know we try our best to establish a daily routine, but with kids, school functions, play dates, taking care of the home and long days at the office—our idea of a planned-out schedule immediately goes out the window.

A way to conquer the madness may be something as simple as infusing a little organization into your everyday life. Don’t get me wrong. In a perfect world, our homes would be immaculate, well-organized and never in chaos. But who has the time?

Most of us cringe at the thought of adding just one more thing to our “to-do” lists: organizing our lives. But, in fact, there are little things you can do to bring a feeling of Zen back into your life.

We normally put ourselves last on the list when getting ready for the day ahead. Not everyone has the luxury of frequenting the spa, but you can pamper yourself by keeping your daily go-to items tidy and at your fingertips. Here’s how:

  • CREATE A PERSONALIZED BEAUTY STATION. It doesn’t matter if you have a spacious bathroom or a tight, cramped space. Use the space you’ve got to put your beauty items at the ready. Unless you have a home beauty salon (a lofty dream of mine), separate the cosmetic “gotta-haves” from the “occasional-going-out” necessities. Put those daily essentials in a tiered organizer or handy caddy.
  • ONLY KEEP THE BARE NECESSITIES. It’s tempting to go crazy in the cosmetics aisle at your favorite store, but makeup has a shelf life that you should keep in mind. Buy small palettes of blush, eye shadow, and powders that are compact and easy to stash either inside a makeup organizer or inside a makeup bag when you are on the go.
  • KEEP COSMETICS VISIBLE. Are you constantly rummaging around to find your favorite lip gloss or eye shadow and come up empty-handed? Keep them visible so you know what you have and can easily find what you need.
  • AVOID THE CLUTTER. I know it’s sometimes easier to just keep everything you need right on the bathroom counter or vanity. Consider keeping only what you need and storing larger items like hand lotion, facial masks, and larger beauty products inside a cabinet. Make storing them fun by keeping them inside a rotating spinner. It’s convenient and keeps everything contained!
  • KEEP IT PRETTY. Make sure to always have cotton balls, swabs, wedges and rounds on hand. I go through tons of them! While you’re at it, store them in cute jars to add a little fun to your routine!
  • ADD SOME BLING. How many times have you found yourself out the door and wish you had grabbed a necklace, your watch or earrings? No time, right? Keep them right where you can see them. Hang them up so you can grab and go!
  • ACCESSORIZE. It’s amazing what a fashion scarf or a cool belt can do to spruce up everyday wear, so make a statement and keep your go-to accessories neat and ready to go in your closet.
  • HAVE A GREAT HAIR DAY! Make your hair care essentials less of a chore to haul out and actually use to make yourself pretty! Put them all in one place to make blow drying and styling less of a hassle and more effortless.
  • KEEP IT SIMPLE. Staying organized doesn’t have to take a lot of effort, endless reorganizing or hiring a professional. It merely takes a few minutes to implement these handy tips to make your mornings less crazy and bring a little beauty back into your daily routine.
  • RELAX! We’re all busy. I get it. But bringing a little sense of order can make a big difference in our jam-packed lives. And IF you do find a few stolen moments, kick back, grab that cup of green tea or a fruity drink and enjoy the comforts of keeping it simple….and organized!
