Do you have issues remembering to clear off the sink & put all of your makeup away when you’re finished getting ready?
Confession time! Our small bathroom doesn’t allow for a lot of storage space, and I am not exactly the type of person who will take a makeup bag out of the drawer, set it neatly on the counter, and then use each item, replace it in the bag, and neatly put it away when I’m finished.
I tried the whole makeup bag thing. I really did. There were just too many steps involved and too little counter space for any attempts at anything even remotely neat-looking, so things just weren’t getting put away. Ever. My bathroom sink started looking like some kind of mascara massacre crime scene.
Guess what?? I found the solution!!
Cut out the middle man.
I got rid of my makeup bag (gasp!) and only use it for traveling now. For my day-to-day routine, I keep everything organized inside the door of my medicine cabinet. It’s all right there within easy reach, and each item has a spot where I can see it & put it right back when I’m finished. I LOVE IT.
These little beauties are called StickOn Pods. They have adhesive backs and adjustable compartments, so I can switch them around if I need different storage options for my makeup. Right now, I store regular & waterproof mascara, under eye concealer, eyeliners, my lash curler, a mini eyeshadow palette, tweezers, and makeup brushes.
My bottom bin is the 3M Command Medium Organizer, and it holds the larger products: foundation, blush, gel & powdered bronzers, and an eyeshadow palette.
Seriously, cutting out the extra step of keeping stuff in a makeup bag has been amazing. It is SO easy to stay organized because I don’t have to think about anything, it saves time because I’m not digging through a big makeup bag, and I love being able to see everything all the time when I’m getting ready. SO awesome!!
