When you’re devoted to makeup and other beauty goodies, your bathroom and vanity tend to look like a shuffled Sephora — trust us, we know. You promised yourself you’re going to clean out your makeup drawer, but the task seems so dreary that you never seem to manage to work up the willpower to tackle it. But did you know that organising the space where you get ready can cut short your prep time (more time to enjoy that morning latte!), not to mention the decluttering will spruce up your makeup station? Did that convince you to ditch the beauty clutter? Yeah? Now, let’s do some organising!
Fancy those trendy, acrylic makeup trays? Pick the right one for your makeup products.
Because it’s transparent, this organisation solution makes it easier to see everything and gives structure to your beauty clutter. But not all makeup trays are the same. A shallow tray keeps products flat, an ice cube tray-like one will line eyeshadow pots in rows, while the one with tall and narrow compartments are perfectly sized for sticks and pencils to hold them upright. Lucky if you find a tray with a hole on both sides to serve as handles – this is handy when it’s time to downsize or when you need to transport your makeup collection.
