Sort through your make-up products

Step 1:Clean up your products!

Most women will agree, the bathroom drawers are full of beauty products, makeup and multiple accessories.

From year to year, we sometimes accumulate products that we use very rarely. Make-up brushes, palettes and mascaras mix together in our toilet bags, which find themselves far too full. A mascara here, a lipstick there? Impossible to see clearly on her beauty paraphernalia. Result:whether in the make-up bag or in the drawers, it's a mess!

This is whybefore starting to organize your storage, you should sort .

The first step in your storage will therefore be to take out all of your products and get rid of any damaged, used, expired or unused products.

Take everything out and clear out your shelves, drawers and pencil cases. This is also an opportunity to dust on the shelves which is often inaccessible given the number of brushes and other make-up products that invade the space in bulk. Take a large garbage bag and don't hesitate for a second, you will see it much more clearly afterwards!

Step 2:classify your makeup by product type

Now you will have to classify your products by category to see more clearly.

This way you will quickly see what you need and you will have the possibility to find out which products you have duplicates. For example, if you find two identical lipstick shades, why not keep one accessible in your bathroom and another in your purse?

To be able to optimize your storage , put yourself on a work surface or a large table and separate your different products by category:

  • Accessories:sponges, brushes, etc.
  • Eye makeup:eyeshadow, palettes, mascara, eyeliner, pencils
  • Lip makeup:lipstick, brushes
  • Makeup for the complexion:foundation, primer, blush
  • Hand care:nails, creams etc

Some products do not require daily use and therefore you can consider that in your drawer or on your shelf, the most useful products for your day make-up . For example, evening make-up can be placed in a different jar than daytime or at least put in the background.
