How can you keep your favorite beauty essentials and accessories accessible while avoiding clutter? You can keep your vanity organized with a few easy tricks and a couple of organizers. Here are 4 must-dos to keep in mind:

1. Use different decorative containers to keep everything in place. Small dishes can be used for your rings.

2. Transfer lotions to a pump bottle and keep cotton balls and buds in glass containers.

3. Keep your perfume bottles on a pretty tray.

4. Hang earrings off the side of a deep dish and keep necklaces untangled with jewelry stands.

RL Tip: Spruce up your dresser by adding a beautiful stool or tiny slipper chair. If you are sharing your dresser with your husband, make sure that he has the essentials as well such as a mirror, a tray to hold his cologne, and catchalls for his watches and loose change. You can get these organizers in masculine materials like leather, woven fibers, and metal.
