For beauty products

Keep your vanity spic-and-span by organizing your cosmetics and other essentials. To do this, prepare a plain white board and a couple of magnets. Lean the board against the wall. You may choose to leave it as is or you may decorate it with colorful paper or washi tape.

Once done, work on the cosmetics. Attach magnets at the back of each using a glue gun or any strong adhesive. Make sure that each magnet is secure before placing each item carefully on the board.
