HACK #1: Stash your makeup in a pretty box
First things first, if you have a problem with makeup strewn all over your desk or stuffed into a drawer, making it impossible to find anything, start with some simple organisation. Grab a couple of these boxes and sort your kit by product – one box for lipstick, one for eye shadows and so on.
HACK #2: Use a shower shelf organiser for perfume and polish
These handy little shelf organisers are ideal for storing all those bottles of perfume and polish you have standing around. Put them up in your dressing area and fill with pretty fragrance bottles.
HACK #3: Fill a pretty tumbler for your makeup brushes
A gorgeous tumbler, unused kitchen jar or funky tumbler makes an ideal makeup brush holder. Fill with coffee beans and add your brushes.
HACK #4: Keep it all together behind your door
If your makeup collection is getting obscene and you’re in dire need of extra storage, this is a great hack. Hang this organiser on the back of your bathroom door for convenient access to all your kit. See-through pockets will help you find your goodies.
HACK #5: Use a magnetic strip for tools
These self-adhesive magnetic strips are ideal for small makeup tools like tweezers, scissors, eyelash curlers and anything else that will stick.
