4 Easy Ways to Improve Your Makeup Corner
Keep your beauty products in place and avoid clutter at all times
To be able to prepare efficiently each morning, you need to have a clutter-free and organized vanity area. We can just imagine how disorienting it could be to face each day with brushes, makeup, and different bottles scattered all over your table!
With these four easy tips, you can keep your special corner spic-and-span while displaying your collection of must-have cosmetics and accessories:
Opt for natural lighting
If you love achieving the natural look, you can ace it by working with natural light. As much as possible, avoid bright white and dim yellow light as it may leave you with a face that's either too light or shadowy. Consider placing your vanity corner near a window so you can make the most of natural light.
Every beauty product and affordable accessory has an expiration date. When yours starts smelling funky or begins building rust, let it go. Also, some beauty products, like eyeshadow, are sensitive to heat. As a general rule, don’t store any of your items where they’ll be exposed to direct sunlight.
Categorize your products per color
If you love collecting makeup, we're sure that you have different kinds of lipsticks, brushes, and cosmetics. Keep these essentials in place by placing them in small drawers. If you have different colors of the same item, label each drawer with the color family each product belongs to: red, pink, and orange for your lipsticks and blush, and darks (like black and brown), pinks, and brights (think blue and yellow) for your eye shadows.
Segregate your accessories according to length
Do you have the habit of keeping your necklaces and bracelets in one container? You must be dealing with tangled accessories all the time! Use an organizer to deal with this. You can hang your accessories according to length: long necklaces can go on top of your organizer, and bracelets can go at the bottom. If you're feeling creative, you can also group them according to color! Doing this will turn your organizer into an instant decor piece for your room
